Here at The Guitar Store Southampton we love the Fender Special Runs that come over from Japan - always something different and unique.
The Fender Strat has forever been adored by guitar players and admirers over the world. This Special Run model by Fender's expert luthiers in Japan has all the style and panache of an original 60s Strat with some modern, updated appointments. Plus, as this is a Fender Special Run, there is only a limited number available in the UK!
As with most Fender Stratocasters, the FSR Classic 60s Spec has a body built from alder. This is a solid tonewood but has a comfortable feel, further enhanced by the traditionally slender double cutaway body shape. Alder is capable of providing a wide range of tones across all the frequencies. For that authentic 60s feel, the body has a Vintage White finish.
A 25.5 inch scale length maple neck is joined firmly to the alder body via a traditional 4-bolt neck joint. With a slim "C" neck profile, playing feels totally sturdy and effortless. To enhance playability even more, the double cutaway body means that even the higher registers of the neck are within easy reach.
The neck is topped with a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, offering 21 vintage style frets. The frets are adorned with easy-to-follow white dot inlays to guide you along.
Fender Japan have opted for three Custom 60s Single-Coil Strat pickups placed in the neck, middle and bridge positions. With these three pickups you have a world of tone at your fingertips, whether you're going for soul, jazz and funk or fat, bluesy rock, just an extensive array of 60s sounds.
You can shape your sound to suit your playing needs quite simply by adjusting the Master Volume and two tone controls, while the 5-way switch allows you to alter between the five different pickup combinations.
Fender Japan have fitted a durable 6-saddle vintage-style synchronised tremolo bridge to the lower bout of the body. At the opposite end of the guitar there is the quintessential Strat-style headstock fitted with the incredibly dependable Gotoh tuners for complete tuning accuracy.
The Vintage White finish of the body is complemented by aged white plastic control knobs and a protective 3-ply white pickguard, all contributing to this Special Run's stunning appearance.
