Hi guys, new here and really needing some help, My name's Mike, i'm from Ireland and I'm a massive Fender fan.
I have a Squier Strat, Gilmour custom shop Fender strat, Fender DeVille 410amp and my new addition...
Picked it up today in a pawn shop for next to nothing..
A "Made in Japan" Fender (not squier) Stratocaster!
It's got a rosewood neck and a 3 tone sunburst on the body. 3 single coils, vintage tremolo, vintage (gotoh style) tuning heads, 3 ply pick guard and has "Original Contour Body" on the ball of the headstock (Identical to my Gilmour) and "Fender stratocaster with synchronized tremolo" in the usual place.
The "made in Japan" is at the base of the neck followed by the serial number "E959331"
The neck plate however simply says "FENDER" no serial number...
Can anyone give me any info on it? All I know is it was made between 84 and 87 and it plays like a dream, as nice as my custom shop, other than that i'm clueless..
Hope some of you knowledgeable types can help me out!!
