VINTAGE STYLE FOR THE MODERN ERA
For players who want the style and sound of Fenderâ€™s golden era, we created the Vintera â€˜50s Stratocaster. Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decadeâ€”including period-accurate neck profile and hardware, along with re-voiced pickupsâ€”this guitar has all of the chime and articulation that made the Stratocaster a legend.
For authentic, vintage-style tone we recreated the trio of single-coil Stratocaster pickups to sound more like the originals. Crystalline and bell-like, they have the crisp, articulate tone that put Fender on the musical map. The updated â€œSoft Vâ€-shaped neck has a 7.25â€-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style, six-point synchronized tremolo and vintage-style tuning machines provide original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability. Other features include vintage-style strap buttons, 5-way pickup switching and the traditional StratÂ® control layout. Includes deluxe gig bag.

ALDER OR ASH BODY
Alderâ€™s tone is balanced with equal doses of lows, mids and highs; ash features a beautiful grain, along with chiming highs, well-defined midrange and strong low end. Both are classic Fender tone woods.
â€œSOFT Vâ€ NECK PROFILE
Based on a â€œLate 50s Vâ€ profile thatâ€™s been slightly rounded, the “Soft V” neck profile has a distinctly comfortable fretting-hand feel.
REVOICED 50S STRAT PICKUPS
We revoiced the pickups to be more â€˜50s-accurate. Theyâ€™re full of the bell-like, crystalline tone that made Fender instruments famous.
Hosting 21 vintage-style frets, the 7.25â€-radius fingerboard provides the comfortable playing feel of a vintage instrument.
VINTAGE-STYLE SYNCHRONIZED TREMOLO
One of our most innovative designs, this six-point tremolo offers proper intonation, full adjustability and easy access to cool vibrato sounds.

These tuning machines offer the look and feel of vintage machines, with the added benefit of enhanced tuning stability.
