Every Stratocaster enthusiast is looking forward to the soon to be released LEGO fender Stratocaster. This guitar is perfect for solo performances as it has all the controls one needs. The design was chosen from an ideas contest by LEGO that was dubbed ‘Music to Our Ears’. During this, fans were given an opportunity to design their dream electric guitar and the winning idea would be used to design the future LEGO Stratocaster. The contest was won by a user called Tomoell.
Tomoell based his idea on an electric guitar he hoped to own from his teenage years. He says that he worked during his school days just to save money and get an electric guitar. What he got was not perfect but the LEGO Stratocaster he has designed is an amazing instrument that any guitarist will love playing. This instrument is to be made using 335 LEGO pieces. Tomoell also came up with the design of a stand that uses 54 LEGO pieces and an amp that uses 287 pieces.
This guitar by LEGO will be a true fender Stratocaster. It has everything you would ever need in an electric guitar. From the tremolo to the single coils to the headstock there is no single piece missing on this instrument. Though the LEGO Company is new to making musical instruments, the design manager, Brick Fanatics, is really excited about this new venture. He says, “Everyone has seen the Fender Stratocaster guitar, it’s super famous and we think it’s going to be exciting to bring this to life using LEGO bricks.”
This Stratocaster will be available in various colors so you can choose the one you love. The options include yellow, white, blue, black and red. It will also come with an amp that is complete with a foot switch. How exciting! When will this fender be released? The actual date is yet to be confirmed but it is expected to be in 2021.
