5. Fender FSR Guitars

From time to time, Fender will release Factory Special Run (FSR) guitars in limited numbers. These special guitars are similar to ‘Spot Production’ guitars from Ibanez as they may only be available in select regions.

7. Fender Mod Shop

Until recently, Fender had offered their ‘American Design Experience‘ service, which allowed USA customers to create their dream guitar or bass using their online builder. This has now been replaced with the newly launched ‘Fender Mod Shop‘ – which is a revamped and improved version of the previous service.

The Mod Shop webpage consists of a simple-to-use interface which allows players to design a custom Strat, Tele, Jazzmaster, Jaguar, Acoustasonic, P-Bass or Jazz Bass. Available options include body color and wood, fingerboard wood, pickguard material, hardware color, type of pickups, tuning machines and bridge style – and of course, left handed mode!

Fender Mod Shop Builder Interface

Once your design is complete, simply add it to your cart and pay. Fender will send you your custom guitar (free shipping in the USA) within just 30 days! I was able to come up with the 7 designs below in a matter of minutes.

Fender Mod Shop Left Handed Guitars

Unfortunately this service is only available to USA-based customers at the time of writing. If you are outside of the USA (like me!) you won’t be able to order your guitar, but it’s fun to have a little play to see what you can come up with!

Head to fendermodshop to start building!

8. Fender Custom Shop

Last, but certainly not least, we have the ‘Dream Factory‘, aka the Fender Custom Shop. Here, you can have the skilled Fender craftsmen build you your absolute dream guitar. The only limit here is going to be the size of your wallet!

To give you an idea of what they’re capable of, check out the guitar below that one of our customers ordered a little while back. This Masterbuilt ’72 Thinline Tele relic has to be one of the most incredible lefty Fenders I’ve ever seen!
