My Classic ’60s Stratocaster

May 29, 2009

41614_lI play out of a Fender Classic Players ’60’s Stratocaster. It is Mexican made, but it is one of the best feeling guitars I have ever played. The fact that it is Mexican means that there will be a great variation in the quality of each guitar, but if you are careful when selecting the guitar. In terms of technical specs is a fairly typical strat. It has an Alder body, that comes in either 3-color burst, black, Lake Placid Blue, and Candy Apple Red. It has a maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard and 21 vintage style frets. It is equipped with three Vintage Style Single-Coil Strat, a five way pickup selector, one volume control, and two tone controls. It has a Vintage Style Synchronized Tremolo bridge. I suggest doing some research on this model it has served me well for more then a year now and it is still going strong. When I got it is was in need of some setting up but over all it has been a great guitar. Thanks and see you next time.
