Fender Japan '62 Stratocaster ST62-66DMC Vintage White 2006
Fender '62 Strat, vintage white, crafted in Japan 2006-8. Creamy and dreamy... this little charmer is a crowd pleaser for sure. The Dimarzio Collection was a limited time team-up from Fender Japan and Diamrzio, so this is a classic '62 Strat, but blessed with a tasty set of pickups. The pickups deliver a tone not too far from a Texas Special single coil, but with a bit of extra clarity, a fuller midrange and a lower noise floor. The tone is very satisfying; it's a balanced, articulate and creamy take on the classic Strat spank. This one appears not to have seen much action; it's in superb shape with barely a mark anywhere. The moderately slim, round neck profile is easy to get along with; it features some tasty maple and dark choc rosewood too. There's a lot to like here; plus, it's a cream Strat... can't go wrong, right?
