The Vintera series is a great range of instruments from Fender. This is a 50’s Modified Strat in two Tone Sunburst. One of the biggest factors at play on this Vintera design is its modern C shape neck. It fills the fretting hand aplenty, whilst guaranteeing smooth transition up and down the matching maple neck and fretboard. It’s a modern take on an old favourite, and as with all Fender guitars, the hardware is highly reliable and can take on years of playing having been made in their high-tech Mexico factory.
This is what Fender has to say about it:
For players who appreciate the mojo of the past matched to contemporary features, we created the Vintera® ‘50s Stratocaster® Modified. Blending classic looks with a modern neck profile and fingerboard radius, hotter pickups and updated electronics, this guitar packs a surprising amount of power under the hood.
For modern Fender® tone we re-voiced the trio of single-coil Stratocaster pickups, kicking things up a bit by increasing the output. Crisp and articulate, they have the power you need for any style of music. The “Modern C”-shaped neck has a 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets, for modern playing feel. A contemporary, two-point synchronized tremolo with vintage-style bent-steel saddles offers rock-solid performance and tuning stability. The S-1™ switch adds the neck pickup in positions 1 and 2, unlocking even more tonal variety. Other features include vintage-style locking tuning machines, vintage-style strap buttons and chrome hardware. Includes a deluxe gig bag.
