The Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s provides unmistakable '50s-era Fender vibe and tone. The alder body has a Two-Color Sunburst, Lake Placid Blue or Olympic White finish. The vintage-tint gloss-maple neck (Two-Color Sunburst and Olympic White models only) has a maple fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets and a modern 9.5" radius. That long-familiar tone comes from a custom set of alnico III single-coil pickups, clear and bright, with terrific sustain even in crunch mode. Custom staggered polepieces provide improved string-to-string balance.
