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.
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.
