Fender Vintera '50s Stratocaster Modified Electric Guitar - Daphne Blue

Sale price$499.99


Our Take:

For those who've always wanted to play a Strat with a more updated feel, we recommend the Vintera series, which brings together vintage mojo and modern flair in one instrument. All the tried-and-true stylings of the '50s Stratocaster are here; however, a "Modern C"-shaped neck and medium-jumbo frets provide a more modern playing feel, and the addition of Fender's S-1 switch - allowing you to use either all of the pickups, or just the neck and bridge - provides huge output. All of this, tied together with vintage finish jobs, shows that an old dog really can learn new tricks. Shown here in Daphne Blue.

Fender's Take:

For players who appreciate the mojo of the past matched to contemporary features, we created the Vintera® ‘50s Stratocaster® Modified. Blending classic looks with a modern neck profile and fingerboard radius, hotter pickups and updated electronics, this guitar packs a surprising amount of power under the hood.

For modern Fender® tone we re-voiced the trio of single-coil Stratocaster pickups, kicking things up a bit by increasing the output. Crisp and articulate, they have the power you need for any style of music. The “Modern C”-shaped neck has a 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets, for modern playing feel. A contemporary, two-point synchronized tremolo with vintage-style bent-steel saddles offers rock-solid performance and tuning stability. The S-1™ switch adds the neck pickup in positions 1 and 2, unlocking even more tonal variety. Other features include vintage-style locking tuning machines, vintage-style strap buttons and chrome hardware. Includes a deluxe gig bag.
