The guitars you see above: Fender ST57 (maple fretboard)/ ST 62 (rosewood fretboard). These are fine guitars, well-made Japanese instruments. I've tried them in the shops before & they are definitely great players. I've been trawling buy/sell ads (as always) & kept reading the fact that people propel these models as 'reissues' based (loosely) on the fact that there are '57' & '62' in there.
Recently, the manufacturer added the above ST57FR & ST62FR models in their catalogues. So if you are selling them off, would you propel them as 'reissues' as well? I've been talking to people & reminding them of the fact that these Japanese models are no 're-issues' in any way & they are not worth more than what the current market assessments dictate. Thanks to the FR models, we can now understand the fact that Fender made a close reference to what the '57 & '62 Strats were all about & manifest them in essence but definitely not in the strict 'reissue' understanding.
