Fender Road Worn 60s Stratocaster Pau Ferro Fingerboard 3-Color Sunburst

The Fender Road Worn 60s Stratocaster, 3-Tone Sunburst delivers an aged style, feel, and tone for the vintage rock enthusiast, while offering the reliability and quality of a brand-new instrument for the ultimate performance. Its lightweight alder body is finished in a distressed 3-tone sunburst, creating a visually stunning aesthetic and delivering beautifully balanced tones. Its ''C'' shaped maple neck and 7.25'' radius pau ferro fingerboard offers players an incredibly smooth performance, and delivers bright characteristics with plenty of midrange punch. A set of Tex-Mex single-coil pickups provides the Strat with a modern tone, while retaining the characteristics of the vintage guitar for a sparking high end and increased output. A vintage-style synchronised tremolo completes the classic look of the Fender, offering amazing pitch shifting effects and expanding the guitar's tonal versatility. Built to look, sound, and perform like it's seen many miles of road and been played on countless stages, the Road Worn 60s Stratocaster is the ideal choice for players who appreciate the broken-in look and vibe.

Beautifully Road Worn Alder Body

The 60s Stratocaster features an alder body in a beautifully road worn finish, mimicking the wear and tear of a guitar that’s been on the road for many years and seen of stage time. Alder is an excellent tonewood, producing balanced, resonant tones with plenty of clarity and midrange bite ideal for the versatile musician. The body delivers 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.

Maple Neck & Pau Ferro Fingerboard

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 provides the Stratocaster with 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.

Trio of Tex-Mex Single-Coil Pickups

A set of Tex-Mex single-coil pickups infuse the Road Worn 60s Stratocaster with a beautifully modern tone, whilst still retaining the characteristics of the vintage-style guitar. Designed with alnico V magnets to deliver extra focus and dynamics, the Tex-Mex pickups are over-wound to provide the guitar with a tight, clear bass response, sparkling highs, and an increased output. The middle pickup is designed with a reverse-wound reverse-polarity setup, eliminating any hum when used with the bridge or neck pickups. Also featuring staggered pole pieces for a balanced output, the Tex-Mex pickups are ideal for blues, rock, country, pop, and jazz.

Narrow Tall Frets

Another addition to this model are the 21 narrow tall frets, which are mounted on the pau ferro fingerboard and provide incredible comfort when performing slides. Being slightly narrower than standard medium jumbo frets, the narrow tall frets are incredible effective for bending notes and playing chords with superb intonation.

Resonant Synthetic Bone Nut

Featuring a carefully fitted synthetic bone nut, the Fender Strat delivers an increased resonance and bright tonality. When compared to traditional plastic and Tusq materials used to construct guitar nuts, synthetic bone improves the vibration transfer between the string and tuning machines without dampening the tone.

The History of the Stratocaster

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.
