Fender Stratocaster Left Handed Made In Japan Blonde, 1987

Fender Stratocaster Left Handed Made In Japan Blonde, 1987

It’s unusual to see a Fender Stratocaster in Left Handed form, from the start of the ‘New’ Fender era when much of Fender’s production was Made in Japan. Here, we have a Fender Stratocaster Left Handed built during 1987 at the FujiGen Gakki plant in Nagano, in Blonde finish with Rosewood fingerboard. The original pickups have been replaced with Seymour Duncan models, and the original pick guard with a faux-tortoise unit. This really works well with the Rosewood fingerboard.

Fender Telecaster Maple Neck Blonde, 1968

Fender Telecaster Maple Neck Blonde, 1968

The Fender Telecaster Maple Neck Blonde was an incredible innovation when it was introduced as the Broadcaster in 1950, rapidly shifting to its current name after a trademark dispute with Gretsch. Naturally, not all players appreciated the solidbody electric concept, but its overwhelming advantages quickly put Fender on the top of the market.

Fender Troy Van Leeuwen Jazzmaster Oxblood 2014

Based largely on 1965 specifications, the Fender Troy Van Leeuwen Jazzmaster combines a classic offset Alder body with a Maple neck and Rosewood fingerboard sporting binding and block inlays. The gloss polyester finish is an interesting metallic Oxblood tone, and that’s applied to the front of the headstock as well.

Fender Sting Precision Bass Sunburst, 2004

Fender Sting Precision Bass Sunburst, 2004

The Fender Sting Precision Bass is based on the 1953 bass used by Gordon Sumner – Sting – on his recording and performances with The Police and solo work. It was built between 2001 and 2013 at the Fuji Gen plant in Matsumoto, Japan for Fender Japan. Introduced in 1951, the Fender Precision bass is a landmark instrument, and influenced the way that music is performed and presented. Easily and consistently providing a precise pitch – hence the ‘Precision’ name – was a new concept for bassists, who all used upright, acoustic fretless instruments.
