Fast neck, hot electronics, and thin-skin lacquer.
The wildest of all the American Vintage Hot Rod guitars, this retro custom axe starts with an American Vintage '57 Stratocaster and ties together several generations of Strat customizations in one killer player's instrument. It has a slim V neck profile with satin-finish back, 9.5" fingerboard radius, and medium-jumbo frets to boost the playability. The souped-up electronics roar with Samarium Cobalt Noiseless guitar pickups at the neck and mid along with a DiMarzio Tone Zone pickup at the bridge, plus the second tone control is wired to the bridge pickup. A top-of-the-line thin-skin nitrocellulose lacquer finish gives it the right look. The rest is true-blue '57 Strat: comfort-contoured alder body, maple neck with vintage C profile, Fender/Gotoh vintage-style tuners, single-ply white pickguard, and chrome hardware.
The U.S. Vintage Hot Rod Series from Fender creates new instruments but with looks, specs, and features that make them feel as if you were the third owner of a vintage instrument. Here's your chance to own that beautiful player's electric guitar but in brand new shape and freshly set up from the Fender factory!
