2010/11 Fender Japan '62 Reissue Stratocaster  in Candy Apple Red

with new Hard Case



This popular '62 Reissue from Fender Japan ticks all the right boxes. With it's stunning CAR finish, aged parts & supplied, as always with a brand new hard case. (no gig bags here!) The guitar is practically unmarked & appears to have barely been played with no wear, no chips dents or scratches. Just a few light playing marks on the pickguard

This guitar is all original & was made between 2010 & 2011 according to the serial number. The guitar is fitted with Fender Japan alnico pickups which sound excellent.

This guitar plays as good as it looks. The neck is straight & the action is nice and low. Once again, a guitar that's hard to find in the UK. Please check out the gallery photos which also include a page from the Fender Japan catalogue

As stated many times, due to courier damage, all my guitars are shipped in hard cases (usually new) this one being a plain black one. I do have a tweed option and these are a little dearer (extra £10). If you prefer that, please email me for details. If you are collecting, I'm happy to knock off the price of the case (About £30) & I may even have an old gig bag you can have to take it away in

So to sum up, a nice 62 reissue from Fender Japan. This model is very difficult to find here in the UK.
