The Fender Classic Series 70s Stratocaster MN Electric Guitar in Natural is a truly mesmerising model that embodies everything that we’ve come to know and love from the enigmatic instrument. Introduced in the 1950s, the Stratocaster has been at the heart of musical innovation, helping to pave the way for rock ‘n’ roll. However, when Jimi Hendrix got hold of one in the 1970s, a new era of ground-breaking guitar mastery came to the fore, cementing the ‘70s Strat’s place in musical folklore.
Classic ergonomic design
The popularity of the Stratocaster is due in no small part to the sleek contours and curves of the carefully executed double-cutaway body shape, which establishes a feeling of familiarity from the start. Whether you sling it high or low, the Strat always feels “just right”. The lightweight yet tonally dynamic ash tonewood breathes with a hearty mid-range engine, generating a stirring energy to play with. The natural finish is protected by coating of polyester to allow it to age gracefully.
Sleek maple neck and fingerboard
Joined to the body is a heavenly maple neck, which is shaped to a substantial yet manageable “U”-shape profile with smooth gloss urethane finish. The generous 25.5-inch scale length affords a consistent feel across the strings whilst ensuring a brilliant response with marvellous tonal clarity. Married to the neck is a sumptuous maple fingerboard, which is home to 21 vintage-style frets that are adorned with black dot position inlays to guide your way in style. At the top of the neck you’ll find a classic oversized headstock with ‘70s logo.
The Classic Series ‘70s Strat is equipped with a classic setup composed of a trio of Vintage-Style single-coil Strat’ pickups. A 5-position pickup switch accompanies a master volume control, with independent tone controls for the neck and middle pickups for elaborate tone-shaping to suit any musical style.
Fitted to the body of the Classic Series ‘70s Strat is a 6-saddle vintage-style synchronised tremolo, which encourages deft control over vibrato for smooth and seamless playing dynamics. Fender vintage “F” stamped tuning machines uphold tuning integrity dutifully, whilst a deluxe gig bag allows you to get out and about to gigs without delay.
