In 1985 the MIJ domestic Stratocasters were divided into Vintage (Fender ST and 1986 Squier SST-30), reissues of the Stratocasters of 1954, 1957, 1962, 1972, Current, Collectors, that included limited edition versions and the Players, guitars inspired by famous musicians (including Jimi Hendrix and Ritchie Blackmore), and Boxer Series, an evolution of the Contemporary. In fact, simultaneously with the production of the Contemporary exports, the Contemporary series was renamed, for the domestic market, Boxer Series, which, unlike the previous Contemporary domestic, was Fender branded, as the exports. The bridge of these guitars could be the classic Vintage Style, the Blade Shooter (identical to the Fender System I), the Fender System II or III or the Kahler Fulcrum Tremolo.
In 1986 some special models joined the Collectors Series, as the 12 strings STXII or the Paisley, and the EXtrad, premium versions of vintage Stratocasters, with the body in alder or ash ('54, '57 and '62), realized by the Japanese Custom Shop that made also some Custom Editions.
The Pro Feel Series, introduced in 1989, included guitars suitable for those who loved the most aggressive sounds. They mounted Lace Sensor pickups, Hotrod (single coil), Dragster or Di Marzio (humbucker), and had a round neck heel and a headstock with the Fender Transition Logo. They could have different types of bridge, from the 2-pivots of the American Standard Series to the Ex-Trem (Floyd Rose licensed), but also the End Rox or the Kahler and, later, the Floyd Rose, and could be normal, medium or short scale. The first HM Strats appeared in this series for the domestic market.
Also worth mentioning are the 1984 Zinger Series, the 1992 Squier Silver Series (also made as export for Great Britain) and, more recently, the Classic and Exclusive Series.
