Since the early 80's infamous 'JV' models, Fender Japan has had a reputation for building some of the best vintage spec Stratocaster reissues around. This Fender Japan ST-62 reissue Stratocaster offers period correct vintage features and looks for an affordable price, with the kind of build quality that has made Japanese instruments so sought after by players, along with a rather fetching Sea Foam Green custom colour finish.
This 2016 Fender Japan ST62 Stratocaster is a wonderful example of the more recent MIJ models. Featuring a traditional Maple neck and slab Rosewood fingerboard, this guitar has a comfortable 1960's style 'C' neck profile, feeling familiar and easy to get around for all players, and if anything is slightly fuller feeling than other MIJ 'C' shaped neck profiles we've played. The three single coil pickups offer a vintage voiced output with all the clarity and chime of a classic Strat. As with all Fender Japan models, this guitar is finished exceptionally, with a beautiful Sea Foam Green finish, and a nice dark piece of Rosewood for the board. Other features include a three ply mint green pick guard, Kluson style tuners and cream aged plastic parts.
