Whilst you don't often see guitars made of Pine these days, believe it or not, Fender's original prototype instruments were fashioned from this distinctive wood. Now in 2017, Fender have released a limited edition FSR Stratocaster in a natural Pine finish; showcasing the grain and natural knotholes of the wood that make each guitar unique.

Unique Natural Pine Body

I must say, after growing up in the pine furniture craze of the 90's, the idea of a pine anything would have usually filled me with fear! Yet, each one of these pine guitars has its own individual beauty. Each guitar is created using exotic 100 year old pine that's been reclaimed, cooked and sculpted into the iconic Stratocaster body. Cooking the pine gives a gorgeous rich dark brown colour and the satin finish feels great as well as protecting the wood underneath.

Classic 50's Tone

The FSR Exotic Pine strat is not just about looks though. This guitar has authentic vintage-inspired Fender tone and is loaded with three American Vintage '59 single coil strat pickups that offer the clear articulate tone we know and love. This is combined with a balanced 9.5" radius maple neck that's comfortable for chords but also flat enough for wide bends. So it's versatile enough to handle the needs of most musical styles 
 
With its classic, original-era sound and style, the 2017 Limited Edition American Vintage'59 Pine Stratocaster is an inspiring tribute to Fender's first instruments.
