Offered for sale:

Used c1988 Fender Stratocaster made in Japan model 25-4302 which is notable for the Kahler 2720 Spyder tremolo system. The serial number is E837355.

This guitar is in good condition, neck and frets are fine, cosmetically there are marks and nicks and playing wear with a noticeable chip on the lower bout back corner edge.

Fender Standard Stratocasters made in Japan Export models differed from Japanese reissues for the clear ‘70s style logo on small headstock and flat pole pieces. The first model made between 1985-1987 was equipped with the Fender System 1 bridge, the second model/version only made in 1987 featured the Kahler 2520, the third model/version made between 1988-1989 used the Kahler 2720 Spyder assembly. Interesting note: these third models almost always did not feature the “Made in Japan” decal.

This is a really well-made instrument that plays and sound great!

Fender gig bag included.

*Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.

This is a specific item that is also being offered for sale in our brick & mortar location. It is possible that it has just been sold. Please ask if it is still available before purchasing.

*It is our policy to require a signature on delivery of all musical instruments. Please let us know if you prefer no signature required when ordering or we will automatically require a signature.

If you prefer your item to be sent without a required signature Imperial Guitar and the selected carrier can no longer be responsible for the security of the package once it has been delivered.
