The Classic series captures the essence of old-school Fender, with the options of supercharged circuitry and mods of a true 21st-century instrument. The Road Worn ’60s Stratocaster sounds, looks and feels like it’s been there and back, has more than a few miles on it, and then some. With authentic 1960s styling aged to impart a lifetime of wear and tear that has somehow made it get even better, it’s a must-have for the Strat player who appreciates broken-in look and vibe.
The irresistibly cool look of finish worn through to the wood, rusted hardware, a bruised neck and yellowing plastic parts are yours right away with Road Worn instruments.

Narrow jumbo frets are taller and slightly narrower than their medium jumbo cousins, making them especially effective for bending notes.
7.25” Fingerboard Radius
The fingerboard radius is an important spec that describes the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard. This instrument has a 7.25” fingerboard radius, with a more pronounced “vintage-style” curvature typical of Fender guitars from the 1950s, ’60 and ’70s. It’s the way to go for those who grew up with vintage instruments or simply prefer the feel of greater fingerboard curvature.
The Tex-Mex single-coil pickups on this guitar are over-wound for tight, clear bass, sparkling high end and maximum output ideal for everything from soaring clean tone to earthy Texas grit.
