Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley MIJ, 1987

Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley MIJ, 1987

Here’s something special! Not a reissue but an original, the Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley was built in Japan from 1985 to 1987 while Fender had no guitar production in the USA. The Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley model was unique to this era though during 1968, Fender built a Paisley Telecaster. The finish uses a foil layer on top of the body wood and covered with a polyester sunburst layer. This Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley model dates to 1987 and was built for Fender Japan by Fuji-Gen at Matsumoto, Nagano. It’s in good clean condition though it has definitely been played, as evidenced by the fingerboard wear.

❌SOLD❌ Rickenbacker 4003SPC Tuxedo White Star Bass, 1987

❌SOLD❌  Rickenbacker 4003SPC Tuxedo White Star Bass, 1987

Here is a limited edition rarity from 1987 – a Rickenbacker 4003 Tuxedo White Star bass, one of approximately 120 built during that year; some reports say 100 were built. The model 4003 bass was introduced in 1979 to improve the model 4001 and in particular to strengthen the dual truss rods for use with round wound strings. The Rickenbacker 4003 Tuxedo or White Star bass is based closely on the 4003 and was built only during 1987.

PRS Standard Solidbody Tobacco Sunburst, 1987

PRS Standard Solidbody Tobacco Sunburst, 1987

The PRS Standard appeared in 1987 as an evolutionary step and as a model rename from the 1985 PRS model, with carved top, all Mahogany construction except for the 1o inch radius, 25 inch scale Rosewood fingerboard. Until 1991, Brazilian Rosewood was used for fingerboards on this model. Here we’re looking at a PRS Standard, built during 1987 in Stevensville, Maryland and sporting a dark tobacco sunburst model, which transitions to a darker red on the back and neck.

❌SOLD❌William Laskin Flamenco Blanca Guitar, 1987

❌SOLD❌William Laskin Flamenco Blanca Guitar, 1987

Here we’re looking at a William Laskin Flamenco Blanca guitar, dating to 1987 and built at his Toronto workshop and recently set up by The Twelfth Fret Repair Shop. It is built in the traditional Spanish manner with a ‘slipper heel’. In this design, the neck is essentially one piece (aside from any scarf joint for the peghead) and the carved heel and neck block are separated by slots that the sides fit into. This construction method is quite different from the use of a dovetail or mortise and tenon joint, or any of the newer hybrid joints that may include a single bolt.
