Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 2007 Fender Stratocaster ‘62 vintage reissue model ST62-SPL Stevie Ray Vaughan “Charley” Limited Edition in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. This exceedingly rare, non-catalog “Crafted in Japan” Stratocaster was produced in very limited quantities and is one of only three official “Charley” replica releases ever (Charley’s Guitar Shop/Rene Martinez made a handful, as did the Fender Custom Shop). The original “Charley” Strat was made for SRV by his close friend/guitar tech Charley Wirz, owner of the aforementioned Dallas-based shop, based on a design he had produced for Jimmy Vaughan. This unique Strat faithfully captures the finer points of the original Charley, featuring a trio of Seymour Duncan SLS-1 Lipstick pickups, hardtail bridge, simplified controls, and a gloss Olympic White finish with matching headstock.

Tonewoods comprise an alder body, maple neck, and slab rosewood fretboard. The Seymour Duncan SLS-1 single coil pickups are a Strat-sized iteration of a Danelectro "Lipstick" pickup, capturing the round, full-sounding cleans of that unique '50s pickup design. They're jangling when clean, with a dynamic grit and creaminess when overdriven. The middle pickup is reverse-wound, reverse-polarity, ensuring hum-free operation at the spanky “in-between” positions on the five-way pickup selector. Weighing 7lbs 8oz, this “Charley” Strat has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

Cosmetic wear on the gloss Olympic White finish is limited to faint buckle rash central to the back and a few minor marks from careful use on the body as a whole, largely relegated to the back and body perimeter. The smooth gloss on the neck profile is immaculate.
