"The Classic Vibe Stratocaster ’50s provides unmistakable ’50s-era Fender® vibe and tone. The alder body has a two-color Sunburst; the vintage-tint gloss-maple neck has a maple fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets and a modern 9.5” radius. That long-familiar tone comes from a custom set of alnico III single-coil pickups—clear and bright, with terrific sustain even in crunch mode. Custom staggered pole pieces provide improved string-to-string balance."
The guitars from the Classic Vibe series are an outstanding value. The quality of these guitars continues to amaze, surprise, and please us. These models consistently have great necks which makes our follow up setups a breeze, and the tone quality of the pickups is so good that one might wonder rightly why their American made cousins are so much more pricey! Guitars from this series may be the best performance values Fender offers.
