Fender Vintera® '50s Stratocaster®
For players who want the style and sound of Fender’s golden era, we created the Vintera® ‘50s Stratocaster®. Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decade—including period-accurate neck profile and hardware, along with re-voiced pickups—this guitar has all of the chime and articulation that made the Stratocaster a legend.
For authentic, vintage-style tone we recreated the trio of single-coil Stratocaster pickups to sound more like the originals. Crystalline and bell-like, they have the crisp, articulate tone that put Fender on the musical map. The updated “Soft V”-shaped neck has a 7.25”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style, six-point synchronized tremolo and vintage-style tuning machines provide original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability. Other features include vintage-style strap buttons, 5-way pickup switching and the traditional Strat® control layout. Includes deluxe gig bag.
One of the biggest factors at play on the retro Vintera design is its soft V shape neck. It fills the fretting hand aplenty, whilst guaranteeing smooth transition up and down the matching maple neck and fretboard.
At a 7.25” radius, the fingerboard is narrow and easy to perform techniques like a wrap around thumb on the low string. It’s topped with 21 classic thin, tall frets to complete the genuine playing experience.
This Vintera makes use of a trio of low output '50s single coil pickups. You've heard that snappy, bell-like tone a million times before, but this is a real opportunity to get it for yourself. It's the ideal chimey sound for classic genres such as blues, pop and rock. There’s plenty of room to manoeuvre using the five position switch.
You know you've got your hands on a classic guitar when the hardware feels this authentic. Everything from the tuners, to the six-saddle tremolo bridge and four screw bolt-on neck is vintage replica. As with all Fender guitars, the hardware is highly reliable and can take on years of playing having been made in their high-tech Mexico factory.
