(Sold)Fender Japan ST71-85 3TS
2017.1.7: I was hoping to get a large head Strat with a decently usable maple fretboard someday.
As a Lark lover, I thought the Love Driver sunburst would be a safe choice for everyday use, but it's popular and produced in small numbers, so it doesn't come on the market very often.
Then I was thinking of putting a gold anodized PG on a similar strat, and I found one on the market that has already been done so, lol.
I bid a little bit, but I managed to win the auction because it was a large head and had all the required specs.
I was excited when I found out later that it was almost the same age as mine, but when I received it, I found it was stained with tar...
I checked the catalog of the production period, but there was no lineup of sunburst on the large head, so maybe it was a color ordered by a music store?
There is only one tension pin unlike the original '71 model.
The model number was stamped on the neck pocket.
2017.2.19: Cleaning and assembly work completed.
The bridge potato screws are rusted and other parts show quite a bit of age deterioration.
2017.12.12:In the end, I gave it away because I never got a chance to use it and also because I got a higher model than this.
2020.12.27: I bought it back from an acquaintance who gave it to me.
It was used only for playing at home, so I think it is almost the same condition as it was at that time, maybe a little rusted.
2021.1.9: I replaced all the electrical parts except the PU and selector, knobs, PU cover, and screws.
The pots, capacitors, smooth taper Vol capacitors, and resistors for the two tone pots and the smooth taper Vol are CTS 250kΩ No-Load pots for the tones that were originally on the Crews Tyler Modoki.
When I got it, all the screws around the PG had been changed to a different standard, so I changed them back to the standard I originally used so it looks better.
2021.3.12: I had the fret fret adjustment, nut replacement, and pickguard screw holes filled and re-drilled at the workshop.
The pickguard was slightly warped because some of the screw holes were out of alignment, but this has also been improved.
2022.10:I sold it because I don't think I will play it since I have 3S Fenjapa and CS in recent years.
The sound is still not accustomed to the difference in sound pressure caused by the uneven pole piece.
