As with many other vintage instruments, Fender Stratocasters from the company's 60's golden era are some of the most iconic and sought after instruments around, and those finished in Fender Custom Colours are among the rarest and most expensive. The Fender Vintera 60s Stratocaster in Ice Blue Metallic is an honest and accurate take on a vintage custom colour Stratocaster without the price tag.
The Vintera Stratocaster features a typical mid 60's C profile neck paired with a 7.25" fingerboard with 21 frets, which stay true to the thinner and taller profile of the originals for an authentic vintage feel. Along with the playability, Fender have perfectly captured the bell-like chime of original 60's Strats, with a trio of redesigned single coil pickups which can comfortably straddle any genre. The full range of Fender Vintera instruments offer a new selection of vintage inspired finishes, with this model featuring an ultra cool Ice Blue Metallic custom colour original introduced by Fender in 1965. Other features include vintage style tuners, a period correct mint 3 ply pick guard and a deluxe Fender gig bag.
The Fender Vintera range is the epitome of vintage style for the modern era, combining exceptional craftsmanship, and attention to detail with an affordable price point, exceptional playability, and timeless tone.
