Fender MIJ Trad 50s Strat, with Vintera 50s Strat neck, sunburst, made 2021. The MIJ Trad series are the spiritual successors of the Fender Japan reissue models of late last century. It’s a no-nonsense vintage style Strat, with a handy set of crisp 50s-style single coils and a classic aesthetic. The neck has been swapped out for a Vintera 50s neck, so it’s a soft-V shape with a 7.25″ radius, which feels great in the hands. It all fits together nicely and you’d assume the two were made for each other if you hadn’t been told otherwise. Plus, being so lightweight, this is a friendly option for those of us playing longer shows. Crisp!
