Fender Made in Japan Limited Hybrid II Noir

More new Fender Japan models are being released in Europe and this time it is the Made in Japan Limited Hybrid II Noir Series, consisting of three guitars and a single bass model. The three models being released include a Stratocaster, Telecaster and Jazzmaster, plus a Jazz Bass. 

They follow on from the recent Japanese limited-run HSS and SSS Hybrid II models and the Sakuraburst Stratocaster.

There was a previous Fender Noir run back in 2017, but with different models and they were all made in Mexico.

Satin Black

Each guitar comes in a satin black finish with a matching headstock and a 3-Ply black pickguard with a subtle red centre layer. Then factor in the all-black metal and plastic parts, which all add to the stealthy ’80s vibe of these models.

Specifications

Each model has an alder body paired with a maple C-profile neck that has a dark rosewood 9.5″ radius fretboard. The fretboards have 22 Narrow Tall frets and white dot fret markers, plus a black synthetic bone nut.

I like that they have matching satin black headstocks, each with a red metal Fender logo applied.
