Fender Limited & Special Edition Guitars


In celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Stratocaster, Fender has announced the release of several limited edition American Standard and American Special Strat guitars, as well as a special edition Jazzmaster guitar. Here's the story in their own words...

The venerable American Standard Stratocaster now comes in a new limited edition model featuring Fender's innovative channel-bound compound-radius fingerboard and the time-honored look of a Dakota Red or Sonic Blue gloss finish. The fingerboard is inlaid into the neck in a design with an elegant appearance and a distinctive fretting-hand feel in which both edges are comfortably rounded, with no side seam between neck and fingerboard. Further, the fingerboard's 9.5"-14" compound radius graduates smoothly from a more rounded profile at the nut (great for chording) to a more flattened profile near the body (great for soloing).

In addition, Fender introduces two brilliant new limited edition looks for the American Standard Stratocaster--Vintage White with a tortoiseshell pickguard and rosewood fingerboard, and Aztec Gold with a parchment pickguard and maple fingerboard. All the acclaimed features, sound and style of the archetypal American Standard Stratocaster, now in even more beautiful finish options.

The U.S.-made American Special Stratocaster HSS now comes in a supercharged limited edition model with a Seymour DuncanĀ® Pearly Gates humbucking bridge pickup for even more pure, powerful tone. All the other great American Special features are still here, and a new Olympic White finish option lightens the look of one of the most formidable models in today's Stratocaster lineup.

The Blacktop Jazzmaster is now available in a scorching special edition HH model with dual humbucking pickups for even more supercharged tone. Further, a new all-black look features a Candy Apple Red racing stripe that takes a sleek cue from the great "competition stripe" Fender models of the late '60s and early '70s.
