Fender Japan '62 Stratocaster ST62 Sunburst 2010
Fender '62 Strat, sunburst, made in Japan 2010-11. This is a great little Strat, it just feels good. These '62 style Strats are blessed with a skinny, round C shape neck and, in this case, a glorious streaky rosewood board. It's an easy player, super fun to move around on and resonant and lively in the hands. The tone is classic-Strat: spanky and bright, balanced by an understated but complex midrange and a warm, controlled bass. The burst finish has a few little marks around the edges, but that just serves to mark this as a player, not a case-queen. If you're after a tasty little Strat, this one will surely tickle you nicely. Giggle giggle.
