Fender 75th Anniversary Stratocaster - Diamond Anniversary
Honors Leo Fender's Bold, Revolutionary Strat
The limited-edition 75th Anniversary Stratocaster pays homage to Leo Fender's bold, revolutionary solidbody electric guitar. This superb axe includes a comfortably contoured, balanced-sounding alder body, while its satin-finished Modern "C"-shaped neck and slick-feeling 9.5-inch-radius fingerboard ensure playability that's second to none. The 75th Anniversary Strat churns out classic tones, thanks to a trio of Vintera '60s single-coil pickups, while modern 5-way switch wiring unlocks a full palette of sonic possibilities. You'll also benefit from super-stable die-cast tuners and an expressive 2-point tremolo. This head-turning Stratocaster features a light-catching gloss polyester finish and a matching headstock. An exclusive engraved 75th anniversary neck plate rounds out this collectible, limited-edition Strat.
Fast-playing Modern "C"-shaped maple neck
In keeping with contemporary player preferences, the 75th Anniversary Stratocaster sports a Player Series-derived Modern "C"-shaped maple neck and a 9.5-inch-radius fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets. The neck is finished with a smooth satin urethane 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.
Bona fide tone from classic '60s pickups
Designed as a tribute to the golden era of Strats, the Fender 75th Anniversary Stratocaster's Tim Shaw-designed Vintera '60s pickups sound as good as this solidbody electric guitar looks. These pickups feature period-correct plain enamel wire and staggered Alnico V pole pieces. When you plug your 75th Anniversary Strat into your favorite tube amplifier, you'll love the very slight bite that these pickups add to the traditional spanky Stratocaster sound. The 75th Anniversary Stratocaster's pickguard also comes loaded with a 5-way switch — a feature that the guitarists here at Sweetwater wholeheartedly appreciate.
