Fender's Japanese guitars are not only a collectors item, but a seriously impressive option for players not looking to spend thousands of pounds to get the guitar of their dreams. With a luxurious feeling neck and impressively rugged build quality, this Stratocaster is a guitar built to last a life time - and has the accolade of being produced in the world renowned Japanese factory.
As soon as you pick up the guitar, you'll appreciate the "U" shaped profile of the neck with low action that feels incredibly gentle under the hands and encourages speedy playing, plus makes light work of string bending. The gold hardware of the bridge and the machine heads give a great aesthetic and provide a striking contrast to the black outer edge of the 3-tone sunburst finish of the body.
Featuring a full set of Vintage Style Single-Coil Strat pick-ups, the Fender MIJ Traditional '60s twangs with the recognizable twang that has has made the Strat the most widely used electric guitar of all time. With a 5-way switch, it's remarkably versatile and provides tones ranging from wirey lead tone to fatter sounds perfect for all applications. It uses the standard set up of 2 x Tone knobs to really fine-tune the sound and a master volume - giving the player everything they need to produce world class Fender tone.
Top top it all off, we absolutely love the finishing touches on this guitar, such as the black pick guard that looks great on the brown body and the way the gold hardware, including input on the front, and white plastic knobs and switch tip really contrast with each other and provide an interesting yet classy overall appearance.
