Authentic Vintage Vibe With Distressed Finish and Aged Parts

The handwound '54 single-coil pickups are wound to period-correct specs for authentic vintage Strat tone. From glassy cleans to snarling overdrive, this guitar delivers the full range of iconic Fender tones that have shaped countless hit records.

Smooth Playability With Quartersawn Maple Neck

The quartersawn maple neck offers stability and a smooth, comfortable feel during long playing sessions. Its vintage-style frets and bone nut also enhance playability. The C-shaped profile is ideal for chording and soloing across the fingerboard. Combined with the contoured ash body, this Stratocaster plays like a dream whether you're on stage or in the studio.

Vintage-Style Synchronized Tremolo Bridge

The vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge allows you to add expressive embellishments to your playing. The six-saddle bridge has bent steel saddles for excellent tone transfer and tuning stability. From subtle shimmers to dive bombs, the tremolo lets you incorporate vintage Stratocaster techniques into your music.
