Great tone comes in all shapes and sizes! While this pint-size Fender classic might seem like a kid's guitar at first, don't be fooled—this Made-In-Japan Mini Stratocaster will make a useful addition to any collection.
Tuned A to A, it gives you the range of a guitar capo-ed at the 5th fret. For songwriter, this could be incredible useful (since G shapes yield the key of C, and C shapes give you F, etc.). Because of size of the body, it also gives you unique access into the upper register. When you play at the 7th fret on the "Micro Strat," you're at the E 12th fret octave position on a regular-sized guitar. Plus, the MST-32 has 21 frets, which is the equivalent of 26 frets on a regular-sized guitar. That's a ton of access! The Mini Stratocaster would be an incredible tool in the studio for solos up the neck.
Then, there's the obvious... Everybody needs a stage gimmick, right? Look no further.
This 1990 Fender MIJ MST-32 Mini Stratocaster is in excellent condition all around. It shows some bumps and bruises from the last 30 years (see photos), but it has no history of repairs or issues. It is set up properly, and it plays well all over the fingerboard. With two strat pickups on tap, it produces familiar Fender tone, but it provides options and positions that don't exist on a traditional Stratocaster. Gig bag included.
