Fender Black Paisley Stratocaster HSS

This guitar is the latest model to showcase the black paisleyfinish, a dark and semi-psychedelic new look for Fenderinstruments.

This 25.5" scale guitar is still a Stratocaster at heart, with abody made of alder, cut into the familiar double cut-away Stratshape. It has a maple neck topped with a rosewood fretboard, boltedinto the body. The neck's modern "C" shape and urethane finish makeit easier to play along its 21 medium jumbo frets.

The Black Paisley Stratocaster HSS is equipped with StandardSingle-Coil Strat Middle and Neck pickups. This will give youtraditional Fender tones in conjunction with the 5 position pickupselector.

Since it is in HSS (humbucker, single-coil, single-coil)configuration, the guitar is equipped with a Fender StandardHumbucking Pickup at the bridge. This modern configuration lets youuse your strat as a high gain riffing and soloing machine.

Chrome hardware and its vintage style synchronized tremolobridge rounds up its impressive looks. In my opinion, it would havebeen better if the fretboard was maple, and maybe have the sametransparent paisley finish all the way through to the headstock.Still, this is undeniably a great looking instrument, at theopposite end of the "relic" trend that Fender seems to follow.

Price information is still unavailable as of this writing. Formore information about the Black Paisley Stratocaster HSS, you canvisit Fender.
