Fender '62 Reissue Strat, aged sonic blue, made in Japan 2007-10. Gosh, what a babe! This could easily be mistaken for 'surf green', but it's too mellow for that; looking in the neck pocket reveals the original sonic blue peaking through. Being a faded finish, it's very slightly different in hue in some areas; that's part of the fun of this sort of finish. It's pretty hard to think of a better looking guitar! The slim 62-profile neck is perfectly smooth in the hands; it's easy to move around on and really feels great. This packs that perfect Strat spank, it's got a really nicely balanced tone with heaps of attack and chime. This is the whole package; it all ties together perfectly in the hands. And hot damn... that finish!
