Solidbody Electric Guitar with Alder Body, Maple Neck, Pau Ferro Fingerboard, and 3 Single-coil Pickups – Burgundy Mist Metallic
The Perfect Blend of Classic and Contemporary
The Fender Vintera ’60s Stratocaster Modified will give you the vintage tones you’re looking for coupled with the feel and playability of a modern Strat. This guitar features a contoured alder body, comfy C-shaped maple neck, and pau ferro fingerboard. You’ll love the Tim Shaw Hot ’65 pickups that are a higher-output take on the classic ’60s Strat pickups. Where this one breaks from tradition is the modern 9.5″ fretboard radius, medium jumbo frets, upgraded tremolo bridge, and S-1 switching. Even die-hard vintage Strat purists at Musiekwereld love the S-1 switch that adds the neck pickup to positions 1 and 2. The Fender Vintera ’60s Stratocaster Modified is the perfect blend of classic styling and contemporary playing improvements.
Unique vintage inspired pickups
For the ’60s Stratocaster Modified, Tim Shaw has created his take on the Stratocaster pickups from the 1960s. His Hot ’65 pickups feature period-correct plain enamel wire and staggered Alnico 5 pole pieces. You’ll love the very slight bite that these pickups add to the traditional spanky Stratocaster sound. The higher output sounds great whether you’re playing clean or dirty.
The newest classic tonewood combination
The Vintera ’60s Stratocaster Modified stays true to its roots with classic tonewoods. The lightweight alder body and maple neck combine to make a bright and resonant body that’s been loved by players for decades. Instead of the classic rosewood board, Fender used pau ferro to add depth and warmth to the sound. Brighter than rosewood but warmer than ebony, pau ferro is the newest classic Fender fretboard material.
The Modified versions of the Vintera series come loaded with a 5-way switch and Fender’s exclusive S-1 switching system. The S-1 system simply adds the neck pickup to your sound. When you’re playing in positions 1 and 2, you can press down on the volume knob to add the neck pickup. Now, you can finally play through all three pickups at once or with the neck and bridge at the same time.
