The mid '70s saw the widespread popularity of the non-tremolo—or “hardtail”—Stratocaster, so we dedicated the true look and vibe of the Limited Edition American Vintage ’70s Hardtail Stratocaster to that era. Hardtail guitars are a great option for tuning stability, but they also have their own distinct sound—with more body mass, a string-through-body bridge, and no harmonic overtones from the tremolo block and springs, they’re Stratocaster models that truly have a sonic and stylistic identity all their own.
The Stratocaster Turns 60

Six decades after its introduction, the Stratocaster lives on stronger than ever. After 60 incredibly colorful years, it’s still the future. It’s still the world’s greatest electric guitar.

No other electric guitar is more elegantly versatile. No other guitar is more easily modified into a statement of personal creativity. No other guitar lets you sound like yourself more. No other guitar has that tone.

To help celebrate, Roxy Music is offering "Stratocasters throughout the years."
