Creating Guitars and Experiences of a Lifetime.
Jim Cara's work is found in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Hard Rock Cafe's as well as on stage with a list of Rock Stars too many to mention. His replicas of iconic electric guitars are authorized by the famous living players that have owned the originals and are sold with the opportunity to meet the star in a one on one experience.

About
This actual 1962 Japan Stratocaster Sunburst Reissue was meticulously distressed with such an attention to detail accomplished with the use of magnification and tools as small as a sewing needle.
All Japan Parts were removed and sold. All parts were replaced with the exact Fender USA parts found on SRV #1

Finish

Original 62' Reissue body with Vintage SSS routing.


Body and Neck were carefully stripped and then kiln dried


Once dried they were finished to vintage Fender specs with Nitro Lacquer.


Original 62, Stratocaster Reissued Decal


Scrap Parts were put on the guitar while we completed the Relic process, as to keep the finish intact below the parts, as you would find in a true Vintage instrument.


Open wood was chemically aged, not stained, and the color of the wood impregnates past the surface, just as natural aging would.


Decals are exact matches to SRV's and placement is pinpoint correct, with trimming as found on the original #1


Rear of guitar shows major distress surrounding the tremolo cavity and wood burnt S.R. Vaughan

Neck

The fretboard has been leveled just as SRV's tech had done over the many years of work. The Radius is closer to a 9" than a 10"


The neck has been refretted with Dunlop Jumbo Frets and dressed 1x


Headstock shows heat damage below the low E tuning post.
