FENDER 60TH ANNIVERSARY STRATOCASTER COMMEMORATIVE Guitar World AUSTRALIA
Celebrate the diamond anniversary of the world's greatest electric guitar with the 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster and 60th Anniversary Classic Player '50s Stratocaster. Both are contemporary takes on the original-era Stratocaster, updated with modern features and appointments that combine the best of the past with the best of today.
When many people think of an electric guitar, this is the one that leaps to mind. The Stratocaster is an archetypal instrument - among the world's most popular guitars and an elegantly versatile creation that is both a musical and cultural touchstone. At its heart, though, the Stratocaster remains a fantastic tool - with unmistakable sound and timeless design that have made it the first choice among players worldwide, many of whom have used it to create much of the most important music of our time.
No sooner had Fender revolutionized music with the Telecaster and Precision Bass, in 1954 it introduced what is nearly universally regarded as the archetypal electric guitar; the Stratocaster. Perennially sleek, stylish, smooth playing and tonally versatile, it has transcended its role as a musical tool to become nothing short of a cultural icon. There is simply nothing that sings, screams, whispers, moans, roars, rocks and rolls like a Stratocaster!
