'50s Style and Tone with Modern Stability!

Any classic guitar collector can tell you that picking up a real vintage Strat is a mixed bag experience. On the one hand, you get that satisfying original Strat sound, but Fender's build quality and playability has come a long way since the '50s. This 60th Anniversary Classic Player '50s Stratocaster strikes an amazing compromise between timeless Strat tone and feel and modern playability. A classic alder body with a soft-V-shaped maple neck and a set of American Vintage Stratocaster pickups transport you to Fender's golden days. At the same time, you'll love the extreme stability and smooth action the 60th Anniversary Classic Player '50s Stratocaster's vintage-style 2-point synchronized tremolo and locking tuners have to offer.
