Scarce Fender Grunge-Era 1972 RI Stratocaster Factory Scalloped Olympic White
Here is a very early 1990’s Fender Japan (MIJ J-Serial, 1989-90) FujiGen built & factory scalloped 1972 Reissue Stratocaster, very similar to the Yngwie Malmsteen's Strat, although it is a different model with some different specs. Please note, this is Fender FujiGen factory scalloped, not DIY. Model number ST72-86 DSC. It's got an alder body with a great looking maple fingerboard and the yellowed Oly White is spot on with the correct white 3-ply scratchplate. Comfortable oval profile neck. The pickups are USA Dimarzios with a Jackson J-100 in the middle, the nut is bone (not brass) with 5-way switching. Tremolo unit has been replaced with a Gotoh GE102T and the tone has been cut (capacitor removed). Neck is dead straight, truss rod fine and plenty of life in the frets. Very clean for the age with some light playwear as you’d expect and the only notable thing being a chunk out of the 22nd fret, which can be repaired if that where you do all your playing (!) But in reality it's just cosmetic; one of those distinctive quirks that will always let you recognise your guitar. Neck is straight, truss rod checked and working and plenty of life in the frets. Guitar 100% original. Weight 3.7kg. It's an astoundingly well put together Strat as you'd expect from a FujiGen-era Fender. Complete with gig-bag and replacement tremolo arm. A rare one.
