Fender Classic Series 60s Stratocaster Pau Ferro Fingerboard Lake Placid Blue
Please Note Actual Case May Vary
The Fender Classic Series 60s Stratocaster, Lake Placid Blue offers players the sounds, looks, and feel of Stratocasters from the 1960's, the same decade when musicians began to push the boundaries of music and craft 'never-heard-before' sounds. Its lightweight alder body is coupled with a maple neck and pau ferro fingerboard, delivering the beautifully balanced response and upper middle definition that Fender have favoured for decades. Its smooth ''C'' neck profile and 7.25'' radius fingerboard ensures players receive and incredibly comfortable performance. Its set of vintage-style single-coil pickups deliver Fender's classic tonal qualities, designed to channel the very essence of the pickups they used in the 60s. A vintage-style synchronised tremolo finishes the guitar's looks and tonal versatility, making the Classic Series 60s Stratocaster ideal for players wanting an original-era Strat without the price tag.
The Classic Series Strat features an alder body, producing balanced, resonant tones with plenty of clarity and midrange bite ideal for the versatile musician. The alder tonewood provides a decent amount of sustain, creating bright, sizzling highs, beautifully rounded lows, and a beefy midrange. Fender have used alder as their tonewood of choice since the 1950s, as the balanced response and slight upper middle definition makes it perfect for rock and blues playing.
The Fender Guitar’s maple neck provides bright tonal characteristics, tightening up the sound and giving it plenty of cut. The maple delivers a powerfully sharp punch when the strings are hit hard, whilst still retaining its clarity to allow each note to sing. The vintage-style 7.25'' radius pau ferro fingerboard offers the same fundamental tones as a rosewood fingerboard, while the ''C'' shaped profile provides a smooth playing feel. The pau ferro also delivers a warm, soft tone whilst helping to ‘fur up’ the maple’s natural sound. The neck and fingerboard combination provide the guitar with sparkling, sizzling highs, a thick, firm low end, and an open midrange with a snappy attack.
Equipped with a set of powerful vintage-style single-coil strat pickups, the Classic 60s Stratocaster delivers beautifully vintage tones suitable for a wide variety of playing styles. The pickups offer plenty of sustain to ensure each note sings, while its bell-like character and excellent articulation makes the guitar perfect for creating epic solos and massive soundscapes. Use the master volume and 2 x tone controls to dial in the perfect sound for any situation, and flick between pickups with the high quality 5-way switch.
Featuring a carefully fitted synthetic bone nut, the Fender Strat delivers an increased resonance and bright tonality. When compared to traditional plastic and Tusq guitar nuts, synthetic bone improves the vibration transfer between the string and tuning machines without dampening the tone.
When many people think of an electric guitar, this is the one that leaps to mind. The Stratocaster is one of the world's most popular guitars and is an elegantly versatile creation. Not long after Fender revolutionised music with the Telecaster and the Precision Bass, in 1954 they debuted the Stratocaster and it quickly became universally regarded as the archetypal electric guitar. Sleek and stylish aesthetics, smooth playing and tonally versatile, at the heart the Stratocaster remains a fantastic instrument - producing unmistakable sound with a timeless design. A first choice among players worldwide, there is simply nothing that sings, screams, whispers, moans, roars, rocks and rolls like a Fender Stratocaster.
