1984 Lake Placid Blue Fender Stratocaster E Series MIJ 1962 ST-62 Made in Japan Strat – OHSC – MOJO
Lots of wear and tear, indents in the beautiful rosewood board, lots of color in the neck and body poly – a very cool guitar! It has all this wear from 38 years of hard playing because it’s an awesome playing and sounding guitar!
Fender moved factories and the last USA models were Bill Smith 1984s… the Squire and Fenders were all made in Japan in the transition. This is one of those guitars! This is a 1962 styled Stratocaster featuring:
- Vintage 7.25″ radius maple neck/rosewood fingerboard; no skunk stripe – adjusts at base of neck just like a 1962 this model is a reissue of
- Original Gotoh tuning machines
- Basswood body – do not let people tell you these were Alder body Strats – they are not, and it is plain as day when you listen to it, its much warmer with less high end than a USA alder body Strat. It definitely sounds amazing though!
- USA Fender Hard Shell Case
- Comes with Strap & Strap Locks, will include strap buttons as well
All original hardware, pots except:
- Came to shop with 2 dead pickups: Original ceramic pickups replaced with new Fender 57/62 set
- Original plastic 5 way didn’t work in all positions; replaced a USA Fender 5 way
- Plastic string trees have been replaced with metal USA style string trees
This is one of the coolest Strats we’ve played and it’s definitely heading toward collectible status! The E series ran 84-87 and we believe this to be an early model based on markings (and lack of) that point to it being closer to 84 than 87.
