Fender Strat, made in Japan 2014, in limited edition orange burst over quilt maple. The limited-run finishes Fender do for the Japan-only market tend to be the most outrageous, this is a great example! The quilt maple top is stunning, it's truly something to behold. Add some mango-coloured lacquer, gold hardware, pearloid guard and a clean maple board and you've got a bling-tastic head turner. You get the '62 style quick slim neck, but unusually for a '62, the board is maple instead of rosewood; it's very comfortable to play. Aside from the looks, she packs plenty of sonic punch too; the alder body lends the single coils a thick, bright spank with plenty of attack and body.
