1991 Fender Order Made '57 Stratocaster Butterscotch Ash w/ Gold Hardware, Japan MIJ Fujigen

$2,199.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1991 Fender "Order Made" Stratocaster ‘57 vintage reissue model ST57 in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. This rare “Made in Japan” Stratocaster was produced as part of the Order Made program, which offered a bevy of non-catalog finish and component options; this Strat features a full complement of gold hardware and a gloss Butterscotch finish on the ash body.

Acoustically, this Strat has a very rewarding natural spank and tonal breadth, with the midrange detail and note attack of the ash/maple tonewood pairing. The ST-Vintage single coil pickups feature staggered alnico magnets, deliver quintessential Strat sparkle and shimmer at each position on the five-way pickup selector switch. This Order Made Stratocaster weighs 7lbs 9oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

The gloss Butterscotch finish has ambered only fractionally from its factory shade, highlighting the particularly dynamic grain of the ash body. Cosmetic wear includes one finish chip of note on the back lower bout body edge, and some additional minor dings and finish scratches consistent with use on the body as a whole. The neck profile retains its smooth ambered gloss.

A padded gigbag is included.
