1992 Fender Order Made Stratocaster Walnut w/ Gold Hardware, Japan MIJ Fujigen

$2,099.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1992 Fender "Order Made" Stratocaster in excellent condition and in perfect working order. This rare “Made in Japan” Strat was produced at the Fujigen factory during the golden age of Fender Japan production; the Order Made program was a sort of custom shop, offering non-catalog finish and component options. Produced exclusively for the Japanese domestic market and uncommon outside its country of origin, this particular Strat features a gloss Walnut finish on an ash body, accented by gold hardware.

A maple neck and slab rosewood fretboard round out the tonewood complement, and this guitar has a bold, detailed acoustic response with a certain midrange heft and complexity inherent to ash as a tonewood. Via the trio of alnico magnet single coils, there are vital, quintessential Strat tonalities at each position on the five-way pickup selector switch, ranging from gutsy twang at the bridge to bell-like fullness and sweet clarity at the neck, to hollow quack at the “in-between” positions. Weighing 8lbs 3oz, this Strat has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

The gloss Walnut custom color finish highlights the dynamic grain in the ash body, and cosmetic wear includes a handful of minor nicks on the body as a whole, largely concentrated along the perimeter and on the bass side of the top, with one more prominent ding adjacent to the jack cup and a touched-up finish chip on the bass-side lower bout perimeter. The neck profile retains its smooth matching gloss, with a handful of shallow marks that don't distract the palm while fretting.

A modern Fender gigbag is included.
