A year ago, LEGO® Ideas announced the first wave of 2020 sets to pass the review phase. Among them was the winner of the Music to Our Ears contest held earlier in the year. The LEGO® Group officially revealed the final set today, and we can now announce that the Fender Stratocaster is coming soon. For those unfamiliar with the aforementioned contest, the Ideas team asked fans to submit any build relating to music. Subsequently, judges selected designs that moved onto a fan vote phase. The Stratocaster rose to the top of the heap.
The official press release shares the following details:
The iconic Fender® Stratocaster® guitar, famously played by music legends and emerging artists alike and the industry standard guitar sound for music across genres, has now been meticulously reimagined in LEGO bricks.
Whether you are an old school rock and roll fan, an indie rock, R&B or heavy metal lover or just passionate about music, the LEGO model of the 1970s Fender Stratocaster is sure to be a crowd pleaser and includes the option to either build a red or black version of the iconic guitar.
The guitar features six strings, poseable tuning pegs and a tremolo arm for all the distortion you can handle. Plus, there is also a folding display stand, and an accompanying foot pedal and amp. The amplifier’s back and top covers can also be removed to show its inner speaker code, wiring and intricate details such as the tubes, speaker and motherboard.
