MIDNIGHT BLUES was created on this date 3/8/2014 as a quick sit down demo for an eBay sales. the famous Fender Stratocaster MIJ mid 80's E Series collectable Blackie is an all original mid 80's Fender MIJ Strat with all original parts never opened. Clean and full with Gotoh Japan pickups and potentiometers including green poly .22uf compositor. The beautiful Fender with hardly used all Maple Fender number ST 357 Fuji Gen Gakki code number for a 3 Single coil Stratocaster a 1962 RI. How ever the body on this Stratocaster is a ST362 indication of a 1962 RI. The Rosewood neck that was supposed to be on this guitar was amazingly switched as a blessing in disguise as this 57RI neck is in beautiful condition with hardly any play frets being medium instead of the 6t2 thin fret and still rounded in near mint condition. very little wear. As you watch the video pay close attention to the neck and the frets. The Gotoh over wound pickups sound great and the set up was like the 60's Strats. I played when I wore a young mans clothes. The identity of the famous musician is with held for purposes and sat down and just started jamming to a Alesis Drum machine SR16 Blues 1 beat with no rehearsal. Mistakes and blues licks and all , this guitar was on fire tonight, I decided on the name of Midnight Blues as I know this Blackie is going to sell and it is one of the finer Stratocasters I've had an experience of jamming on. With brand new and collector 60's and 50's Anniversary editions with D3 pickups and all kinds from Noiseless to SCN to Chrome domes none of them can hold a candle to this Jap pups, take a listen to the feedback through the only one year made 1994 Twin Amp with two Special Design Jensens made in Italy this amp has my vote. Rock on..
