Fender Vintera '60s Stratocaster Pau Ferro Ice Blue Metallic
The Vintera series is where new and old worlds collide! For those striving for a traditional Fender feel with no complications, the Vintera series offers you an affordable solution to owning a guitar from the '60s era!
One of the biggest factors at play on the retro Vintera design is its mid ‘60s C shape neck. It fills the fretting hand thanks to its rounded shoulders, whilst guaranteeing smooth transition up and down the maple neck and pau ferro fretboard.
At a 7.25” radius, the fingerboard is narrow and easy to perform techniques like the wrap around thumb on the low string. It’s topped with 21 classic thin, tall frets to complete the genuine playing experience.
Fender have installed a trio of vintage '60s single coil pickups on this Vintera model. They sound crystal clear and bell-like, with a snappy, crisp response. Ideal for a breadth of genres such as blues, pop and rock. There’s plenty of room to manoeuvre using the five position switch.
You've got your hands on a classic guitar when the hardware feels this authentic. Everything from the tuners, to the six-saddle tremolo bridge and four screw bolt-on neck is vintage replica. As with all Fender guitars, the hardware is highly reliable and can take on years of playing having been made in their high-tech Mexico factory.
