1987 USA made Fender American Standard Stratocaster guitar with EE Serial number
USA made Fender American Standard Stratocaster guitar with EE Serial number from 1987 or 1988. Super fast, sought after, vintage Fender Stratocaster OHC Fender Stratocasters with the EExxxxxx serial numbers seem to throw a few people off because the EE numbers are not easy to date. People talk about Custom Shop parts being used and the guitars being assembled by the team that then became the craftsmen / assemblers in the Fender Custom Shop. Whoever assembled this one knew what they were doing. It was made in the USA Corona plant in 1987 / 88. The EE numbered guitars were apparently made for export to Europe and Japan. Some were quickly spotted in the USA. If you do the internet research, all you will see is praise for the way that these strats play. This one is no exception. It comes with the original Fender hard flight case and the Factory final test stamp hang tag. Playability. It has a lovely neck. The RW fingerboard is in excellent shape. The frets are good and the action is excellent as you would expect. The body has plenty of weight. It’s not as heavy as the strats that I’ve had that were made in the late 1970’s but it’s not a lightweight either. It’s comfortable and sounds great. Overall. I’m offering the guitar at less than it ought to be as I’m reducing the size of my collection. It’s a great player and you won’t be disappointed. The guitar is in such good condition that it’s hard to believe it’s now 30+ years old. Alterations: The scratchplate and back cover have been changed but everything else has been retained. The nut has been changed. Two of the neck plate screws have been changed. Headstock. Original and without issues. Original Fender tuners and string trees in very good condition. The back and front of the headstock are both in superb condition. Neck. It is straight and nice to play. The back of the neck is fantastic. They usually have a few dings but this one is super-smooth and has the skunk stripe. A very nice Rosewood fret board and plenty of life in the frets. The body: This USA made Fender American Standard Stratocaster is in very good condition, with just one tiny ding on the edge of the left side waist and another tiny one on the edge of left horn. The chrome is missing inside the jack input cavity. Case: Supplied in the original Fender flight case. Shipping: I will ship almost anywhere at whatever it costs me.
