I forgot to mention I am in the UK near Peterborough and you're welcome to come and view/try the guitars. I can also send you some pictures.

Hi Oli

Do either of your Jap strats have a maple fingerboard?

I haven't got anything for a so swap would you consider selling?

You can email me at louise_brooks@blueyonder.co.uk if you don't want to post prices on the forum.

Cheers

Daz, the 50's reissue should have a maple one piece neck, there were no strats with rosewood fingerboards in the 50's.

Correct...the 50's has the traditional maple V neck and 50's headstock. The blue strat has a more modern maple thin C shape and satin finish as the US series but still has a vintage style trem which I prefer to the 2 point style.

Sorry guys, forgot about 1959! Was it really possible to get a rosewood fingerboard in '58?:

"Mid 1959 Statocaster specs (http://www.provide.net/~cfh/):
* Slab Rosewood fingerboard with white "clay" position dots and 7.25" finger board radius. Bottom of fingerboard (part glued to maple) is flat. This change was implemented for the summer 1959 NAMM show. Basically Strats 7/59 and later will have rosewood fingerboards."

Hi Ned,

It's nothing to rave about. Just a Korean love rock with a lovely cherry burst flame style top (the pictures do not do it justice). The condition is immaculate and I have to say I'm quite impressed with this lil' guitar. While the woods are quite common, the finish and the neck are superb. We're million miles away from the 90's epiphones. A bizarre thing is that it has no serial number and the guy bought it three month ago.

Two things are below par:

1 - the nut (sucks big time).

2 - the pickups lack definition which can be irritating on a lester but the overall sound is good and right in the LP ballpark.

To sum it up it's a utterly playable guitar that you can upgrade for little $. I look forward to A/B it against a jap, but I think I'll keep it as a backup.

As regards pickup I felt the same about my Korean 335 but now she's got a set of Seymour Duncan Seth Lovers and rocks.

No serial number indicates its a pre-2003 model. Could have been new old stock.
