The Fender Stratocaster is often regarded as the most legendary guitar model in rock-history. With legends such as Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Jimi Hendrix, Malmsteen, and Buddy Holly picking it as their guitar of choice, it’s fair to say the Strat (as it’s lovingly called) is a rock icon. It’s even the same guitar that was used for Deep Purple’s Smoke On The Water guitar riff, and for David Gilmour’s guitar solo in Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb.
While the guitar attained legendary status nearly half a century ago, LEGO aficionado TOMOELL is finally giving it its rightful place in LEGO’s brick-laden universe. TOMOELL’s LEGO Fender Stratocaster is an immaculate beauty, looking very recognizably like the original. It comes with 6 faux-strings that connect from the bridge all the way down the fretboard to 6 tuning keys (I’m fairly certain those are representational too), and even sports the knobs, pickups, and the vibrato arm that guitarists love to use! Made from 335 LEGO bricks, the Strat is incomplete without its accessories, a 54-piece guitar-stand, a 287-piece Fender amp, and even a tiny foot-pedal for extra effect!
The model comes in as many as 5 colors and stands at approximately 1½ feet tall. It currently is a hot favorite in the LEGO Ideas community, with a lot of the community voting for LEGO to officially produce it as a production-ready kit.
