Fender American Original '50s Stratocaster

Fender $1,899.99

When we released the Stratocaster in 1954, we didn’t set out to create a classic—but we 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.

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.

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.
