More about Vintage Hot Rod '50s Stratocaster®

Fender’s Vintage Hot Rod ’50s Stratocaster® guitar gives you the best Strat tone, style and performance of both eras—authentically vintage-style design touches straight from the 1950s and hot-rodded modern mods ideal for today’s players.

Premium features include an ash body; maple neck with “D”-shaped profile, vintage-style heel-end truss rod adjustment, and satin back finish; and a compound-radius (7.25”-12”) maple fingerboard with 21 6105 frets, bone nut and gloss finish. Singing tone comes from an American Vintage single-coil ’59 Stratocaster neck pickup and single-coil ’56 Stratocaster middle pickup, and a Texas Special™ single-coil Stratocaster bridge pickup. In addition to five-way blade pickup switching, an S-1™ switch adds the bridge pickup to pickup switch positions 3, 4 and 5.

Other features include a single-ply white pickguard, three aged white control knobs (master volume, tone 1, tone 2), two-point synchronized tremolo with vintage-style stamped steel saddles (chrome cover included), vintage-style locking tuners and locking strap buttons. Includes upgraded deluxe vintage-style tweed case, vintage-style 8’ cable, vintage-style black strap, extra tremolo springs and wrenches.

Rock Solid

(3.0)
jansixman on March 5, 2014 (updated March 16, 2014)

Another rock solid example of Fender quality that you can closely re-create for realistically 1/4 to 1/3 the cost and would easily fool most so called tone experts. Remember the most important rule here: a good quality amp and decent pickups make up the majority of custom shop quality. Ask any rock star .
