2006 Fender Stratocaster 62 ReIssue – CIJ

Here’s a beautiful 2006 crafted in Japan Fender Stratocaster 62 Reissue I picked up some time ago. I was so surprised by the quality of this guitar when I first saw it, this axe plays and sounds so good, and the quality would easily be comparable to a U.S.A model.

There’s a heap of pics in this post, but first lets hear how she sounds, this first video is Darren playing through a Marshall JCM-800…

Now let’s hear how she sounds through a Peavey Delta Blues.

This next video was taken when I caught up with Bert about two months back, he’s playing through one of my Fender Twin’s, this is the one which has been modified with the Blackface mod. There’s a couple of love pedals in the mix, sorry I can’t remember which ones he used in the video.

These next few video’s is the guitar played through the same amp that Darren was playing through in the first video at the top of the post, the Peavey Delta Blues, but this time Bert is playing.

These videos were shot using the Fostex AR4i stereo recording interface for iPhone.

Ok, so let’s take a good close look at her….

She sure is a beautiful 62 Re-issue with the 3 Tone Sunburst finish, a 3ply vintage mint green pickguard and very dark rosewood fretboard.

The body is Alder and looks to be 3 piece, finished in a light coat of poly. I must admit, the poly finishes on these Japan Fenders is much nicer than the ultra thick poly coating usually found on the Mexican Fenders.

Because I bought this guitar as a used instrument it does have a couple of very small marks on it here and there from play and such, but overall this guitar has been well taken care of.

With only minor scratches and a couple of small dents in the body, she’s in very good condition. The light poly coating also lets the small natural indents of the wood grain show through in the finish.

The neck pickup has been replaced with a Fender Noiseless, I tried getting a shot of the “Noisless” pickup cover but it just didn’t come out how I was hoping, you can just barely make out the text on the cover..

The neck is straight and has the typical vintage 7.25 radius and the vintage sized fret-wire. With hardly any ware, the frets and fretboard are perfectly fine.

The condition of the neck is almost impeccable, the only blemish I could find is a slight chip on the bottom edge in direct line with the B string tuner.

The neck pocket is perfect, no cracks, chips or any blemishes at all. I would not be surprised if the neck has never been removed. I for one won’t be taking it off.
