Fender Classic Player 50s Strat 2 Colour Sunburst Maple Neck

Description

Fender first introduced the Strat in the 1950s and what an impact it made! Rock n Roll was born and Fender helped create a sound that changed popular music forever. Although there have been several design changes to the Strat over the years - most notably to the neck, the pick ups and the trem system - many guitar players still prefer the early designs. That's why Fender make a number of reissue models and the Classic Player 50's Strat is an excellent example.

Unlike the regular Classic 50's Strat, the Classic Player 50's Strat has had some design modifications done by the Fender Custom Shop Master Builders. They've replaced the standard 50's pickups with American Vintage Strat pickups, the skinny frets have been replaced with medium jumbo ones, and the trem system has a vintage look, but is more like the 2 point style trem used on the American Series Strats. Other features, like the V shape neck profile, are the same as the regular Classic 50's Strat.

Here's what Fender say about the Classic Player 50s Strat

Designed by Fender Custom Shop Master Builder Dennis Galuszka, the Classic Player '50s Stratocaster guitar features an alder body, maple neck with a 9.5" radius and 21 medium jumbo frets, '57/'62 vintage-style single-coil pickups (reverse wound/reverse polarity middle pickup), custom two-point vintage-style tremolo, five-way switch and custom pickup switching, and Gotoh vintage-style locking tuners.
