Pawn Shop ’70s Strat Deluxe

pawnstrat-thumbThe oddly named “Pawnshop” series of Fender guitars is one of the more unique, if not confusing, parts of the FMIC universe. But none-the-less sometimes they are too cool to ignore. And, now just before Winter NAMM, Fender introduces 4 new Pawnshop Series guitars.

Of the most interest to Strat lovers is the Pawn Shop ’70s Strat Deluxe. By Fender’s own admission this is one of the most unusual takes ever on the Stratocaster electric guitar. Its alder body houses a Telecaster® single-coil neck pickup and an Enforcer™ humbucking bridge pickup with a smaller Wide 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-way blade pickup switching and two Jazz Bass® control knobs (master volume, master tone); ’70s-style hard-tail Stratocaster® bridge and vintage-style “F” tuners. Available in 2-Color Sunburst, Black and Vintage White. An odd, but unusual duck, indeed. MSRP for this is 1,079.99 (or if it was a real pawn shop itme it would be $27,500 marked down to $1,079.99 but only for you and only today. Cash only, of course.)

    That Pawnsonic looks like something off the first Planet of the Apes film. It’s a real multi tool. A musical instrument, and useful for clubbing stinking humans.

    I think some of the Pawn Shop offerings are cool but…….. I will not buy any name brand guitar including Fender with the word Pawn attached to it. I’m afraid that trying to sell or trade years down the road will get you strange looks and comments. Thing like “That is not a real Fender” and/or “You got it at a Pawn shop?”. I believe the long term value opportunity is gone with the pawn series.

    Hey Tomoff, maybe “******PAWN PRIZE*******” would’ve floated a little ‘bettah’……………’jus saying’ …(see above)
