This is a very nice guitar owned by Zul. He bought this guitar in a guitar store in Ochanomizu, Tokyo Japan. Its a Japan Fender Stratocaster 1972 Reissue and where better to buy it than Japan itself?
The colour itself is reminisence of Yngwie's favourite "the duck" strat although without any scalloped fretboard. The cool thing about this guitar is that it is installed with USA pickups and not Japanese made pickups. Here are the specs :-
Body : Basswood
Neck: Maple Oval Type
Pickups: Standard Vintage USA
Control: 1 Volume - 2 Tone - 5way switch
This is really a cool guitar.

I just came back from Tokyo Japan for some seminar and i managed to go to Ochanomizu to have a look for myself the guitar wonderland of Asia. A guitar friend of mine told me about this place. Ochanomizu is located near Akihabara (electrical goods wonderland of Asia) and just a station away. I stayed at Ikebukuro and took the Yamanote line to Akihabara and then changed to Sobu line to go to Ochanomizu station.
Once out of the station you can find lots and lots of guitar shops big and small. You will be spoilt for choices. There are very wide range of guitars, amplifiers, effects and others that you just simply want to try all of them.
So anyone going to Tokyo Japan must go to Ochanomizu for guitar shopping!!
