This guitar is put together. From its 7.25"-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets and black-dot inlays to its trio of vintage-style single-coil pickups with staggered alnico pole pieces, this puppy oozes '50s vibe. It even comes with a classic Tweed case. But don't think this Strat is stuck in the past.

This Fender Classic Series '50s Stratocaster wears a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes (standard back in the day) are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to breathe. Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful; they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities. This guitar has the look (and feel) of a well-aged classic.
