Designed to capture the feel of the earliest Fender solidbody guitars, the Fender Vintera '50s Stratocaster oozes the vibe of a classic Strat without the price tag. Staying true to the originals, the vintage-style frets, single-ply white pickguard, and maple neck give you the look and feel of a real '50s Strat. When you plug this one in, you'll hear Tim Shawâ€“designed '50s pickups that are mellow without too much bite. Trust us, we love these '50s pickups here at Leaseville, and we bet you will too. If you want a vintage-correct Strat at a price that won't force you to take out a second mortgage, the Fender Vintera '50s Stratocaster is the one for you.
The Fender Vintera '50s Stratocaster has the classic '50s soft V-shaped neck profile that feels incredible in your hand. This Strat's take on the "V" profile is softer and more similar to a U-profile neck. The 7.25"-radius maple fingerboard is complete with vintage-styled frets that feel incredible to play. This neck secures to the alder body with the traditional 4-bolt plate. This neck is such a complete re-creation of a classic Fender neck that it has a vintage-correct tint that makes it look amazing onstage or on your wall.
