Contemporary series is Fender`s way of probing the market with modern, fresh takes on their most revered classics. The initial lineup`s five-model strong, being comprised of three Stratocasters and two Teles. Contemporary Stratocaster HSS is the only member of the quintet to have single-coil pickups (middle and neck positions). Modern Strat body, 22-fret fingerboard, 12" fingerboard radius, and modern C neck profile are also among the main features. The color palette has three options - Ocean Blue Metallic, Black Metallic, and Pearl White (all three sport chrome hardware, matching headstocks, black/white plastics). Other notable features include a solid and double-cut poplar body, maple neck (four-bolt joint, smooth finish), rosewood fingerboard (traditional dot inlays, synthetic bone nut), passive Ceramic pickups w/simplified controls, and die-cast tuners.
