1982 FULLERTON 1962 RI OLD SCHOOL FENDER STRAT AUSTIN TX PRO Owned
7.4lbs of Bell Tone! Simple you want a Great Strat? One with Providence of coming from a Pro Player,,BLUES PLAYED in all the Clubs in Austin, and USA? Look at Pictures, Look at Video. Listen. I played it straight into a Lucky 13, 50 Watt Half Stack. Just me and the cord. NO Effects. Yes you need OLD Wood for OLD Tone! Always did, Always Will!
34+ years old. Made in same plant as the PRE CBS Leo Fender Bell Tone Statocaster's WE LOVE.SAME MACHINES AND TOOLING AS THE PRE CBS STRAT"S WERE MADE! Look at it, LOOK close.
Look at the Glow (Yelloe) from the black light pictures. In the last 2 photo's I have here. In the middle of the picts is this 1982, 1962 USA Fullerton Reissue. On the right is a 2016, 52RI USA Custom Shop just made 1 month ago, on the left is a 100% 1966 Strat. Fullerton Fender Guitar's are the last of the Old School Nitro. In the New Fender plant, yes Fender use Nitro, but the environmentally safe (sorry) crap Nitro. Tone Comes from Quality Wood and Old Nitro that lets the WOOD Tone Out!!!!!!.. Yes All Strat;s are better in Old Fender Plant.. In MY B@@K!
Even the Screws (nickel) Saddles you name it. LOOKS Old School. Why? Because it is Old School!
This Strat is all original but a 1975, 5 way switch,and a USA reissue Green Pickguard ( All 62 RI Fullerton have white pick guards. This Green makes it look like real deal PRE CBS!) added, back term cover holes enlarged to put string threw. It is set up with a straight neck, bridge solid...Stays in Tune PERFECT, Low Action. Sustain City, and yes bell TONE.
Neck is a Thin C Shape Profile. The Neck is Fast, but yes on thin side. I LOVE All Neck, Really, I just Love GREAT TONE!
