Fender 60th Anniversary Classic Player '50s Stratocaster - Desert Sand Reviews

4.5 stars based on 3 customer reviews

    5/5 Stars!

    After ordering this, the next few days went slow as possible. Thankfully FedEx delivered the guitar a day early with the free shipping!

    First off, the finish on this thing blows you away as soon as you open the case. My favorite part is the gold aluminum pickgaurd, looks awesome on the limited desert sand finish. The gold hardware really tops off the looks if you ask me, some people don't like it, I love it.

    After playing it for the first time it was obvious to me that some adjustments needed to be made in terms of the guitars setup/action. Little bit of string buzz out of the box but nothing crazy. The only annoying part is that because this is a vintage style, your only (logical) access to the truss rod is by removing the neck. I guess that's to be expected when ordering a vintage style instrument so just be aware.

    Otherwise, guitar plays awesome and has really nice sound! Don't get scared away by the fact that it's a mim start, this is definitely a quality instrument.

    Love This Strat

    It not only looks beautiful it has that sound only Fender can give. I gave the neck a little tweak and man does it play as good as it looks. Sweetwater made my purchase so easy. Real nice people to do business with and a special Thanks to Katy I

    Bravo! Nice Guitar!

    When I ordered this guitar, I worried that it might just be an overpriced MIM Strat. But this is not your usual MIM Strat. It is physically beautiful to behold, and comes in a very nice case. This is very much like the guitar I saw in a Pawn Shop in the late 60s, but didn't have the $75 to buy. After all those haunting years, now I own it!

    But that's just the start. It played great out of the box. The V neck is wonderful. Very nice vintage Strat tones. I did break a string within minutes of playing, but Fender cannot be blamed for my vicious, violent playing style.

    It appears this guitar is suited to all styles, except possibly, Metal.

    As always, Sweetwater is the only Music company I trust 100%. Shipping was fast, and the guitar was set up impeccably. Thank you Fender and Sweetwater.
