        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.

          Comments about Fender 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

          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!

              Comments about Fender 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

              This guitar pretty much sums up what the fender stratocaster is all about. Incredbile yet simple looks, insane playability, and a tone that no other guitar can capture. The vintage 1954 pickups in this guitar, combined with the ash body, gives this guitar a sound that truly sets it apart from any other strat in the fender line. The modern C shape neck has to be one of the most comfortable neck ive ever played in my life. The gold hardware and 2-color sunburst finish gives the guitar a very classy and distinct look, when people see you playng this guitar, they know you mean business.

              The Exception or the Rule

                    Strats are great for many reasons: icon status, great sound & playability, & more after-market parts for customization than any other model of guitar! But the number of factory models, combined with all the customized "super-strats" out there, leave most players having never played a REAL ONE.... This is the best example of the original concept- combined with the best of modern components & innovation I have ever played. The 50's pickups are warm & much smoother than the fire & spit you get from some others. The compound radius neck supports the long bends & adds major thumb relief What a monster!!!

                    This instrument represents much of what Fender has learned after 60 years of developing the world's most popular electric guitar. The softened heel joint and compound radius fingerboard make this easy to play, while the vintage sounding pickups and fine tone woods give it that renowned twang and sparkling tone. The Ash body is true to the Strats that made Fender famous, and the gold hardware lends a real touch of class to complete the package.

                          Whenever I go to pick up any electric guitar, my strat is my go to guitar. There just isn't anything else like it. It is easily the most versatile electric guitar you can find on the market. I love to use my strat for both recording/live purposes. For starters, I like the maple neck/fret board, especially when it starts to age. It really gives the guitar a vintage feel. I also am in love with the feel of the neck itself; it feels so natural in my hands. I also like having 5 different neck pick ups, which is what really allows the guitar to be so versatile in sound. The tremolo is just perfect for me too; it doesn't mess with the intonation as much and you can really go for some insane EVH dive-bombs. This is a classic guitar that every electric guitarist should incorporate into their collection.

                            This is a wonderfully crafted 60th anniversary Strat that both sounds and plays beautifully. I'm a big fan of American Strats and the range of tones that they offer, and this guitar does it all. The single-coil pickups give you all the punchiness in the mid-range that's typical of strats, and retains the warmth of the lower end and lower mids. Sound wise, through any tube amp you'll get the tones of legendary recordings from around the world. As far as looks, the gold hardware is a huge plus, and the paint work of the sunburst is beautifully done. the pearl tuning knobs are a big plus as well.
