This is an early ’62 Fender Stratocaster Reissue in sunburst built at the original Fullerton factory, before the move to Corona in early 1985.
This '62 R/I Strat has the desirable features that collectors want, but also the goods to deliver the tone and playability that players want. It has a set of great sounding black bobbin pickups and earlier cloth wiring. You can also see that the rear pickup cavity has the hand-worked shape of the earlier guitars.
This guitar features all the desired '62 Fender specs and appointments and it has been played in nicely, with over four decades of added character.
This is a nice early example of the best of Fender workmanship from an era when the brand had got its engineering credibility back by assigning its best craftsmen to these early vintage reissues. This year pre-dates the establishment of the Fender Custom Shop by five years and it was these elite craftsmen that went on to be the first Master Builders at Fender.
This one is in fabulous condition. Very simply, it is hard to believe this instrument is into its 42nd year. There are a few light marks here and there, but very hard to see. The neck is set up with a fast low action and is completely unmarked, and the frets have plenty of life left. Tuners are solid & there is no tarnishing of the metal parts.
This 62 R/I Strat is super clean for its age, and it is in completely unmolested original condition. Nothing has been changed or updated because nothing needed to be. No modifications, no repairs & no issues. Just a great sounding pre–Custom Shop reissue of a Fender classic in excellent shape.
Comes in its original Fender hard case in good condition, ashtray bridge cover and original Fender swing tags.
