Cars and Fender® Guitar Favorites: A Longstanding Pink Connection

Fender Lipstick Strat Shell Pink-jpg.com The official color of Fender’s® 2012 American Standard FSR Special Run Lipstick Stratocaster is listed as Shell Pink. But that description is only half theFender Lipstick Stratocaster Shell Pink-jpg.com story. Made in Corona, California and equipped with three “jangly” Seymour Duncan SLS1 pickups, the finish of the FSR replicates the paint used on a 1956 Chrysler DeSoto automobile. I had a local luthier set the action on my Lipstick Strat for slide playing. No doubt, pink is the color of classic sound and beauty, all in one.
