Embracing the Spirit of the 60s: Fender's Musical Legacy

The 1960s marked a transformative era for the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation. As the "Summer of Love" unfolded, Fender instruments became the emblematic sound of this global cultural shift. From the Beatles to the Yardbirds and the legendary Jimi Hendrix, the Fender Stratocaster was the go-to guitar for successful music groups. In 1966, Fender introduced the third main version of the standard Strat with a rosewood fretboard on a maple neck and a larger headstock. This larger headstock, a defining feature of CBS-era Stratocasters, allowed for a more prominent logo decal. Now, we bring you our take on this historical gem with a fresh package that pays homage to this remarkable period in music history.
