60's models have always been C-shape. I know, I have one

C shape, I think most, if not all, Strats from (or designed) the 60s have C shaped necks.


And, if I can make a recommendation, if you can afford the extra cash, get the Classic Players. It's Custom Shop designed, and kicks much more ass!

It depends on his style. For example, I was looking for a straight vintage Strat, so the Classic fits me better than the Classic Player. We should know what does he want exactly.

Well, fair enough. If you're looking for an exact, authentic reisuee guitar, I would get the Classic Series on. But, if you're looking for one that'll have better tuning stability (and, argubly, sound) I would get the Classic Player one.

Oh well.

Absolutely true, the Classic Players have indeed much better stock pickups, but I changed mine to handwound '62s so it's even better

But yes, if you don't need the whole vintage thing the CP's are the best choice

it's called Vintage tuners. and if you look at the specs on MF, you'll see that classic players and classic series 60's strats, have them.

notE that on that pic above the truss rod is not located on the headstock.

the neck or guard will have to be removed.

i'd post a pic of my limited ed reissue 62' deluxe players strat, but photobucket is down.

Yeah, the tuners are like that. Very very solid, hardly ever go out of tune even when I use the trem. For half the price if it's in good condition sounds like a good deal.
