Following the launch of its hip hop-themed Midnight Hour Precision Bass, Fender has unveiled three Made-In-Japan Midnight models – a Stratocaster, Telecaster, and Precision Bass – sporting a Traditional ’60s build.

The three guitars boast sharp Gloss Black finishes, matching black-white-black pickguards, and gold hardware.

When it comes to tonewoods, the Stratocaster and P-Bass feature basswood bodies, while the Telecaster has an alder one. All three models come with U-shaped, 7.25-inch-radius maple necks complete with rosewood fingerboards.

Tone-wise, all three guitars are loaded with vintage-style pups. The Stratocaster and Telecaster feature standard single-coil pickup arrangements and controls, while the P-Bass sports a split-coil pickup wired to master volume and tone knobs.

Gold hardware appointments across the three Midnight models stand out from the Gloss Black finishes, while a Synchronized Tremolo is attached to the Stratocaster’s bridge to complete the classic Strat look.
