Fender adds three MIJ models to its ‘Midnight’ range
The guitars are decked out with Gloss Black finishes and gold hardware.
Following the release of its snazzy Midnight Hour Precision Bass, Fender has lined up three Made-In-Japan Midnight models – a Stratocaster, Telecaster, and Precision Bass – sporting a Traditional ’60s build.
The ‘Midnight’ guitars boast sharp Gloss Black finishes, matching black-white-black pickguards, and gold hardware.
In terms of tonewoods, the Stratocaster and P-Bass feature basswood bodies, while the Telecaster has an alder one instead. All three models feature U-shaped, 7.25-inch-radius maple necks paired with rosewood fingerboards.
Tone-wise, all three guitars are loaded with vintage-style pups. The Stratocaster and Telecaster feature standard single-coil pickup arrangements and controls, while the P-Bass sports a split-coil pickup wired to a master volume and tone knob.
Gold hardware appointments across the three ‘Midnight’ models accent the Gloss Black finishes, while a Synchronized Tremolo is attached to the Stratocaster’s bridge for a classic Strat look.
The Stratocaster and Telecaster models retail at $799.99 each, while the Precision Bass retails at $899.99. More information at fender.com.The post Fender adds three MIJ models to its ‘Midnight’ range appeared first on The Guitar Magazine.
