Product Description

The Fender Road Worn '50s Stratocaster is an electric guitar that delivers killer aged looks, feel, and mojo without breaking the bank. The '50s Road Worn Strat was designed using 1950s specs augmented by Tex-Mex pickups and 6105 frets.

Like classic cars or your favorite T-shirt, some things just get cooler with age. It's especially true of electric guitars. They develop an unmistakable mojo over time that makes them look even cooler and feel even more comfortable than when they were new. In that regard, the Fender Road Worn '50s Stratocaster is a true player.

I have a 50s road worn Strat--Black. Bottom line is it is a great value and loads of fun. Lots of people seem to think it is an overpriced beat up made in mexico standard strat. That is simply not true. Though made in Mexico, it is a lot different than the MiM Strat - a completely different guitar. The differences are huge too. First, Fender was brilliant and put 6105 frets that have a great feel and bend great. Second, these have Tex Mex pick-ups with the middle one reverse wound. That means in position 2 and 4 there is a lot less pick up noise. These pickups are a lot hoter than the MiM pickups and the different tones (all authentic Fender) you get from this guitar are amazing. Lastly, they look really cool and feel great to play. I love the relic look and to find something worn in this good on the market is near impossible without paying a huge premium. The only issue I have is the bridge pickup (not controlled by the trebble on the guitar -- another 50s feature) is very bright for my taste. This can be easily mitigated. Beyond the very cool 50s relic look and feel, you really get very different sounds from each of the pick up combinations. If blues is your thing this guitar will make your day,and this guitar rocks quite well also. The quality of the guitar is also excellent. Here is the deal, if you want a classic/ antique looking and sounding strat this is a great compromise. A genuine 50s strat will run you over ten grand and will most likely have issues. A new custom shop relic will also be a few grand. This guitar is a great alternative, looks old and sounds great and will last you a long time. I rate this a high value for what you get and unlike some, I think this was a great idea by Fender to put this product out at this price point. If you have any playing skill at all, you will immediately notice that this is NOT a MiM standard in any shape or form and to compare this to a MiM Standard is beyond ridiculous. So from SVR to to Jimmie Hendrix to Ritchie Blackmore to Eric Clapton and everything in between, this guitar has the mojo and you will great playing it too!

.If you wanted to take this guitar from me, you would have to pry it from my cold, life-less fingers. I love this thing a heckuva lot. It really is phenomenal. You should get one before they wind up discontinuing these things.
This guitar (Fender 50's Roadworn Stratocaster) has all the features you need. The nitro finish makes it sound better. I don't care what anyone says. The fact that Fender didn't dunk this ax into plastic-like paint allows for the tone to bleed through the heart of the guitar. Tremolo is sturdy. Tuners are solid. (3) very hot Tex-Mex pickups and an amazingly comfortable v-neck. I don't know what else you would want in a Strat. This thing bleeds vintage.
Quality, so far, is very impressive. It is a solid guitar, and because it is already beat to heck, I don't worry about if it gets bumped or bruised. That just adds to the character. This guitar seems like it can really take a beating. MIM Fenders are definitely where it's at.
Maybe a little higher on price than I would like, but I really can't complain. This might be my favorite guitar that I own. Seriously. And I own a Thinline Tele, a Gibson LP, and a super-sweet Epiphone Sheraton. I love all of those guitars very very much, but I think this one takes the cake. See the features above. The features really make this guitar special. The tex-mex's and the finish. Not to mention the fact that the neck feels so worn in and comfortable.

.OK, heres the deal, this guitar is great for the buck, the nitro finish is nice and thin, worn off in places and looks great. The thin nitro finish really lets the guitar resonate much better than heavier urethane finishes do, the pickups are great as is the rest of the hardware. I've been a guitar tech & guitar builder for a 40+ years (yeah I'm old) and am a huge Fender fan, this guitar is a total winner from stem to stern, buy one ..... I bought 2 and one of the teles as well !

.Like any Fender guitar, finding the right individual guitar is the key. From my experiences, the quality of Fender's guitars varies widely, regardless of cost. My 2008 Road Worn 2-tone sunburst 50's Strat is amazingly wonderful. The action and tone are fabulous. The neck is very comfortable (a bit beefy, the way I like 'em), and the tone is the most realistic Vintage/SRV tone I have found on any Fender guitar. As far as looks, mine is beautiful in fit and finish. Tight neck pocket, nicely figured and laminated alder body, beautiful nitro paint job, nice neck tinting, etc. I have compared the simulated neck and body wear of mine to photos of naturally worn genuine vintage Strats, and mine is VERY accurate looking. However, I have seen some of the more recently built models, and the neck wear looks completely different, and not anywhere near as realistic, as if after the first year or two Fender got lazy and did'nt put as much effort into the neck relicing. Mine is a first year of production model, and it looks like they were trying to put thier best foot forward to encourage sales of the new Road Worn line. If you find a good one, like I did, this guitar is, IMHO worth MORE than it's price, as compared to lesser American and even Custom Shop Strats with much higher prices that I've seen and played. I play Blues, and this guitar really shines with it's tone, action and looks!

