Product Description

Color: Surf Green

The Classic Series '50s Stratocaster guitar epitomizes the vibe of the '50s. The color selection alone - Surf Green, Daphne Blue and Fiesta Red - takes you back to the era of diners, Ike and cars with fins. With a maple freeboard, tinted neck, single-ply pickguard and aged plastic parts, it's authentically retro, and the three single-coil pickups with staggered alnico magnet pole pieces deliver that unmistakable '50s Stratocaster sound.

I've always played Telecasters and have 3 of them and love them, always wanted a Strat that I could get that old time twang out of and this one is it!

This guitar is beautiful, plays like a dream come true, sounds great and is really comfortable to play standing up or sitting down.

Color Name: daphne blue Verified Purchase
I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this guitar. I have American Tele and Strat to compare to and this Mexican Strat rates close to them. The finish is remarkable in Daphne Blue. Other than a little set up work out of the box the guitar well exceeds my expectations.

Color Name: 2 tone sunburst Verified Purchase
This guitar is beautiful, plays like a dream come true, sounds great and is really comfortable to play standing up or sitting down. Ideal, like all Stratocasters, for fingerpicking too. I have a Les Paul I have had for years, a Telecaster from the 1970s, finally I have selected my Strat and it is my favorite electric, by far. I love the surf green, really nice and exactly what I have been flirting with for years. When I recently saw Stephen Stills with a green stratocaster on stage, that did it, I made my selection! I feel like this is a lot of guitar for the money, and it came set up perfectly! Fender's Mexico factory is really putting out some good, good quality stuff and I love the way it was set up! This green is awesome, and if you like green like I do, get it!! Sounds and looks very much like a late 1950s Strat! I went out on a limb and decided to go for the slick maple neck and fingerboard, over the years I have been a rosewood/ebony fingerboard man, and, I must admit I really like slick maple, very comfortable! The review says Sunburst, but what I have is the surf green! I love the surf green color!!!!!

Color Name: daphne blue Verified Purchase
If you're looking for a guitar that gives you that great '50's sound, this is the one! The only adjustment I made was raising the back two pickups to match the factory specs, other than that, nothing! Great looking guitar also, I got the daphne blue and love it, the color is a good bit lighter than the picture though.
Such a comfortable guitar to play, is light and the contoured body is awesome and lays against me like a glove. I've always played Telecasters and have 3 of them and love them, always wanted a Strat that I could get that old time twang out of and this one is it! The neck and the slick finish are great, fingers easy and the bending potential is incredible! Super quality here also, I can't find anything wrong anywhere on this guitar and believe me, I go over them with a fine toothed comb! Tremolo bar is sick, love it and the look is great, works like it should, never messing up the tuning.
I could go on and on but I will just say that, for the money, you can go wrong here,

Color Name: surf green
Young musicians drool over the guitars of the fifties. Well, so do we older ones -- but we do it with fond memories; with fingers, eyes and ears that remember the glory of those instruments and what they meant in our lives.

I, for instance have been playing guitar since about 1962. Back then if a new guitar was too expensive for a young player we'd look for something a few years old -- and that brought us back into the fifties.

How many of us kick ourselves for selling that special first "good" guitar -- looking to trade up to something new? How many of us dream of getting our hands on such an instrument again today?

Well now we can! Thank you Fender!

The Classic Series `50s Stratocaster is the real thing. Doubt that? Just put one in the hands of an old rocker like me!

Seeing one and playing one for the first time, in my case a brand spankin' new, just out of the showroom, just out of the case, `50s Stratocaster in Surf Green was like getting into Mr. Well's time machine. I plugged her into an early `60s Tremolux, turned on the power and... and... wailed.

This is the real thing. The fingerboard tells me so. The bright, sparkling, tones told me so.

So did the buzz and hum. Off with those danged curlycue florescent lights. (If God meant us to use those things he wouldn't have invented Thomas Edison)

In truth a Classic Series `50s Strat is not for everyone. Higher gain PUs were invented for a purpose. So were larger radius finger boards and more advanced two pivot-point floating vibratos. But if you want to be able to create the sound and vibes of early rock -- the music of Buddy Holly for instance,, or of any number of surf bands, this is the way to go.

I was born in 1954 and saw Cream live at Santa Monica civic auditorium and Jimi Hendrix at the Hollywood Bowl. My dream guitar just arrived from Mexico of all places. Everything is perfect. It was almost in tune. Actually it was tuned a half step down like Hendrix. No complaints from me.

Color Name: daphne blue Verified Purchase
I felt like a kid on Christmas, seeing this guitar out of the packaging and on my guitar stand. Fender really got it right with this one, and the attention to detail is amazing. My guitar was set up with a nice low action right out of the box, and was almost in tune, which tells me it hasn't been subjected to much throwing around or storage here and there.

After a quick tune, I went through a few chord progressions and scales, and didn't encounter any fret buzzing or dulls spots. The daphne blue finish isn't as dark as the picture you see here on Amazon, so you might want to check out some pictures on Google to get an average estimation on color. I'm actually cool with the lighter tone of blue, as it looks even more vintage and makes the neck stand out more prominently.

Overall, just a gorgeous guitar that should definitely be a part of your collection.
