Fender American FSR 60’s Lipstick Strat 2012 Cadillac Pink
Fender brings the style and the sound with unique Cadillac Pink FSR American made Stratocaster loaded with three Lipstick pickups. This extremely playable and tongue in cheek vibey guitar is as much fun to plug in as it is to look at. A solid ash body and traditional bolt on maple “Skunk Stripe” neck with rosewood fretboard bring together a classic combination of tone woods that bring this Stratocaster right to life.
The guitar feels great to play, medium jumbo frets on the slimmer feeling Fender “C” neck make for a real joy to get ahold of. The unique loading of three matched Fender Lipstick Pickups make for some great tones! Set up with a 5 way selector switch you get 3 strait single coil positions and 2 noise cancelling positions.
I plugged this guitar into a Marshall and was immediately smiling. The bridge gave of a great textural classic Fender rock and roll tone, the middle was warm and round and the neck pick up just begged for those big glassy bends and tones that it seems like only the neck position in a Strat can put out into the world. Rolling back the volume just a hair and the guitar began to clean up magnificently. Rolling back just a little more and my dirty Marshall went clean with no loss of top end. The guitar was gorgeous and glassy, lust luscious tones in all positions.
The FSR Guitars are becoming harder to find and more and more desirable and this instrument clearly illustrates why. An amazing, versatile and vibey Strat no doubt about about it.
The guitar has some minor buckle wear on the back that simply does not photograph…if you hold her up in the right light you can see it, but it’s very faint. There is a small chip on the upper horn which we’ve documented in the photos above. Also the previous owner cut the rectangular hole in the trem spring cover slightly larger in order to facilitate easier string changes with out removing the cover.
The guitar is freshly set up by the techs here at Diablo Guitars with D’addario 9-42 strings and plays like a dream. Ships with black tolex hard shell case seen in photos above.
