1978 Fernandes FST-50CH Stratocaster MIJ Japan (Vintage White)
1978 Fernandes FST-50
This Fernandes FST is from the late 1970's and features an aged white finish, 21 fret maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard, sen (ash) body and weighs 3.4kg's. These were a really cool 70's CBS style Fender tribute with the bullet truss rod, neck angle adjustor, three-bolt neck plate and the large headstock.
Good condition for 40 years old with only basic signs of use, hardware is all still working and looking great and there's virtually no major damage/blemishes. Neck plays nicely and is straight, frets have plenty of life. All original!
With the poor quality coming out of the Fender factory in the 1970's, buying a Japanese guitar from this period can be a much better choice. The Japanese factories were producing high quality instruments throughout the 1970's, whereas the cost-cutting measures that CBS had implemented on Fender had a huge impact on the quality and consistency of their instruments. If you're after a vintage Fender-style guitar from the 1970's then you'll save money and gain quality in buying a Japanese guitar like this!
