After the successful HM Strat adventure, Fender continues to re-visit its ’80s catalogs in search of inspiration & as we know it, commercial ideas. No surprises here as the Boxer Strat (HH) is resurrected for 2021. These will be made in Japan & only offered in two finishes in the mean time; inca silver (above) & sherwood green (below).
As seen in the pics, the guitar will feature a coil split switch (that toggle in between the knobs) & a TBX tone control. This essentially boosts the instrument’s low/top end frequencies while acting as a standard tone control in the lower range. With these models, other brand names need not fear competition but the Charvel Pro-Mods might suffer a little in terms of market share but then again, Fender owns the Charvel brand name & would be mindful in keeping the differences alive.
