Body was made around 1996, neck comes from 2004. Medium C-shape neck has a very nice thickness to it, lacquer on the back is gently worn to a velvet feel. Gorgeous Indian rosewood fretboard has some beautiful wood grain and vintage frets have minimal wear. Alnico V vintage-style pickups provide a broad palette of classic Stratocaster tones, from warm neck to balanced middle and twangy bridge and all those funky "in-betweens".
Wiring has been fully upgraded with USA-spec CTS A250K pots, Oak 5-way switch and Orange Drop capacitor for smooth treble roll off. All mounted on a lovely 3-ply mint green scratchplate. Tremolo system includes a full size steel block for better sustain and resonance. Saddles have surface patina and wear, but all height adjustment screws work smoothly.
This instrument received a full professional setup with deep body cleaning, body polish, neck deep clean, rosewood fretboard lemon oil treatment, full electronics check, truss-rod and action and intonation adjustment. Restringed with Fender 10-46 Nickel-plated steel strings. 24h courier service provided to UK customers.Please note that although we put our heart and soul and also all our knowledge into every single guitar we sell, a setup is a personal preference and we cannot give any guarantees. However, we try to get the best playability out of every guitar and set them up so you can play both rhythm and lead.
We also pull them all apart to clean and check every single component and replace all unreliable parts with new ones, from dodgy pots to the whole wiring, tuners, string trees, nuts and etc. All the work done is described in detail in the listing.
We make sure that every guitar we sell is problem free and take full responsibility for the accuracy of our listing descriptions. All photographs are done by a professional photographer and processed on a calibrated monitor. Some colours might look slightly different on your monitor, but we will always put the official Fender colour name in the listing description, so please study pictures of other guitars with the same colour if you are unsure. We focus on finding great quality guitars and making them reliable and inspiring to play. MODEL: Fender Japan 62 Vintage Reissue Stratocaster.
