A completely dialed-in vintage Strat!

The best of old and new Fender craftsmanship creates a fantastic guitar built for the serious player! Fender starts with a Vintage American '62 Stratocaster and adds a list of sought-after Custom Shop upgrades: top-of-the-line thin-skin nitrocellulose lacquer finish; larger, vintage C-shape neck profile with satin-finish back, 9.5" fingerboard radius, medium-jumbo frets; a reverse-wound, reverse-phase middle pickup for noise-canceling; and the second tone control is wired to bridge pickup. The rest is true-blue '62 Strat: comfort-contoured alder body, Fender/Gotoh vintage-style tuners, mint green pickguard, and chrome hardware.

The U.S. Vintage Hot Rod Series from Fender offers new instruments with the looks, specs, and features that make them feel as if you were the third owner of a vintage instrument.

Comments about Fender American Vintage Hot Rod '62 Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

Okay, so the guitar is beautiful and awesome and truly sounds great. However, I returned it because I have small hands and this neck is really fat. So, if you have small hands, make sure you actually try and play this guitar before you buy it!!!
