Description

A period of change, both for Fender and for pop culture as a whole, the 1960s saw the Strat mellow slightly as it grew up. The white pickguard was updated to mint green, and the fingerboard was switched from the original maple to rosewood, adding a smoother note to the Strat’s clear, articulate voice. The American Original ‘60s Stratocaster keeps these refinements intact while adding modern feel and pickup switching to the iconic instrument that helped birth guitar rock as we know it.

FEATURES
  • Alder body with lacquer finish
  • Three Pure Vintage '65 single-coil Stratocaster pickups
  • Thick "'60s C"-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 not only finish lets the body breathe with its true tonal character, it also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way.

    PURE VINTAGE ‘65 PICKUPS

    American Original instruments feature specially voiced pickups crafted to reproduce authentic Fender sound.

    THICK “’60S C” NECK SHAPE

    The thick "’60s C"-shaped neck profile is sculpted for a vintage-style playing feel. It’s remarkably comfortable and ideal for any playing style.

    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.
