2023 Fender Hybrid II Stratocaster Sunburst, Near-Mint w/ Hangtag, Japan MIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2023 Fender Hybrid II Stratocaster in near-mint condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original gigbag and owner’s manual. This Japan-exclusive Strat is an ideal combination of classic aesthetics and modern, player-friendly features. 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 maple fingerboard with a modern 9 1/2“ radius and narrow/tall fretwire.

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.
