Fender Release Pawn Shop Series
Described as ‘guitars that never were but should have been’, Fender’s three new Pawn Shop Series models take inspiration from some of their more adventurous mid-60s and mid-70s models.
The three models are the ’51, ’72 and the Mustang Special Specs are as follows:
The Pawn Shop ’51 has a Stratocaster body and a “C”-shaped Telecaster® neck, with a single-coil Texas Special neck pickup, Fender Enforcer™ humbucking bridge pickup and a dual-knob chrome control plate. Other features include a maple fretboard with modern 9.5″ radius and medium jumbo frets, master volume control with push-pull coil split, three-position rotary pickup selector knob, ’70s-style hard-tail Stratocaster bridge, vintage-style tuners and strap buttons, and deluxe gig bag. Finish options: Black/Blonde
