The Fender Road Worn '50s Stratocaster is an electric guitar that delivers killer aged looks, feel, and mojo without breaking the bank. The '50s Road Worn Strat was designed using 1950's specs augmented by Tex-Mex pickups and 6105 frets.

Like classic cars or your favorite T-shirt, some things just get cooler with age. It's especially true of electric guitars. They develop an unmistakable mojo over time that makes them look even cooler and feel even more comfortable than when they were new. In that regard, the Fender Road Worn '50s Stratocaster is a true player.

Includes a gig bag.

  • How a Strat should really Sound

    As reviewed by jeffbluesrock on 9/30/2009

    OK, I've had it for a month now, and this Strat kicks butt, no apologies! I can't put it down, it's that good! It's almost passing my beloved PRS CE24 as my "go to" guitar. Nevermind what some reviews have stated about upgrading the pick-ups. I have a USA made Lonestar Strat with the Texas Specials & Duncan Pearly Gates; it doesn't come anywhere close to getting those vintage Strat tones as this Roadworn! With a Mesa Lonestart 2X12 & absolutely no effects, I'm getting dead on Mark Knophler, Robbert Cray, SRV, Chris Duarte, Tommy Castro, "Derek" area Clapton, and with some VS Route 66 & delay, even Eric Johnson tones. Thanks Fender for having the Custom Shop guys show the Baja craftsmen how to do the 'Relic' thing, although I would have bought the guitar if it was shinny new & looked/played/sounded this good. I said to the Roseville Guitar Center salesman, "Now that's how a Start should sound' upon playing it. If you have been looking for that classic Strat tone, well brothers/sisters, here it is!!!

  • This Guitar is with me 24/7!

    As reviewed by Marq on 8/17/2010

    At first I was quite skeptical about the "Road Worn" series. It seemed a rather expensive and kind of dumb idea to beat-up a guitar on purpose to make it look like it's been well played, presumeably so when some poser goes to buy it, they can LOOK like they've been playing it for years... And then I played one (the one I bought) just on a lark and was really taken aback by the great neck and action, tone, and even the vintage look that is really pretty amazingly realistic (I have a million photo books of vintage Fenders that I drool over all the time, it looks just like them). This particular one (Road Worn 50's Strat, 2-Tone Sunburst, Maple fretboard) was set-up like gold from the factory. The guitar really resonates and sings when unplugged. The amplified tone was a bit dull at first, then I noticed the pick-ups were adjusted at the lowest possible level (but with a slightly high action on the strings, the way I like it) so I just raised them a bit and now she's a tone MONSTER. The tone is very bright and bluesy and vintage sounding, and it really seems like the nitro finish and lack of finish on most of the neck contribute to an extra-alive tone on the maple Road Worn Strat. And I got it to carry in a gig bag EVERYWHERE and so that if despite my best efforts it's picks up a scratch or ding now and then, WHO CARES, it's already dinged and scratched!. Instead of stressing about trying to keep my new looking guitar looking new, I can relax and enjoy letting my old looking guitar get even older and cooler looking! I really sold on this guitar. GET ONE!