.I was at first a little disappointed that it wasn't more beat up looking- you know heavy relic looking like you just dug it up from the guitar cemetery. Other than that I couldn't be more pleased. It plays great and sounds great. I really like the smaller neck. I am a very electric guitar blues player. I am 60 years old and have paid my dues. I currently own and play 17 electric guitars; 7 which are strats. This is a keeper and a real steal. There ain't nothing wrong with playing a MIM guitar. If you are thinking about getting one of these do so.

.i tried my best to find things i didnt like about this thing and i came up with two things
1. not as much wear as i would have liked to have seen
2. when i buy an expensive new guitar i expect to get a case with it.

okay i tried my best to complain about this thing and thats seriously all i could come up with... thats it. the sound is perfect, the tone is perfect, the feel is perfect even the weight is perfect. in short its perfect. i had to dig really deep to find things i didnt like and even then look at my reasons... not enough wear? no case? the only things i could find are borderlining ridiculous. seriously, buy this thing i personally guarantee you wont regret it

.I like these guitars overall, Fender does a completely realistic job of aging them - they do genuinely look and feel like old, worn guitars. The only thing about this guitar i really found to be a problem, that i disliked in a big way, was the frets. "jumbo" frets have gotten high to the point of being ridiculous. Its possible the guitar i received did not get any fret work at all, and thats why they are so unuseable - either way is unacceptable, and a black mark against the product. I gave it an overall high rating because otherwise, i found the guitar to be great, and i have repaired the unuseable frets.

.I played one of these in the local Guitar Center, and I have to admit... I was BEYOND impressed. It actually sounds like a strat. The only thing I don't like about the guitar is that neck pickup is a little more brighter than I like. But luckily we have the power of swapping pickups, right? Anywho, the road worn feel actually does make it feel broken in. I wouldn't really call it a faulty thing, but you could sand a little bit more off to make it seem more "relic" like. And believe it or not, the neck is pretty thin. I have no idea what the radius is, but it can't be a 9.5! I'm gonna get this strat after I get my Gibson, and I know that I'll be investing my money pretty well when I do.
Fender Road Worn '50s Stratocaster Electric Guitar Black
.This is a solidly built guitar and I LOVE how the neck feels. I also own a Highway 1, so I'm going to compare the two: hands down, I favor the Highway 1. The Highway 1 just resonates the tone much better; the Road Worn doesn't carry it quite as well, but does alright...it's all taste anyway, right? Okay...that being said, the two guitars sound almost identical coming out of my VM Deluxe or my Vox: they both sound GREAT!! If I weren't so used to the Highway 1, I'd be writing a GLOWING review of this guitar. If you like the way it looks and think you'd like a Strat: buy it, you won't be let down. One other thing, though: the "road worn" detail is great in some ways, but the way they wore the neck is confusing. There's almost no wear on some parts of it, and it's completely without finish in other parts; I doubt it would wear in that way in reality. However, it looks cool and it sounds great, and if you think that this guitar would motivate you to rock out, go for it. The amplified tone has that classic Fender "bell-like" warmth in the neck and mid pickups, and produces a savory twang at the bridge. This is a versatile choice, as all Stratocasters are.
Fender Road Worn '50s Stratocaster Electric Guitar Black
.Two things leap out to me about this mostly excellent instrument:
1. The fret ends were finished quite rough on the guitar I received, mostly on the treble side. A jeweler's file fixed the problem, and since it is already "relicked", I wasn't particularly worried about roughing up the side of the neck.
2. This guitar plays and, most importantly, SOUNDS like a 1950s vintage Fender Stratocaster. I used to own a real road-worn 1959 Strat with maple neck, and I can attest that this MiM replica truly gets it. Play it through a small Fender vintage tube amp (like a Champ) or even a newer USA-made solid state Fender Bronco amp (which I now use), and I found that you can truly attain that classic early '70s Eric Clapton tone - you know, kind of biting and "crunchy" - with this amazing recreation. The Fender Tex-Mex pickups do indeed deliver on this axe!
