The Classic Series '50s Stratocaster guitar epitomizes the vibe of the '50s. The color selection alone - Surf Green, Daphne Blue and Fiesta Red - takes you back to the era of diners, Ike and cars with fins. With a maple fretboard, tinted neck, single-ply pickguard and aged plastic parts, it's authentically retro, and the three single-coil pickups with staggered alnico magnet pole pieces deliver that unmistakable '50s Stratocaster sound.

I've tried many american made stratocasters and i have to tell that my mexican made is way better than any of those. Those classic 50 are stunning for sound and dectails especially the necks are perfect.

How does this guitar hold tune? I'm looking for my new main guitar, and I've been playing a lot of different Stratocasters lately. I love the 2-tone sunburst and the maple neck, but I can't decide wether I should by an American or a Mexican. People keep telling me that the Mexican models aren't that bad anymore. What is your oppinion? Should I by an American, or is this Mexican model trustworthy enough as my future gig-guitar? Thanks.
you don't seem very impressed by this guitar. any particular reason?
Notice that there is a difference between the Classic 50 and the Classic Players 50. The one in the video is the first mentioned in my comment. Differences include radius, frets, pickups, and the fact that this one has a 6 point bridge support, whereas the Classic Player 50 has a two point supported bridge. They are both the same price, so if one had to say what is the difference, I would say that this one pretends to be an original 54 Strat, whereas the Classic Player would be the 50´s Strat with some modern details, designed by someone I can´t remember his name. I got mine for less since it was a demo unit, just a barely observable scratch at the bottom. Go for either one depending on what you like better, they are both awesome.

Strange, mine has a two point 'floating tremolo'...
