Fender Japan Stratocaster '72 Reissue Black & Fender USA  Pickups



Japanese Import

Here's a nice example of a '72 reissue by Fender Japan. They do such a good job of replicating the old Strat & Teles & this is no exception. All black body but with a Maple Neck & fretboard. Large 70's style headstock & . 3 ply 11 hole pickguard, vintage trem, 3 bolt neck with micro tilt adjustment etc etc it ticks all the right boxes. This particular guitar has a set of Fender USA pickups which were  fitted from new

This guitar was made in 2006/8 and is in excellent condition. There are a few really small marks around the body which are too small to photograph. There were a couple of dents in the front which I have repaired. If you look at the last few photos in the gallery, you can see "before" and "after" shots. The result was excellent. In my experience, either black or Sunburst guitars are the easiest to repair finish blemishes. When I gave it a quick set up, the intonation was spot on and the action was very good

Hard Case

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. This case can be upgraded to a very nice tweed one but these are an additional £12 each at present.Please contact me before purchasing if you would like this. 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
