You may remember the story from September 2020 about a prototype LEGO Fender Stratocaster. Well, now a year later, the product is ready to launch! You can now build your very own Strat and matching Fender amp, albeit, from little plastic LEGO bricks.

Build your own Strat and matching amp!

This official release from LEGO was made in conjunction with Fender, and gives you the opportunity to build your own guitar and matching amplifier. You certainly won’t need any woodworking skills or electronics know-how with this build. And if you get stuck, just ask a child for help, as their eyesight is probably better than yours and they can build anything out of LEGO.

This 1074-piece set includes a Fender Stratocaster and a matching Princeton Reverb amp with accompanying foot pedal. You can choose to build your Strat in either a red or black finish (no relic here, it is all shiny and new). It even has the vintage tremolo bridge, strings and a guitar strap!

I have to admit that I think the Fender Princeton amp is the most impressive looking piece of the kit. I love how you can see those speaker cables in the rear of the combo cabinet. And look at those little plastic valves!

If you, or someone you know likes LEGO and loves guitars, then this new kit could be perfect for you, and would also make a great gift. It is designed to sit on display on a desk or shelf, so if you have room in your music room, you could easily squeeze it in. The LEGO Ideas Fender Stratocaster is officially due for release on 1 October and is already up on the online LEGO store. Priced at $99.99, it comes in a lot cheaper than the $349.99 Grand Piano kit, which is currently on backorder.

This kit is rated 18+, so it may not be appropriate for bass players, and if they do want one, they will probably need adult supervision.

RRP – USD 99.99

  1. A fellow musician. says:

    The cheap shot against bassists is not appreciated, nor is any “joke” where the entirety of the setup and punch line simply an insulting comment “intended in jest.”

    • Jef says:

      It’s not a joke. I’m deadly serious when it comes to bass players and safety.

      • James says:

        Now that’s how you answer a snowflake. Bravo.

        • Ab. says:

          Although there’s no reason to get offended…. “bass player joke” are always old, uninspired and unnecessary (and, no, I don’t play bass). It’s the musician equivalent of the cringe uncle’s joke at a family diner : as unfunny as they are unavoidable

          (also “snowflake” does taste stale nowadays)

  2. Ugo says:

    He he… as much as I love Legos and being a Strato owner I think this kit just doesn’t look good.
    Maybe the guitar should be much bigger for the bricks to catch the delicate forms and lines of the guitar. Now it’s all too bricky.

    • James says:

      I concur with this viewpoint. I collect both Fender musical gear and Lego, but I’m not going near this. It simply doesn’t work.

  3. Robert says:

    They’ve taken the unexpected elegance and visual appeal of the headstock annnndddddd totally ruined it.
