This beautiful Fender Japan 54 Vintage Reissue Stratocaster started its life in 1994 with a Foto-Flame body. Back then, Fender teamed up with Kodak to introduce new body wrapping technology that allowed to make guitars with flame effect on the bodies without using expensive flamed maple tops for them. 

 

We've replaced the original body with this stunning new Fender Japan basswood body, that has identical design to the original, but comes in a Seafoam Green nitro relic satin finish. This Strat feels and looks like a good ol' friend. The lack of the gloss top coat finish on the body means that this nitro will keep aging gracefully.

 

Original V-shape maple neck has that gorgeous honey amber finish and exhibits minimal wear. Original pickups provide clear and crispy tones and thanks to their flatpole magnet design can be raised all the way up to the strings without that mid-range becoming harsh. Original wiring can be a bit scratchy at times, but everything still works as it should.

 

This instrument received a full professional setup with deep body cleaning, neck deep clean, full electronics check, truss-rod and action and intonation adjustment! Restringed with D'addario 10-46 nickel-plated steel strings.

 

This guitar will be shipped around UK with Parcelforce 24h courier, safely packed into a sturdy guitar cardboard box. 24h courier service provided to UK customers. Worldwide shipping available as well - but please get in touch if you are in EU.

  • DISCLAIMER

    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. 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.
