Fender Japan ST-362 Stratocaster US 2 TS & new hard case



This Fender Japan ST-362 was made between 1997 & 2000. The 362 was a standard Stratocaster from Fender Japan. It looks similar to a '57 Reissue but it has a Basswood body and "white" rather than aged parts. Tbh it would be very easy & cheap to change the pickup covers, knobs and switches. This guitar also has USA Fender pickups fitted which is a nice bonus. These look to have been factory fitted or if not this has been very neatly done

This guitar had a few scrapes and dents, the most noticeable is shown in the photos. It is next to the tremolo arm hole. I have filled and smoothed & polished it & it is heaps better than when it came in but still visible. The lower price tag reflects this. This is a good workhorse Strat and has many years life left in it. The pickups sound great as you would expect

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
