Product Description

The Fender Classic Series '60s Stratocaster Lacquer Guitar harkens back to the decade in which some of the most sought after instruments in Fender’s history were made! The authentic nitrocellulose lacquer finish on its sleek alder body and Maple neck gives this Strat a great feel and more importantly allows the tonewood to breath and resonate for better tone. Just like many 60’s Strats, this Classic Series ‘60s Strat Lacquer features a ‘C’-shaped maple neck with a 7.25-inch radius rosewood fingerboard plus three vintage-style single-coil pickups for that classic Fender tone.

Fender Classic Series '60s Strat Lacquer Guitar Features

  • Alder body with nitrocellulose lacquer finish
  • 21 vintage-style frets and vintage-style ivory-dot inlays
  • Three vintage-style single-coil pickups with five-way switching
  • Multi-ply pickguard
  • Aged control knobs and switch tip
  • Vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge and vintage-style tuners
  • Tweed case included
During the 1960s, rock music truly came into its own when musicians re-wrote the book on electric guitar by conjuring fantastic sounds and styles never before imagined. Leading the sonic charge during that exciting decade was the Stratocaster, which became not only an even more versatile musical tool, but also a true cultural symbol.

Bought the nick and dent version, and it is almost flawless. Two very small nicks only, plays great
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I play mostly Jazz solo guitar on vintage teles. When I saw this, I had to have one because my first guitar was a new 62 strat when I was 13 years old. I don't remember how that one played, but this sure brings back memories. I'm now 15(yea right). I bought the nick and dent, and had to search hard to find them. Finish looks great, and it plays real good. I didn't think I would play it much because this is for sure a rock and roll guitar, and I don't do much of that anymore, but, I haven't put it down since it arrived yesterday. My tele is just sitting there scratching it's tuning gears.....Case is great too....
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
It's made in Mexico, and I understand they use all USA parts. The quality is very good
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It's a little heavier than my favorite Tele, but it is lighter than I thought it would be. I still need to set it up a little. I think it was a return, and person who had it before me tried to adjust the pickups(one of them needs to be lowered). The heavy laquer makes it sticky to me, so I will steel wool that, and I think the neck needs a tweek. Otherwise, inonation and all else seems fine
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Normally, I modify almost all my guitars..Pickups, capacitor switches, etc, but this one is staying stock
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish actually looks too new for me. I'll have to work on that...
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I saved around $150 for the scratch and dent, and am glad I did it that way.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
The action is tolerable. It came with much lighter strings than I usually use. There is a little buzzing at higher frets on the low E string, but, nothing too outragious, and I will adjust it some
