With era-correct pickups, classic colors and other coveted features from the 50s, 60s and 70s, these instruments have all the sound and style of the decades that defined them. Now, to extend the line in 2020, we’re introducing our popular “Road Worn” finish package to select models in the lineup. Exclusive to the Ensenada factory, the lacquered Road Worn® finish offers the weathered, worn-in look and feel that’s become a staple of our Custom Shop offerings at a consumer-friendly price point.
For players who want the style and sound of Fender’s golden era, we created the Vintera® ‘50s Stratocaster®. Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decade—including period-accurate neck profile and hardware, along with re-voiced pickups—this guitar has all of the chime and articulation that made the Stratocaster a legend.
For authentic, vintage-style tone we recreated the trio of single-coil Stratocaster pickups to sound more like the originals. Crystalline and bell-like, they have the crisp, articulate tone that put Fender on the musical map. The updated “Soft V”-shaped neck has a 7.25”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style, six-point synchronized tremolo and vintage-style tuning machines provide original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability. Other features include vintage-style strap buttons, 5-way pickup switching and the traditional Strat® control layout. Includes deluxe gig bag.
