A Classic Alder Body

The Fender FSR Limited Edition 50s Stratocaster features a classic alder body, producing a resonant and balanced tone with plenty of clarity. It also features a comfortably light weight, letting you play all night long without straining your shoulders. The tonewood provides a decent amount of sustain, creating bright, sizzling highs, excellently rounded lows, and beefy mids. Fender have used alder as their tonewood of choice since the 1950s, as the balanced response and slight upper middle definition makes it perfect for rock and blues playing.

American Vintage ’56 Pickups

This classic Stratocaster features specifically voiced ’56 American vintage pickups, which are designed with the same spec and tooling as pickups on the 1956 model to deliver a truly vintage tone. The pickups feature Alnico III magnets and heavy Formvar wire to deliver a meaty fullness to the overall tone, giving the Stratocaster plenty of depth to play around with. Players can achieve a variety of tones using the 5-way pickup selector and controls for volume and tone.

Resonant Synthetic Bone Nut

Featuring a carefully fitted synthetic bone nut, this Limited Edition 50s Stratocaster delivers an increased resonance and bright tonality. When compared to traditional plastic and Tusq materials used to construct guitar nuts, synthetic bone improves the vibration transfer between the string and tuning machines without dampening the tone.

Limited Edition Series by Fender

Each Limited Edition guitar is only available for a short time, which makes it eminently collectible while also adding to its investment value. Crafted with many features normally reserved only for select artists and master-built instruments, these guitars are exactly what their name says - highly anticipated limited edition models.

The History of the Stratocaster

When many people think of an electric guitar, this is the one that leaps to mind. The Stratocaster is one of the world's most popular guitars and is an elegantly versatile creation. Not long after Fender revolutionised music with the Telecaster and the Precision Bass, in 1954 they debuted the Stratocaster and it quickly became universally regarded as the archetypal electric guitar. Sleek and stylish aesthetics, smooth playing and tonally versatile, at the heart the Stratocaster remains a fantastic instrument - producing unmistakable sound with a timeless design. A first choice among players worldwide, there is simply nothing that sings, screams, whispers, moans, roars, rocks and rolls like a Fender Stratocaster.
