    This appears to be the same model. It was part of Fender Japan's Custom Edition series, which based on old brochures first became available in 1993.

    The way the finish is cracking it appears to be a fotoflame veneer on both sides. Once they start to go, they never stop.

    Though I’ve looked pretty hard at all the pics and I can’t find a Hamburglar anywhere... so I could be wrong. It’s definitely the right time frame for a foto flame, though. And that’s how they crack up.

    The MIJ 62 Deluxe Foto Flame Strats didn't have a Foto Flame neck, just the body.

    Scratches on the pickguard indicate that a previous owner/player of this guitar played with a lot of upstrokes...
