        Comments about Fender Classic Series ‘70s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        Mexican, CBS style guitars get a bad rap. I have one of these and I love it. (Although...I own a few USA Guitars...and we really do make to best guitars in the world...there is a difference) Back to this guitar....Mine has a great vintage tone and feel which I wouldn't describe it as limited to just a "70's" type sound. I play anything from Stevie Ray Vaughn to Buddy Holly type sounds on this. My guitar tech even commented on how impressed he was with the wood grain match (I have the natural finish), the feel and the tone. I play through a Marshall 100w tube amp....yeah that helps make anything sound good, but it does do "vintage" very well. My guitar has a highly underrated "U" polyurethane maple fretboard neck. This feels great to me! I switch off from Gibsons to Fenders and this fatter neck just feels right to me. They may be criticized as being slower (so I'm told) but a bigger neck causes less fatigue then a thinner neck. I'm all about playing longer not faster.

        Comments about Fender Classic Series ‘70s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        This guitar is hard to find in Stores, don't know why. It has that vibe, that sound that can bring you back to one of the greatest eras in music history. When I saw it at a nearby [...] , I had to play it. After I played it, I had to buy it. Great vintage sound from Fender's Vintage Pickup's. I have other Strats with aftermarket PU's that promise that vintage sound, and they do but I think that sound can be overdone.Too much twang, sheen, sparkle, ETC. I think the PU's on this classic 70's guitar nail it because it is IT. Ofcourse there is the requisite HUM. that can be alleviatd by not sitting on top of your amp. while playing and using better cables.
