The Fender Pawn Shop Offset Special starts off life as a marriage between a Strat and a 69 thinline Telecaster, but that's just the start! Then Fender threw some P90s at it and because it didn't look quite off the wall enough a Jag tremolo to boot! The result is a mad barking dog of a guitar with grit by the bucketload, cascading overtones of rich harmonics and did we mention it looks ace!? From surf to rock to punk and back the Offset Special is going to hit some powerful notes!
Here's What Fender Say about the Pawn Shop Mustang Special
Pawn Shop Series guitars are inspired by the more eccentric Fender creations of the mid-’60s to mid-’70s, which sometimes found their way to the outside world and into the more esoteric pages of Fender history. Crafted for thoroughly modern sound and quality, they present a creative alchemy of diverse Fender elements. New for 2012, the Pawn Shop Series introduces an unconventional new assortment of “guitars that never were but should have been.” The Pawn Shop Offset Special guitar is one of Fender’s most offbeat designs ever. Features include a semi-hollow double cutaway body with an f hole and sleek offset waist, a phenomenal-sounding pair of large JZHB humbucking pickups with three-way toggle switching and an Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with vintage-style floating tremolo tailpiece. This is a guitar from the past and the future.
