Fender has relaunched the Boxer Series Stratocaster HH, a late-80s model released at the apex of the superstrat era. 

The Japanese-built model features a basswood body, a thin-C neck profile, and a 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard outfitted with 22 Jumbo frets. The guitar also packs a two-point tremolo bridge.

As one would expect, the two Boxer Series humbuckers are of the high-output variety, and they're controlled by a single master volume control that can be coil-split with a dedicated toggle switch.

Where things get interesting though, is the Boxer Strat's tone control, which features a TBX Treble Bass Expander that allows for additional treble, presence, bass, and output once you move past the standard tonal options found in positions 1 through 5.

Visually, the guitar is outfitted with a black-painted headstock, black hardware, and control knobs that – like those on the original – feature a rubberized "F"-logo.

The Fender Boxer Series Stratocaster HH is available now – in Sherwood Green Metallic and Inca Silver finishes – for $1,199.99.
