In 2015 Fender teamed up with Transport for London to produce a run of Stratocasters featuring the London Underground Tube Map. The collaboration was part of TfL's Transport by Design campaign. Initially a run of 50 guitars wwere produced.
The Mexican made Standard Stratocaster featured a maple neck on an alder bofy that was finished in Olympoic White on the reverse side and the London Tube Map on the front. The pickguard matched the guitar's body to complete the Tube Map design. The reverse of the headstock featured a London Underground medallion and the guitar's four bolt neck plate was also engraved with the Underground Logo.
After the initial run of 75 guitars, a further run of 100 was produced in mid to late 2016. My guitar is from this second run.
This was the second time that Fender had teamed up with Transport for London, in 2014 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Stratocaster and the iconic Routemaster double decker bus a run of 50 Routemaster Stratocasters were produced.
