NAMM: Old 'n' Gold

Fender's 50th Anniversary Golden Strat      28/07/04

NAMM: Old 'n' Gold
how much more gold?

Continuing with its year long celebration of the most influential electric guitar in history, Fender introduced the 50th Anniversary Golden Stratocaster guitar at the summer Namm show. This new commemorative model is based on the popular Classic Series '50s Stratocaster guitar, and fittingly, it comes with an Aztec Gold finish, gold hardware, gold anodized pickguard and a deluxe 50th Anniversary vintage tweed gig bag. Mike Tonn, Marketing Manager for Fender had this to say of the latest model, "The Fender 50th Anniversary models we introduced earlier this year have been very well received, and we want to keep the celebration going all year long. This new model recalls the whole vibe of the earliest Stratocaster guitars, but it's something completely different and unique from anything else we've done this year." The 50th Anniversary Golden Stratocaster guitar will only be available until December 31st, 2004. Additional features include a 1950's style maple neck with soft 'V' shaped profile, vintage tremolo bridge and tuning machines, 21 Frets and 3 vintage style single-coil pickups with staggered Alnico magnet pole pieces. US MSRP is $999.99. More info:
