What we say:

At A Glance:

This Fender American Vintage II 1961 Stratocaster in 3 Colour Sunburst, is a USA-built homage to a true Fender classic. Pulling together an incredible range of vintage specs Fender has created a guitar that throws it right back to the early '60s. A year-specific neck carve and pickup set, a round 7.25" radius fingerboard on a maple neck, it's all here to give you that iconic feel in your hands. All built with Fender American quality this is a vintage guitar that with the reliability of a modern performance instrument.

Features We Love:

1961 Neck Shape

One of the biggest factors in our enjoyment of a guitar is the neck shape and Fender has kept things true to vintage specs with this era-specific neck carve. This "C" carve has become quite the sought-after shape for Fender due to its supreme comfortability. It's a carve you won't find on many guitars and it makes this one extra special.

Pure Vintage Pickups

Not just looking to capture the feel of a 60's Strat, Fender has gone with their Pure Vintage single coils wound specifically for that 1961 spec. This is the sound of a vintage Strat! A warm low end with a sparkly high end. As soon as you plug this guitar in you'll be met with that iconic Strat tone.

Vintage Spec, Modern Quality

Fender has recreated as much of that vintage vibe as they can with this model from the year-specific neck shape and pickups, to the 7.25" radius on the neck, and classic '61 body contours. But it doesn't have any of the problems that can sometimes be associated with vintage guitars thanks to the always stellar Fender USA quality. You can pick this guitar up and know you have an instrument you can trust to deliver a great tone and a fantastic playing experience.
