2006-2008 Fender Japan ST-62 TX Stratocaster in Vintage White & new hard case



This 2006-2008 Fender Japan 1962 reissue Stratocaster with USA Texas Special Fender pickups and an Alder body is a real players guitar. It has a few chips and dents around the body and there is a little rust on some of the metal parts & when it came in, it had a sticker mark on the front of the guitar. This will eventually fade & disappear but it might take a few years! The guitar really looks good in vintage white with mint green scratchplate & aged parts. The frets are good with no indents (see pics) and it plays really nicely. Please look at the gallery photos as I have tried to highlight all the blemishes I can find. I know from the messages I get that cosmetic issues aren't really a problem as long as the guitar plays well & this one certainly does. The Texas Specials are really great pickups.

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 £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

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
