£995.00Price

Up for sale here is a very rare late 1990’s Fender Japan (not Mexican) non-catalogue factory Capri Orange '57 Reissue Stratocaster. It’s a CIJ O-Serial from 1997-2000. We don’t find many Fender Japan ‘57’s in Capri Orange, it’s a great looking guitar. Body is alder with a nice thick maple neck. 7.25 radius fingerboard which is darkened and is nicely worn in. This was a high spec strat with factory installed U.S. Texas Special pickups and Fender stamped saddles. Nice off white plastics and dulled metal hardware give it a real vintage feel. Neck is dead straight, truss rod fine & plenty of life left in the frets. Structurally and electrically sound. No issues at all. No mods, repairs or breaks. Still has plastic backplate. Weight is 3.5kg. It’s obviously pre-loved so has a little playwear, some bumps and scuffing and cool looking wear on the fingerboard. One or twi little nicks in the paint which have darkened and aged nicely and a larger one at the top from sleeve rub. All good natural looking aging. Complete with tremolo arm & padded gig bag. A very cool Strat! NOT FOR TRADE or part exchange, thanks. We ship to the E.U, Europe, U.S, Canada, Australia, NZ and of course the UK.
