Fender Made In Japan Hybrid Stratocaster with Maple Neck in Satin Indigo

Satin Finish & Vintage-voiced pickups

Written by

Sam Beattie

Fender’s Made In Japan range offers something a little different. As the name suggests, these unique models are manufactured in Fender’s Japanese factories, combining classic Fender designs with spec tweaks and new looks. The Hybrid Strat in Indigo is no exception, with vintage-voiced pickups and a satin finish that’ll leave a lasting impression.

Body & Neck

The body is made of Alder for that balanced Strat tone with a pronounced upper midrange. This ensures clarity, perfectly complemented by the vintage pickups – more bite than bark. The gloss Indigo polyester finish is both reserved and eye-catching, with a pearlescent pickguard adding some subtle bling.

On the neck side of things, it’s another Strat staple: satin Maple. Combined with a U-shape neck profile, this particular Strat provides smooth playability with that familiar, chunky vintage feel.

Hardware & Electronics

Notable hardware appointments include a 2-point tremolo, renowned for tuning stability, and vintage-style locking tuners. The pickups are USA Fender Vintage single-coils – the aim of the game here is striking a balance between modern and old-school.

While the satin finish and 2-point trem offer clean-cut contemporary precision. The pickups, on the other hand, give you medium-output bite that makes the most of the Alder/Maple combo. Expect brilliant twang, pop and spank tones a la SRV.
