It’s March, which means it’s that time of year again when the Fender Custom Shop Master Builders band together to create a range of unique, one-of-a-kind electric guitars under the Prestige Collection umbrella.

As is the case every year, the 2022 installment features some truly eye-popping six-strings. With a heavy emphasis on Telecasters, the Collection contains only one Stratocaster model, a sole bass guitar and two offsets, all of which sport a range of stand-out specs.
