❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster Pink Paisley MIJ, 1987

❌SOLD❌ 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❌ Fender Player Telecaster HH Tide Pool Blue

The Fender Player Telecaster HH is a meat and potatoes workhorse solid body electric guitar built to thrive at any gig! It features an alder body with a very comfortable back body contour. The maple neck has the modern C neck shape which is a good common ground for most players. The satin urethane finish on the back of the neck feels very smooth and your hand doesn’t stick as you move up and down the fretboard. The tonal core of the Fender Player Telecaster HH is the two Player Series Humbuckers.

❌SOLD❌ Fender 52 Telecaster Reissue Butterscotch, 2000

The Fender 52 Telecaster Reissue appeared in 1982, as one of the first wave of vintage reissue models based on ever-closer readings of original designs. These reissues began a few years before the 1985 sale of the Fender brand – but not the plant and fixtures – by CBS to a management group. Fender introduced the Telecaster, originally the single pickup Esquire, to the market in its 1950 catalog.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Squier JV 1957 Stratocaster Black, 1982

Here we haVe a Fender Squier JV 1957 Stratocaster reissue, built during 1982 for Fender Japan by Fuji-Gen Gakki. By the end of the 1970’s Fender, under CBS management, was struggling. Import copies were getting better all the time, which was made very clear to Fender executives touring Japanese factories with a view to doing some production there. At this time, Fender also hired three executives from Yamaha.
