‘60s Fender Strats are iconic, highly sought-after instruments. The Vintera range replicates those old school fittings, finishes and specs with modern construction techniques. This is the perfect homage to the golden era of guitars.
The Modified Vintera is a souped-up version of the standard model, incorporating newer features to bring it in line with contemporary Fenders. It’s an excellent choice for players who like the look of a vintage guitar but desire modern playability.
Out goes the fat neck shape and in comes the modern C. This is an ideal balance between slim profile and asymmetric curvature. You’ll feel comfortable playing anywhere across the maple neck, be it rhythm or solo parts. At a 9.5” radius, the pau ferro fingerboard is slightly wider than normal and easy to perform any playing technique. It’s topped with 21 medium jumbo frets to round off the sleek playing experience.
Fender have installed a trio of vintage hot '60s single coil pickups on this Vintera. They sound crystalline and articulate, with a considerable amount of grit and ability to handle higher gain. Ideal for a breadth of genres such as blues, pop and rock. There’s plenty of room to manoeuvre using the five position switch.
You know you have your hands on a classic guitar when the hardware feels this authentic. The modded model is equipped with a two-point synchronised tremolo allowing for an extremely smooth action. As with all Fender guitars, the hardware is highly reliable and can take on years of playing having been made in their high-tech Mexico factory.
