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.
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.
