What we say:
At A Glance:
Fender say they didn't set out to create a classic when they first released the Stratocaster back in 1954, but it is by far one of the most identifiable guitars of all time. This American Original 50s Strat has been created as the ultimate tribute to the original line of Stratocasters.
The vintage appearance is definitely present with the white pickguard, gloss nitrocellulose finish and original-era body radii, but every detail from the frets and wiring, down to the tuners and pickups have been recreated in meticulous period-accurate detail.
If you're looking for a mint condition 50s Stratocaster without spending insane money, this is the guitar for you!
Features We Love:
The guitar features a beautiful sounding alder body which has been finished in tasteful Inca Silver using period-accurate gloss nitrocellulose lacquer. Nitro lacquer is loved for its ability to let the wood breathe and also the fact that it wears in a loveably distinctive way. After years of playing your guitar will look and sound even more like a vintage classic.
Pickups and Circuitry
To create the period-accurate vintage tone, Fender have essentially recreated the vintage circuit verbatim, from the Formvar-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, everything is as it was back in the 50s. The wax-potted Pure Vintage '59 single coil Stratocaster pickups take things further (or back in time) by recreating the fibre bobbins and alnico 5 magnets used at the time, giving this guitar that fantastic tone that's been featured on countless records.
Period Accurate Hardware
Fender wanted this model to be just like buying a new Strat in the 1950s, that means it features the exact same spec of hardware. Including vintage-tall frets, a synchronized tremolo bridge and Pure Vintage Single Line "Fender Deluxe" tuners, each contributing their own key element to the guitar's fantastic feel and tone.
