c.1985 Fender Japan Pink Paisley Stratocaster Electric Guitar

This is a customer's instrument that was in for a fret level/dress, cleaning, and setup. It had been used for slide for a long time and it was nice to have it brought back to "normal" play. This is a reissue-style pink paisley Strat that was made in Japan in the mid-80s (the serial specifies a range from 1984-1987) and was this customer's first "real" guitar.

I love me them bullet truss rods and double string trees! The finish on this guy is actually "naturally" aged to a yellow. In the neck pocket slot the finish is still crisp and clear-natural on the neck.

The owner has of course removed the troublesome whammy cover.

Skunk-stripe maple neck and micro-tilt 3-bolt neckplate.
