Legacies never die! Returning 40 years after being discontinued, Fender's Lead Series has resurfaced to inspire the new generation of punks and rockers! The Lead III sports dual-toggle switches for expanded tones, and of course - that unique Lead double-cutaway shape.

Overview:

Produced in the late '70s and early '80s, the Fender Lead Series had a relatively short lifespan and only a handful of originals can be found on second-hand online marketplaces. Instead of spending eyebrow-raising prices on these often battered vintage guitars, you can now pick up a brand new Fender Lead model that's not only affordable, but modernised to meet the demands of today's musicians!

In typical Fender fashion, the Lead III boasts a balanced-sounding Alder body that serves as a great foundation for the punchy-sounding pickups. Joining the body is a bolt-on Maple neck that yields a bright, snappy character; giving notes plenty of immediacy. Shaped to Fender's popular Modern "C" profile, this neck offers a comfortable feel that both contemporary and traditional players can enjoy.

Player Series Alnico 2 humbucking pickups give the Lead III its powerful tone. With thick lows, clear mids and sparkling highs; this dual humbucker configuration is surprisingly versatile. The switches allow you to not only switch between the pickups, but also engage a coil-split mode that provides you with articulate single-coil sounds.

The Fender Lead III comes equipped with a hardtail bridge, featuring block saddles that ensure maximum sustain and solid tuning stability, especially in conjunction with the vintage-style machine heads.
