Fender is paying tribute to their early days with the brand new Vintera II series. The Vintera II series brings with it all the usual Stratocasters and Jazz and P-Basses that you’d expect, alongside reissues of rarer models like the Mustang and Bass VI.
“I gotta say those new pickups and employment of semi-jumbo frets make this vintage-style Jag a rough-and-tumble best friend to my beloved Jazzmaster,” said Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth fame. “They’re like the Batman and Robin of blast furnace rock n roll!”
“The guitar that I learned to play on when I was six was a mini-Stratocaster and it always feels like second nature to get one in my hands,” said Lindsay Jordan of Snail Mail. “I’ve been incorporating Stratocasters into my live set more and more recently, so it was exciting to try out the Vintera II ’60s Stratocaster and dial in my tone.”
“A consistent trend that we’ve seen for decades now is that players, regardless of age or playing experience, still gravitate towards our most classic offerings – be it an iconic ’60s Sunburst Strat or a ’50s Blonde Tele,” says Justin Norvell, EVP of Product at Fender in a press release.
“The Vintera II Series strikes a harmonious chord between tradition and evolution, giving the global playing community a chance to experience an authentic ’60s P Bass or ’50s Jazzmaster and more, with the same modern craftsmanship and playability they expect from Fender.”
