1991 Fender Japan Stratocaster '57 Reissue 2TS & Fender USA Vintage Pickups




Here's a really nice example of a '57 reissue by Fender Japan. They do such a good job of replicating the old Strat & Teles & this is no exception. It a faithful 2 tone sunburst finish & looks just like an old Buddy Holly Stratocaster. Single ply 8 hole pickguard, vintage trem etc etc it ticks all the right boxes. This particular guitar has a set of Fender USA Vintage pickups factory fitted too which sound great

This guitar was made in 1991 and is in excellent condition for a 27 year old guitar. There was one small dent on the back of the guitar which has been repaired and is now pretty much invisible. There is a minimal amount of wear to the frets but, to be honest the guitar has been little used. When I gave it a quick set up, the intonation was spot on and the action was very good. This model was sold with vintage US pickups. I managed to find it listed in an old catalogue which you can see in the gallery

Hard Case

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a hard case . I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. This case is a used tweed case which although showing signs of wear, compliments the guitar very well. Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £30 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that i won't ship a guitar in a gigbag
