Click any picture for supersize view!

Fender's new Pawn Shop series offers players an alternate universe version of classic Fender designs. Cool looks and tones at a great price. Made in Japan to the highest standards of quality. The Pawn Shop 51 is a crazy melding of a Tele, 50s P-Bass and a Strat along with a hot humbucker. The body is alder for good tone. The 25.5 inch scale maple neck features a 9.5 inch radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets. A Fender Enforcer humbucker teams up with a Texas Special single coil and is controlled by a push/pull pot and 3 way rotary switch. A string through hardtail bridge and vintage style tuners keep it rock solid. The finish is a gorgeous butterscotch blonde and is set off by a cool super sized black guard and chrome hardware. A very cool guitar that screams retro!

Like most Japanese Fenders, this guitar plays and sounds great. The action is nice and the frets are fine. The pickups deliver a variety of tones. Everything works as it should. This is a clean guitar. Collector owned, it was recently purchased new and traded in at my shop. Very little playwear or signs of use. Many would call it new old stock condition. Comes in a gigbag.

The Pawnshop 51 is a great guitar for anyone looking for retro vibe in a great performing package. Cool looks, cool tone and great feel all at a good price. $799 in superstores, here's one for less.
