Fender Classic Series 50's Stratocaster Lacquer

Fender

AUTHENTIC ’50S STRAT® STYLE

For guitarists who must have the instrument’s original-era tone, look and feel, the Classic Series ’50s Stratocaster Lacquer epitomizes the guitar in the decade of its debut, with unmistakable early Strat® style and sparkling sound. With authentic vintage-style features including a nitrocellulose lacquer finish in classic Candy Apple Red, everything about it takes you back to the time of diners, “Ike for President,” cars with fins, a wild new kind of music called rock ‘n’ roll and an upstart little Southern California company called Fender.

FEATURES
  • Candy Apple Red nitrocellulose lacquer finish
  • Maple neck with “soft V”-shaped profile and “small” headstock
  • 7.25”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets
  • Vintage-style single-coil Stratocaster pickups with staggered pole pieces
  • Modern five-way pickup switch
  • Vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge
VINTAGE-STYLE SINGLE-COIL PICKUPS 

This instrument features vintage-style single-coil pickups that expertly evoke the sound and style of classic Fender guitars from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s.

NITROCELLULOSE LACQUER FINISH 

Nitrocellulose lacquer is one of the great original-era Fender electric guitar finishes, and is still used today on select instruments. Thin, porous and delicate, it’s a premium finish prized for sonic qualities that let body woods breathe with their true tonal character, and for an appearance that ages and wears in a distinctive way appealing to many players.

“SOFT V” NECK PROFILE 

The “soft V” neck profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) on this instrument has a distinctly comfortable fretting-hand feel that takes the more pronounced sharpness of a ’50s “V” profile and “softens” it into a somewhat more rounded shape. Ideal for players with larger hands whose thumb extends over the edge of the fingerboard.
