Fender Classic Series 50s Stratocaster, MN, Daphne Blue
The Strat Classic Series features an alder body, producing balanced, resonant tones with great clarity and bite-sized midrange ideal for the versatile musician.
The tone alder wood provides a good amount of sustain, creating bright, sizzling highs, beautifully rounded lows, and a beefy midrange.
Fender have used alder as their tonewood of choice since the 1950s, as the balanced response and slight upper mid definition is perfect for playing blues and rock.
Smooth » V » maple fingerboard and neck
The Classic 50s Strat features a smooth » V » neck profile, taking the pronounced edge of the classic » V » profile found on 1950s models and softening it up to create more rounded shape. This profile offers distinct comfort for hand wear and tear and is ideal for players with large hands whose thumb extends over the edge of the fingerboard.
The tonal maple wood provides the Fender with a nicely bright characteristic, hardening the overall tones and delivering plenty of cut and bite.
Using maple for the neck and fingerboard provides players with a strong, clear punch when strings are heavily affected, while vintage light to medium highlights the more subtle tones of the maple.
