The Classic Vibe Stratocaster ’50s provides unmistakable ’50s-era Fender® vibe and tone. The alder body has a Two-color Sunburst, Lake Placid Blue or Olympic White finish; the vintage-tint gloss-maple neck (Two-color Sunburst and Olympic White models only) has a maple fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets and a modern 9.5” radius. That long-familiar tone comes from a custom set of alnico III single-coil pickups—clear and bright, with terrific sustain even in crunch mode. Custom staggered polepieces provide improved string-to-string balance

I sold due to medical bills anyway I got this and on time too and glad I did cause I was unsure about it
the price was great too and I match it up with the fender mustang amp,and holly cow and if your one that's looking
to get that starter guitar an amp cause with the price of the guitar let me get the amp and both came on the same day
that surprised me so for 485 cant bet it keep in mind that the guitar runs between 495 to 695
and amazon got for me and saved me some money .
... but if you buy online you are rolling the dice. My telecaster has some funky finish problems and needed a setup to be playable. This is something I am comfortable doing myself but if you have to pay for it, it can be a significant expense for someone buying a budget model guitar.
The strat I'm reviewing in this article had the following problems:
1) Some sort of tarnish on much of the chrome hardware. I thought it was actually bad chrome but I was able to remove most of the hardware from the guitar and polish it back to a shine with chrome polish.
2) One strap button was drilled in at an angle so crooked that the button did not even sit flat against the guitar. For this I had to fill the entire hole and re-drill it square.
3) The tremolo claw grounding wire solder joint was bad and had to be re-soldered because the guitar hummed like crazy. It still hums because the electronics are not well shielded/grounded and are not high end electronics to begin with but it is reasonable now.
4) The frets on my guitar are not perfect. There are many that have a bit of a gap at the edges but they are not jagged or rough so that's good.
5) The strat needed a setup too but mostly for string height and intonation not because the neck was out of whack like my telecaster.
Those items corrected I am happy with the guitar. It sounds nice both clean and overdriven and the neck is very easy to get around.
So I would recommend this guitar for the price. If you can get it in a store I think that is better because the quality varies very much from guitar to guitar and you could get a real gem if you can hand pick it.
