Premier Guitar recently posted this video review of the new Fender Pawn Shop Series of guitars that were released earlier this month:
I find these to be fairly interesting, as they’re nothing like anything Fender currently produces. There’s a Pawn Shop ’51, which has a Strat body with a Tele neck and Tele-like appointments, aside from a humbucker in the bridge position. There’s a Pawn Shop ’72, which has a Thinline Strat body with a wide-range humbucker in the neck and a regular humbucker in the bridge position. It also has a Tele neck. Finally, there’s the Pawn Shop Mustang Special, which has a Mustang body, a 24″ scale neck and dual Enforcer humbuckers.
I haven’t had a chance to play one yet, but the ’72 looks like the most interesting model to me. If you’ve played one of the Pawn Shop Series, let me know what you think of them.
