Authentic ’50s Strat® Style

For guitarists who must have the instrument's original-era tone, look and feel, the Classic Series '50s Stratocaster Lacquer epitomizes the guitar in the decade of its debut, with unmistakable early Strat® style and sparkling sound. With authentic vintage-style features including a nitrocellulose lacquer finish in classic Candy Apple Red, everything about it takes you back to the time of diners, "Ike for President," cars with fins, a wild new kind of music called rock 'n' roll and an upstart little Southern California company called Fender.

  • Candy Apple Red nitrocellulose lacquer finish
  • Maple neck with “soft V”-shaped profile and “small” headstock
  • 7.25”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets
  • Vintage-style single-coil Stratocaster pickups with staggered pole pieces

    Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish
    Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish

    Nitrocellulose lacquer is one of the great original-era Fender electric guitar finishes, and is still used today on select instruments. Thin, porous and delicate, it’s a premium finish prized for sonic qualities that let body woods breathe with their true tonal character, and for an appearance that ages and wears in a distinctive way appealing to many players.

    "Soft V" Neck Profile
    "Soft V" Neck Profile

    The "soft V" neck profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) on this instrument has a distinctly comfortable fretting-hand feel that takes the more pronounced sharpness of a ’50s "V" profile and "softens" it into a somewhat more rounded shape. Ideal for players with larger hands whose thumb extends over the edge of the fingerboard.
