Fender 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster Sunburst, 2014 / *No Longer Available*


Instrument Categories: , , ,

Here we’re looking at a very good condition, early-example Fender 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster Sunburst, built during January 2014.

Built to mark the 1954 introduction of the Stratocaster, this model is based on the American Standard platform but with a number of upgrades and a limited production run of 1,954 guitars.

The Fender 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster body is lightweight Ash with a slightly contoured heel, the neck Maple with compound radius (9.5 to 14 inches) 22 frets and medium-jumbo fretwire. The metal hardware including the two-point trem is gold plated, and the tuners feature faux-pearl buttons. The pickups are specially created to 1954 specifications. The pick guard is a parchment white three layer type. An upgrade that most might take for granted is that the wiring includes a 5-position switch!

Overall this guitar is in great shape with only the slightest wear. It is very comfortable and well balanced, and the ’54 style pickups sound quite good.

The original tweed case with case candy is included.

Here’s the builder on the Fender 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster:

“A beautifully crafted U.S.-made instrument that celebrates six decades of the world’s greatest electric guitar, the 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster features a wealth of fine appointments and is available in 2014 only as a very special limited-run model. Every aspect of it evokes and honors the spirit of the original Stratocaster while also offering the finest in modern Strat features and specifications, accompanied by several special extras.”
