Summary: The Fender Contemporary models were the first Fender Japan models to be exported as Fender Stratocasters and Telecasters. The Fender Contemporary models were manufactured from 1984 to 1987 by FujiGen Gakki and these Stratocasters were designed to be SuperStrats with humbucking pickups and Floyd Rose like tremolos made by Schaller and Kahler. This Contemporary Stratocaster was built in 1985 and it has a beautiful Burgundy Mist finish and a System III tremolo system.

Body: Solid, double cutaway, gloss Burgundy Mist finish.

Neck: Maple with a Rosewood fingerboard, 25.5” scale length, 1.650” nut width, 22 frets, white dot inlays.

Pickups/Hardware: Two Fender humbuckers, System III locking tremolo system (original tremolo arm not included), Fender tuning keys, master volume/master tone controls/3-way pickup selector/mini toggle, black single ply pickguard, input jack on the side of the body.

Cosmetics: This guitar is in excellent condition. The pickguard has regular wear. The input jack has a rubber washer that goes around it, and it has started to roll a bit. There are a few very small scuffs on the back edge of the body. The back of the neck is clean and smooth, and the frets have a slight bit of wear.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this instrument with a new set of strings. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.

Weight: 8.595 lbs.

Case: This guitar ships in a Fender hard-shell case, professionally packaged, and fully insured.
