VINTAGE STYLE FOR THE MODERN ERA
For players who appreciate the mojo of the past matched to contemporary features, we created the Vintera â€˜50s Stratocaster Modified. Blending classic looks with a modern neck profile and fingerboard radius, hotter pickups and updated electronics, this guitar packs a surprising amount of power under the hood.
For modern Fender tone we re-voiced the trio of single-coil Stratocaster pickups, kicking things up a bit by increasing the output. Crisp and articulate, they have the power you need for any style of music. The â€œModern Câ€-shaped neck has a 9.5â€-radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets, for modern playing feel. A contemporary, two-point synchronized tremolo with vintage-style bent-steel saddles offers rock-solid performance and tuning stability. The S-1â„¢ switch adds the neck pickup in positions 1 and 2, unlocking even more tonal variety. Other features include vintage-style locking tuning machines, vintage-style strap buttons and chrome hardware. Includes a deluxe gig bag.

A classic Fender tone wood, alderâ€™s sound is balanced with equal doses of lows, mids and highs.
â€œMODERN Câ€ NECK PROFILE
The â€œModern Câ€-shaped profile is designed for comfort and performance, while the smooth satin back finish makes it play even faster.
HOT â€˜50S STRATÂ® PICKUPS
We redesigned this guitarâ€™s pickups. Theyâ€™re packed with the bell-like, highly articulate tone that made Fender famousâ€”only hotter.
Comfortable for chording and single-note playing alike, the 9.5â€-radius fingerboard offers modern feel thanks to its medium-jumbo frets, while also making wide bends easier in the upper registers.
TWO-POINT SYNCHRONIZED TREMOLO
An updated design, this two-point tremolo offers proper intonation, full adjustability and easy access to cool vibrato sounds.
The S-1 switch adds the neck pickup to positions one and two, accessing previously unavailable tones, or the power of all three pickups cranking simultaneously.
