Fender’s FSR models have become legendary among players looking for something a little different from Fender. Fender stands for “Fender Special Run”, and describes any limited run instruments from Fender. Previously manufactured exclusively in Japan, nowadays FSR can refer to guitars made in Mexico, USA or Japan. The latest release hit our website this week, and available to order now! Take a look at our favourites from the new range…See The Full March 2019 Fender FSR Release
The Aerodyne is back! One of the coolest members of the Stratocaster family, this Made In Japan special run is a unique take on a classic. At a glance, the Aerodyne appears largely similar to a US or Mexican Strat, but look a little closer and you’ll see the exotic arched top and appealing body binding. A basswood body, beautiful figured maple top and classic rosewood fingerboard complete the wood selection.
These FSR guitars are highly coveted and give you a special blend of bang for your buck. Given that it’s priced under £900, many guitarists consider the Aerodyne to be the best Stratocasters on the market! Not to be missed if you are looking for a Strat that performs – you will treasure yours for years.
The wood of choice of Leo Fender, the American Pro Ash Stratocaster uses an Ash guitar body with a maple neck. Purists will enjoy the traditional feel of this Strat, as well as the characteristic balanced tone from the Ash tone wood. Famed for blending warmth and brightness, Fender used Ash exclusively during their early years.
There’s three Fender V-Mod pickups to give a precise voicing with a vintage-informed tone. This is as classic a Strat as you can get, and we think looks gorgeous in Butterscotch Blonde with the black pickguard!
Time for a couple of showstoppers… Introducing the FSR American Pro Rosewood guitars! There’s one each of the Telecaster and Stratocaster, in Champagne and Rose Gold respectively. The standout features of these instruments is undoubtedly the solid rosewood necks. These leave a striking visual impression as well as a unique playing experience.
The Tele uses the deluxe format with two Shawbucker pickups for a smooth vintage sound. The Strat is HSS configuration with V-Mods and a Shawbucker for well-balanced versatility. Classy yet ostentatious, familiar and unique in equal measure. We simply love these!

Favoured for its brightness and characteristic sound, the Jazz bass is the other bass guitar you should have!
