Legendary Original-Era Style and Ground-Breaking Tone - The Fender American Original '50s Stratocaster MN Electric Guitar - 2-Color Sunburst
When they 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.
The wax-potted Pure Vintage '59 single-coil Stratocaster pickups are as period-correct as possible, from the Formvar-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets. The thick --"Soft V--" neck profile is perfect for chording, while the 9.5--"-radius fingerboard enhances playability.
Other authentic touches include vintage-tall frets, original-era body radii, vintage-style hardware-including a six-point synchronized tremolo bridge-vintage-style hardshell case and a lacquer finish that not only lets the wood --"breathe--" naturally, it also ages in a distinctively appealing way.
The American Original '50s Stratocaster is the best way to experience the performance, style and tone that made Fender a household name among guitarists.
