Fender Japan '62 Reissue Stratocaster ST62-58US Candy Apple Red 1999-02
Fender '62 Reissue Strat, candy apple red, crafted in Japan 1999-02. Candy apple really looks good on a Strat, it's one of those 'oh yeah' finishes, especially with a few miles on the clock. This has a nice depth to the colour from age; it pops nicely against the mint guard and cream plastics. The '62 neck profile is always an instant-win: slim, round, comfortable, classic... it's your new best friend in seconds. This doles out the classic Strat spank with gleeful abandon: thick juicy attack, sparkly treble; bright and snappy with plenty of body. This ticks all the boxes, it'll surely fill that Strat-shaped hole in your collection brilliantly. Plus, red goes faster, right?

The front is cleaner; just a few marks on the top horn and behind the bridge and some mild play scratches. Overall: very good condition (8/10).
