2006/8 Fender Japan ST-62 US Stratocaster in Surf Green & new hard case
£749.00 + shipping
This 2002/4 Fender Japan 1962 reissue Stratocaster is a fantastic example of the quality that comes from their factories. With aged parts & an aged Maple neck it just looks great! This is the better version of the '62 reissues with factory fitted Fender USA vintage pickups which sound excellent. The guitar is around 20 years old and has obviously been played but the all important frets and neck are good & everything is original.
There are just some scratches and some very minor dents & nicks on this guitar. Nothing excessive and the guitar is really nicely played in. For its age I think it's in excellent condition & the guitar is lovely to play. Great neck & with it's aged finish and lovely figuring, it just looks great too.
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 colour is very popular.

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 quickly and safely using the PayPal "buy now" button and I will ship to most UK addresses the next working day. Highlands and Islands can be slightly dearer but I'll keep the cost as low as I can.
I can accept credit card payments by phone and will also offer a small discount to purchasers using bank transfer payments.
Overseas customers are very welcome but please email me first for shipping quotes.
