2010-12 Fender Japan ST-62 US Stratocaster in 3 Tone Sunburst & new hard case



This 2010/12 Fender Japan 1962 reissue Stratocaster with USA Fender pickups had been so little used, it still had the protective film on the pickguard when it came in. This was coming away making it look quite scruffy so I have taken it off. The condition of the guitar was described by the Japanese seller as "A beautiful item" & they weren't kidding. It's in fantastic overall condition & I would describe it as "near mint"

Fender Japan have always made great reissues with superb build quality & attention to detail & this guitar is no exception. The USA vintage pickups sound really good & it plays as good as it looks. Not one to hang around very long. This finish is very popular.
