Hey guys, it’s been a while since I posted on the board. I need a little advice from people with more MIJ Fender knowledge than me. This forum has always seemed to be very pro-MIJ so I thought I’d ask here first.

I found a guitar store with a 1994 mij foto-flame ST-62 strat with the best neck I’ve ever played (even despite worn frets). Feels like it was made specifically for my hand. What’s the value like on these? They have it listed at $899 Canadian (~$720 US) and it’ll need a fret level or refret at some point, and probably either paint or replace the body because the black foto-flame is hideous. That’s how hooked I am on the neck, I can overlook the terrible body paint.


It’s really the neck I’m after. Are the necks pretty consistent on these? Should I wait for one that isn’t foto-flame? Is the price good/bad/pretty on point?


thanks guys, I don’t know much about MIJ!

Based on current MIJ prices in the UK it’s a good price I reckon.

Find something similar on reverb or just standard ST62 prices for comparison.

Yeah seems like a decent price. I know what you mean about the MIJ strat necks, they are just great.

One of my all time favorite necks was a Vista Series Jagmaster.

My MIJ Strat neck is pretty great, really narrow at the nut (40mm). That price seems good
