This Brand New Fender Vintera Road Worn 60s Stratocaster in Lake Placid Blue weighs 7 lbs 8 oz. Want a real Fender Relic but not with the price tag? The Road Worn Series from Fender is the answer! Finished in nitrocellulose and then aged, just like the Custom Shop Guitars, the Vintera Road Worn Series offers incredible features for the money!
We really don't understand how a guitar like this can be made at such a price point. We start with a Vintera Series guitar, which are some of the finest to ever have been produced in the Ensenada Mexico Factory. Then they finish them in Nitrocellulose lacquer instead of Polyurethane. THEN they age the finishes and necks so that that a "Relic" is available at just about 20% of a Custom Shop version!
The neck is made from Maple and shaped to a Mid 60s C profile. The fingerboard is made from Pau Ferro and carries a 7.25" fingerboard radius for a truly authentic vintage playing experience. 21 Vintage Tall Frets provide enough height to keep your fingers off the board. 25.5" scale length and 1.650" nut width provide a classic feeling Fender.
Electronics-wise, we have a set of Vintage Style 60s Single Coil Hot pickups installed. These pickups are steeped in Fender's tonal history but beefed up with extra output to cover more genres. A master volume, 2 tone controls, and a 5-way pickup selector switch cover the details.
Fender keeps building guitars for players. With their eye on offering tons of features for not a whole lot of money, you can easily find the right Fender for whatever your needs may be. Stop by the shop today and see what's new from Fender, all the way from Squier to Fender Custom Shop!
