The Fender Vintera 70s Stratocaster shows us exactly why the Strat was so crucial to the success of these classic rock icons. Equipped with period-correct electronics, and a heritage Fender construction - the Vintera 70s Strat takes us back to one of the greatest periods in rock 'n' roll history.
Equipped with a trio of '70s single-coil pickups, a distinctively vintage tone flourishes with every note you play. So you can recreate the sound of the iconic era, in your own unique style. The Vintera series focuses beyond just the sound of the guitar, though. An early '70s "C"-shaped neck, combined with a sleek pau ferro fretboard, ensures that the guitar feels just as good as it sounds. Topped off with a vintage style tremolo for a truly expressive performance, the Vintera Strat brings new life to a definitive era of rock 'n' roll.
