Classic Vibe Stratocaster® '60s. The rough-and-tumble Classic Vibe Stratocaster® '60s evokes that musically adventurous decade, with a few modern features added. The alder body has a Three-Color Sunburst or Candy Apple Red finish; the '60s-era vintage-tint gloss-maple neck has a rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets and a modern 9.5" radius. The thick tone comes from the alnico V single-coil pickups--quick attack with a bit more midrange force and a knockout bridge pickup. Custom staggered polepieces provide improved string-to-string balance. // script> NOTICE REGARDING USE OF HISTORIC PATENT NUMBERS/MARKINGS NOTICE REGARDING USE OF HISTORIC PATENT NUMBERS/MARKINGS: FENDER is proud to offer some of the most iconic musical instruments and amplifiers of the past 60 years. Some FENDER products are intentional recreations or reissues of vintage guitars and amplifiers, and may therefore incorporate markings or text associated with original patents that have since expired. Specific examples of such models include patent numbers on the tremolo plates and decals of the JAGUAR® and JAZZMASTER® guitars, "Pat Pending" on some vintage TELECASTER® guitar bridge plates, and "Design and Circuits Patented" language on the control panels of certain model amplifiers in FENDER Vintage Modified, Vintage Reissue and Custom lines. Such markings are included only for the sake of historical accuracy, and are not intended to denote or imply live patents or ongoing patent protection.
