2022 Fender Hybrid II Stratocaster Forest Blue w/ Hangtags, Japan MIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2022 Fender Hybrid II Stratocaster in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original gigbag and factory paperwork. This Japan-exclusive Strat is an ideal combination of classic aesthetics and modern, player-friendly features, with a bevy of premium appointments include a two-point tremolo, locking tuners, USA-spec CTS pots, a satin-finish Modern C-shaped neck profile, and a 22 fret rosewood fingerboard with a modern 9 1/2“ radius and narrow/tall fretwire. This particular example, sourced directly from Tokyo, sports an uncommon gloss custom color Forest Blue finish accented by a mint green pickguard.

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 twangy and clear, with a touch of extra low end kick, the neck pickup is throaty and full while retaining exceptional clarity, and the “in-between” positions on the five-way selector switch deliver quintessential hollow Strat quack. This Hybrid II Stratocaster weighs 7lbs 7oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
