2022 Fender Hybrid II Stratocaster Forest Blue, Japan MIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2022 Fender Hybrid II Stratocaster in exceptional condition and in perfect working order. This Japan-exclusive Strat is an ideal combination of classic aesthetics and modern, player-friendly features. Premium appointments include a two-point vibrato, locking tuners, USA-spec CTS pots, a satin-finished Modern C neck profile, a 22-fret maple fingerboard with a modern 9 1/2“ radius and narrow/tall fretwire, and a gloss Forest Blue finish.

Tonewoods include an alder body and maple neck, and the Hybrid II Custom Voiced single coil pickups feature staggered, beveled alnico pole pieces, specifically voiced to accentuate the best qualities of each pickup position. The bridge is sparkling and clear, with a touch of extra low end kick, the neck pickup is throaty and full, and the “in-between” positions on the five-way selector switch deliver quintessential hollow Strat quack. This Hybrid II Stratocaster weighs 7lbs 14oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

The gloss Forest Blue custom color finish exhibits only signs of very light use including a bit of pick scuffing on the guard, a few minor nicks on top and along the lower bout perimeter, and faint buckle wear on the back largely constrained to the tremolo cavity cover. The satin finish on the neck profile is immaculate.

The original Fender-branded gigbag is included.
