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.Maple neck with rosewood fingerboard delivers buttery playability
Leo Fender was a radio technician not a luthier, so goes the "excuse" for why his first round of guitars sported maple necks without separate fingerboards. At the beginning of the tumultuous '60s, Fender started offering rosewood fingerboards on its instruments. Much has been said about the relative sonic merits of maple vs. rosewood. Although rosewood-capped necks are undeniably warmer sounding, Mr. Fender's reasoning, according to legend, behind the move to rosewood was simply that he didn't like the visible wear on the maple. Players of all genres immediately lined up on both sides of the debate, which rages on. If you're a rosewood fan, the Fender Classic Series '60s Stratocaster Lacquer, with its maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, is for you.This axe has the right stuff at the right price
