2013 Fender FSR Stratocaster ‘71 Vintage Reissue ST71-ASH Walnut, Near-Mint, Japan MIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2013 Fender Stratocaster ‘71 FSR vintage reissue model ST71-ASH in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. This “Made in Japan” Strat was produced exclusively for the Japanese domestic market, uncommon outside of its country of origin, as a FSR (Factory Special Run) limited edition featuring a custom color gloss Walnut finish with matching headstock, and an ash body loaded with a trio of USA-made Fender Custom Shop Texas Special single coil pickups.

A maple neck and slab rosewood fretboard round out the tonewood complement, and this Strat has an immediate, percussive acoustic response with midrange cut inherent to ash as a tonewood. The Texas Special pickups are faithful to vintage spec, with black fiber bobbins, cloth-covered leads and Alnico V magnets, delivering an array of classic Stratocaster tonalities, slightly overwound for additional output and midrange. The bridge pickup has a snappy, aggressive snap, the neck pickup is smooth and broad, and the “in-between” positions on the five-way pickup selector switch offer quintessential hollow Strat quack. Weighing 7lbs 6oz, this Strat has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.
