    The best of both world "& vintage hot rod"

    Fender Vintage Hot Rod ’60s StratocasterPublished on 04/07/14 at 01:41

    This is a USA!
    The characteristic of the vintage hot rod, it is this modern and vintage touch that make the difference. For the modern:
    The vibrato bridge with two attachment point jumper in forged steel (like the jeff beck) which allows better use of vibrato and especially made he did not tune the guitar .. Please note this is not a floyd, but personally with you can do anything.
    The mechanical pure vintage style, but with a rope system blocks for faster installation thereof and tuning stability at the top! not to be confused with self-locking system deluxe! not big puck behind the mechanics, everything remains invisible ;-). BTW look at the pictures you can not find the trick ;-).

    Finally in the hot rod, the little switch in volume knob, combining it enabled, the neck pickup with the bridge pickup, or middel with the bridge or the neck / middle with the bridge .... Well, it changes everything, there is an interest there quickly ... / funky blues and rock above /
    Vintage:
    Channel C (with bone nut yes bone) 60s style, radius 7.25 (up 12 box and then progressive), well then anything goes, the agreement (difficult) finally nice to go from beginning to end handle ... Really the handle is a treat, just polish it takes I do not know how to say, it is in the style of Custom Shop Closet Classic 60 .... If you do not know what I can say is that it is actually one of the best handle Excluding CS I found on fender series. Really anything goes .... A yes before taking it spoke to me difficult to go after the twelfth with a 7.25 radius bend, even in stores ... so here I not understand, or so the guy we played too much on the guitar shreddeur or radius of 12, 16 and cie or just go up there from 2 colors lol ... No No, bend happening everywhere and it is controlled at least ;-).
    To handle this will be quite fine 21 frets, I personally appreciate and uen rosewood fingerboard; ben there also needs to be tested, this rosewood is compact, flexible, hummm!
    Configuration S / S / S handle this is a "new american vintage" (nav) 59 alnico V (the best set of 59) the middle is a bottom nav 65 gray (gray coil) Alnico V considered rare utlise to be alone in a set because very musical. When the Chevalt this ets a nav 56 alnico III for a perfect reproduction of the OD and other.
    Knob tone and extremely fluid volume .. very gradual





    UTILIZATION

    Its use is in view of what I have written above without call ...
    The weight is coherant to good wood, not too heavy, not too légé.
    For comfort, ie, no wedge heel, but like any strat (despite my small hands) I move or I want on the handle, the radius is given as 7.25 up to 12 box (for progressive ;-)) finally agreed and solo becomes easier juqu'a the 21 th.



    SOUNDS

    For my part, the pickups sound t or t-they-they ways, but after it's all the same way you attack the strings and block that make the difference. An advantage, it also respond well to finger pick that and I appreciate it.
    Doing blues, reggea, rock, funk and world it suits me perfectly. The handle and very typical fender blues rock he did bite and I love it. The middle is the jazz, pop and especially funk 4th or 3rd position, if the switch is yet another world of funk ;-). The bridge is clear finally playable without artifice. If you put him OD wah or the other oula this hot ets we go solo or very powerful riff.
    When I hear people say they barely scratch by hand "I need to change the pickups" that my gun ... I'm in my 22 guitars, then yes celon style that can least do especially if you play Live guitar amp ... For my part if you do not pass it metal! but at the same time is not this guitar so that you will take this question even arise .... Ey not going to make me a pounding to put an EMG Double ;-) ... ptdr

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for about 5 months. It is my 22 guitars but to be more precise my 12 th stratovolcano. It is the balance I was looking for a vintage and modern concert These qualities make it a true diversity .. More worth asking it to make it deluxe vintage 62/57 etc.. I would not dare compare it to the Custom Shop, but I can confirm that materials are high quality, whether the bone (not synthetic) fittings, the forged steel bridges (the woods ( waaoooww) handle ... totu top quality.
    Its price mag 2200 1860 or on the Internet is still too expensive yes but overlooked these conccurentes largely justify ... Ropes changed for Gilmour GHS (pulling harder setting), do 10 minutes .... since nothing has moved. I hesitate long before taking this model, firstly the vintage and modern mix (Hot Rod). And no big info above, no ads or even interest in this instrument whatsoever on the mag or on the internet ... But once in hand, I realized that like many great model fender (nonexistent marqueting level) is those cheeks which speaks better ... With the time if I do it again this choice! lol do you think? ..... PS: I could put 9 or more, but I only keep the positive playing because I forget that it may have defects .. ;-)
