Yaaay! Just got this Fender Strat, it from the classic player 50's series. I bought it used for about half the price of a new one, its from 06 or 07. Its got a few dents, dust and scratches but its in overall great condition!

Its custom shop designed MiM strat in a 2-color sunburst with 'aged-looking' pickup covers and knobs.

- Its made of alder with a maple 'soft-v' shape neck with a 9,5" radius
- 21 jumbo frets
- Features 3 USA vintage strat singlecoil pickups
- Vintage 2 point bridge
- Locking tuners!

This is my first 'real' fender guitar, my other guitars are a Classic vibe tele 50's and an Epi Les Paul standard, and this one just blows them away! The pickups sounds great, so crystal clear and sparkly, and the v shape neck, alhough differet is great, the neck is laquered and really smooth. Its adjusted for 0.10 strings with a very low action and has great playability! I love it!

Anyway, nice guitar and HNGD! Have fun playing with it for 50 years and then give it to your kids or something to let the guitar last a whole century

I love a 2 tone burst w/ maple fretboards on strats.

Had no idea they laquered the neck?? I figured it was urethane

you're not gonna want to take a dump in a gross, off-colored, vintage toilet. you want something that is white and pearly; something that shines. something that you can put your cheeks against and say, "f*** yeah"

I know its not>< :P The seller told me the original had fallen off so he bought a new knob.. I figure i can just go buy one thats aged like the others so make it perfect

But thanks guys!

Oh and it has locking tuners! Never had those before but its actually quite nice, i find them way easier to restring

Nice guitar, I've had the Classic Player 60s Strat for a couple of years now. I hope you will be as pleased with yours as I am with mine. Really nice guitars that don't really need any upgrading.

what's up with the trem. vintage fender trems are 6 screw they didn't start using 2 points until 1987. otherwise looks nice.

The fender story is that the classic player 50's series was designed by the custom shop with all their favourite features.. maybe they just prefer 2 point tremolos :P
