Fender Vintage Hot Rod '57 Stratocaster® at a Glance:
A brand-new old friend
Classic vintage styling and a thin nitrocellulose laquer finish mingle with modern pickups and a slimmed, softened "V"-style neck and medium jumbo frets on the Vintage Hot Rod '57 Strat. The result is a guitar with a vintage feel and modern tonal capabilities, giving it a broken-in vibe and adding functionality to a classic instrument. If you ever pined for the feeling you can only get from playing a great-sounding, lived-in axe but want a new instrument, here it is!
A classic vehicle with some real horsepower
Yes, it's got a classy, vintage appeal. But look a little closer at that bridge pickup. They put a DiMarzio Tone Zone in there! , From sparkling to scorching, you'll get whatever your tonal palette desires with this pickup selection, which also includes Parallel SCN (Neck) and SCN (Mid) units.
The Vintage Hot Rod '57 Strat's one-piece maple neck has that comfortable broken-in feeling, thanks to its slimmed and softened "V" shape. A flatter fingerboard radius and medium jumbo frets also contribute to the easy playability of this instrument, which also comes with a vintage tweed case.

Fender Tone and flexibility
by Alex from San Diego, CAI purchased this guitar just before fender bumped their prices in 2008 or 09 i can't remember. But i purchased it used and look LIKE NEW! Amazing flexible tone. I use the neck and middle pick up with ... read more [+]TONE 1 & 2 at about four or 6. Great action and beautiful finish on body and neck. But when you want to get loud and rock hard, the DiMarzio Humbuck pick up does just that! All you need to do to mix your tone is rolling back on those tone knobs and changing pick ups. Tone and Flexibility is what you get when you purchased this Fender Strat! close [-]
