For most players, a Vintage or even a Custom Shop Stratocaster is out of their price range. Well, Fender now has you covered with this Fender® American Original '50s Stratocaster® in Aztec Gold.
Lightweight Alder body with a Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish, Pure Vintage 59 pickups, Maple neck with a Soft V profile and a 9.5" radius are features you would find on a guitar twice this price.
The Fender Pure Vintage 59 pickups are a period-correct as possible. A breathtaking vintage tone that is sparkling, clear and vibrant. The bridge pickup has a very slight bite to it with highs that are not too spiky. The neck pickup is magnificent. Nice and full with round highs and warm lows. The 2 and 4 positions have a milder quack with a nice mid-range sweet spot.
The thick “Soft V”-shaped neck slightly smooths the sharpness of a “V” profile, rounding it out so it’s more comfortable for rhythm and leads playing. The more modern 9.5" radius and vintage tall frets mean no more fretting out when bending.
Vintage tones, modern features, and a classic look make this a must-have for any Strat lover.
