Watch: Nile Rodgers jams on the Fender Vintera Stratocaster series

The Hitmaker Shares Some Wisdom

It seems like everyone (us included) has been swooning over the Fender Vintera series recently, with disco legend Nile Rodgers being the latest high-profile endorsee of the new Mexican made models.

In a partnered video with Guitar Center, the Chic bandleader takes an array of '50s, '60s and '70s Vintera Stratocasters for a spin, demonstrating his untouchable funk chops and reminding us once again just why he's one of the best to ever do it. Also, he's still looking damn fresh for a man who turns 67 next month - the dog leash chain link is a huge flex.

 

Throughout the video, Rodgers labels the Stratocaster as the "ultimate rock 'n roll guitar," with the veteran also reminiscing on how his Stratocaster helped him envision so many of the hits he's worked on (if you're unaware, he's worked with everyone from David Bowie and Eric Clapton to Madonna and Daft Punk). Towards the end, Rodgers reflects that "These guitars really have given me an identity" - a notion which I'm sure many guitarists can relate to.
