Fender MIJ Traditional ‘50s Stratocaster in Black

It’s no exaggeration to say that Fender’s MIJ models are consistently among the very finest guitars we have in stock. Even today, with increased availability in the West, supply is more patchy than with models produced in, say, North America. Combined, these factors produce a range of guitars for which our staff have a particular soft spot. Though not officially a Limited Edition model, this ‘50s Strat is coming to Europe in highly limited numbers, making ownership an experience few will enjoy.

This guitar’s foundation is an American Basswood body, imbuing it with a lightness and musicality which suits the Strat perfectly. To this is bolted a “U”-Shape Maple neck, topped with a 9.5”-radius Maple fretboard for intuitive playability. The three Vintage-Style Single-Coil Strat pickups provide period-correct tones, controlled via a 5-way selector switch.

A 6-Saddle Vintage-Style Synchronized Tremolo has been fitted, allowing the full array of classic Strat whammy bar techniques, while the looks are straight out of the period too: the gloss Black finish has been painstakingly applied, matching perfectly with the single-ply Eggshell pickguard.

The Fender MIJ Traditional 50s Stratocaster in Black is your ticket back to the Strat’s first years in production, executed with all the precision of Japan’s finest luthiers.
