Fender Vintage Hot Rod '57 Strat
Guitar Factory in the United States (although it is necessary to specify this?)
moultes banality stratodes are waiting for you
5-way switch, 1 volume knob, tone knob 2
A bit too mechanical in the retro trip (long live the mechanisms blocking the y'en but not too much so do not overdo the vibrato and bends mega)
Red paint (candy apple red) Cellulose trs vintage but it does not dsacorde guitar and gives a little look SIMPATIE.
The knobs and pickups are crme caches, with the white plate is an unspeakable ugliness but hey, it's been vintage, must justify the name.

the banalities finally passes, that's the most interesting
to the microphones: 2 Samarium Cobalt Noiseless pickups (low medium)
DiMarzio Tonezone 1 (acute)
electronics is equipped with a visibly Noiseless trs n'altre not effective and sound.

It's not a lot, you think so? try this guitar and all the other strata of series in this price range at the corner store you'll see ...


The handle is pleasant trs. I am a regular sized sleeves instead of D, it tends to be the size in V. Bizard the first time but got used to it quickly saw the comfort. It becomes a real pleasure to play on this set.
Access in acute ais is like any strat, but now the question is, why does the stick that 21 cargo you it ??... There's vintage, because in the name?

For sound, it sounds strat, it's plug and play, roll my chicken it sounds deadly.


While the level is super simple. It's a Start with a bit more of her (just enough to make a difference)
From jazz to hard rock, all styles will pass without pb.
Blues, funk, soul, blues, rock (even FM) Grunge (the DiMarzio is able to be as clean as dirty) ...
The two simple config a double (simple format) is trs effective point of view of versatility.
As mentioned above, you plug the guitar, triturated all the buttons, and it works anyway, it's great. It sounds no matter the setting.
The output level seems important enough for this type of guitar.


Be careful, do not be attracted by the title VINTAGE certainly eye-catching but quite far from the truth of this instrument (other than mechanical: s, and the look-phew).
I've had a week is really a guitar simpa. It's not the revolution of the century but it is a pleasant and well-strat trs think.
Everything is Excellent except that 3 points would have made this guitar a true small bombinette:
No, the DiMarzio Split
-21 Freight (the 22me t would not luxury, it is known to do more in fender).
And the ultimate, the mechanisms that do not agree ... I will soon change.
Shame is silent while the PRS Fender Dream Machine

Fender Vintage Hot Rod '57 Strat
Guitar factory in the United States (even if it begs the question: will make the difference between a stratocaster amricaine and Mexican).
21 frets which is a shame the lack 22me.
who wants vintage easel, APRS I am no more cal than that.
one volume knob, two Tone (What a Start), microphones slecteur 5 positions.
handle end and fast nitrocellulose.
mcaniques who want Gotoh vintage but are plutt a scam that's why I put only nine.


Channel super enjoyable. The layer of varnish is fine enough.
Access in acute easier. The ergonomics are great: not heavy guitar.
It plugs and plays on a sound xD


I tried it on a Peavey Classic 30 and the marriage of two is nice: clean sound, it was ultimately the one who is not really nice and fender but trs trs own.
on the other hand, ds that starts in the bridge position, the DiMarzio ToneZone doing its job. In his clear, it is not aggressive and it's super enjoyable. Ds that goes into distortion, it's clean, pretty. It gets off!


I tried this guitar because I intend to spend a premium MODEL. J'hsite still scratching between this and a strato lite of 1983 (so that avcu which means good sound). So as said prcdemment, do not be fooled by the vintage car ct in the end, it is not vintage trs.
The list price is 1999 euros ttc store but it is a little less CHRE. The r (qualitprix intake is especially good trs there really a good job derrire this guitar. If I achte I will say again in a little more.

J.Yves's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A good strat !!!!!!!"

Fender Vintage Hot Rod '57 Strat
Start manufactured in the USA .. There are 2 colors (2 color sunburst) and (candy apple red) ..
The body is alder (alder) and privileged crystalline sounds, plus a nitrocellulose lacquer finish with a very fine ..
The neck is maple and the fingerboard with a satin nitrocellulose lacquer gloss back ..
The profile of the latter is "V" relaxed for 21 jumbo frets type Medium .. Radius 9.5 "(241 mm)
Electronics side we find ourselves in a configuration typical strat except .....
Config microphones is S / S / S but the exception is the bridge pickup which is actually a humbucker, a DIMARZIO Tone Zone ..
For Middle found a Samarium Cobalt Noiseless and for the neck pickup .. All managed by a 5-position switch and a master volume and 2 tone .. The standart in a strat I told you ..
For accessories we have a tremolo American Vintage Vintage styles and mechanics all chrome ..
Originally the guitar is fitted with a pull string of 010 / 046 ..
Oh I forgot about the body was a white plate a folded (8 hole)
This guitar is sold with a fly box vintage Fender type ..


After paragraph abordont technical things more enjoyable ..
In the context of its use this guitar is neither more nor less than a strata, but I confess that the handle "V" that is not what happens most often on this type of model I quite convinced after an adaptation phase .. The latter is very soft and comfortable despite pulling strings which I'm not used ..
For the rest I will not dwell too because as I said before we are on a strat standart model ..
If still a feature on the veneer of the guitar is very thin and breathable timber and gives a distinctive sounds obtained ..
Apart from the Tone Zone DIMARZIO and again that this strat sounding strat despite some comments I read or hear who thinks the opposite and I find the balance between the tone zone and samarium relatively balanced ..
slamming and the sound is crystalline and the tone zone unpacks course sounds more saturated ..
However I'm wary because Fender strats still possessing many of the same model and see I realize that each instrument will have its own type of sound .. I had 3 Start Plus and frankly none of the three sounded like no .. Impressive ..
But to sum this paragraph know that with this guitar you get the sound ..


I have so far managed to obtain the desired sound as well as clear that disto ..
I am much more demanding on the type of distortion that sounds clear and I managed to get this guitar with the help of my rack Eleven distos of a harmonic richness and a huge grain ..
I scratch a few pots that do not always come back ..
In fact, the paradox is that I use this guitar for some distortion sounds like virtual amp and sounds rather clear on real tube amp ..


It's been almost a year and a half since I own this guitar and I'm almost at a time not separated by negative opinion but because I worked great trip all year and I can play with all my guitars but after reflection I'm certainly not saying no .. I want to keep it, certainly a more strat strat .. but the comparison is easy because I have other strats strats and even of different brands and this particular model could almost be part of a series Custom Shop ..
In fact the only downside for me is the plate that covers the body ..
It bends a plate 1 which is fake .. So I know they say it's a vintage model 57, so we reproduce the accessories of that time, but frankly I like it not me .. Indeed since the Vintage side is in the title in the guitar I could see a plate a little more consistent ..
I paid this guitar 1700 euros and given the sound quality as well as finishing in general, yes it is a guitar of this price ..
