This is a  pre owned JAPANESE  

FENDER  Made In Japan ST-357V

STRATOCASTER GUITAR in LOVELY ORIGINAL condition. 

BUILT IN 1987/88, IN JAPAN, in the FUGI-JEN GAKKI Plant.

Made In Japan and Serial number G022129 stamped on the front of the headstock. 

General thinking is that these "standard" Strats with the  ST-357V designation signified a Stratocaster loosely based around the 57 reissue Vintage Guitars but this is unsubstantiated by Fender .

THIS IS A NICE EXAMPLE IN BLACK with a White 50's, 8 hole single ply scratchplate ORIGINAL AS STANDARD. (These scratchplates were standard this one could be a new replacement one as its so clean on the front but it does have a build up on the back so it could very easily be the original!) Comes with the Original Whammy bar.

THIS STRAT IS IN LOVELY CONDITION and this guitar is 27 years old. These strats are a pretty rare find! ESPECIALLY  IN ORIGINAL UNFIDDLED WITH CONDITION.

These guitars were produced with 2 x black plastic bodied, string trees with chrome "rollers", Silver Fender Logo on a maple neck with 21 Fret maple neck stamped ST-357V. The Body neck cavity is unstamped with just a Red Pen Mark and contrary to some people's belief this is quite usual for aMIJ Fender of this period. They are very similar to the MIJ Squiers of the same period. 3 Ceramic Single coil pups wired to a Fender YM 50, 5 way switch via 250k Ohm 7/8" bodied Pots. Loaded into a single ply white 50's style Scratchplate. The original paint line around the egde of the heal of the neck mimicks the black mark on the neck pocket where it was originally fitted to the body( When the paint was not completely dry!) The Body has the original untampered with 8 holes for the scratchplate and the correct pickup routing and a trem without the Fender Stamped saddles.

With these guitars originality is King! A friend of mine bought one of these new from a Fender Dealer back in the day so we know that these original specs are correct.

These "MIJ" Strats are arguably some of the best Fender Strats ever built. They really are up there and beyond Mexicans   ....in fact, I know its open to opinion, but the sound and tone from these pups blows a Mexican fender out of the water and sets the guitar apart.  Some would say a better guitar all round. The necks are beautiful and you can feel and hear the quality. Attention to detail on these MIJ's is second to none...

ST-357V


  • A Maplewood fretboard with truss rod adjustment at the body end of the neck, no truss access above the nut, and the Iconic ‘skunk’ stripe on the back of the neck.
  • Three single coil ceramic pickups.
  • A Single-ply white scratchplate – held to the body with 8 screws.
  • A vintage tremolo/vibrato bridge held to the body with six crosshead, dome-top screws. 
  • A Silver Fender logo on the headstock.
  • Generous body contouring with plenty of arm and chest relief and relatively light weight.
  • Individual routings in the body for each pickup – i.e. not a universal ‘swimming pool’ routing.
  • Gotoh Stamped Sealed Tuners/Machine heads. 
  • A blank neckplate.
  • ‘Made in Japan’ and the serial number on the front of the headstock.
  • 2 Original black "roller" string trees lessen string stress and wear and aid tuning.

There is NO buckle rash on the back just very light polishing swirls on the body. There is really light checking in places on the back under the paint and lacquer but again, unless you know its there, so insignificant you don't really notice it unless you hold it up in the "right" light. This is just a little shrinkage in the paint or undercoat and is usual with a guitar of this age. It actually adds to the character and and vintage look and feel of the Strat.     

There are the first signs of very very minimal little string marks on the fretwires on some of the frets but really insignificant. There is no wear to the fretboard.. you would never think that this guitar is 27 years old! 

We try to describe as accurately as possible but .. be in NO doubt..  You will be hard pressed to find another used 27 year like this one

ANY WHITE MARKS ARE REFLECTIONS FORM OUR LIGHTS! 

A naturally aged example with all the attributes. This beautiful classic Black Fender Japanese Strat was made in the Fuji Gen factory. 

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a REALLY beautiful 27 year old guitar, with exceptional build quality, feel, playability and above all tone. A warm neck pup tone and a well rounded bridge pup. Not too"shrill" on the high notes but clean , crisp and articulate even with a bit of overdrive. Not "muddy" as some pups can be with OD.

LOADS OF VINTAGE MOJO.

However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
