USA Fender American Vintage 62 Deluxe Player Stratocaster FSR Ice Metallic Blue Matching headstock
This is 2005 and really quite rare. Only made for 1 year 2005. Only 350 made. The guitar plays fabulous and is in full nitro factory Ice Metallic Blue. It has modern appointments of S-1switching, 22 frets, 9.5 Radius and truss rod at the head stock.
The guitar is all original and comes with G and G case, bridge cover, trem arm, keys to case , hand tags etc…..
The plastic cream guard has faded to lovely golden cream but the other plastic parts have faded to cream. Please see the contrast of under the knob and trem cover which has been kept off the guitar in the case. The scratch plate does have the fade marks of the original on the shield sticker and the arrow pointing to the S-1 switching where they were left on for years….
Before I had the guitar… it used to be hung to wall with some form of rubber hair type band in between the machine heads. The rubber has reacted with nitro and caused it blemish in between a couple of the machine heads. It has discouled the paint and worn the top coat. Its level, shiny and smooth to the touch and can only be seen in certain lights…. Has to be seen really… but this does not affect the playability of the guitar.
I have a email from Fender saying what the guitar is.
The same guitar is at Guitar village and Rverb used for top money.
