Fat and full of flavour
Luscious tones. The three Strat Fat '60s in the neck, middle and bridge positions are real treasures. Boasting the most pristine note articulation, your riffs will glisten with clarity, punch, and bite.

Notes in chords will pop out, whilst lead lines will sing with character – you'll be unstoppable.
The middle Fat '60s offers a beautiful balance between the neck and bridge pickups. It will give your licks a rich, twangy, defined voice and tonnes of flair. Then there's the neck pickup. It explodes with passion when your switch to it, giving your notes beefy low end punch and a soaring tone. With it, you'll be able to make your solos fly to the skies, with a rich, rewarding sound and unbelievable definition. With these pickups pumping out stellar tone, you'll always have a smile on your face playing the 1960 Stratocaster.
The neck of dreams
A life of luxury. There's nothing quite like having a Custom Shop neck in your hands, knowing it is one of the finest you will ever lay fingers on. The sweet, sleek, smooth quarter-sawn maple neck on this pristine guitar is of the highest quality. Custom made with the finest attention to detail you can imagine, it offers you everything you could ever desire – smooth fret transitions, comfortable grip, and a beautiful, bright resonance. You'll be able to express yourself cleanly and with complete accuracy all along the fretboard, and your licks will gimmer with clarity.
Make the wood sing. The luscious rosewood fretboard of this guitar truly stands out as a masterpiece. It is incredibly smooth and responsive, with a satisfying resonance to go with it. Your notes will be imbued with a touch of warmth and flavour to give them that extra flair, and your licks will flow into each other like rivers. With this, you can conquer any musical challenge.
For the performers
It's not all about supreme sound and stunning looks. The 1960 Strat is also decked out with an array of premium hardware for everlasting performance and durability. The Vintage Strat bridge holds your strings in place indefinitely, meaning they'll always sing in tune when you play them. There's some slick vintage tuners with the Fender logo proudly emblazoned on, and the Vintage Upgraded '60s tremolo arm will let you introduce flair to your licks. Offering the best guitar playing experience you could hope for, this is the full package. With a stunning candy apple red finish, it looks as good as it sounds.
