2004 Fender Stratocaster ‘54 Vintage Reissue ST54-95LS Black w/ Lace Sensor, Japan CIJ Blackie


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2004 Fender Stratocaster ‘54 vintage reissue model ST54-95LS in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. This rare, upper-tiered “Crafted in Japan” Strat is virtually identical to the Eric Clapton “Blackie” Signature Stratocaster, sharing a number of premium features with that instrument including a trio of Lace Sensor Gold pickups, active MDX Mid-boost circuit and TBX Tone control, and a satin-finish 22-fret neck with a prominent V-shaped profile carve and a modern 9 1/2“ fretboard radius.

Tonewoods comprise an alder body and maple neck, and this Strat weighs 7lbs 12oz. The Lace Sensor pickups feature a unique radiant Field Barrier system that surrounds both the coil and magnets, reducing 60-cycle hum. The patented Lace Micro Combs replace traditional bobbins, giving the player a wider tonal range and better string-to-string balance than traditional pickups. An active Mid Boost control replaces the Strat's second Tone knob, enabling the humbucker-esque warmth and richness of Clapton’s iconic “woman tone,” and the center-detent TBX tone control dials in additional thickness and boost. This Strat has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
