Fender MIJ Traditional '50s Stratocaster in Black

Made in Japan

Fender's MIJ Traditional Series encompasses a range of vintage-inspired Fender instruments. Combining iconic looks and "Golden Era" specs with renowned Japanese craftsmanship, these time-honoured guitars and basses pay tribute to some of the most coveted music-making tools ever created!

 

This Traditional '50s Stratocaster is a real "time capsule" guitar that provides the playability and sound of Fender's earliest Strat models. From its vintage-style pickups and hardware, to its thick "U"-shaped neck and stylish 1-ply pickguard — this retro instrument is a nostalgic masterpiece that will give old-school guitar aficionados plenty of satisfying vibe.

 

Key Features

Basswood Body — Lightweight timber with balanced tonal properties. A rock-solid foundation for the trio of single-coils.

Bolt-On Construction — Produces the "snappy" note response synonymous with all Fender instruments.

"U"-Shaped Neck — Classic '50s profile provides comfortable playability with its girthy, traditional shape.

Vintage Frets — Smaller fret-wire gives your fingers reassuring contact with the fingerboard and allows you to play with plenty of control.

Fender Vintage-Style Pickups — Three single-coils deliver the vibrant "chiming" sounds that all Fender Stratocasters are adored for. 5-way switch provides a wide sonic palette too!

Vintage-Style Synchronized Tremolo — Lets you embellish chords and lead lines with smooth, expressive vibrato.

Bone Nut — Classic, low-friction material minimises unwanted tuning slips and enhances sustain.

Vintage-Style Tuners — High-quality, old-school tuning machines allow for precise string pitching.
