Fender Classic 60's Stratocaster in Old Fiesta Red

Japanese Made Special Run Guitar

Description

Fender Japan have gone and made another guitar that you just wouldn't find in their USA or Mexican made lineup. Using a 60's style design with vintage style pickups this guitar has the tone and look of a classic strat but material choices give this guitar a more modern feel that you will love.

Japanese Build Quality

The almost unthought about member of the Fender factories, Fender Japan release some amazing guitars that some even say are just as good as their American counterparts. Made in small numbers purely for sale in Japan these guitars are rarely seen outside of their home country except in these small FSR runs.

Modern Feel

One of the big changes you will note with this guitar is that it is a lot lighter than other strats. This is because they have used basswood for the body rather than Alder or Ash. Not only is this wood a lot lighter but it adds more in to the midrange of your tone letting you cut through the mix in larger and heavier bands.

Classic Tone

Even with that midrange boost from the Basswood the output and general tone are still very vintage. By using a set of what Fender Japan call Vintage Style Pickups you get that smooth low end and rolled off highs that pickups in the 60's were known for having.
