What were the Strat models? The 54 was a special run in 2014, but aside from that, it was 56, 59, 65? And over here we had 52, 58, 64. So, Fender is (I hope) essentially leaving 60s pretty much alone (unless they wanna do slab boards, which I doubt). And they're merging the early and late 50s. I think the 58 Tele was the worst seller (though I'm not sure why, love mine). If I were to buy a Strat, it would have been the 56 or 65. The 59 transitional neck was weird, if I recall. It's a RW board, without the real 60s feel. Looked at this way, perhaps not much change. Except, what, no firmly rooted broadcaster / nocaster / 52 / blackguard? Instead one 50s model, perhaps with white or black pickguard (eeek). How do you blend early and late 50s Teles, and not have a mess? I guess arithmetically you build a replica 55... The Strat might not change much, if the 50s still has the good neck. Still not happy with radius and frets. That's the realm of hot rods, like mini-buckers. Nothing 'vintage' or 'original' about it.
