Fender Introduces New Additions to Pawn Shop Series-
The Pawn Shop Series introduces yet anotherpleasingly unconventional assortment of "guitars that neverwere but should have been," in which new models take the stageand long-vanished classics return in modern form. Fender is excitedto welcome four new, out-of-the-ordinary models to its innovativeand popular Pawn Shop series-the Pawn Shop '70s Strat Deluxe, PawnShop Super-Sonic™, Pawn Shop Mustang® Bass and Pawn Shop BassVI.
The Pawn Shop '70s Strat Deluxe is one of themost unusual takes ever on the world's most archetypal electricguitar, with a pronounced 1970s style and vibe. For tonalversatility, its alder body houses a Telecaster single-coil neckpickup and an Enforcer™ humbucking bridge pickup with a smallerWide Range chrome cover. Other distinctive features include a"U"-shaped maple neck with 22 medium jumbo frets, 9.5" radius and"bullet" truss rod; four-ply white pearloid pickguard; three-wayblade pickup switching and two Jazz Bass control knobs (mastervolume, master tone); '70s-style hard-tail Stratocaster bridge andvintage-style "F" tuners. Available in 2-Color Sunburst, Black andVintage White.
The Pawn Shop Super-Sonic model resurrects an unusual,short-lived and increasingly collectible ancestor of the late1990s, the Squier® Vista Series Super-Sonic guitar. Very littleabout the Pawn Shop Super-Sonic isn't highly distinctive-from itsdiminutive offset "reverse" body (resembling an upside-downJazzmaster® or Jaguar®) and upside-down headstock to its shortscale (24") and dual canted Atomic™ humbucking pickups (only thebridge pickup was canted on the original Squier models). Then thereare the controls--neck pickup volume and bridge pickup volume only(no tone control), which are reverse-wired like the Squieroriginal, meaning that the bridge pickup volume is the one closestto the bridge and the neck pickup volume is the one farthest fromit. Other features include a "C"-shaped maple neck with"bullet"-style truss rod, 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22medium jumbo frets, three-way toggle pickup switching and dual JazzBass control knobs, three-ply parchment pickguard, vintage-stylesynchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuners and newSuper-Sonic four-bolt neck plate. Available in Apple Red Flake,Dark Gun Metal Flake and Sunfire Orange Flake.
