Fender Pawn Shop ’72
The Pawn Shop line from Fender is a great new series of guitars. This series of guitars is based on what you might find in a pawn shop in the mid 70s. These guitars are what people would have been putting together in their garages at home back in the day. They are essentially parts bin guitars that Fender feels represent the custom guitar attitudes of the time. Fender has created some cool designs for the Pawn Shop series based on what some crazy luthier would have made with a few broken Fender guitars. This is the Pawn Shop 72. It is similar to the 51 but it has more 70s style modifications. It has a Telecaster style neck with a 70s bullet truss rod adjustment. It has the 3 bolt 70s style neck with the micro tilt adjustment. There is an F-hole in the body like on a Thinline Tele. The neck pickup is a Fender WideRange pickup taken from an old Deluxe Tele from the 70s. It has an Enforcer in the bridge like the 51. The guitar has 2 knobs on it. It has a normal volume knob like what you would expect but next to it is a blend knob like you would find on a bass. The body is finished off by a hard tail bridge.


This guitar plays like a typical hard tail strat. It has a 9.5 radius which is kinda flat but it has medium jumbo frets that let you really use the whole neck in bends. The neck is smooth and lets you play fast. Upper fret access is like any other strat the heel kind of gets in the way but it isnt bad. The hard tail allows for good tuning stability and it is strung through the body for more sustain. The micro tilt adjustment provides an easy way to shim the neck without actually shimming it. The blend knob is a cool feature. It is notched in the middle so you know when you have both pickups on. You can dial in how much neck pickup and bridge pickup you want in the sound.


The bridge pickup bites hard like it did in the 51. It is bitey with good clarity. All the notes ring out well and you can hear just about every string in a chord. The neck pickup is nice and smooth like you would expect. The neck pickup on its own is really jazzy sounding with its darkness. The blend knob allows a cool mix of tones. You can dial in bite with the bridge humbucker with a bit of dark bottom end from the neck to get cool tones. Or you can make it mostly neck pickup and add a bit of bite and clarity from the bridge to clear up the tone. Using the blend knob while playing can get you cool wah like tones.


The Pawn Shop series is a great idea from Fender. I hope they keep making these guitars. Maybe they can make some 80s Pawn Shop guitars like Strats with Kahlers and humbuckers and whatnot. The 72 is from my Favorite era of Fender guitars. Because Fender guitars are modular they are so easy to mod and mix and match so you can get really cool and unique creations going on. If you are looking for a Fender that looks unusual and can give you great tones this is a good guitar.

Fender Pawn Shop ’72
Japanese guitar manufacturing, pawnshop is a cross between the thinline telecaster and strat. The guitar has only two knob, one volume and one to mix the two pickups.


Perfectly balanced handle Telecaster guitar, so extrememtn nice and simple to play. Lets play the guitar very easily.


The big highlight of the guitar is the sound. it is hot, ca resonates, it is for rock, stoner or otherwise. The bridge pickup is very loud but mixed with a bit of neck pickup adding it to the definition and roundness, the sound of the guitar spectrum covers a pretty impressive rate.


occz very good at the price for me puisqu'acheté a pittance for a guitar of this bill. What I like is indeed the micro mixer, neck, body, sound, etc. Everything.

Fender Pawn Shop ’72
Pawn Shop Series made in Japan. great job, no fault on my own in terms of violin making.
Strato alder body semi hollow with a hearing in f lined with white binding classy.
Channel U telecaster, rosewood fingerboard, relatively flat radius (but it is not an Ibanez ...). Mechanical vintage fender 70 which correctly reflect the tuning.
2 humbucker pickups: 1 Wide range reissue the handle and an enforcer to the bridge. Volume and micro scale with a mediating screen (terrible ... I love it)
Easel "Vintage 70" with string through.
Overall, despite the originality of the guitar, it is clearly in familiar territory and despite the form, to more than telecasters to stratos ... being an addict telecaster, adaptation was immediate.
In addition to being very beautiful, the guitar is light and well balanced.
For once, no surprises on an entry-level Fender (us, Southwestern jap ... or even worse note for Gibson ...).
Always the same remark on this type of guitar, economy miserly on electronics ... volume knob and blend low quality, firm and not progressive, and the blend volume is removed if wanted on my model .... thus changing the electronic ...


Channel telecaster relatively flat, very nice.
The guitar is light and well balanced, it sounds very good vacuum. easy access to acute (this is also a stratovolcano ...), the heel of the neck knows how to forget.
Between the body and the body holow travaerssantes strings, lots of shine and sustain, the sound is projected.
When to get a good sound, and if we accept the concept of a balance between two very typical microphones have good sound is simple (with good microphones), despite absbsence tone.


I do not have a particular style of music, I can be called upon to play or to play anything. so I typed several more guitars. I bought this pawn shop without having the need, by chance, it was a good secondhand in my city, knowing that I could sell it without loss. well I care, after mods ...
Therefore handle the reissue Wide range, we find the spirit of the 72 deluxe, but with a fairly large output level. Although jazz playing with volume, very good for a fat blues crunch, a little mushy in distortion ...
Trestle micro Enforcer ... careful, it laughs more with 24k output one is downright super mega nag mode, it sends serious steak and mad cow, I can reduce the gain of the amplifier (Class A lamp) within 2 to stop cruncher ... damn! And if you like it, it sounds more ... I do not like it ... therefore change the micro ...
big boring concept on this guitar, the balance between the two pickups. Many possibilities of sounds, experiments and achieve great effects (tom moreno leave this body). Electroplate a big deal saturated and have fun with the balance that makes him immediately, I love. I reflechis even a kill switch ...
Overall a very positive finding, if not the bridge pickup exclusively for skaters young guitarists mononeuronaux deaf and southern west coast of the united states and the Beauce and electronics m ... e .. .
After the change of micro electronics and the result is perfect for me ... Crunchbucker duesenberg a trestle and replacing knobs with knobs worthy of the name ... In my studio most guitarists who come to the big blues shredders or big end with this guitar is not for nothing .... duesenberg the microphone is just the perfect complement to this guitar. Harmonic killing


A very good guitar, and bastard with a big personality, a charm that sounds as is, carved in rock (guitar skaters and deaf teenagers mononeuronaux southern west coast of the united states and the Beauce), and a little jazz at times.
After changing the pickup, we face a sacred musical instrument with a unique personality.
Despite the form of strata, it is clearly in the telecaster world. Micro balance allows a multitude of sounds and makes it very interesting.
The value for money is excellent for me secondhand.
