The Classic Series ’50s Stratocaster® guitar epitomises the vibe of the ’50s. The colour selection alone – Surf Green, Daphne Blue and Fiesta Red – takes you back to the era of diners, Ike and cars with fins. With a maple fingerboard, tinted neck, single-ply pickguard and aged plastic parts, it’s authentically retro, and the three single-coil pickups with alnico magnet pole pieces deliver that unmistakable ’50s Stratocaster sound.
CLASSIC ’50S STRAT® STYLE
For guitarists who must have the instrument’s original-era tone, look and feel, the Classic Series ’50s Stratocaster epitomizes the guitar in the decade of its debut, with unmistakable early Strat® style and sparkling sound. With its authentic vintage-style features and finishes, everything about it takes you back to the time of diners, “Ike for President,” cars with fins, a wild new kind of music called rock ‘n’ roll and an upstart little Southern California company called Fender.

VINTAGE-STYLE SINGLE-COIL PICKUPS
This instrument features vintage-style single-coil pickups that expertly evoke the sound and style of classic Fender guitars from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s.
“SOFT V” NECK PROFILE
The “soft V” neck profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) on this instrument has a distinctly comfortable fretting-hand feel that takes the more pronounced sharpness of a ’50s “V” profile and “softens” it into a somewhat more rounded shape. Ideal for players with larger hands whose thumb extends over the edge of the fingerboard.
VINTAGE-STYLE SIX-SADDLE SYNCHRONIZED TREMOLO BRIDGE
With authentic design and performance that evokes the Stratocasters of the 1950s and ’60s, this model features a vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge with six saddles.
