Classic Strat with acid-house-inspired styling
Though the original Stratocaster was first introduced more than 60 years ago, it's unquestionably more popular now than ever. The 30th-anniversary Screamadelica Stratocaster combines the Strat's iconic, sleek, elegant lines with a color palette and a graphic based on the hallucinogenic water spot artwork from Primal Scream's 1991 breakthrough, Screamadelica. This Strat boasts a classic comfort-contoured alder body, finished in gloss polyester, and is crowned with a painted plastic pickguard.
Hot-wound '60s Strat tone
If you appreciate classic Strat tone, you’ll love the Fender 30th-anniversary Screamadelica Stratocaster. Its hot-wound single-coils are dead ringers for 1960s-era pickups, but — as we quickly discovered here — they have enough output to spank the front end of a modern amplifier. These pickups boast enamel-coated wire and flat-top Alnico V magnets, achieving a glassy, bell-like sound with a dub symphony of chime and clarity. What’s more, you get a 5-way switch that gives you more tonal options than a traditional 3-way switch.
Fast-playing Modern "C" maple neck
In keeping with contemporary player preferences, the 30th-anniversary Screamadelica Strat sports a comfortable Modern "C"-shaped maple neck and a 9.5-inch-radius fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets. The neck is finished with a smooth polyurethane for a sleek, fast feel. With its sleek body contours and highly playable neck, it's no wonder that the Fender Stratocaster has remained one of the most popular guitars on the planet for decades.
