FENDER STRATOCASTER "62 Vintage Reissue"- FULLERTON, 1983
Lake Placid Blue custom color
Another great Fullerton-era Stratocaster, in perfect and all-original conditions, in one of the rarest and most sought-after custom finishes: Lake Placid Blue. This 62-style reissue has a very nice rosewood board over a lightly figured maple-neck.
Neck date is Jan 27th 1983 and pots are dated 26th week of '82. So it comes from the early months of the second year of production and has all the most desirable features.
The guitar is exceptionally light, thanks to a very deep and accurately shaped contour, one of the features that have made these instruments gain the "legend" status among collectors and players alike. We'll let the pictures speak: each and every detail is shown in the 62 dedicated photos: the black-bottom pickups, the body routings, the electric circuitry and parts, the three-spoke knobs, the bridge with "Fender"-stamped saddles, the Kluson-style tuners.
The Lake Placid
Blue finish is in exceptionally fine conditions, unfaded, the only flaw being a
tiny nick on the top, less than one millimeter wide.
This super clean Fullerton Strat comes with its original tweed hardshell case, a little worn on the top, complete with its key. The guitar still has all its covers, vibrato arm and even the original Fullerton, California instruction manual.
