The Fender Vintage Hot Rod 50s Stratocaster Fiesta Red is a perfect example of what Fender® do so well, mixing the old with the new. With the new Vintage Hot Rod series, Fender® have kept all of the charm and aesthetics of vintage Fender® instruments with the usability and feel of a much more modern guitar.

The Fender Vintage Hot Rod 50s Stratocaster Fiesta Red guitar gives you the best Strat tone, style and performance of both eras. Authentic vintage style design touches straight from the 1950s and hot rodded modern mods ideal for today’s players.

The Fender Vintage Hot Rod 50s Stratocaster Fiesta Red features an ash body and maple neck with a comfortable "D" shaped profile. The neck has a vintage style heel end truss rod adjustment, and satin back finish. What brings the neck right up to date is the compound-radius (7.25"-12") maple fingerboard with 21 6105 frets. The neck also features a bone nut and gloss finish to the fingerboard. Singing tone comes from an American Vintage single-coil '59 Stratocaster neck pickup and single-coil '56 Stratocaster middle pickup, and a Texas Special single-coil Stratocaster bridge pickup. In addition to five-way blade pickup switching, an S-1 switch adds the bridge pickup to pickup switch positions 3, 4 and 5. This really bulks out the tonality of this classic looking Strat making it a bit of a wolf in sheep's clothing!

Other features include a single-ply white pickguard, three aged white control knobs (master volume, tone 1, tone 2), two-point synchronized tremolo with vintage-style stamped steel saddles (chrome cover included), vintage-style locking tuners and locking strap buttons. Includes upgraded deluxe vintage-style tweed case, vintage-style 8' cable, vintage-style black strap, extra tremolo springs and wrenches.

If you're looking for a Strat that does it all with timeless looks then the Fender® Vintage Hot Rod 50s Stratocaster Fiesta Red has to be on your short list.
