Fender Stratocaster Japan 1962 RI Sonic Blue -now Surf Green w. USA Texas Pups
Very cool old Fender Japan 1962 Reissue Stratocaster (ST62-TX) in Sonic Blue from 2002-2004 (CIJ Q-Serial). This is a great looking Strat and being Japanese-built you can expect top quality fit and finish. It has an alder body with a beautiful dark slab rosewood fingerboard with a 7.25 radius, Fender stamped steel saddles, 3-ply white pickguard and great sounding factory USA Texas Special pickups. It has some nice maple grain on the front and back of the headstock and down the neck. The neck is dead straight, truss rod fine with plenty of life left in the frets. Weight 3.6kg. Structurally and electrically sound. No issues at all. No breaks or repairs. No modifications. It a great looking old Stratocaster slowly aging into a real vintage looker. All the plastics have turned off white and the maple neck and headstock have darkened over the decades. The Sonic Blue finish has yellowed over time giving is more a Surf Green look, it's a tough shade to capture in images, even under a window in natural light as these were taken. Look at the pics where it looks greener as these represent the the colour of their guitar the best. There are some bumps and dings around the edges which lend to the overall aged feel of the guitar. Some rubber wear around the bottom strap pin circumference. Complete with non-original tremolo arm & gig-bag. A beautifully built ’62 RI Stratocaster in the best Strat colour!
