Check out new additions to the riff-ready Japanese range.

Following the revival of the Boxer series Stratocaster earlier this year, Fender have fleshed out the range even further with the additions of new Telecaster and Precision Bass models.

Similar to that of Fender’s Heavy Metal Strat last year, the Japanese-made Boxer series is comprised of bright finishes and quality specs, inspired by the company’s flashy mid-’80s output.

Both the Boxer Telecaster and Precision Bass are constructed from basswood bodies with bolt-on medium C-shaped maple necks, while a 12″ radius rosewood fretboard rounds out the equation.

Like its double-cut brethren, the Boxer Tele features two custom high-output humbuckers, while the Precision Bass boasts a set of PJ pickups to tap into that classic ’80s configuration.

Both instruments are also wired with Fender’s TBX – or Treble Bass Expander – modification to hype up the overall tone of the guitar. This essentially changes the resistance of the single via a stacked 250k passive control pot, letting you beef up your tone with more bass, treble and volume upon engaged.

Other features include die-cast tuners and solid black hardware on both models, with the Telecaster being available in Torino Red and Inca Silver finishes and the Precision Bass being available in Torino Red and Sherwood Green Metallic.
