The LEGO Group has introduced the new LEGO® Ideas Fender® Stratocaster® set, an icon of music that was played by legends and a favorite among many. Despite being an old-school rock and roll fan, an indie rock, R&B, or heavy metal lover, or just passionate about music, the 1970s Fender Stratocaster is definitely a crowd-pleaser.
The LEGO model comes in two iconic colors – red or black. The guitar features six strings, poseable tuning pegs, and a tremolo arm for all the distortion you can handle. A folding display stand, foot pedal, and amp are also available to accompany the LEGO® Fender® Stratocaster®. The amplifier’s back and top covers can also be removed to show its inner speaker code, wiring, and intricate details such as the tubes, speaker, and motherboard.
The model is designed by Tomáš Letenay, a fan designer from Slovakia who commented saying, “I used to play electric guitar when I was a teenager and I always dreamed of owning a Fender Stratocaster – but I could never afford it. The competition on LEGO Ideas gave me the chance to create it in LEGO bricks. The Stratocaster was my gateway into music and I love seeing my LEGO design with the stand. I am hoping that other guitar fans get as much joy out of building it as I have.”
Federico Begher, VP of Global Marketing at the LEGO Group said, “The Fender Stratocaster guitar is iconic and has been at the heart of so many incredible songs over the years. We know many of our fans are passionate about music and we hope they enjoy the attention to detail in not only the guitar but also the accessories, such as the strap and the amp.”
The LEGO Ideas Fender Stratocaster set will be available at LEGO Certified Stores and LEGOLAND Malaysia beginning 1 October 2021.
