If you were rocking poodle hair in 1988, odds are you’re familiar with the original HM Strat. It was Fender’s answer to the Superstrat craze. The Limited Edition HM Strat is a re-creation of this coveted model. It all starts with a basswood body — the tonewood of choice for ‘80s-era shredders, thanks to its warm, growling sound with mix-piercing mids. Plug into a British stack (or into your favorite refrigerator-sized rack), and you’ll experience hard-hitting rock tones, courtesy of a versatile HSS pickup configuration. The Limited Edition HM Strat’s comfortable Thin “C”-shaped maple neck boasts a unique 25.1" scale and easy-playing 17"-radius fingerboard that simply begs for rapid-fire 2-handed tapping. You also get a Floyd Rose Special tremolo. After all, whammy bar abuse is a requisite for glam metal-style shredding. A stylized ‘80s-era STRAT silk headstock logo and molded “F” logo knobs complete the package. The Fender Limited Edition HM Strat is a must-have electric guitar for glam metal aficionados.
