Very cool and near mint Fender American Original '60s Stratocaster in Shell Pink! Very cool finish with the mint green pickguard to offset it nicely. The guitar plays very well with the 9.5" radius and sounds excellent. Comes with the original hardshell case and all the case candy as shown.
If you're looking for a '60s-inspired Strat with modern convenience and playability, look no further than the Fender American Original '60s Stratocaster. This guitar tips its hat to Transition-era Strats of 1965, with a chunky "C" neck profile, a rosewood fretboard, pearloid dot inlays, and a mint green pickguard. The American Original '60s Strat's 9.5" fretboard radius will please today's lead players, while its period-correct Pure Vintage '65 pickups and contemporary 5-way switching are sure to please vintage tone aficionados. Aged pickup covers and controls give the Fender American Original '60s Stratocaster a classic played-in look.
Chunky "C" neck with a modern fingerboard radius
This Strat's '60s-era "C" neck profile is suited for all playing styles. It's a little chunkier than the modern Fender "C," but still contoured, for both thumb-behind and thumb-over players. Where the American Original '60s Strat has the advantage over a classic '65 is its enlarged 9.5" (from 7.25") fingerboard radius, which allows for upper-register leads and bends with less risk of fretting out.
Pure Vintage '65 pickups
This Strat's Pure Vintage '65 gray bottom single-coils are as period correct as they come, from the fiber bobbins and Alnico V magnets right down to the enamel-coated coil wire and cloth-covered output wires. Wax potting keeps feedback and icepicks to a minimum, while contemporary 5-way switching unlocks in-between tones that are impossible on a true '65.
Classic nitro-finished alder body
This Strat's lightweight, resonant alder body retains its full tonal characteristics thanks to a nitrocellulose lacquer finish. This is just another reason why, for classic inspiration and modern playability.
