What's special about this item?
Feature: What it does:
Basswood body Big, warm midrange tones
Coil-tapping option Splits humbucking pickups into single-coils
Floyd Rose Special tremolo Smooth and stable whammy work
Maple fretboard Delivers a bright, snappy sound
The limited-edition HM Strat sports the same unique look and specs that helped the '88-92 models compete with the hot-rodded Strat impersonators of the day. Built in the same factory as the original, the HM (for Heavy Metal) Strat features a narrow "C" neck, with unique 25.1" scale, 17" radius maple or rosewood fingerboard and 24 Jumbo frets for nearly effortless bends and technical fretwork.


Watch as Ethan Brosh puts the HM Strat through its paces in this video from Fender:


A Floyd Rose Special recessed bridge keeps everything perfectly in-tune even after the deepest dive-bombs and the high-gain HSS pickup configuration delivers hot bridge humbucker tones that can be split for more traditional Strat sounds when combined with the single-coil neck and middle pickups.

Other features include Gotoh tuners, molded 'F' logo knobs and black headcap with highly stylized '80s-era "STRAT" silk logo.

Available in four original era-correct Day-Glo colors - Frozen Yellow, Flash Pink, Ice Blue and Bright White.
