2019 saw Fender launch the Vintera line of guitars and basses, a high-end Mexican built series of instruments that gave us the choice of both traditional and modified options.
In today's blog we are taking a look at the 60's Stratocaster. This guitar is for players who want the style and sound of Fender’s golden era. Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decade—including period-accurate neck profile and playing feel, along with re-voiced pickups—this guitar has all of the chime and articulation that made the Stratocaster a legend.
For authentic, vintage-style tone Fender 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 map. The “Mid 60s C”-shaped neck has a 7.25”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style, six-point synchronized tremolo and vintage-style tuning machines offer original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability. Other features include vintage-style strap buttons, chrome hardware and four-bolt neck plate.
Here is our video below going through the specs and tones on offer.
