Fender Classic Player 60s Stratocaster Electric Guitar
Although Fender’s Stratocaster first debuted in 1954, it truly came of age in the 60s when guitarists such as Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, and George Harrison used the instrument to craft innovative sounds that would resonate for decades later within the genre of rock music. Fender’s Classic Series aims to recapture both the feel and sound of some of its beloved axes, and they’ve definitely succeeded with their 60s Stratocaster model.
Vintage-style single-coil pickups nail the vintage Fender sound, and players can tweak their tone using a modern five-way pickup switch. The C-shaped maple neck on this thing is very comfortable, with a glossy polyurethane finish that will help you in gripping your axe whether firing off bluesy leads or hammering through chord shapes up and down the frets. A vintage-style synchronized tremolo allows you to dip and dive notes as you see fit, while vintage Fender-style tuners ensure your strings will stay in tune. And of course, the guitar sports a classic look with a polyester finish on top of the alder body. If you want to sound and look like a legend, this is the guitar for you.
