All guitars in this new release boast a basswood body, as well as a soft “V” shaped maple neck and fretboard fitted with medium jumbo frets.
Also featured are three brass barrel saddle bridges with locking tuners. The ‘50s Tele is available in a White Blonde finish, while its ‘60s counterpart’s body is double-bound, with a Firemist Gold colourway.
The ‘50s and ‘60s style Stratocaster feature vintage-style locking tuners, but also possess a six-point synchronised tremolo.
Unique to the ‘50s style is its push-pull pot on the tone control allows players to flip the pickups in and out of phase in switch positions two and four, while the ‘60s Strat offers up a push-pull pot that adds a neck pick-up which allows an ability to switch between positions 1 and 2.
The JV modified ‘50s and ‘60s Stratocasters are respectively available in a two-tone Sunburnt Finish and Olympic White.
