During the 1960s, rock music truly came into its own when musicians re-wrote the book on electric guitar by conjuring fantastic sounds and styles never before imagined. Leading the sonic charge during that exciting decade was the Stratocaster® guitar, which became not only an even more versatile musical tool, but also a true cultural symbol.
The Classic Series '60s Stratocaster Lacquer evokes that golden chapter in Fender history with an authentic nitrocellulose lacquer finish on its sleek alder body. Other features include a "C"-shaped maple neck, 7.25"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets and vintage-style ivory-dot inlays, three vintage-style single-coil pickups with five-way switching, multi-ply pickguard, aged control knobs and switch tip, vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge and vintage-style tuners. Tweed case included.

I checked this one out in the local music store and this guitar is just amazing, the feel, the look, the sound, the touch! I'd buy it without a second thought - if it weren't for the colour. A wider range of colours would make this guitar a keeper for decades to come! So, I've got high hopes for the upcoming music fairs. Please, please Fender, do us a favour!
the most beautiful guitar i've ever seen!!
i mean look at that colour! if i had enough money, this would be the kind of guitar i'd buy.
ROCK ON '60S STRATOCASTER LACQUER!!
I have played 4 or 5 of these and they are spectacular.
I would have purchased one instantly if it was a different color.
Very tired of sunburst. Olympic white? Dakota? Fiesta?
C'mon Fender.. Make my day!

I just bought this beauty and I feel more than happy because I'm a vintage guitar lover!
This comes in a beautiful tweed case which is one more thing that I like.
Everything is perfect with this guitar and the finish looks great!
The aged white plastics and the vintage tuners add more of that 60's vibe.
I also like the 7.25" radius and the thick C-shaped neck,both of which are vintage correct.
The only downside is the pickups that sound weak and are noisy in all 5 positions,
so I'll buy new pups as soon as possible.
All in all if you want to buy a vintage guitar and you have a tight budget, I'm sure this one won't let you down!

Just bought this one.
I already love it: beautiful, no defaults, sounds... well it sounds like it has to sound, like a good Fender stratocaster does since 195...
So clearly I don't see any more reason to get it!
Muchas gracias Mexico para el precio, always noticeable here in Europe.
