Fender Japan '62 Reissue Stratocaster ST62-70TX Vintage White 1997-00
Fender '62 Reissue Stratocaster, vintage white, crafted in Japan 1997-00. There's not many more visually appealing guitars than a vintage white Strat with a rosewood board; it's a classic that's on a lot of player's bucket lists. This one backs up it's gorgeous curves with a while stack of tone and mojo. The '62 neck profile is supremely easy to get along with: slim, round, fast and intuitive. The alder body and Texas Special pickups crank out a crispy clear Strat-spank with that balances instant attack and juicy body nicely; it really does sound seriously good. This is one of those guitars that'll perform brilliantly on stage, but the real magic is when you get it home; you'll be simply playing away and suddenly realise that several hours have passed... it's really got the magic. A creamy delight.
