2022 Fender Japan Limited International Color Series Stratocaster Capri Orange, Mint w/ Tags

$1,599.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2022 Fender Japan Limited International Color Series Stratocaster, like-new and complete with the original gigbag and hangtags. With a gloss Capri Orange FSR (Factory Special Run) finish, this Strat replicates the features and unique custom colors of the International Series, first offered from 1979-81. This brand new iteration was made exclusively for the Japanese domestic market, rarely seen outside its country of origin and imported directly from Tokyo.

The trio of "Vintage-Style" alnico magnet single coils have plenty of chime and sparkle, governed by a five-way pickup selector switch. The bridge pickup has great cut, while the in-between settings on the switch have quintessential Strat quack, and the neck pickup is bell-like and round. Lightweight at 7lbs 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 original gigbag and hangtags are included.
