Beautiful Fender Japan Stratocaster up for sale! It is hard to believe that this guitar is 25 years old, apart from a couple of tiny dings on the body and some surface wear on the scratchplate this feels almost new.
Made in the famous FujiGen factory in Japan around 1995, this Stratocaster comes in Leo Fender's favourite finishes - Candy Apple Red. Body has lovely natural resonance and balanced weight, neck boasts beautiful satin finish, that will never get sticky on a particularly sweaty gig. Flatter more modern 9.5-inch fretboard radius allows for better playability and easier string bending and slim C-shape maple neck will suit the majority of players. Original light staggered pickups have crystal-clear tones and detailization without any harshness.
Tuners have been upgraded to Fender USA for better reliability and saddles have been upgraded to brand new bent steel Fender saddles. There are tiny holes visible from the original tuners on the back of the headstock.
This instrument received a full professional setup with deep body cleaning, body polish, neck deep clean, full electronics check, truss-rod and action and intonation adjustment. Restringed with Fender 10-46 Nickel-plated steel strings.

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.
