This Fender® Road Worn '50s Stratocaster in 2-Tone Sunburst features modern components in a vintage looking and sounding guitar.
Those who prize older instruments with the battered look of years on the road and the scars of countless gigs can still have that authentically aged vibe without spending decades on the road themselves. The irresistibly cool look of finish worn through to the wood, rusted hardware, a bruised neck and yellowing plastic parts are yours right away with Road Worn instruments.The Road Worn '50s Stratocaster sounds, looks and feels like it's been there and back, has more than a few miles on it, and then some. With authentic 1950s styling aged to impart a lifetime of wear and tear that has somehow made it get even better, it's a must-have for the Strat player who appreciates broken-in look and vibe.
It has a lightweight Alder body finished in nitrocellulose lacquer finish just like a vintage strat!
The Tex-Mex single-coil pickups on this guitar are over-wound for tight, clear bass, sparkling high end and maximum output ideal for everything from soaring clean tone to earthy Texas grit. They have a bit of a kick that will give you a killer blues/rock tone while still retaining the classic vintage Fender bell like chime. The bridge pickup is beefy with a nice mid range bite. The neck pickup is clear and defined. The 2 and 4 positions have plenty of quack without being overwhelming.
The soft V shape neck profile is comfortable with a little bit of meat to it. This instrument has a 7.25" fingerboard radius, with a more pronounced "vintage-style" curvature typical of Fender guitars from the 1950s, ’60 and ’70s. It’s the way to go for those who grew up with vintage instruments or simply prefer the feel of greater fingerboard curvature.
The road worn wear looks authentic completing the vintage strat look and vibe. Fender keeps building guitars for player's. 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.
