- Surprising tonal range from three special single-coil pickups
- Add extra tonal tenacity with S-1 switching
- Compound radius fretboard feels just right
You won't be surprised to see a trio of single-coil pickups on a Stratocaster, but the Vintage Hot Rod '60s Stratocaster has even more tonal range than you may expect. There's an American Vintage '59 Strat pickup at the neck position, a '65 Strat in the middle, and a sweet-sounding '56 Strat single-coil at the bridge. These pickups complement each other exceptionally well, bringing you everything from warm and fluid rhythm tones to bright, biting lead tone - and everything in between.Add extra tonal range with S-1 switching
The Vintage Hot Rod '60s Strat sports Fender's S-1 switch for extra tonal range. This switch lets you add the bridge pickup to the signal path to pickup positions 3, 4, and 5. This means that whenever you can add some extra bite to your tone in the rhythm positions and still retain warmth and fullness.
Compound radius fretboard feels just right
The Vintage Hot Rod '60s Strat features a 7.25"-12" compound radius fretboard for ultimate playability. The fingerboard is rounder near the nut for easy chord-grabbing and rhythm playing. As your playing heats up and moves up the fretboard, the radius flattens out for easier runs and big, big string bends without fretting out. With a neck that plays this slick, you'll be up at the highest frets before you know it.
