Demo & Review: Fender 75th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster

Fender 75th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster

Honouring Leo Fender's Great Design

In 1946 Clarence Leonidas “Leo” Fender created Fender Electric Instrument Company and changed the trajectory of modern music forever. For their 75th Anniversary, Fender has paid a fitting homage to the world’s most popular electric guitar, providing classic Fender style and tone in an exclusive, upscale package.

A Commemoration of the Best

The two-colour Bourbon Burst finish over this ash body is absolutely stunning, pairing nicely with gold hardware and pearl button locking tuners. The one-piece maple neck features a Deep “C” profile, rolled fingerboard edges, a “Super-Natural” satin finish and a sculpted neck heel, which really make the guitar comfortable to play. With the Custom Shop Fat ‘60s pickups, you get that sweet, unmistakable Strat sound, with added low-end punch.

Each Commemorative Stratocaster features a 75th anniversary ingot inlaid into the back of the headstock and an engraved anniversary neck plate, along with a case made with a luxurious Lake Placid blue interior.

Hi, I'm Rob Vendrasco from Cosmo Music and today I'm so happy that we have a limited edition 75th Anniversary commemorative Fender Stratocaster.

In 1946 Leo Fender created the Fender Electric Musical Instrument Company. Today, Fender created a limited edition 75th Anniversary collection to commemorate their iconic instruments. You know them all, the Stratocaster. the Telecaster. the Precision Bass. the Jazz Bass. Meet the Stratocaster.

The original design back from 1954, really not that much has changed on the guitar, and some of those features from back then are still things that we take for granted today. Like this amazing top contour here, this belly cut, the double cutaway, great access to the higher frets, the six in line tuners. But on the 75th Anniversary commemorative version, they've added the two-post tremolo ash body, which is nothing new but sounds fantastic, they put these beautiful gold locking tuners with the pearloid buttons, a "C"-shaped neck, 22 medium jumbo frets, rolled fingerboard edges that make it super, super comfortable, and the contoured neck heel. Again, another comfort feature, a beautiful addition to this already amazing guitar.

So that's the 75th Anniversary Fender Stratocaster, come check it out at You know there's some really cool things about this guitar... (laughs).
