2010-2012 Fender Japan ST-57 Reissue Stratocaster Texas Special USA  Pickups 2TS & new hard case



Here's another Fender Japan '57 Reissue Stratocaster, with USA Fender Texas Special pickups & a solid Alder Body. This one is in 2 colour sunburst or sometimes called "Tobacco Burst". It is in superb condition with the only real signs of use on the white scratchplate which has dulled a little. There are no indents on the frets which have probably 75% of their life left.  It also has a Maple fretboard & like most vintage Fenders, a 7.25" (184mm) fretboard radius and an 8 hole single ply scratchplate.

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.  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 £40 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 easily and safely using the PayPal "buy now" button. Don't forget to select the right option using the drop down menu on price, i.e. Collection, UK shipping or EU shipping. If in doubt, please email me first as Highlands & Islands can sometimes be a little dearer for shipping
