The Fender Stratocaster is the world's most popular guitar design, known for its ergonomic body shape and triple-threat of vibrant single-coil pickups. The Fender Vintera '70s Strat keeps many classic features intact that are true to the original models; sure to satisfy traditionalists that seek nostalgic tones and a vintage feel.

Fender Vintera Stratocasters - All The Models in One Review!

Timeless Fender Construction

Fender has relied on a favoured tonewood combination for the Vintera '70s Strat. Comprised of an Ash body, this rich-sounding and lightweight material keeps things balanced across the frequency spectrum; the perfect tonal foundation for the pokey pickups. This particular model also has a stunning translucent finish that highlights the gorgeous wood grain.

The Ash body is joined with a bolt-on Maple neck, bringing out some crisp top-end snap. Giving notes plenty of immediacy, this guitar offers a very responsive feel. Fender's time-honoured early '70s "C” profile has a comfortable feel; slim enough for contemporary players yet thick enough to keep the traditionalists happy. Vintage frets also contribute to the nostalgic feel, as well as the period-accurate 7.25" fingerboard radius.

'70s Single-Coils

The Vintera '70s Strat achieves its authentic sounds from its vintage-voiced '70s single-coils. With a vibrant, articulate and chimey character; these medium-output pickups excel with clean amp settings, especially if you use positions 2 and 4 on the pickup selector switch for those classic out-of-phase tones. They're not one-trick ponies though, as these single-coils sound bright and focused with overdrive and distortion too.

Vintage Hardware

For spicing up chords and licks with some tasteful vibrato, the Fender Vintera '70s Strat is equipped with a classic 6-screw synchronised tremolo. The vintage-style tuning machines also provide original-era aesthetics, while their bulletproof design ensures rock-solid performance and exceptional tuning stability.

For keeping the Vintera '70s Strat safe on the road, the included Fender Deluxe Gig Bag's rugged design will provide great protection.
