A guitar with a cool, aged look; feel; and mojo - like your favorite old pair of jeans.

The Fender Road Worn '60s Stratocaster was designed using 1950s 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 aura 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 '60s Stratocaster is a true player.

Includes a gig bag.

  • Road worn 60s strat

    As reviewed by Crossroad B on 5/23/2009

    Ive had 2 strats,and a vintage 60's Jaguar. This thing is amazing. At first I thought why should I pay that much for a "worn" guitar, but The sound is incredible. This is the best sounding and playing guitar I have ever owned. I had the players deluxe a few years ago and this guitar plays better than that. Honestly, This may be the last guitar I buy in a VERY long time. It may "wear out" before I buy another one. If you have the cash, and are looking for something that sounds,looks and plays great, buy it. Thats all I can say.

  • Ditto 2 WOW!

    As reviewed by RBL on 4/13/2010

    I've only been playing electrics since 1969- beginning with strat and LP knockoffs from old Lafayette Electonics Catalog etc. Currently own PRS 513, '05 Clapton Strat, Gretsch 6120, Ric 360 and a few others. I treated myself to buying this guitar for Christmas 2009-found it by mistake taking a PRS Sweet 16 amp for a test run-have hardly put it down since-always grab for it due to it's great feel. C-shape neck is so easy to play especially due to sanding as well a light-weight feel due to worn nitro finish. Tone is pure classic strat and it rings/sustains beautifully like the best PRS models due to the worn nitro finish. Harmonics are exceptional. Trem/bridge very stable on this guitar-I usualy block strats, but have kept this baby active and love it. Classic tuners are quite stable too.Even though overall guitar has comprehensive relic treatment, the frets/fretbard are like new-rosewood fretboard yields nice warm tone. The look-probably a matter of taste. I think it looks cool, but not really that important compared to awesome feel, and tons of sweet classic strat tones. Had mine set up by my tech, but not a whole lot needed other than slight lowering of action. This guitar is a huge value. MIM means nothing on this model-it's as sweet as anything made anywhere including the good ole US of A. Props to Fender! You can spend a few thousand more and get the same or less feel, playbility, and tone. Play in to mostly Fender and Ampeg tube amps yielding heavenly tones. Yeah, this IS the one. Perhaps a diamond in the rough, but THE one. Like another post says, if this axe doesn't get handed down then it's goin in the ground with me someday-hopefully a long time from now because playing this guitar is just too much fun.

  • Finally, a smooth strat neck!

    As reviewed by Howard Gordon on 1/12/2013

    For years, I have found the shellac or lacquer that Fender globs all over their necks a hinderance to fast and quiet movement around the neck. The neck on the RW strat is like the unfinished necks on a Zakk Wylde Signature Les Paul. What an improvement! Moving up and down the neck is so much faster and no squeaks from the finish coming through as well. The middle poles pieces are quite high and your pick hits it, which can be a tad annoying. Overall, it sounds like a strat with Tex Mex pickups, certainly, glassy or biting tones are easy to get. The relicing? well, I don't see how anyone can say a dent or scratch look fake or real. If it had the unfinished neck I would be fine. I own a Jimmy Vaughn with Tex Mex pickups and they sound identical players here having ranted about the tone being better, but when I plug in the Vaughn strat - there is no noticeable airyness or difference in tone. I have been playing a long time and own many guitars, and other than the playability the tone is no different than my MIM with Tex Mex. As far as the finish, I got the white, which looks good except for the pick guard is tinted to a green tone, which I found to look out of place on this guitar....white turns yellow, not green. Unless there is mold growing? The aging on much of the chrome hardware looks brand new, and does not match the faux aged bridge. Kudos to guitar center for shipping immediately and discounting the price to match another lower price. The draw of this guitar is no heavy neck finish, and since it is already dinged and scratched, it's a guitar you can just throw in your back seat without a case....as what's going to happen, a dent or scratch? Oh, no worries polishing it, as they don't fingerprint! :)
