Here we have up for sale, a lovely 1989 Black ‘left handed’ MIJ Fender Stratocaster. This lovely Japanese black beauty has an arrow straight neck & hence has an incredibly low/fast action. She plays like a dream & offers vibrant, traditional Strat tones. Fitted with her original, good quality Gotoh machine heads, the tuning stability is really solid. Her frets are in very good order & she is in super all-round condition, with just a couple of very minor body dings as shown in the photos, after all, she is circa 30 years old! As far as we can see she is all original, with the exception of a volume pot, a new 5 way Oak Grigsby Style selector switch (Old switch included) & some general re-wiring. She comes with a great quality padded Eggle gig bag.

Fender Japan was founded in 1982 during a major transitional phase for Fender. To compete with inexpensive Japanese copies of Fender guitars and basses, Fender commissioned the FugiGen Gakki factory to produce a line of more affordable guitars in Japan, and so began the MIJ (“Made In Japan”) era of Fender. From the very first reissues of the Jazzmaster and Jaguar to new oddball designs, exclusive finishes and variations on staple models, MIJ Fenders kept the company above water while they waited for their new US factory to start production.
