Pocas cosas en este mundo mejoran más con la edad que una guitarra Stratocaster®. Nacidas en los 50, fueron mejorando tras años de uso (y abuso) en la carretera, transformándose para conseguir un aspecto atractivamente maltratado y desarrollando un tacto mejor incluso que cuando eran nuevas. La nueva Fender Road Worn ’50s Strat® con diapasón en arce presenta ese aspecto y sensación envejecida. Diseñada para tener la apariencia, el tacto y el sonido de un instrumento con mucho más que unos cuantos kilómetros. Se presenta con las especificaciones de 1950, incluyendo el acabado lacado en nitrocelulosa, pastillas Tex-Mex™ y trastes 6105

I LOVE this instrument! After drooling over Custom Shop guitars in person and on the I risked an online purchase. It payed off. Huge. These guitars are gems of Custom Shop design influence. Mike Eldred of the Fender CS talks tone woods and pairings in a set of YouTube videos. I recommend checking them out to catch some of the subtleties in how these instruments are made as well as where the 50's will differ in tone from the 60's.
I purchased a 50's road worn strat in black and was pained at the build quality. Disappointed because there was so much win with this guitar and they missed it on something major. Inspection after unboxing revealed poorly drilled pickguard holes causing the guard to bow near the bridge. I had to re-drill the backplate screw holes as well because it was so misaligned I couldn't change the strings. Also, the bridge pickup cut in and out and I had to re-heat the solder on the pickup itself. I chose to take these things on versus returning the instrument because I loved it. LOVED it!
I look forward to playing this guitar everyday because of how it sounds and feels. The nitro finish beats poly hands down. There is an openness to these guitars that you don't find in your American or Mexican standards. The TexMex pick-ups are articulate top to bottom and full of good tone. I was biased by some reviews I read that called for changing them out, but they are keepers.
This series drips of vintage essence. The vibe of this guitar outweighs the pre-playing set-up issues and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone seeking that little bit of magic.

I own a black 1996 American Made Fender Strat Plus with a rosewood fingerboard that I bought new 18 years ago for $900. This has been the only guitar that I have ever owned. I love it. However, I have always wanted a maple neck sunburst strat for a change of look and sound. I thought the American Standard 3 tone sunburst was the way I was going to go. That is what everyone ends up getting right? But it was $1500. Well, after years of contemplating and shopping around (18 to be exact) I came across the 50s Road Worn 2-tone sunburst Strat. It had everything I wanted: maple neck, sunburst (the 2-tone actually looks better than the 3-tone), completely different look, feel, and sound compared to the Strat Plus I already had. BUT this one had a distressed look that made it different and unique compared to the American Standard Strat that everyone else has. And it was nearly half the price of an American Standard Strat. I've played the Am Standard Strats many times. The 50s Road Worn feels amazingly better. Without question this is The One! Sure it is made in Mexico. Who really cares. This guitar feels and sounds better than the made in America $1500 American Standard Strat. And it looks better too. BUY IT. You will NOT be disappointed.

The back of the neck is even pre-worn with 10,000 grit sandpaper, so it feels like someone has played it before me, which is awesome, it makes the neck super fast, the pick-ups have that twangy banjo like quality that i want, and it'll even play a little bit of metal if i want it too, flawless instrument.

The look and feel is great. The wood is very resonant and the neck really pleasant to play. I found TexMex Pickups too sharp for my taste and I would appreciate a more accurate worn of the frets. BUT I LOVE IT.
