This beautiful Japanese Strat has been a bit of a mystery to solve but having spoken to the previous owner of 20years and his recollections of the guy he bought it from and other research, I've pieced together most of its history. What I know, is that since at least 1994, the guitar has been as it is today. The neck is a 1992/3 ST-54 one piece Maple, with the sought after soft V profile and 7.25 radius, with its original vintage tuners. The body is a 1992/3, Alder ST-62 complete with its original 3ply green nitrate pickguard and back plate and original steel block vintage trem, electronics and the American made ST vintage pickups. There is a possibility the guitar came from the factory in this format as stranger things have been known and there is evidence this could be the case.Alternatively this was a period mod made in the first year or so of its original ownership. Fact is the guitar is a beauty and actually you could view it as a period correct, best of both worlds, instrument. I have additional pics of the electronics and neck pocket if anyone requires them and the weight is 7.5lb. All the electronics are in perfect working order and the frets and fretboard show only very minor signs of wear. There are generalised small soft dints, rubs and light scratches over the guitar, with the addition of an area of belt marks and scratches on the back. Although fairly numerous, none of these are serious and the lacquer is intact throughout. There are no serious chunks, chips or gouges. The level of genuine patina looks absolutely right for the age of the guitar and certainly doesn't detract from its lovely overall appearance. Complete with a very tidy Hiscox hardcase, this is an absolute beauty!
