Purchasing a Fender BROWNIE TRIBUTE STRATOCASTER is just not going to happen.

Why do I find it extremely difficulty finding a Fender two-tone sunburst finish body that matches Brownie?

Even Fender Custom Shop Journeyman Relic Eric Clapton Stratocaster 2-Color Sunbursts don't look like Brownie

That reissue is one ugly thing.

The Eric Johnson Strat body in Sunburst looks very similar.

Brownie has more of the old school spray with the thick outer body band of black to dk brown and then the sunburst part. I haven't seen Fender paint a guitar like that in some time.

Looks like the reissue does have kind of a weird sunburst for sure.

I built this to be more of a Buddy Holly type 54 but you could do the same. I sprayed my body and neck myself but you could get someone to do it for you. The hardest part is getting a decent grain match. This one is 2 piece Ash.

Forgive my ignorance, but is 'Brownie' the guitar that is featured on the front cover if the 1970 'Eric Clapton' album? (I'm colorblind and the photo that BeerBelly posted, and the photo on the album cover are pretty indistinguishable to me.) It was that album cover that was one of my chief influences to buy a Stratocaster.
