Fender's Vintage Hot Rod '50s Stratocaster gives you authentically vintage-style features and hot-rodded mods ideal for today's players.

The Fender Vintage Hot Rod '50s Stratocaster Electric Guitar retains many of the original specs  that  made that first generation of Strats cherished by players and collectors alike.  This Strat features the contoured alder body that set the standard for comfort and playability. You also get a 1954-style “D” Shaped maple neck with the period correct 21-fret rosewood fingerboard vintage-style heel-end truss rod adjustment.

Players love to customize their Fender guitars, and for this model, Fender has taken care of the mods for you. The back of the neck has a satin-finish to give you a comfortable worn-in feel.  The gloss-finish Maple fingerboard has been re-shaped into a compound-radius that starts at 7.25” at the 1st fret, allowing for easier chord voicings, and gradually flattens out to a comfortable 12” radius which facilitates clean, effortless string bending anywhere along the neck, without the worry of your notes “fretting out” as you go into the upper registers.  This custom fingerboard is topped off with 21 Narrow Jumbo 6105 frets for luxurious playability.

Fender has outfitted this Vintage Hot Rod Strat with a perfect combination of three single-coil pickups from various eras. The singing tone comes from American Vintage single-coil ’59 Stratocaster (neck), ’56 Stratocaster middle pickup, Texas Special™ single-coil Stratocaster bridge pickup. In addition to five-way blade pickup switching, an S-1™ switch adds the bridge pickup to positions 3, 4 and 5. Chrome hardware includes a two-point synchronized tremolo with vintage-style stamped steel saddles, and Gotoh locking tuners and locking strap buttons. Other vintage-style features include a single-ply white pickguard and three aged white control knobs (master volume, tone 1, tone 2).

A deluxe vintage-style tweed case, 8’ cable, black strap, extra tremolo springs and wrenches are included with your Vintage Hot Rod '50s Stratocaster.
