The Fender Road Worn 50s Stratocaster recreates the look and feel of a well-loved original.
Finished in nitrocellulose lacquer – prized for its natural tonal qualities and distinct aging patterns, then hand-distressed for an authentically broken-in look, this Strat delivers the bell-like tone and playing comfort you’d expect from a great vintage guitar.
For authentic, vintage-style tone we recreated the trio of single-coil Stratocaster pickups to sound more like the originals, using Formvar wire and individually beveled alnico 5 magnets. Crystalline and bell-like, they have the crisp, articulate tone that put Fender on the musical map. The updated Thick Soft “V”-shaped neck has a 7.25”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style, six-point synchronized tremolo and vintage-style tuning machines provide original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability. Other features of the Fender Road Worn 50s Stratocaster include vintage-style strap buttons, 5-way pickup switching and the traditional Strat control layout. Includes deluxe gig bag.
