Video below is straight into a 1965 Fender Super Reverb 40 watt 4x10" Tube amp... Just me & the cord..:)
1986 62RI USA Fender Candy Apple Red Stratocaster CLEAN Excellent Shape!
The Fender Corona, Ca plant opened its doors in the very last months of 1985. Production started off very slow at the new factory with very few of guitars being produced per day during the initial months.
These early Corona era reissue are very
High Quality Instruments!!!
like their older Fullerton era cousins have fantastic build quality. When the new factory opened there was still an excess of parts left over from the Fullerton, Ca factory that were used in production.
My name on this Strat.. that YOU WILL LOVE!
9.4 shape out of 10... in My book
Clean City, still has plastic on back them cover
Plays easy, string bends easy.. you swear the fretboard is Brazilian Rosewood.. Slaboard.. It's so Dark and Looks Killer
Whole Strat finished in Nitro
Neck date is 11-23-86. Fender was still putting pencil date at heel of neck, like PRE CBS Leo did
Pots are 8635. That is 35th week 1986
29+ years old.. Go back 30 years from know.. Where was you? Can't remember CAN YOU??? I can't..:)
Pickups are Black Bobbin, Alnico Magnet, Staggered Poled, South Polarity magnets... As Fender was then, even the correct color and wire is used like in 1962
USA Made.. Back when people had a HAND in making, now days.. your Fender is a Computer mostly building it..
Bridge pick reads 5.87k
Neck is a Full C Shape profile.. A Average size neck. Not skinny, not a baseball bat.. 97% of PRE CBS Fender had this size neck as this right here
1st fret measures 20.59mm...
12th fret measures 22.81mm
I can go on and on how Fender wood was just better back almost 30 years ago. The world was even better. There was more resources, people cared MORE back then. Most people worked harder, had pride. I think it shows and in this case sounds like "Old School"....
PS: I do think new cars are better off with computers building them, as now days they don't break down or rot away... But that's about it!
