Fender Stratocaster Time Machine – 60 STRATOCASTER NOS Electric Guitar Review :: Fender Electric Guitar Reviews

A detailed recreation of its Kennedy-era ancestor.

musical instruments image

The ’60 Fender STRATOCASTER NOS guitar is a detailed recreation of its Kennedy-era ancestor and it features an alder body, ’60s C-shaped maple neck, and—for the first time in its history—a smaller truss rod and slab laminated rosewood fingerboard with clay dot markers. The pickup design of this fender strat is faithful to the original right down to the materials and winding, producing a characteristically smooth and glassy tone. Under the hood, the finish undercoating and the crude pickup-wiring routing in the body were replicated. This electric guitar has been given the New Old Stock (NOS) treatment—built (from original tooling) as if bought new in its respective model year and just found today. Looks like a brand new axe, brought by time machine direct from 1960.
