Fender Classic ’50’s Stratocaster available now at High Street Music Preston. Home of Fender Guitars in Melbourne’s Northern Suburbs.

CLASSIC ’50S STRAT® STYLE

For guitarists who must have the instrument’s original-era tone, look and feel, the Classic Series ’50s Stratocaster epitomizes the guitar in the decade of its debut, with unmistakable early Strat® style and sparkling sound. With its authentic vintage-style features and finishes, everything about it takes you back to the time of diners, “Ike for President,” cars with fins, a wild new kind of music called rock ‘n’ roll and an upstart little Southern California company called Fender.

FEATURES

  • Maple neck with “soft V”-shaped profile and “small” headstock
  • 7.25”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets
  • Vintage-style single-coil Stratocaster pickups with staggered pole pieces
  • Modern five-way pickup switch
  • Aged control knobs and switch tip
  • Vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge
Vintage-Style Single-Coil Pickups
VINTAGE-STYLE SINGLE-COIL PICKUPS

This instrument features vintage-style single-coil pickups that expertly evoke the sound and style of classic Fender guitars from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s.

"Soft V" Neck Profile
“SOFT V” NECK PROFILE

The “soft V” neck profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) on this instrument has a distinctly comfortable fretting-hand feel that takes the more pronounced sharpness of a ’50s “V” profile and “softens” it into a somewhat more rounded shape. Ideal for players with larger hands whose thumb extends over the edge of the fingerboard.

Vintage-Style Six-Saddle Synchronized Tremolo Bridge
VINTAGE-STYLE SIX-SADDLE SYNCHRONIZED TREMOLO BRIDGE

With authentic design and performance that evokes the Stratocasters of the 1950s and ’60s, this model features a vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge with six saddles.
