        Comments about Fender 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        This is one of the sleekest and best playing/sounding Strats I've used in a long time. The shallower fingerboard makes bending on the medium jumbo frets a dream, and these pickups deliver all the spank and chime of the most classic Strat sounds. I would put this up against Custom Shop models in terms of build quality and certainly tone. I love it! I'm a reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

          This special anniversary strat has many great features!

Killer strat versatility makes for a very capable guitar! (I am an associate for Sam Ash Carle Place.)

          When I first played this guitar it encouraged me to stick with Fender until the end of time. Once you try this guitar you will begin to recognize the quality craftsmanship and dedication put into creating this beautiful instrument. In addition, the ease of use & customization options available make it truly unique to whomever owns it. Highly recommended to the guitar enthusiast or professional.

            Comments about Fender 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

            This is one amazing Strat. Fender really knocked it out of the park with this guitar. It is the perfect incarnation of what 60 years of fender can bring to the table. The compound radius neck is really comfortable when getting down on some sweet high register riffs. Special-Design 1954 Strat Single-Coil absolutely sing through the ash body and being a strat it is one versatile guitar. Great for hard rock or heavy metal, and great for really clean indie or alternative. Or just get a little bit of dirt for some blues or country it's the strat that can do it all!

            The strat history book and custom embroidered case really tie this package together too!

              This 2014 Fender will only be made in 2014 which brings the value of this up. The 2 tone finish on this screams value. With the body made of ash wood this guitar can really put out the sound Fender is known for. 3 single coil pickups with a 5 way switch. I'm a Staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

                    Very, very smooth guitar!! Very comfortable neck with sexy black inlays and incredible tone coming from the 54 single coil PUPS. This guitar sounds best through a fender amp, my suggestion would be a vintage bassman, but that's not always possible. Really, this guitar sells itself. Be careful, if you play one, it will go home with you.....you have been warned! :-)

                    Perfect for Fender lovers, a must have for the Strat-obsessed!

                      Classic Fender tone and looks. Although I am not usually a big fan of gold hardware, the beautiful sunburst finish really compliments the hardware. Vintage style bridge, love the maple fingerboard. A real beauty. Get one now, or you will probably have to wait another 10 years before you see another one like it.

                        The Fender Stratocaster changes music history when it was first released in 1964; 60 years ago this year! In honor of the guitar that we know and love Fender has released a limited edition 60th Anniversary Strat and it to say it does the legacy justice is putting it lightly. Right from opening the case you can tell hat this guitar is special. The finishing is impeccable and paired with the gold hardware, as opposed to the typical chrome hardware, and mother of pearl tuning pegs this guitar looks as beautiful as it sounds.

                        After plugging it in there is a vintage tone from the special design 1954 pickups; although they can certainly be dialed in for more modern sounds. In addition this guitar has a contoured heel (for easier access to higher frets) and a compound neck radius (the fingerboard will become more flat as you go up the neck; better for leads). If you're looking for a high quality guitar you'd have a hard time finding a better option.

                          Fender has always come through with commemorative models, and the 60th Anniversary Strat is no exception. Fender has taken its iconic superstar and created a beautiful and useful instrument to satisfy both the working pro or the collector. The '54 pickups have all the great Strat DNA, and give you all the iconic tones that made the guitar famous. Lots of warm, beautiful tones that can get as raunchy as you want. The satin-backed neck is smooth and comfortable, and the medium jumbo frets are perfect for anything you can throw at it. The finish is gorgeous, and the Gold hardware and pearl tuning buttons are icing on the cake. Doesn't matter what music you play, this guitar can cover it all, and do it looking great the whole time!
