Fender Japan Stratocaster '57 Reissue "Rebel Yellow" & new hard case



Here's a bit of an oddity & also a bit of a rarity.  Produced in small numbers as a special edition, these '57 Strats were finished in a Fender Japan colour known as "Rebel Yellow" I suppose it's a bit of a "marmite" colour but it certainly is striking! Being a '57 it has the more curved 7.25" fretboard with the Maple finish & the 8 hole pickguard. The one piece Maple neck is a good one with lots of figuring and some flaming.  With the aged finish it looks great

This guitar was made in 2010-2012 and is in very good condition. There are a few small marks around the body which I have repaired just leaving small lines where the finish was broken. I have photographed all these and you can see them in the gallery. All these marks are now smooth to the touch .  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
