1990's Fender Japan '57 Reissue Stratocaster (Refinished Sparkle Red)
Japanese made in the 1990's and restored by us in 2023, this was a collaborative effort by our team and is one of those guitars that we love to see restored from beginning to end!
Sourced by us in very gross condition with a poor refinish attempt on the body and some sanding to the neck, had it fully disassembled and rebuilt from the ground up. We had it refinished in a sparkle "Fiesta Red" with a metallic flake that pops in the sunlight and had the neck sanded back to a satin smooth finish that feels uniform in the hand.
Basswood body with a maple neck (7.25" radius, vintage C profile), it weighs 3.5kg's. Appears to be all original inside with Japanese pots and the original Fender Japan alnico single coils.
Professionally set-up prior to listing with a fret polish, truss adjustment and electronics flush, it plays and sounds great with a straight neck and fully functional truss. We've assessed this as a 1990's Fujigen build based on the neck stamps and specs, however the serial on the neck heel was destroyed by the previous owner when they sanded the neck and there's no other codes for us to accurately date it. We can guarantee it to be a fully authentic Fender Japan '57 reissue though as we've had hundreds of them come through to compare.
