Fender 1985 Japanese Stratocaster Reviews
IT was 1985 and Sam Ash Music on Route 110 in Huntington Long Island was advertising a Fender Squire Stratocaster for $199.
My brother was friendly with the son of Sam Ash...who was working in this particular location. He called junior and told him that I would be dropping by to purchase a new Strat.
I arrived at the store and was greeted by Jr. He said he was anxiously awaiting my arrival and personally picked out the best "on-sale" Strat in the entire lot.
Trust me folks...the Japanese turned out an unbelievable guitar in 1985. It appears that they took a 1957 Fender Strat Neck...scanned it to detail and used robotics to cut out a perfect copy. The feel of this guitar is unbelievable...a work of art.
Over the years I've had the electronics overhauled...otherwise..it is a true classic.
If you find a Japanese Fender Strat from 1985...buy it.Elliot Shore rated this unit on 2003-05-29.
