What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Semi-V-shaped neck profile Slightly wider shape for better grip and control
Vintage-style single-coil Strat pickups Present midrange and clear highs
Synchronized tremolo Fully adjustable vintage vibrato tailpiece
Vintage Original Spec aged finish Replicates the look of a gracefully aged guitar
Take a slice of out electric guitar history with the Classic '50s Stratocaster. Inspired by the Strats that started it all, this Fender strikes a cool vintage vibe to compliments its classic tone. Early Strats were embraced by a huge range of players from legendary country stars to rock n' roll pioneers like Buddy Holly. The Classic '50s Strat packs the same diverse sound and superb style to complement any player and genre of music.

Old-School Electronics

The Classic '50s Strat features a triple set of vintage-style single-coil pickups with staggered alnico pole pieces. Modeled on the electronics found on plenty of early Strat museum pieces, these pickups deliver all the hallmark brightness and clarity that defined that Fender sound. Navigate between the five different pickup positions to find the exact tone for any style or scenario. These old-school pickups are so accurate that the covers have even been aged to give the authentic look of an over sixty-year-old guitar.

Legendary Strat Playability

As you expect from a Stratocaster, the smooth action and comfortable feel of the Classic '50s Strat invites all types of playing, from sizzling solos to steady chord progressions. A single-piece maple fretboard with a soft V profile fits comfortably in any hand, while a maple fretboard with a 7.25-inch radius allows for easy gliding up and down the length of the guitar. For even broader tonal expression, a vintage style synchronized tremolo arm enables you to accentuate your licks and infuse your sound with surfy tremolo flavor.

Features:

- Classic Stratocaster with tons of old school appeal
- Three vintage-style single-coil pickups with staggered, alnico magnet pole pieces
- Five way pickup selector to dial in a huge range of tones
- Sleek chrome hardware with Fender ping tuning machines
- Aged knobs and switch tip to add to vintage character
- Comfortable soft V neck profile with maple fingerboard
- Classic synchronized tremolo arm
- Included padded gig bag

"My Favorite Strat"
Overall: I agreed to consider a trade for a Classic 50s Surf Green Strat, even though I thought that I wouldn't like the color. However, when I saw the guitar I thought it was one of the best looking guitars that I had seen. The only thing that I plan to change on it is the pickguard. The solid white pickguard just doesn't match the beauty of the guitar. I have another MIM strat and a USA made Hwy1 (upgrade)strat and this one is my favorite. It looks great, sounds great, and plays great.
Style of Music: Contemporary Christian, Blues, Rock, Jazz

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
