LEGO Malaysia has confirmed the latest LEGO Ideas Fender Stratocaster set is arriving in the market on October 2021. For those who don’t know about the iconic Fender Stratocaster guitar, it was famously played by music legends and emerging artists alike and the industry standard guitar sound for music across genres.
The set was created by LEGO Ideas fan designer Tomáš Letenay. Hailed from Slovakia, he originally entered the design into the LEGO Ideas Music to Our Ears competition, but the reviews board at the LEGO Group loved the creation so much they commissioned it.
Speaking about the design, Tomáš commented, “I used to play electric guitar when I was a teenager and I always dreamed of owning a Fender Stratocaster – but I could never afford it. The competition on LEGO Ideas gave me the chance to create it in LEGO bricks. The Stratocaster was my gateway into music and I love seeing my LEGO design with the stand. I am hoping that other guitar fans get as much joy out of building it as I have.”
The set 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.
LEGO Malaysia has confirmed the LEGO Ideas Fender Stratocaster set will be retailing at RM 499.90. The set will be available from 1 October 2021 at LEGO Certified Stores and LEGOLAND in Malaysia.
