2020 Fender Made in Japan Traditional Series 70's Stratocaster Ash Natural & new Hard Case

£819.00 + shipping






Here we have a great 70's Reissue from Fender which is from their highly rated "Traditional Series"


With it's solid Ash body, Maple neck & fingerboard and eggshell pickguard and matching pickup covers, switch tip & tremolo arm tip, it looks gorgeous!


The grain of the Ash looks fantastic. It has been little used. I had a good look but can't find any other similar guitars for sale in the UK. Other than one small repaired dent which is shown in the gallery, it's in fantastic condition. The frets have no visible wear & the guitar is an absolute pleasure to play.


Here's some blurb from Fender:


Made in Japan Traditional Series


Made in Japan Traditional series derived by combining the aesthetics of Fender's traditional musical instrument production with the sophisticated craftsmanship of Japan. Fender's orthodox DNA is a reliable Made in Japan quality. I will be resurrected. Made in Japan Traditional '70s Stratocaster® has a gloss finish ash body. A 9.5-inch radius "U" shaped maple neck with 21 vintage-style frets provides a classic performance that is unique to the Traditional series. The 6-saddle vintage style Synchronized Tremolo bridge, and the original pickups selected for the Traditional series, produce realistic, musical vintage tones. The narrowly designed nut width makes it easy for Japanese players to play. Solid guitar craftsmanship and flexible answers to player needs are reflected in this series.

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.
