Fender Blacktop Strat
Out of stock
Fender’s Blacktop range shakes up some their most popular designs to offer something a little different. The Mahogany Strat is no exception, combining striking looks with fat Mahogany tone and an HH pickup configuration.
Body & Neck
Strats are known for their balanced tone, sometimes with a slightly scooped midrange, courtesy of either an Alder or Ash body. Not for this model though; Mahogany makes a rare appearance. As a result, this Strat has a weight low-end resonance and a honky midrange – perfect humbucker territory.
For the neck, it’s the familiar Maple, this time featuring a larger ‘70s-style headstock. This adds to the edgy appearance of the Blacktop, and the use of Maple offers the perfect amount of top-end sparkle to complement the hefty Mahogany sound. Gloss black headstock finish too.
Hardware & Electronics
Powerful dual Alnico humbuckers provide a higher output, delivering snarling tone that’s perfect for fat riffs and soaring leads alike. A 5-way switch means a no-nonsense palette, from chunky to chunkier.
Notable hardware details include the amp-style Blacktop knobs, vintage-style Fender tuning pegs, and 3-ply pickguard. Gold hardware adds a final polished element to a guitar that’s otherwise oozing attitude.
