1986 Fender MIJ Contemporary Strat in Ohio for $225

These Japanese Contemporary Strats are pretty darn nice if you don't mind the Floyd Rose Tremolo - I had one for several years and I used it to play out quite a bit - it never let me down. The Single coils and Humbucker are actually not super high output so they still have a nice vintage clean tone - and the necks on these are nice and smooth - similar to the 62 RI necks they use alot in Japan. They only have two knobs - one volume and one tone - so be sure to keep that in mind if you are considering replacing the pickguard.

This awesome 1986 MIJ Strat is built for speed and sound. Its called a Contemporary Stratocaster from the Contemporary series 1983-1986. Black w/ black headstock, Floyd Rose type tremolo, locking nut, Humbucker/Single/Single setup. Do your research...Strats made in Japan in the mid '80's exceeded the quality of americans. You will not find a better deal. I am giving up guitar. I suck.

Location: Pickerington


  1. I'm assuming this guitar was gone in 09, huh? I have one just like this, and would love another.

  2. I have one. If interested, email peterdbaker@gmail.com
