No sales tax for customers outside California.

This 1985 Fender ST-62 Stratocaster is a beauty in candy apple red!  A rare issue in this year.

The guitar has been very well cared for.  The frets show little wear, as is the case for the entire guitar.  The quality in this build is evident from the first time you lay hands on it.

Check our the dark rosewood slab board!  

Everything is original, but it does appear that two solder joints have been disturbed, perhaps to take the pickguard assembly off for some reason.  No other solders are touched.

The guitar is repair and issue free.  The strap in the case is likely original to the guitar.  These blue-lined cases have popped up here a couple times lately.  It just might be the original as well.
