Fender Stratocaster ‘Partscaster’ Relic Green, 1997

Fender Stratocaster 'Partscaster' Relic Green, 1997

When Leo Fender had the frankly brilliant idea of the bolt-together guitar and used ‘caster’ as part of the name, what’s known as a ‘Partscaster’ also came into existence. Partscasters were and continue to be a big trend. Modifying fenders to customize for each player’s needs, uses and tendencies end up being not only a good learning experience for those into DIY but offer more specific-to-the-player tool rather than the standard off-the-shelf instruments.

Part of the Standard Series built from 2009 to 2018, the Fender Jazz Bass LH Standard was built in Ensenada, Mexico and is an excellent mid-range bass. Leo Fender introduced the Jazz Bass in the summer of 1960, aiming it directly at those bassists who had not yet shifted to electric.

Fender American Elite Stratocaster Olympic Pearl, 2019

Fender American Elite Stratocaster Olympic Pearl, 2019

The Fender American Elite Stratocaster was built from 2016 to 2019 in Corona, California and is not to be confused with the 1980’s, CBS era ‘Stratocaster Elite’ models. Initially, these models had either Maple or Indian Rosewood fingerboards, but Rosewood was quickly dropped in favor of Ebony. This example dates to 2019 and features the classic Stratocaster body with deeper contours.

Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire® White Blonde

Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire® White Blonde

The Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire reproduces one of the earliest production electric guitars, the single pickup Esquire. This seminal instrument sparked an explosion in electric guitar production, particularly solidbody guitar production. Like the original run, the Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire uses a Roasted Pine body. Pine was readily available, inexpensive and easy to work, making it ideal for development of both the guitar design and production techniques.

Fender Stratocaster HardTail Black Refinish, 1977

Fender Stratocaster HardTail Black Refinish, 1977

The Fender Stratocaster HardTail was available alongside the revolutionary and better known 1954 tremolo-equipped version, and only discontinued around 2010, due to declining sales. Many country and rhythm players preferred the Fender Stratocaster HardTail for perceived increases in ‘snap’, sustain and tonal separation, and a slightly ‘drier’ sound than comes from the lack of trem springs. While many players block or otherwise disable the Trem, hard tail Strats never sold like the trem versions have.
