CLASSIC VIBE STRATOCASTER® '60S
The rough-and-tumble Classic Vibe Stratocaster® '60s evokes that musically adventurous decade, adding a few modern features. The thick tone comes from the alnico V single-coil pickups—quick attack with a bit more midrange force. Custom staggered polepieces provide improved string-to-string balance. The 60s-style neck hosts a modern 9.5" radius for comfortable playing and string bending. FEATURES Maple neck with "C"-shaped profile and 21-fret rosewood fingerboard
Three custom vintage-style single-coil Stratocaster pickups
Five-way pickup switch
Vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge
VINTAGE-TINT GLOSS NECK FINISH The neck on this model sports a vintage-tinted gloss finish for a highly desirable aged look. ALNICO V SINGLE-COIL PICKUPS These pickups use classic Alnico V magnets for slightly hotter output with enhanced string balance and warm midrange—great for lead guitar. MODERN NECK WITH "C"-SHAPED PROFILE This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary "C"-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) and a smooth back finish—ideal for those who play with the thumb on the back or side of the neck.
This guitar is being sold at a discounted price because it was slightly damaged in shipping. Accordingly, it has a factory authorized repair to the back of the lower bout (see last picture in the listing above). The repair is smooth to the touch and is not visible from the front of the guitar. Needless to say the repair has no impact on its beauty, playability or that incredible Strat sound.
