On Hold - Fender Pawn Shop '51 Made in Japan 2011 Blonde

Shipping calculated at checkout.

No sales tax for customers outside California.

Everything you've heard and read about Fender's Pawn Shop '51 is true, if you listen to and read about such things.  If you don't, just trust me when I say that this is a surprisingly cool and well playing guitar.  

This particular example is from 2011, the first year the guitar was made.  It is in nearly new condition with very little wear on the frets, or anywhere else for that matter.  It is light - just under 7.5 pounds - with a killer neck.

As is true for all Made in Japan Fender guitars, it has a quality feel and look.  The fit and finish is much better than the price tag dictates.

The guitar is all original with no changes or repairs.  We set it up with a new set of 10-46 strings and checked the truss rod to make sure there is room for future neck relief adjustments.  

Included is the original Guitar Center price tag and a gig bag.
