Self confessed guitar nuts and LEGO enthusiasts are in for a treat with this newest collaboration. Featuring six strings, poseable tuning pegs and a tremolo arm, this Fender Strat has all the bells and whistles you’d expect. In addition to the guitar, there’s a model of the ’65 Princeton Reverb amp with removable top and back panels so you can view the inner circuitry, tubes and reverb tank.

Tomáš Letenay who designed the LEGO Fender Stratocaster for a design competition says: “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.”
