(SOLD) Fender Japan '62 Stratocaster ST62 Vintage White 2014
Fender '62 Strat, vintage white, made in Japan 2014. It's fair to say this looks good, right? This creamy white finish and rosewood board combo is one we get asked for a lot, so it's cool to score one. This has a lovely slim neck: it's a vintage style C shape with a lovely streaky slab of rosewood and a tightly grained piece of maple, so it feels superbly easy and looks classy. It's a nice lightweight example too, which is a handy little bonus. The tone is crisp and full: heaps of attack and clarity in the top end, paired with a lovely natural roundness through the low end that lends it just the right amount of fatness. This is a really easy guitar to get along with in every way, it'll surely make someone very happy indeed.
