Description

Details

The Fender 2018 Limited Edition Whiteguard Strat Guitar in Vintage Blonde combines the playing and looks of a Strat, but has the guts and voice of a Tele'. For those who've always fancied a bit of both, then the Whiteguard Strat will be right up your street.

Classic Strat style

The Whiteguard Strat is shaped to the instantly recognisable double-cutaway body shape that we've all come to know and love. The sleek curvature of the body is paired with a slender depth and bevelled edges that establish a comfortable figure-hugging feel that is unlike any other.

Built using ash, the Whiteguard Strat boasts a tonal character that puts greater emphasis on midrange warmth than that of the usual alder. However, the body still feels lightweight and easy to use, whilst the gloss nitrocellulose lacquer allows the vintage blonde finish to age gracefully. The custom-shaped white pickguard is an obvious departure from the usual Strat' style, but then it lends itself perfectly to enhancing the charms of this awesome hybrid model.

Supportive maple neck

Paired with the body is a sleek maple neck shaped to the modern "C" profile for a rapid-fire playability. The satin-lacquered finish along the back minimises build up, so that you can run your hand along without being impeded. Married to the neck is a bright-sounding maple fingerboard that ensures each note pops out with stunning clarity. The 9.5-inch radius makes a flatter surface, which combines beautifully with the 22 narrow tall frets to promote seamless string bends along its entire length. The black dot position inlays aid in your navigation along the neck, so that each performance is a joy from start to finish.

Classic Tele' twang

The 2018 Limited Edition Whiteguard Strat is equipped with a pair of Fender Custom Shop '51 Nocaster bridge pickups. These pickups produce a classic Tele' character with plenty of bite and a sparkling twang. With an emphasis on vintage tones, the Nocasters have a smooth midrange that responds heartily to the dynamics of your playing style. Whether you're fingerpicking, hybrid picking, flatpicking, or chicken pickin', each note will ring out brilliantly.

The control layout matches that of a Tele', with a simple master volume and master tone combination with matching 3-way pickup selector switch set across a single chrome plate.

Gig-ready appointments

The body is home to the 3-saddle strings-through-body Tele' bridge with compensated brass saddles, which create a seamless connection between strings and body for optimised intonation and sustain. The 6-screw mounting with removable modern "Ashtray" bridge cover elevates the vintage vibe. The headstock is home to deluxe staggered cast/sealed tuning machines with

Each Fender 2018 Limited Edition Whiteguard Strat Guitar in Vintage Blonde is supplied with an elite moulded case, and strung with Fender USA strings to get you off to a flying start.
