We’ve just cracked the ancient seal on a pristine shipment of Fenders, and have a few gorgeous Mexican-made Stratocasters lighting up our walls at this very moment!

The white stratocaster with maple neck is a look that’s become part of rock heritage, and if you close your eyes, you can see Hendrix playing it at woodstock. You can see Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Yngwie Malmsteen, Ritchie Blackmore .. it’s not just an iconic symbol of music culture, it’s a piece of history.

The Aged Cherry Burst ‘Plus’ top is a glance at how elegant and sophisticated a Fender Stratocaster can be - the rich, warm colour fading to a smoky dark edge like a spotlight catching you centre-stage, and the flame maple body has been carefully selected and treated to highlight the beautiful rippling grain of the timber.

They both have the modern ‘C’ shaped neck, which feels slick and easy in the hand, and have a gentle satin-finish to the neck back, which slides easily through the palm, without gripping your thumb, and both seem just a little lonely, on this chill morning - perhaps you should come in store, and keep them company?
