The Fender Vintera '60s Stratocaster Modified will give you the vintage tones you're looking for coupled with the feel and playability of a modern Strat. This guitar features a contoured alder body, comfy C-shaped maple neck, and pau ferro fingerboard. You'll love the Tim Shaw Hot '65 pickups that are a higher-output take on the classic '60s Strat pickups. Where this one breaks from tradition is the modern 9.5" fretboard radius, medium jumbo frets, upgraded tremolo bridge, and S-1 switching. Even die-hard vintage Strat purists at Leaseville love the S-1 switch that adds the neck pickup to positions 1 and 2. The Fender Vintera '60s Stratocaster Modified is the perfect blend of classic styling and contemporary playing improvements.
For the '60s Stratocaster Modified, Tim Shaw has created his take on the Stratocaster pickups from the 1960s. His Hot '65 pickups feature period-correct plain enamel wire and staggered Alnico 5 pole pieces. You'll love the very slight bite that these pickups add to the traditional spanky Stratocaster sound. The higher output sounds great whether you're playing clean or dirty.
