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
The Pawn Shop ’72 has a semi-hollow Stratocaster body with an f-hole, a Telecaster neck, rosewood fretboard (9.5 radius and 6105 frets), a Fender Wide Range humbucking neck pickup and Fender Enforcer humbucking bridge pickup, dual-knob chrome control plate with master volume and center-detented pickup blend, ’70s-style hard-tail Stratocaster bridge, ’70s-style Fender “F” tuners, mint green pickguard, bullet truss rod, three-bolt neck attachment and deluxe gig bag.
