2009 Fender Stratocaster ‘62 Vintage Reissue ST62-US Sunburst w/ USA Pickups, Near-Mint, Japan MIJ

$1,199.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2009 Fender Stratocaster ‘62 vintage reissue model ST62-US in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with a softshell case. Produced exclusively for the Japanese domestic market and uncommon outside of its country of origin, this “Made in Japan” Stratocaster features factory-installed American Vintage 57/62 single coils.

Designed to pay homage to the golden era Pre-CBS Stratocaster, this Fender has a balanced, clear natural acoustic quality with a basswood body, maple neck and a slab rosewood fretboard. The 57/62 single coils are the same pickups used in Fender's American Vintage line, featuring black fiber bobbins, cloth-covered leads, and staggered alnico pole pieces. Via the five-way pickup selector switch, the bridge pickup has plenty of bounce and sparkle, the neck pickup is bold and round with a throaty cut, and the "in-between" positions on the five-way pickup selector switch deliver quintessential quack. This Strat weighs 7lbs 12oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action and accurate intonation.
