The Fender FSR MIJ Traditional Midnight Stratocaster Electric Guitar is a breath-taking instrument that looks equally as good as it sounds. Known for their high standards of quality with regard to fit and finish, Fender's Made In Japan models are often coveted by collectors around the world. However, this is more than just a guitar to add to your growing collection, this is a sublime guitar that deserved to take centre stage on the grandest of platforms. Each model is supplied with a gig bag to encourage you to get out and performing straight away.
Sleek Strat' style
The Made In Japan Traditional Midnight Strat' adheres to the ergonomically designed double-cutaway body shape that has been the favourite of many a guitar legend through the years from Eric Clapton to Jimi Hendrix to Nile Rodgers. The slender depth of the body is paired with shapely curves that are designed to establish a figure-hugging feel to maximise playing comfort. Built using basswood, the MIJ Strat' retains a lightweight feel in the hands whilst affording a balanced tonal palette that runs from bouncing lower mids to clear, crisp highs. The elegant midnight black paintwork is protected by a coating of gloss polyester to uphold the integrity of the finish for as long as possible. Complementing the finish is an elegant 3-ply black/white/black pickguard, which provides additional protection against unwanted scrapes as you dish out licks and riffs.
Sweet Strat' neck
Fitted to the body via steady four-bolt construction is a responsive maple neck, which is carved to a comfortable "U" shape profile that is a joy to shift along. The neck has also been treated to a gloss polyester finish, which allows your fretting hand to shift seamlessly along unimpeded by friction. Paired with the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 21 vintage frets that are adorned with white dot position inlays to aid in your navigation. The rounder 7.25-inch radius allows the natural curvature of your fingers' grip to slip sweetly across each fret without having to strain or struggle.
Trio of Strat' pickups
The MIJ Midnight Stratocaster is equipped with a trio of pickups that set the standard for the guitar's versatile tonal palette. Fitted in the neck, middle and bridge positions are vintage-style single-coil Strat' pickups, which are designed to resurrect tones that have inspired guitarists for many a year. Whether you are sashaying through jazz standards, tearing through hard rock riffs, tipping your hat to the blues masters and chopping through funky rhythm, the five-way pickup selector switch and tone pots allow you to tailor your tone to suit any style.
The body is fitted with a 6-saddle vintage-style synchronised tremolo bridge, which allows you to infuse vibrato into each and every flourish whilst upholding intonation and sustain with precision. The headstock is home to Fender vintage-style tuning machines, which maintain tuning integrity dutifully as you rock out. The gold hardware finish complements the midnight paintwork in stunning fashion.
