The Fender 2018 Limited Edition Strat-Tele Hybrid Guitar in 2-Colour Sunburst combines the finest features of two classic models into a single awesome guitar. The Strat' and Tele' are models that have both helped to shape the musical landscape for decades, utilised by musical legends to pioneer new musical styles, and still keep players coming back for more.
Two classics in one
The body of the Strat-Tele Hybrid body shape marries both models features together harmoniously. The solidbody feel of the Tele' is joined by elegantly crafted contours the establish a feeling of stability and comfort. The body has been built using ash, a tonewood that boasts a naturally warm midrange timbre, which produces smooth tones that are perfect for any and every musical style. The 2-colour sunburst finish is protected by a slender yet resilient coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer to allow the paintwork to age gracefully over time.
Lightning fast neck
Fitted to the body is a supportive maple neck, which is shaped to Fender's American Professional "deep" C profile for supreme playability. The neck has been treated to a satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish, which prevents unwanted stickiness from slowing your hand for a sleek and fast feel. Paired with the neck is a glorious maple fingerboard, which is home to 22 narrow tall frets that are perfect for laying down sweet licks and seamless string bends. The generous 25.5-inch scale length affords a stable feel, whilst black dot position inlays guide your way.
Whether you're tackling country, rock 'n' roll, blues, funk, or anything in-between, the Strat-Tele Hybrid is equipped with Custom Shop '69 Aged Strat pickups that sing beautifully. Fitted in a classic Strat configuration with a single-coil in the neck, middle, and bridge positions, each one delivers clear, crisp tones that sparkle brilliantly. Control comes in the form of aged white plastic knobs for master volume, a tone control for the neck pickup, and a tone control for the bridge/middle pickup - not forgetting the five-way pickup selector switch.
The 2018 Limited Edition Strat-Tele Hybrid doesn't just look pretty with its 3-ply mint green pickguard, nickel/chrome hardware finish, and cool paint job. Fender have ensured that the hardware responds smoothly, so that the dexterity and nuances of your playing style are translated sweetly. A 2-point synchronized tremolo with bent steel saddles and pop-in tremolo arm offer the smoothest vibrato control. The headstock is home to deluxe staggered cast/sealed tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with the utmost precision.
Each model is supplied with an elite moulded case, and strung with Fender USA strings to get you off to a flying start. The unique Fender 2018 Ltd Edition Strat-Tele Hybrid Guitar in 2-Colour Sunburst won't be around for long, so act quickly to avoid disappointment.
