Winner: David Paynter
Draw date: 16/09/21
Batten down the hatches there's an arctic storm coming! This vintage beauty is an absolute stunner. In the past Fender has been known for doing a few "odd" things when it comes to serial numbers. This is a 'Made in the USA' for export markets series Fender Stratocaster. These guitars were made in '89-'90 for export to overseas markets. You don't see too many of these floating around...
Here's what Fender have to say:
“A limited number of these “I” series guitars were made in 1989 and 1990. They were made for the export market and have “Made in USA” stamped on the neck heel.”
The export series is all over the board, some having a butt truss rod, some having a nut truss rod. Some having a pin stripe, some not. But all of them have the same Made in USA stamp on the butt, as well as the same set of pickups and MIJ style tuners.
This guitar was purchased second-hand and the serial number dates it to 89-90. The guitar is in fantastic condition!
