Fender Japan ST57-US Stratocaster in Ocean Turquoise Metallic 2006/8 & new hard case



Here's an excellent example of the ever popular '57 Reissue stratocaster in Ocean Turquoise Metallic. With it's one piece Maple neck and 7.25" radius fretboard  this is, as usual an excellent reissue stratocaster. This one has Fender USA vintage pickups & an authentic single ply 8 hole pickguard

This guitar was made in 2006/8 and is in near mint condition. It had a tiny dent on the top when it came in. This has been filled & polished & is smooth to the touch. I have shown it on the photographs but in truth it's really hard to see.  A few very faint playing marks and that's about it.  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
