Fender '62 Reissue Stratocaster Shell Pink ST62 2007-10
Fender '62 Reissue Strat, made in Japan 2007-10, shell pink. This is one of those finishes that seldom comes up and always turns heads. It's got a really sweet smooth 60s aesthetic; shell pink certainly deserves it's place among the classic Strat custom colours like surf green and sonic blue. The slim 62-profile neck is perfect in the hands, it's a breeze to move around on. The stock pickups deliver clear, precise notes with a heap of spank and body; it certainly delivers the charismatic Strat-tone. The condition is superb; the lacquer has aged a little to a lovely peachy hue, which pops perfectly against the rosewood board. What a girl!
