Fender Classic Player 60s Stratocaster, Pau Ferro Fingerboard, Sonic Blue
During the 1960s, and for the 5 decades since, the Fender Stratocaster reigned supreme in the world of guitar music. Whether you listened to Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, or even George Harrison during the mid-to-late 1960s, chances are it was a Fender Stratocaster that you heard them playing. Put simply: it's the guitar that helped shape the music of a generation, and continued to do so for years to come.
An Authentic, Vintage Recreation of a Classic 1960s Stratocaster
In celebration of this classic instrument, Fender have released the Classic Player series, in this case a Classic Player 60s Stratocaster in three-tone Sunburst. Each component on this guitar has been specially researched and designed by Fender's illustrious Custom Shop master builders, and then built at Fender's factory in Baja California with a touch of vintage class.
Vintage 1960s Style Single-Coil Pickups
The superior sparkle and scream of these specially-voiced Custom '69 pickups is reminiscent of the full, punchy tone that helped define late 60's rock music. The warm, vintage-style sound they produce is rounded of with a nicely balanced output and volume.
"C" Neck Profile
The "C" profile shape is one of the most prevalent in the guitar industry. This remarkably comfortable neck shape is ideal for all playing styles, and offers a vintage-style feel reminiscent of Fender's first golden age of the 1950s and 1960s.
Medium Jumbo Frets
On a guitar fretboard, Medium Jumbo sized frets are just about the right size to work with any sound and playstyle, which is one of the key reasons for the guitar's reputation for versatility.
Vintage-Style Locking Tuners
A subtle combination that provides the best of Old and New, these tuners give you a vintage-style appearance but with the modern convenience of a locking functionality, increasing the guitar's tuning stability, and making tuning / string changing noticeably easier.
