From Our Research Team:
Custom Shop Quality at an Affordable PriceFender's Classic Player Series instruments, including the Classic Player '50s Strat®, the Classic Player '60s Strat® and the Classic Player Baja Telecaster® guitars, are the result of a collaboration between Fender's world renown Master Builders, and the company's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico, offering Custom Shop features at a modest price. With decades of combined guitar building experience, FENDER® Custom Shop Master Builders Dennis Galuzka, Gregory Fessler and Chris Fleming were tasked with creating their own "dream list" of specifications for these new Classic Series instruments. No ideas would be off limits, and no feature would be excluded in creating these customized and affordable guitars. What they came up with were features such as the '69 pickups, custom 2-point vintage bridge and 12" fingerboard radius on Gregory Fessler's Classic Player '60s Strat®.
Fender Classic Player '60s Stratocaster® At-a-Glance
Classic Strat Design
Though the original Stratocaster was first introduced more than 50 years ago, it's more popular now than ever. The Classic Player Series instruments take the best of the Stratocaster of the '60s and merges it with Custom Shop touches. The sleek, select alder body is covered with a classy 3-color sunburst and a jewel-like polyester finish. Each Classic Player '60s Strat features a special matching pickguard. In this case, the 3-color Sunburst finish is beautifully complemented with a 3-ply mint green pickguard along with special aged plastic parts. Special features include '69 pickups, "Custom Shop Designed" neckplate, custom two-point vintage bridge (never before offered outside the Custom Shop) and a 12" fingerboard radius.
Trademark Strat Sound
The original Strat had three single coil pickups, but the Classic Player '60s Strat utilizes 3 Custom '69 single-soil pickups so you get instant access to all those classic, glossy Strat tones with a simple flick of the five-position blade switch. The Classic Player '60s Strat also incorporates a unique wiring scheme, with the Number Four Position enabling a neck and middle pickup configuration.

Fast Playing "C" Maple Neck
Leo Fender wasn't afraid to "think outside the box" when it came to guitar designs - after all, he was an engineer, not a guitar player. In the 1950s and well into the 1970s, the blond natural maple neck became almost synonymous with Fender guitars. This Classic Player '60s Stratocaster has a one-piece maple neck and rosewood fingerboard with a "C"-shape and 12" radius. The final touch is in the gloss polyurethane finish that makes this one of the fastest playing Strats on the planet!

by Andrew Marinzel from Glenshaw, PAPickups sounds great and very "Straty." Guitar plays smooth and fast. No problem at all with Frets. It's quite possibly my favorite one (Coming from someone who owns a Kenny Wayne and a Clapton Str... read more [+]at as well). The color is beautiful and everything about it looks fantastic. I'd put this up against any Strat, especially for the price. If you're thinking about it go for it! close [-]
