    USA pickups and limited edition colour

    This particular Strat is extra special. It's equipped with a trio of USA-made American Vintage '59 pickups for a rocking authentic vintage tone. You'll also stand out from the crowd thanks to a classy rare Daphne Blue finish.

    Construction

    We all want our Fender to age like a real vintage instrument. In the case of the Road Worn Strat, it will! It's coated in a nitrocellulose lacquer, allowing the paint to wear in beautifully over years of playing.

    The Road Worn harks back to early Fender design, boasting a curved 7.25-inch radius fretboard and mid-'60s "C" shape neck, perfect for big bends and a thumb-over-fingerboard technique. The pau ferro fretboard and maple neck combination feels great with vintage tall frets under your fingers.

    Sound

    This is where the Limited Edition Road Worn comes into its own. The '60s Strat is packing a trio of low wound American Vintage '59 single coil pickups, which you'll also find on Fender Custom Shop guitars. Yep, they sound that good. The '59s produce a bell-like top end, rich in harmonics and with a lively bass. The alnico V magnets have a great effect on the focus, creating a slicing attack in the bridge position and a classic throaty lead tone in the neck.

    At first I wasn't sure about the guitar. The relic finish seemed a bit gimmicky but when put into context it makes sense. It's not like a custom shop finish but didn't cost custom shop money. It gives you a good starting point - I'm not worried about future dings and blemishes and the satin nitro finish should wear beautifully. For £999 it's s bargain. The neck feels 'just right' - nice profile, smooth worn finish and the 7.25 radius fingerboard is no problem to me - I actually prefer it to my American Strat and Tele which both have 9.5 radius. The pau ferro feels fine but doesn't look as good as rosewood but some Montypresso treatment will sort that out. The vintage type frets are great. The guitar is certainly not heavy, but not as light as a real vintage guitar. However it does play and feel like a vintage guitar. My only criticism here is that the nut hasn't been cut right for the 9 gauge strings it was shipped with - the b and high e sound a bit sitar- y. Once restrung with preferred 10's should sort this out. The sound? Wow! These 59 pickups sound fantastic, really open and articluate. All positions sound great. The electronics, pots, jack and switch all work and feel great - again better than my American strat and tele. I'd 'gone off' playing Strats. Not any more! If there's any left you need to bag one before they're all gone.

    And the guitar, I love it! Took some minor fret polish and setup for my liking, but now it plays as well as it sounds - fantastic. It truly has that vintage, unmistakable strat tone - glassy, bright but full.

    This guitar is mellow gold. I can’t believe the price was “only” 999. Yes, the customs killed me, but still, it’s a great bargain. The sheer looks of this guitar just scream “take me on”. I can’t put it away. And the sounds is simple, classic, vintage. Road worn looks is an more than icing on the cake. It’s just perfect, even though it’s not the 10 grand custom-shop-unique-textured-thingy. Sometimes less is truly more!
