The Fender Classic Series takes important models, from specific eras, and recreates them for today’s players, whilst making them affordable. With its vintage styling and period-correct details, the Fender Classic Series '70s Stratocaster offers one such instrument, giving you everything that made the model popular in the 1970s.
Rare Ash Body
The world famous Strat body shape, which has been unchanged throughout the decades, is carved from ash with the Fender Classic Series '70s Stratocaster, a rarity among Strats, which are generally constructed from alder.
This model has been finished with polyester, in the classic 3 Colour Sunburst, giving the guitar a beautifully vintage vibe, especially with that beautiful ash grain showing through, and being alongside all the era-specific appointments. It really stands out amongst the stark white of the 3-ply pickguard, plastic control knobs and switch tip.
Big Head, Fat Neck
If you enjoy fat necks, you’ll really appreciate how close to an actual 1970s model Strat this is when you get your hand around its chunky, U Shape neck, which has been finished with gloss urethane. Atop this is a 7.25" (184.1 mm) radius, rosewood fingerboard with 21 vintage-style-sized frets and white dot inlays.
The fingerboard has a nut width of 1.650" (42 mm), and it is at the nut that you’ll find another era-correct detail, a bullet truss rod nut. Beyond the neck, you’ll find more 1970s details, with an oversized headstock with the '70s logo and a set of vintage-style “F” tuners.
‘70s Strat Sound
The Fender Classic Series 1970s Stratocaster is equipped with a trio of Vintage-Style Single-Coil Strat pickups, which have been specifically voiced, to give you the sound and response of their ‘70s counterparts. These are easily operated with the usual controls, comprised of: a 5-way pickup selector blade, Master Volume knob, and two Tone knobs (neck and middle).
