Vintera '50s Stratocaster Modified 2019 Daphne Blue S-1 Switch! + Bag 12034
This is a 2019 Fender Vintera '50s Stratocaster Modified in the very desirable Daphne Blue finish. The guitar looks and plays amazing. Fender went for a vintage/modern hybrid with this guitar and it has a mix of features you won't find on any other Strat. It has a modern C-shape neck with 9.5" radius and medium-jumbo frets, with a soft satin feel to back of neck. The pickups have been juiced for more output, and Fender fit it with an S-1 switch for extra pickup combinations.
Vintage appointments include a 2-point tremolo with vintage style saddles, single-ply pick guard and vintage finish. Spaghetti logo on headstock along with some vintage style locking tuners. Cosmetically, it's 9/10. Couple small marks (see pics) and frets are very good with just some mild grooves just starting on first three frets. Comes with tremolo bar, gigbag, and factory papers. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!
What You Get
-- Full setup, cleaning, and new strings.
-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.
-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.
All setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
VINTAGE STYLE FOR THE MODERN ERA
For players who appreciate the mojo of the past matched to contemporary features, we created the Vintera ‘50s Stratocaster Modified. Blending classic looks with a modern neck profile and fingerboard radius, hotter pickups and updated electronics, this guitar packs a surprising amount of power under the hood.
Three Hot ‘50s Strat® single-coil pickups; neck/mid and bridge tone controls
Modern C”-shaped neck with satin back finish; 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets
S-1 switch adds neck pickup to positions 1 & 2
Includes deluxe gig bag
For modern Fender tone we re-voiced the trio of single-coil Stratocaster pickups, kicking things up a bit by increasing the output. Crisp and articulate, they have the power you need for any style of music. The “Modern C”-shaped neck has a 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets, for modern playing feel. A contemporary, two-point synchronized tremolo with vintage-style bent-steel saddles offers rock-solid performance and tuning stability. The S-1™ switch adds the neck pickup in positions 1 and 2, unlocking even more tonal variety. Other features include vintage-style locking tuning machines, vintage-style strap buttons and chrome hardware. Includes a deluxe gig bag.
A classic Fender tone wood, alder’s sound is balanced with equal doses of lows, mids and highs.
“MODERN C” NECK PROFILE
The “Modern C”-shaped profile is designed for comfort and performance, while the smooth satin back finish makes it play even faster.
HOT ‘50S STRAT® PICKUPS
We redesigned this guitar’s pickups. They’re packed with the bell-like, highly articulate tone that made Fender famous—only hotter.
Comfortable for chording and single-note playing alike, the 9.5”-radius fingerboard offers modern feel thanks to its medium-jumbo frets, while also making wide bends easier in the upper registers.
TWO-POINT SYNCHRONIZED TREMOLO
An updated design, this two-point tremolo offers proper intonation, full adjustability and easy access to cool vibrato sounds.
The S-1 switch adds the neck pickup to positions one and two, accessing previously unavailable tones, or the power of all three pickups cranking simultaneously.
