Few things in this world have gotten cooler with age than the Stratocaster® guitar. Born in the '50s, they 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 maple-fingerboard Road Worn® '50s Stratocaster delivers that aged look and feel - built to look, sound and feel like it has more than just a few miles on it. Designed with 1950s specs, including a nitrocellulose-lacquer finish, and supercharged with Tex-Mex™ pickups and 6105 frets.

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.
