2006-2008 Fender Japan ST-72US  Stratocaster Vintage White/Maple

£799.00 + shipping






 Here's a really good example of a 70's reissue guitar from Fender Japan. The "US" after the title means that the guitar was factory fitted with Fender USA Vintage Pickups.


This guitar is finished in popular Vintage White with a Maple neck & fretboard. The pickguard is a 3 ply Parchment white & the knobs are a vintage white

The 70's Stratocasters featured Maple necks, large headstock & a bullet trussrod. Other features were a 7.25" fretboard radius, a 3 ply pickguard, chrome block saddles & a 3 point neck bolt with micro-tilt adjustment.

This guitar is in excellent condition considering it is over 15 years old. There are a few very small dents around the guitar that I have photographed & can be seen in the gallery. I haven't repaired them as Vintage White is so difficult to match as the colour fades.  All in all it looks great & the Fender USA Vintage pickups sound fab!

Hard Case Policy


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.  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 £50 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.

If you are further interested in this guitar, you can either email me with any queries & I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.


Or, you can buy quickly and safely using the PayPal "buy now" button and I will ship to most UK addresses the next working day. Highlands and Islands can be slightly dearer but I'll keep the cost as low as I can.

I can accept credit card payments by phone and will also offer a small discount to purchasers using bank transfer payments.

Overseas customers are very welcome but please email me first for shipping quotes.
