Description

When Fender released the Stratocaster in 1954, they didn’t set out to create a classic—but they did. The Stratocaster’s sleek style, articulate sound and plethora of innovations redefined electric guitar and opened up a brave new world of musical possibilities. The American Original ‘50s Stratocaster maintains Fender’s legendary original-era style and ground-breaking tone, while adding modern feel and pickup switching.

FEATURES
  • Alder or ash body (White Blonde only) with lacquer finish
  • Three Pure Vintage '59 single-coil Stratocaster pickups
  • Thick "Soft V"-shaped neck profile; 9.5"-radius fingerboard
  • Vintage-style hardware; six-point synchronized tremolo bridge
  • Includes vintage-style hardshell case
  • LACQUER FINISH

    The nitrocellulose lacquer finish not only lets the body breathe with its true tonal character, it also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way.

    PURE VINTAGE ‘59 PICKUPS

    American Original instruments feature specially voiced pickups crafted to reproduce the authentic sound and performance of individual model years.

    THICK "SOFT V" NECK SHAPE

    The thick “Soft V”-shaped neck slightly smooths the sharpness of a “V” profile, rounding it out so it’s more comfortable for rhythm and lead playing.

    VINTAGE-ACCURATE BODY AND NECK RADII

    Original-era fans can rest assured every curve and line of the body and neck are accurate to the historic originals.

    VINTAGE-CORRECT HARDWARE

    From the bridge to the string tree and tuning machines, every piece of hardware is just like the original.

    FINGERBOARD & FRETS

    This 9.5”-radius fingerboard is slightly flatter than a vintage-style 7.25” radius, providing a comfortable fret-hand feel. Vintage-tall frets make it easier to bend notes without fretting out.
