      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I play a 1963 Fender Strat hardtail. A "hardtail" does not have a vibrato bar. The re-issues of this particular Stratocaster play considerably the same with pretty much the same tuning problems of the 1963 itself. Nonetheless - the 63 Strat (60's Stratocaster) is by far the finest all-around guitar that money can buy. Taking a survey of other players that use this instrument you will uncover just about every famous name in rock. It's tonality and ease of play make most other guitars scramble to come even close. I actually own several guitars, but none of them have the same playability and ease of play as the Stratocaster. The inset plug-in jack of the Stratocaster does a very nice job of staying out of the way and I have always used straight plug cords with it. If you own an original 60's Stratocaster, do not rewire it. On the other hand - the re-wire of reissue 60's Statocasters is possibly even desirable. I mentioned tuning problems - to avoid the lion's share of tuning problems, keep fresh strings on your Strat. The Statocaster is very unforgiving with stale strings (as other many other guitars). I have found with regular use it is desirable to change strings about every three weeks to get the optimum tone and playablility out of this fine instrument. Fender has done many modifications to the Stratocaster over time, but I consider the 1960's reissue to be an absolute service to musicians. If you have plans to buy a first professional guitar or wish to expand your guitar armada - do not hesitate to purchase a 1960's reissue Stratocaster.
