Fender C.I.J Vintage Series '62 Reissue Stratocaster. "Lake Placid Blue" - Sold



 C.I.J or Crafted in Japan, Guitars from this Series are Fender Japan's equivalent of the American Vintage series. It is difficult to tell the difference with these guitars, apart from the most obvious difference, the price! They are both based on a 1962 Strat and of course the specs are very similar. To my mind these are a better instrument than the American Series Guitars, based on the fact that this guitar has the Vintage "Kluson" Style Tuners and the Vintage Series Bridge and trem. As well as that, these guitars are fitted with the highly regarded "Texas Special" Pickups, which are sold as an upgrade to those who might prefer the tone of early 60's pickups. This one is finished in Lake Placid Blue, one of the most sought after Custom Colours from the early 60's...Like it says, Vintage Series!
