In 2007, Fender released a limited-run Strat model designed as an homage to the original p-Bass. They were only made for a year, were sold until supply ran out, and are excellent oddball instruments from the Late Aughts.
The body is a standard Strat carve, painted cream and containing a unique pickguard and control plate combo that are modeled directly on those of a ’51 P-Bass. Electronics are stone simple, with a GFS tele pickup in front and a Duncan Designed humbucker in the back (both upgrades from stock), controlled by a volume control and 3-way selector. The back pickup also coil taps with a pull of the volume pot, making this instrument altogether different from a standard strat or tele, and rather versatile on its own.
The Neck is a standard bolt-on Fender neck with a headstock again modeled after a ’51 P. The fingerboard is maple with dot inlays, and it sits true and feels comfortable with a 25 1/2″ scale.
