Fender does cool stuff. This Factory Special Run from the Fender Factory in Japan is cool stuff. Part of the Traditional line but not all that traditional when you think about it! This limited edition Midnight Stratocaster with matching headstock has a Basswood body that makes it super light weight at only 7 lbs 9 oz. The All Black "Midnight" dress is beyond cool. The black finish, black pick guard, matching black headstock, and dark Rosewood fingerboard combine for an edgy look.
The maple neck is shaped to a U profile with 21 Vintage Style frets and sports a 7.25" radius. 1.650" Nut Width presents a thin feeling neck that is easy of small/medium hands.
A trio of Vintage Style Single coil Stratocaster pickups are tied to classic Stratocaster controls including a master volume, two tone controls and a 5 way switch. All the classic Strat tones are just the flick of a switch away.
Throw in Gold Hardware onto this debonair Strat and we have got one classy affair! The Japanese made Fender Guitars have been a Cult Favorite status for many years but the secret is out.. they make GREAT guitars!
The attention to important details like body contours and neck shapes truly helped many of us understand how these things morphed over the decades. Grab one of these limited edition models while you can as the Factory Special Run guitars from Fender always disappear before most people have even come across them!
