A 1970's Fender Strat reissue, Made in Japan (Fuji-Gen factory) between 1984/1987.This has not been used a lot, only occasional use for a few drop tunings, as it is a very versatile guitar.
It has all the original parts, except a Schaller 5-way switch, which is wired in a way that position 3, which uses both the bridge & neck pickups simultaneously.
In regards to the damage, there are only a few buckle scratches on the back of the Strat, aswell as a small dent towards the bottom of the body.
This Japanese era of Strats was regarded as higher quality and better playability of US Strats of that time.
Packing and postage will cost around £15, depending on where the guitar is being shipped to, but collection is also an option if possible.
Price - £380 ONO
Charvel ST Deluxe
Made in Japan in 1990/91 Serial No.357629
It has Staggered vintage tuners, Jumbo frets, Slim neck, Lock down saddles, Roller nut.
The electrics - Volume,Tone, 5 way switch and 3 way toggle switch. With the 5 & the 3 gives 15 tonal positions. The 5 way has been upgraded with a Schaller sw and wired so position 3 gives you bridge & neck pickups.
The Charvel pickups are stacked single coils which are a bit under powered, so I have upgraded the a bridge and neck pickups with Hot Rails (B) Cools Rails (N) from Brandonni of Wembley.
There are few scratch/dinks on the back of the body.
This guitar was reviewed in Guitarist June 1991 where in the conclusion reviewer wrote "For the price, it takes some beating, and the standard of workmanship is excellent - a quality shared by most Charvels".
It comes with the case, which is pictured. It has been gigged and does have some cosmetic wear, but is well serviceable.
Price - £270
