This exclusive Fender model was made in very limited numbers for the (now defunct) chain of Daddy’s Junky Music stores in the US north-east. Custom ordered as a Fender Special Run, the limited edition MOTO* Strats were shared out across the 12 Daddy’s stores in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Vermont.
We believe there were 60 built in MOTO Red and 60 in MOTO Blue. We’ve never seen a blue version, but the red was officially designated as Midnight Wine. (Somewhere between Candy Apple Red and Candy Cola) Along with the translucent red knobs, pickup covers and whammy tip, the red MOTO scratchplate sets off the body color to perfection.
