1989 Fender Stratocaster'62 Vintage Reissue Danelectro Lipstick Pickups Japan
Up for sale, a 1989 Fender Stratocaster'62 vintage reissue in excellent condition and in perfect working order, upgraded with a trio of full-size Danelectro-style lipstick pickups. An early Fender Japan Strat made at the famed Fujigen factory, this guitar boasts a gloss finish that presumably was closer to Burgundy Mist in 1989, but has gracefully aged to a warm shade of Copper with subtle metalflake. Presumably produced by Chandler given the distinctive brass mounting plate and wiring style, these lipstick pickups offer a glassy, smooth sound with distinctive hollow twang and great percussive cut. The guitar weighs 8lbs, delivering a b old and clear acoustic voice with great string to string clarity. We've had this Stratocaster professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation. The maple neck has a slender C profile, indicative of a true 62 shape, tapering fuller up the board and measuring. 815 deep at the 1st fret and. The rosewood fretboard is a particularly thick slab and a very dark and tight-grained cut of rosewood, with a vintage spec 7 1/4 radius. The original slender frets are intact and remarkably clean, with just a touch of wear beneath the plain strings on frets 1-3 and virtually no wear further up the fretboard. The neck is straight, the truss rod is ideally adjusted, and the guitar plays well in every register. The nut measures 1 5/8 in width, and on the headstock, the guitar is fitted with a set of upgraded Kluson-style Schecter staggered tuning machines that hold pitch well and are engineered for ideal break angle for each string across the nut.
On the neck heel, the original 1989 pencil date is intact. All of the electronics function as intended, with the trio of lipstick pickups wired to the original Fender Japan pots and switch.
The chrome hardware on the bridge base, jack cup, and Fender-embossed neck plate is extremely clean, with uniform patina across the bridge saddles. The vibrato has a full-size block, and the vibrato engages very smoothly with three springs for expressive warbles and dives.
Cosmetic wear is limited to scuffing on the back lower bout edge, and only a few additional small nicks on the body as a whole. The ambered gloss on the neck profile is very clean with only a few tiny nicks. The original Fender-branded gigbag is included.
