2017 Fender Hybrid 60s Stratocaster Candy Apple Red w/ USA Pickups, Japan MIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2017 Fender Hybrid 60s Stratocaster in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. One of the finest (and now discontinued) Strat iterations ever produced by Fender Japan, and a model not available in the USA market, the Hybrid '60s Stratocaster is simply stunning in its forward-thinking design and player-friendly features. The guitar features an alder body, thick slab rosewood fretboard, USA-made Fender black bobbin pickups, USA-spec CTS pots, a two-point vibrato unit, locking vintage-style tuners, larger fretwire, a modern fretboard radius, and a smooth satin neck profile finish.

The perfect marriage of Vintage and Modern, the Hybrid '60 model is true to its name, yet the tonal range of the instrument is firmly in the Vintage camp. The alder body is a resonant, balanced tonal platform for the black bobbin Fender American Vintage 57/62 pickups, which feature staggered, beveled alnico magnets and cloth-covered leads; delivering a clear, sparkling top end, smooth midrange character, and a full yet focused bass that has a nice snap. This guitar weighs 7lbs 11oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.
