Fender Strat '57 reissue in shell pink, crafted in Japan 97-00. You really don't see many guitars in this finish, it's certainly eye catching! It's really got a sweet 50s aesthetic; it's yellowed nicely in 20ish years to a orangey-salmon-pink that's very tasty. This has aged very gracefully too, there's barely a mark on it! The maple neck is moderate in profile, it's instantly likeable. The maple board looks great and also sharpens up the attack and definition; this packs a whole lot of perfect Strat-spank. This is a super sweet Strat with a whole lot to love.

Cosmetic condition notes: negligible finish wear. There's a barely-there scratch behind the bridge, and possibly a couple more dimples around the body. The chrome and guard are in great shape, only minor play-wear. It could pass for under 12 months old, despite being 20ish years old. Overall: excellent condition (9/10).
Playing condition notes: Action is low, neck is straight, intonation is good, truss rod works. All electrics tested and working properly. Frets have just a nudge of wear, they're in great shape, 9/10. Great Strat.
