Fender Japan '57 Reissue Strat, super smooth sonic blue, made in Japan 2010-11. This really does look ace; sonic blue is such a perfect finish on a Strat. It's more common on the '62 style rosewood-board models, so sonic blue and maple board is a pretty rare (and killer) combo. The classic 'twang' is there; the spank and cut is nicely balanced with heaps of body and creamy mids. The neck is a moderate C-profile, it;s instantly familiar and super smooth in the hands. The condition is superb, this could basically pass for new at first glance. This is a real stunner, and she won't let you down!
