The Fender Stratocaster is the world's most popular guitar, known for its ergonomic body shape and trio of vibrant-sounding single-coil pickups. This Vintera '70s Strat keeps many coveted features intact that are true to the models which defined the decade; sure to satisfy traditionalists who seek vintage tones and a classic feel.
Limited Edition '70s Strat
Fitted with a set of Custom Shop '69 single-coil pickups, this limited edition Fender Vintera '70s Strat has a spellbinding voice that'll outshine frankly any other guitar of a similar price. A hardtail bridge is another feature unique to original '70s Strats — a rare appointment that this special edition Fender Strat pays homage to.
Timeless Fender Construction
Fender has relied on a favoured tonewood combination for the Vintera '70s Strat. Boasting an Alder body, this medium-weight material keeps things balanced across the frequency spectrum; the perfect tonal foundation for the pokey pickups. The Alder body is joined with a bolt-on Maple neck, bringing out some bright top-end snap that gives the instrument a very responsive and immediate feel.
Early '70s "C" Neck Profile
A time-honoured early '70s "C” profile provides a comfortable feel; slim enough for contemporary players yet thick enough to keep the old-school aficionados happy. Vintage frets also contribute to the nostalgic feel, as well as the period-accurate 7.25" fingerboard radius.
Custom Shop '69 Pickups
For authentic Fender tone, this limited edition '70s Vintera Stratocaster sports three Custom Shop ‘69 single-coils — wired in the USA. Crystalline and bell-like, these pickups emit the crisp, articulate sounds that put Fender on the map!
Original hardtail '70s Strats are highly sought-after, and Fender has paid tribute to these rare instruments with its limited edition Vintera '70s Strat. Said to achieve greater sustain and deeper lows, a hardtail bridge is preferred by players who forgo tremolos in favour of a more solid feel and a richer sound.
Vintage "F"-Stamped Tuners
The period-correct "F"-stamped machine heads offer vintage-era aesthetics, while their bulletproof design ensures stellar performance and exceptional tuning stability.
