Used And Vintage Electric Guitars

Fender's old American Vintage Series was a favorite for years - players loved the lacquer finishes, period correct pickups and overall all vintage vibe.  In 2007, they added the Hot Rod models to the lineup.  These had the same great taste, but were tweaked a bit to be a bit, with a touch of modernity.  They were an immediate hit.

This American Vintage Hot Rod '62 Stratocaster features a thin nitrocellulose lacquer-finished body, larger, "C"-shaped satin-finished neck with modern 9.5" fingerboard radius and medium jumbo frets, reverse wound/reverse polarity middle pickup, five-way switch and tone pot wired to the bridge pickup.  

This one in particular was upgraded with a set of Acrane 61 Experience pickups.  This set is a custom replica of the pickups that would be on 1961 Strat but with staggered output and reverse wound reverse polarity for hum cancelling in the 2 and 4 position. Clear and Sweet tones that are slightly brighter than the 54 Experience Set. Wound by hand in Los Angeles using only the finest components, built with select grade and tuned Alnico 5 magnets that are staggered, vintage style cloth push back wire. Black Fiber board bottoms and Wax Potted.

We rarely see these on the used market, and were thrilled to get this one in.  It's in great condition (see photos), comes with the original hardshell case, and is a great deal.  The techs in our repair shop have vetted and set up to play perfectly.  Grab it before it's gone!
