1962 RI Fender Stratocaster - circa 1994 Crafted in Japan (for their domestic market) 3 Tone Sunburst
This is a great guitar that I bought from the eBay seller guitargai in June 2005 from his website. I'm only selling this because my style of playing has shifted to flatter boards and bigger frets. These domestic market Japanese Fenders (Crafted in Japan) are superior craftsmanship over the ones exported to the US (Made in Japan). This guitar has a 3 piece alder body, maple neck, rosewood fretboard, 7.25 radius with vintage frets, poly finish and has been shielded with copper tape and a first generation copper guard from Monte Allums website. This came stock with Fender Texas Special Pickups as in the last photo BUT I traded them for 3 Eric Johnson Pickups that are currently loaded. Set up and intonated for 11s with a low action.
This guitar is a player. If you want a wall hanger to show off - look elsewhere. The tuners, tree and screws are tarnished. The frets are worn in the typical spots but has no effect on the sound - especially through the amp. The guard has scratches and dings. The biggest mark on it is from my over-excited son hitting it with a drumstick when he was 4 years old (I had to lay down after that one!). I tried to document all the excentricities with the photos. The mark that is circled is from the drumstick. People pay extra for this from the Custom Shop! Get it here at NO Extra Charge!
The Fender site says that this guitar with the ''N'' serial number is from 94-95.
Comes with the original Fender Gigbag, owner's manual and trem arm.
