Pretty faithful reissue with 25.1" scale length. Read all about it HERE:
A Reverb seller based in Texas, USA has accidentally leaked the new Fender Limited Edition HM Strat 2020, an eye-popping reissue of the ’80s shredder model from California.
Fender Limited Edition HM Strat 2020 Reverb seller mundt music of Longview has just listed a Flash Pink Fender Limited Edition HM Strat 2020! According to the listing there are only 300 pieces available worldwide. So if the information there is true, that’s a very limited edition indeed!
’80s Shredder We know it has a recessed Floyd Rose Special locking trem system, a 25.1″ scale length and a super flat 17” radius fretboard in either maple or rosewood.
The Reverb listings text includes the following information:
The limited-edition HM Strat sports the same unique look and specs that helped the ’88-92 models compete with the hot-rodded Strat impersonators of the day. Built in the same factory as the original, the HM (for Heavy Metal) Strat features a narrow “C” neck, with unique 25.1” scale, 17” radius maple or rosewood fingerboard with 24 Jumbo frets for nearly effortless bends and technical fretwork. A Floyd Rose Special recessed bridge keeps everything perfectly in-tune even after the deepest dive-bombs and the high-gain HSS pickup configuration delivers hot humbucker tones in the bridge that can be split for more traditional Strat sounds when combined with the single coil neck and middle pickups. Other features include Gotoh tuners, moulded ‘F’ logo knobs and black head cap with highly stylised ‘80s-era “STRAT” silk logo.
Hey Stratsnhatz! Good to see you back here! I took an long break too, when my cable provider discontinued the free space this was hosted on. Luckily, a great guy from the other side of the pond (Stefan) offered to help me get it back up and running.
Jozjonlin - hey, that new white HM looks great next to your vintage HM! How does it compare?

Hi Jim, thanks! Sorry to hear of your troubles, glad you managed to get back up and running. Good man Stefan! Yeah I drifted away from the whole scene, quit playing in bands and don't pick up a guitar as often these days sadly. But yeah, had some fun times on here, cool to see it still up and running and with some newer members!
