PRESS RELEASE: Fender's Vintage Hot Rod '60s Stratocaster gives you the best Strat tone, style and performance of both eras - authentically vintage-style design touches straight from the 1960s and hot-rodded modern mods ideal for today's players.
Premium features include an alder body; maple neck with mid-'60s "C"-shaped profile, vintage-style heel-end truss rod adjustment, and satin back finish; and a compound-radius (7.25”-12”) rosewood fingerboard with 21 6105 frets, oversize white pearloid dot inlays and a bone nut.
Singing tone comes from American Vintage single-coil ’59 Stratocaster (neck), ’65 gray-bottom Stratocaster (middle) and single-coil ’56 Stratocaster (bridge) pickups. In addition to five-way blade pickup switching, an S-1™ switch adds the bridge pickup to pickup switch positions 3, 4 and 5.
