Overview

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.

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.

The Fender Music Co. really hit a low note with this one. The aging of the guitar is both inacurate and lacking in artistic quality. It is beyond me how it is justifiable to pay extra for a lower quality guitar. When they stressed the finish, the did it in a totally inacurate way. If you look at guitars from this time period, you will find the lion's share to be VERY well maintained and in good condition. They also aged the wrong parts of the guitar. They stressed the edges of the body rather than the contoured edges on the front.

Finally, a smooth strat neck!

By Howard Gordon

from Laguna Niguel

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! :)

ahhh, no thanks

By heyjoe

from las vegas, nv

I've been playing guitar for 20 years, and I've owned many guitars. I picked up the road worn the other day and I'm sorry to say, it was quite disappointing. The action on it was so bad, I didn't even want to plug it in. Now, it could just be that it was that particular one here in vegas, but nothing past the 13th fret worked. I don't mean a little fret buzz either, the string didn't even play! The guitar might look cool, and the pups might sound good, but why not just buy a new (working) guitar and throw vintage pups in it?

Amazing.

By Shredman13

from Moreno Valley, CA

Amazing. There is only one word. I went into GuitarCenter looking for a guitar that could shred, and this was a good shred guitar(felt great and sounded good)and I immediately bought it, even though there were better shred guitars, but I loved everything about this guitar. I installed Floyd Rose Tremolo and a hot rail in the bridge, and I played better than ever before. I shred some Iron Maiden, and by just a flick of the switch, boom, I riffed some Pearl Jam and Nirvana. Truly a great guitar, and I am one big guitar snob.

Good sound WOW

By Angel

from Revere Mass

I trayed all the american made fender strat natick GC have at that moment, let me tell you guys the Road Worn Blown those strat away. more balanced sound and more body, the american fenders have more out up but less body on the sound, the road worn at less out put sound like the tube amp is about to break what a tone dudes, i did tray it with the same setting and there is nothing to compare, the road worn sound better then the american standard no doubt. so i bought the sunburst and i am so happy, i do have a american standard with texas spaecial and they sound way different for different situation. this is a goog guitar and looks great. one thing you have to give a really good set up to this baby, and them you will see the a huge different, play so smooth and sound with attitude.!!

The Deffinition of a Stratocaster

By Nick

from St. Louis, MO

I had bought a 2008 American VG Stratocaster, and played it for a few months and decided that it wasn't the "Strat" sound that I was looking for. I sold it, and bought this. This is the deffinition of a Fender Stratocaster. The feel, looks, and tone are everything I've loved about Strats. The smooth, worn finished neck feels great, and is easy to move up and down on. The Tex mex pickups can give you any sound, ranging from Kenny Wayne Shepherd blues, to Green Day punk. This guitar also has good weight. I have a Gibson SG Standard as my main guitar, but this guitar is quickly taking its place. I would recomend this to anybody wanting a classic sounding strat, for a relatively cheap price. Dont let the Made in Mexico status defer you, its a great strat

This guitar changed screams SRV

By Scott Eason

from Mulberry, Florida

I've had this guitar for a couple months and I still cant put it down. If you love playing the blues get this guitar the tone and feel of this guitar is amazing. I'm 40 years old and have been playing since I was 14. I have owned a lot of guitars over the years but this is the one. The strings will fret out on bends past the 15th fret unless you set the action higher because thats how all the early necks were radiused (7.25") but I can live with it. I plan on getting the neck compound radiused and a real bone nut installed after I wear these frets out anyway! By the way Real players dont care what there guitars look like as I plan to wear most of the nitro finish off this one in the next 30 years! If I dont have grand kids this one may be buried with me when I die!

Best strat there is out there at the moment.

By Rick Shank

from Elyria ohio

I decided to play this guitar because it just looked different so I did and I was blown away. Its way better than a amer standard and a bit cheaper. It looks and sounds better plays better the neck is much easier to use because the stain is a bit sanded down for aged look. I was blown away by the sound no matter what you play this guitar will slam your jaws to the floor!
