Here's my brood...
My E.... along side my ProTone Squier ... pals ...
I love mine. Got it for cheap and it plays great but the selector switch is not working any ideas for a new one.
I wish i knew why, but theyre mid 80s Contemporaries, and no neck dates.
Sounds like the switch is either dirty or you may have a wiring issue, worse comes to worse you just replace. either a 3 or 5 position switch.
I have what appears to be a Fender Japan Yngwie Malmsteen Style '57 Reissue Stratocaster w/Scalloped Neck. Has some makings in the neck pocket that call out "Order Made" I was told these guitars were custom ordered with Yngwie Malmsteen Signature specs but without his signature on the headstock. Seems like A rare find from the 80's. The front and rear pickups are DIMARZIO HS-3 just like on all Malmsteen signatures.
I am looking to verify what this is.
I am also trying to decide how to best care for this guitar. It seems to be unplayed. It has a patina on the finish that has changed the color on areas and along the edges. The Harware has aged a bit. Seems like I could buff all of this out and shine up the hardware. but I am not sure I should do that. Any thoughts? Suggestions?
Custom Orders are always a nice find pics are too small to make out much detail. I'm thinking it is late 80's early 90's but I can't makle out the wording on the back of the neck...
It is an E8 serial number with 6 digits. Does that mean 1988?
Hope these are better pictures of the patina I am talking about. It looks like it would come off if I buff it. I just am not sure if that is a bad idea on a 25 plus year old untouched guitar. Its like someone hung it on a wall in a room and left it for 25 years.
My experience is that it's the clear coat that has gone yellow and it id difficult (impossible?) to get it out evenly ie you will still end up with some areas that are 'brighter' than others...
Ive got two 85's one white one sunburst, both had system ones that I replaced with standard 6 screw trems.
I always assumed that my MIJ 62 reissue was a 1990, because I bought it new in 1990.
But obviously I am way off with the manufacture date as it E plus 6 digits.
So it must have been sitting around new and unsold for 4 years ??
Forgot to say that when it was resprayed in the green I never saw if anything was pencilled or dated in the neck as the guitar was not taken apart by me, the guy doing the respray disassembled and reassembled it for me.
