Fender Japanstratocaster ST57-85 Vintage Reissue
This is a Fender Japan JV ST57 (1957) Stratocaster vintage reissue. Just in case you are unfamiliar with Fender Japan( made in Japan MIJor crafted in Japan CIJ ), these guitarsare known for the superb craftsmanship and quality. In fact, many guitar players, even professionals prefer these guitars over some US made counterparts. Since these Japanese made Fenders are not allowed in US (new), in recent years, these guitars are becoming harder to find. The JV serial Fenders are considered among the best, regardless of the origin.
Condition:This is a Fender Japan Stratocaster ST57-85 Vintage reissue.This guitar was made in 1983. The neck date is 2-4-'83. It has the correct large Fender logo with the MADE IN JAPAN notation on the head.There is a B stamp on the neck pocket meaning the body has the lacquer finish and usually the material used for the neck is better. The serial number is JV32744. The color is candy apple red. The mild V-shapeneck with the minimum fret wear. The neck is very straight.
The pick guard assembly is the correct US made with the cloth wire vintage style pickups, US made pots and 3 way switch(DM30). Needless to say, the best part of this guitar is its sound. One of the best sounding Starts we have had - and we must add that the most of the JV Starts feel like and sound like the original 62 Strat.
The guitarsounds as good as a RI guitar can get; it sounds like an old vintage Start. Playing this guitar next to a new Strat, the difference is very clear. During this era (early 1980's) these US made pickups are also considered the best among the post CBS pickups and I am sure that has something to do with the sound comes out from this guitar.
This guitar is not in a mint showroom condition. If you are looking for a perfect mint guitar without a scratch for a showroom or magazine, etc., this guitar is not it. Although it is in a great condition for its age, there are some minor scratches and dents - please carefully study the photographs.
