Fender has announced the Hypebeast Stratocaster, in partnership with the men’s contemporary fashion and street-wear brand.
The made-in-Japan Strat is most notable for its navy lacquer finish in Hypebeast’s signature shade, which appears across the entire guitar, including the fingerboard and headstock.
Other features include a 9.5” radius and 22 medium jumbo frets on the U-shaped maple neck, while the alder body is kitted out with vintage-style Strat single coils.
A co-branded neckplate appears on the rear of the guitar, and a Fender x Hypebeast G&G Deluxe hardcase accompanies the model.
The Fender Hypebeast Stratocaster is only available in limited quantities from Fender.com (opens in new tab) and HBX, Hypebeast’s online store (opens in new tab), for $1,600.
This isn’t the first time Fender has partnered with a fashion brand for a limited-edition model – back in 2017, the company partnered with New York’s Supreme on an all-white Strat.
