Product Description

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. The Road Worn ’50s 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 1950s 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.

Fender Road Worn 50s Stratocaster Guitar Features

  • 1950s style with aged/worn body, neck, finish and hardware touches
  • Maple neck with '50s-era "soft V" profile
  • 7.25"-radius maple fingerboard with 21 narrow jumbo frets
  • Tex-Mex™ single-coil pickups with modern five-way switching
  • Vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge
  • Worn nitrocellulose-lacquer finish
Narrow Jumbo Frets
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.

Tex-Mex™ Pickups
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.

Disappointed
What is your opinion of this product?
First off, the guitar does not look like the one pictured. Mine was minimally aged and the pickguard was crisp white and brand new. Second, it was unplayable out of the box. It needed a lot of fret work before the high E could be bent above the 12th fret. After putting $200 into it, including an aged pickguard, it's a nice player...

Good guitar if you are willing to spend some extra money getting it right.
What is your opinion of this product?
It is a Mexican Strat. We all know Mexican Strats are basic mid-low quality guitars. It looks pretty cool, I bought it as a living room guitar that I don't mind my kid knocking over. ( leave my Americans in my music room).The frets are really bad and sharp. You need to spend $100 getting the frets smooth and right. Tuners are cheap chinese reprod. The Texas special pups are noisy with no punch. Put aside $179 to buy a tube screamer to get any sound out of them. It sounds like I am trashing this but I am not. It is a $700 guitar... I have $3000 guitars and you get what you pay for. This is much better than a same price Epiphone anything or a cheap Ibanez. I spent $500 getting this guitar right. A set of vintage noisless pups a set of kluson tuners and a Callaham bridge.... It is now a really nice player . The " worn" finish looks a bit fake, but a year of playing this every day will even out the fake worn look. Get a scratch and dent like me and it is worth every penny .

Poor workmanship
What is your opinion of this product?
The first thing I noticed was that the pick guard was bowed by the bridge and when you press on it the pickup moves up and down with it. Secondly after closer inspection the pick guard was bowed in other areas also. The pick guard was considerably thinner than the usual pick guards you see on even the less expensive guitars. For this price you would expect first of all a guitar made in the US (this was made in Mexico), secondly (Form, Fit and Function people, for almost a thousand dollars the finish and fit should be correct. Seriously disappointed.

Great guitar, factory setup atrocious
Ash body, maple neck and relic's components are true to the original '56 and '57 specs this guitar is modeled after. THat means inherent little issues like the tendency of the single-ply pickguards to bow is present, and the tuners work like the vintage tuners they're standing in for, which is to say "not all that great. THese, too, are easily replaced if one wishes to do so. Overall, the quality of this Mexican build is great ... just as long as the truss rod works like its supposed to. My neck was shipped with a significant twist beginning st the 6th fret, but I was easily able to adjust the rod so that I got the neck bow I want on a Strat. I've heard so e of these guitars shipped with horrific twists and non-working truss rods, so be careful and pay attention to the return policy.
I've only had it for two mo ths, and it's been perfectly reliable in that short period of time. However, I won't be able to give a good answer for a year or so.
Your general opinion of this product.
If, like most, you can't afford a true collectible or the high-end relic, this is the Strat for you. If you like your guitars in their new, pristine condition, you shouldn't even consider the Relic or Road Worn series. But if you like guitars that have been "broken in," then I can't recommend the Mexican built Road Worn guitars highly enought ... with a couple of caveats.
It really does feel like a well-played Strat with about 100,000 miles on the odometer. The 50s neck shape is my favorite, and it's been well-replicated here. It feels as ligh as a Strat is supposed to feel: well-balanced and solid. But again, it's unplayable out of the box.
The stock pickups have to potential to get you the sou D's you're after, but doing so requires lots of outboard EG, compression and noise reduction. Once I replaced those pickups with the Rio Grande Triple Calibrated set, sound is a wet dream.
These guitars sport a thin nitrocellulose finish that looks great from a distance. It's when you get up close that you start to notice finish work that could have been completed by a team of chimps. The body relic'img looks terrific, though not beat up enough for my taste. So I simple took some fine grit sandpaper and steel wool, and went to town until I had it looking the way I wanted it to look.,I also used my Leatherman to,add a few strategic dings and scratches. I finished my own relic'ing work by rubbing used wet coffee grounds into the newly exposed wood, and the effect was amazing. The stock fretboard relic job, on the other hand, was a bit overdone. Again, a little sandpaper/steel wool and buffing did the trick.
Action out off the box was atrocious. The guitar was completely unplayable. The floating trim floated about a quarter of an inch rather than the recommended eight, which rendered the trem unseeable. Intonation couldn't have been worse. For an intermittent such as myself, it took several hours to rectify these issues. An expert or someone with an experienced tech could knock this stuff out in an out. But DO NOT even attemp to haul this guitar from box to stage. You won't be playing this guitar without "passing go" a few times. The fret ends also required significant filing and buffing. But those big frets make string bends a pleasure, and they're rather more forgivi ng than the smaller frets used on some Strats.
