This Fender Made in Japan Traditional Stratocaster Reverse Head is a limited-run model for the Japanese market. It gives the classic vintage-style Strat a subtle twist by adding a reverse headstock and an anodized pickguard, plus gold hardware.

These Fender Made in Japan Traditional Stratocaster Reverse Head models come with an eye-catching reverse head and a gloss Sunburst finished alder body.

The look is completed with an anodized pickguard and gold hardware with eggshell/off-white plastics for the control knobs, tremolo arm tip and pickup covers.

Each one has a 9.5-inch radius “U” shape maple neck equipped with 21 vintage style frets and that reverse headstock. They also state specifically on the site that these have a narrower nut width (1.615″/41.02 mm) making it easy for Japanese players to play.

Classic Strat Formula

Hardware includes a 6 Saddle Vintage-Style Synchronized Tremolo Bridge and they come with a set of Vintage-Style Single-Coil Strat pickups.

It will be sold only in limited quantities, via the Fender Online Shop and Fender Shop in Miki Gakki,  Americamura. It is a very neat-looking ‘almost’ traditional-looking Stratocaster. I really like the reverse headstock aesthetic on Strats anyway and the classic colour scheme and choice of woods look great on this one.

Reverse headstocks also give you a longer string length behind the nut that can be great for subtle string bends and some players swear it sounds different to a regular Strat headstock, so it has a few potential advantages.

If you are in Japan, this is a sweet-looking Stratocaster and well worth checking out.

MSRP – ¥ 148,500 includes a Deluxe gig bag
