Fender Road Worn '50s Strat Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • The look and feel of a well-loved instrument
  • Classic-sounding pickups with a kick

The look and feel of a well-loved instrument
Few things in this world have gotten cooler with age than the Stratocaster guitar. Born in the '50s, Strats became even cooler after years of use (and abuse) on the road - morphing over time to look appealingly battered and feel even better than when they were brand-new. Fender's new maple fretboard Road Worn '50s Strat delivers that aged look and feel. It's built to look, sound, and feel like it's got more than just a few miles on it! This Stratocaster is designed with 1950s specs, including a nitrocellulose lacquer finish. And this guitar backs up those authentic looks with great playing feel and the kind of tonality you'd expect from a pick-of-the-litter vintage instrument.

Classic-sounding pickups with a kick
Designed to give you the kind of clear, transparent highs you want from a Stratocaster while adding increased output and warmth, Fender's Tex-Mex single-coil pickups add a little kick to your tone when you need it. These classic-looking pickups use Alnico V magnets and work just like standard Strat pickups. They provide the perfect complement to this great guitar!

Why the strat made history

I have owned just about every strat out there. Deluxe , plus , you name it! To be honest I didn't think much of it when I first saw it. I thought "give me a break!" That was until I grabbed it off the wall. The v neck and sound it gave off rang throughout the guitar. This is the original design that made history.I couldn't pass it up.Finally found the magic tone from yesteryears.I don't care if it looks old, this thing has the magic. Thank you mexico!

Great guitar after a pro set up

Guitar is great. Setup from Sweetwater was horrible. Had to spend $70 with a tech and now everything is right on the world. Not sure about this whole inspection business as I can't imagine them not seeing that the bridge was pinned a the way back.
Music background: Fun

Jury is still out

So far, I have spent a good portion of two evenings trying to get this guitar setup. The factory claims it was setup to factory specs. The Trem was so far out of wack it was hard to believe it passed inspection. The guitar certainly looks great if that is all you are planning to do with it.
