Fender Japan Left Handed '72 Stratocaster ST72/LH Vintage White 2010
Fender Lefty '72 Strat, vintage white, made in Japan 2010-11. It's a lefty white Strat, are you thinking of Lord Jimi yet? This is a simple, great sounding Strat with plenty of good looks to boot. The neck is a slim, classic 70s style U shape, so it sits nicely in the hands without being crazy skinny or too chunky and just feels good. The tone on deck is spanky, sparkly and defined with a nice understated but assertive midrange and a punchy, thick low end. The big headstock sports nothing but a simple CBS-era black and gold Fender logo, which adds a certain brash charm to the clean and classy aesthetic. If you're a longsuffering lefty after your 'one Strat to rule them all', this will surely rise to the task. Now, excuse me while I kiss this guy.
