One-piece maple neck and fingerboard with soft "V" shape.The Blues - Chicago Style! Some guitars just ooze style! Part of Fender's popular Artist Series, the Buddy Guy Strat is all about the look, the feel and yes, the tone! When you want to play the blues, you need a guitar that will respond to every nuance of your own personal touch. So you start with a solid lightweight ash body and give it a jewel-like Honey Blond finish, then top it off with a four-ply brown tortoiseshell pickguard. Next, you bolt on a soft "V"-shaped maple neck and finally, add the decidedly retro American Vintage Tremolo. Downright Chunky Soft "V"-Shaped Maple Neck Leo Fender wasn't afraid to "think outside the box" when it came to guitar designs - after all, he was an engineer, not a guitar player. In the 1950s and well into the 1970s, the blond natural maple neck became almost synonymous with Fender guitars. The Buddy Guy Stratocaster keeps that trademark one-piece maple neck and fingerboard, but with a somewhat beefy soft "V"-shaped profile and 22 vintage style frets. In keeping with contemporary player preferences, the fast playing neck is finished in a silky-smooth satin polyurethane.

Originally designed to be easier to build, and thus more affordable, Leo Fender's masterpieces, which include classics like the Stratocaster (is there a more distinctive guitar shape in the world?), the Telecaster® and the original Precision Bass®, were at the core of a musical revolution that spawned everything from surf to country to punk! In the 1960s, when Fender guitars first hit bandstands and stages all around the country, it was astonishing to see that trademark Fender maple neck and fingerboard. Though the company eventually offered rosewood fingerboards as standard or optional on its entire line of instruments, those first"blond" necks really shook things up. Others have picked up on the maple neck theme, but it's clearly yet another of Leo Fender's "firsts." Today, no other manufacturer can match Fender for the sheer number of options available throughout its entire line. While vintage Fenders can command astronomic prices, the company now has the widest range of quality instruments in the world, along with the highest profile players like Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, all of whom are legendary.
