        Comments about Fender Classic Series '50s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        WOW !! I am blown away ! Just as others have proclaimed, this 50s Series Strat defines the way the first ones sounded from the 1950s. Pickups are that glassy creamy sound , the way a Strat should sound. Build quality seems to be on par with American made strats. The Daphine Blue is gorgeous and this guitar needs nothing IMOP. I have had a lot of Strats during the last 10 years and this one I will keep forever. It is truly the BEST ONE I have ever encountered, American or Mexican or Japanese ,ect. I would put it up against any Strat for it`s sound , fit and finish and the wonderful neck and playability PERIOD

                I have played guitar for 30 years, everything from punk,ska, metal, jazz, blues. i own lots of guitars and do my own adjustments and mods. this guitar straight from GC Overland Park, Ks kicks butt. its fiesta red. its a strat, so there is not the heavy butter bottom end. i play through a marshall jvm or peavey classic 30 modded and this guitar sounds wonderful. the only pedal i use is a old zoom G1. i have a very high end strat and squiers, this guitar sounds better than my squier but on par with my american standard. buy it, you need it.

                Comments about Fender Classic Series '50s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

                The first think I liked was the shaped V shaped neck. For my bigger fingers and hands it made total sense. Players like Hendrix had big hands and not all necks fit the palm like this neck. Set up was so easy and intonation just took a few minutes. I play very light strings and only minor amp adjustments needed. So today I bought a second one just a different color and a HSS pick guard for a pickup,modification. This guitar is not routed for a humbucker bridge so know your skills. It took about two hours to reroute by hand the cavity mount the pickup and new pick guard. I will tweak it a bit but it sounds rather great .

                A great value

                By Jeremy Lance

                from Tulsa

                Comments about Fender Classic Series '50s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

                I bought a 2010 Daphne Blue '50s Classic Stratocaster used from the Guitar Center in Tulsa. It came with a nice tweed case. It plays like a dream. It plays as nicely as my mid-'80s Japanese Tele, and that's saying a lot. It plays as well as some American Fenders that I've played as well. The tremolo is easier to manipulate than any of my other tremolos, but I'm sure that's the result of weak springs. The tuners and electronics are good quality, especially the switch which makes the guitar feel like a top quality instrument. The pickups sound good, ranging from an ice-picky trebly bridge sound to a warm neck sound. If you can find one in a store to try out first (they seem to be rare in stores, this is the only one I've ever seen in a retail outlet and Fender doesn't seem to be pushing them very hard) you won't be disappointed. Everybody who plays it loves it. This is a great guitar at a good price.

                Stuck in the Era...

                By John Johnson

                from Anaheim, CA

                Comments about Fender Classic Series '50s Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

                The V-Shaped neck might seem odd, but in my opinion it was rather comfortable. The Gotoh tuners and bridge are quality The high gloss finish was a bit thick but not ridiculous. The surf green finish looked excellent! However, I warn you: These pickups are super vintage sounding, great for the Buddy Holly clean, jangly sound and some bright, classic overdrive tones but it doesn't lend itself toward heavy effects or a ballsy bottom end.
