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.
LEGO Fender Stratocaster
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
