Overview

Fender Classic Series 50s Stratocaster Lacquer, Maple Fingerboard, Lacquered 2-Color Sunburst Finish, Includes Classic Tweed Case

To many Fender enthusiasts, the original 1950s models will always be the best. These stunning guitars opened peoples ears to the sonic possibilities that a solid bodied electric guitar could produce, whilst also offering a much more comfortable playing experience than the larger-bodied semi-hollow guitars of the day.

The Essence of the 50's Rekindled

With the all-new Fender Classic Series 50s Stratocaster you get a guitar that evokes the spirit of the USA's Golden Era - a time when Rock and Roll began rearing its head amongst the mainstream, where cars with huge fins were a regular sight on the streets of LA, and where these new-fangled instruments were appearing from a tiny little company in Southern California named "Fender Electronic Instrument Manufacturing Company".

Rock Solid Sensibility

Featuring those classic Fender Stratocaster body curves, a "soft V"-shaped maple neck with maple fingerboard, a 2-Tone Sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finish, and a set of Vintage-Style Single Coil Stratocaster pickups, this guitar is certainly a dream to play.

Vintage Pickups

Whilst the Fender Stratocaster's looks and playability were what hooked many guitarists once they'd tried one, the array of tones they could showcase is arguably what got them interested in the first place. The pickups in this guitar reproduce that same brilliant clarity, definition, and harmonic articulation of those original single coils.

"Soft V"-Shaped Neck Profile

A softer alternative to the traditional "Hard V", this particular neck profile is often preferred by players more comfortable with their thumb hanging over the edge of the fingerboard when they play (Stevie Ray Vaughn being a notable example).
