Fender Vintage 80s Contemporary Stratocaster Kahler Spyder +OHSC MIJ Strat 99345


Regular price $1,199
Description
You're looking at a great Strat--an "E" Series (1984-87) Fender Contemporary Stratocaster model ST-562, made in Japan in Candy Apple Red finish. Comes with original Fender molded hard case. Features include a factory stock Kahler "Spyder" locking tremolo, known to be one of their most sought after early tremolos, and sells for $150 used by itself. It is a top-loading trem, and the Kahler model Contemporary is rare to find, as Fender more often used their own inferior "System 1" Kahler copy tremolo. When set up correctly, these Spyders are known to be rock solid.

Still has the original locking nut that says "Pat. Pend., Made in USA" and everything is functioning though it has the older style locking bolts with Allen wrench adjustment. They work if you're careful and use the correct Allen size, but the metal is getting old. Ultimately would be better to replace with the slot style still sold by Kahler if you wanna make your life easier.

Neck is 22 frets, 12" radius, C shape. with Gotoh branded original tuners. Beautiful dark rosewood fretboard. Frets are in very good condition with lots of life. Some minor playing marks on the body (see pics). See pics for two different trem bars I have available. Believe the one without the tip is just like the original. Weight is 7 pounds, 13 ounces.  I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!

Guitar Setup
All our setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
