Fender '62 Strat in rebel yellow, made in Japan in 1986. Well... that's a loud finish! Such a beast could only hail from the eighties; this one dates to 13 August, 1986. E-serial MIJ Strats are becoming less common and more sought after; they're really only a year or two younger than the landmark JV-serial instruments, and as a rule, they play just as well. This one is perfect in the hands: sturdy, balanced, lively, quick and perfectly comfortable. The slim maple neck features some really stunning grain; that's a hallmark of this era: amazing wood selection. This guy dolls out the classic Strat-spank: thick, juicy, bright and full with heaps of attack and cut. Do you know anyone else with a Strat this yellow? Be the first!

Model: Fender Stratocaster, '62 Reissue (ST62-55)
Made: Japan, neck date 13 Aug 1986 (serial E681975)
Finish: rebel yellow (RYL), 3-ply white guard
Body: basswood 
Neck: maple with rosewood board, dot inlays
Mods: none
Neck, middle and bridge pickup: Fender Japan ST Vintage single coils
Case: highly awesome brown faux-leather gig bag

Cosmetic condition notes: minor finish wear. There's a couple of minor dings, one above the middle pickup and a pair behind the bridge. There's a few minor dings on the back too, and the backplate is missing. There's some standard aging on the chrome and plastics, it's got a nice smoky look. Overall: very good condition (8/10).

Playing condition notes: Neck is straight, action is low, intonation is good, truss rod works. All electronics tested and working properly. Frets have been a little wear, heaps of life left in them, 7/10. Sweet stuff.
