Fender Classic 50s Stratocaster
We can't think of any other product that symbolises Rock n Roll like a 1950's Fender Strat. Now over 50 years old, the original design is still much loved & authentic 50's Strats change hands for a small fortune. Due to this interest Fender have created the Classic 50's Stratocaster, a guitar that looks and feels like much like a vintage Strat, but is built using modern manufacturing techniques, which improves consistency and dramatically reduces the price! The Classic 50s Strats are available in a range of authentic vintage finishes & come equipped with Fender Vintage Style single coil pickups, as well as the soft V neck profile that the 50's Strats all used.
Here's what Fender say about the Classic 50s Strat
This guitar epitomizes the vibe of the 50s! The color selection alone, Surf Green, Daphne Blue and Dakota Red, takes you back to the era of diners, Ike and cars with fins. With a maple fingerboard, tinted neck, single-ply pickguard and aged plastic parts, the 50s Stratocaster guitar is awesomely retro, and the three single-coil pickups and staggered Alnico magnet pole pieces give you the look and the sound.
