Taking important models from equally important eras, the Fender Classic Series offers a taste of history for an affordable price. Fender Classic Series '70s Stratocaster takes everything that made the model popular in the 1970s and recreates it with vintage styling and period-correct details.
Rare Ash Body
A rarity in the construction of Strats, the Fender Classic Series '70s Stratocaster is made from ash, where alder would usually be used. This is carved to the classic, unchanged profile that we all know and love.
Showcasing the fantastic grain of the ash, this model has been stripped back, giving you the unadulterated, Natural finish, which has been covered in polyester to keep it gleaming for years to come. In this natural state the wood is complemented perfectly by its surrounding era-specific appointments, and the stark white of the 3-ply pickguard, plastic control knobs and switch tip.
Big Head, Fat Neck
Equipped with a thick, U Shape maple neck, as was incorporated in 1970s models, this model will really be appreciated by those who like to get a handle on their playing, it has also been finished in gloss urethane, to keep playability smooth.
A pau ferro fingerboard with a 7.25" (184.1 mm) radial measurement and 1.650" (42 mm) nut width, sits atop the neck, laid out with 21 vintage-style-sized frets and white dot inlays. It is at the top of the fingerboard where you’ll find the era-correct, bullet truss rod nut.
This leads onto the headstock, which, again, is era-correct, being oversized and adorned with the '70s logo, along with being equipped with vintage-style “F” tuners.
‘70s Strat Sound
Three Vintage-Style Single-Coil Strat pickups are equipped in the Fender Classic Series 1970s Stratocaster. These have been set up to replicate the pickups used at the time, to give you the same sound and response. They are controlled in the same way, with: a 5-way pickup selector blade, Master Volume knob, and two Tone knobs (neck and middle).
