American Original ’50s Stratocaster - White Blonde/Maple

Ever think about how radical those first Stratocasters must have looked in 1954? Sleek and sculpted, with contoured solid-body styling, completely new pickups, switching, bridge and tremolo designs, the original Strat was a space-age answer to everything that had come before. 

The American Original ‘50s Stratocaster maintains Fender’s first-generation appearance, style and ground-breaking tone, while adding modern feel and pickup switching. 
  • Wax-potted Pure Vintage ‘59 single-coil Stratocaster pickups are as period-correct as possible, with Formvar-coated coil wire, cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets. 
  • A thick “Soft V” neck profile is perfect for chording, while a modern, 9.5”-radius fingerboard enhances playability. 
  • Nitrocellulose lacquer finish lets the wood “breathe” naturally (many feel it improves tone), and ages distinctively.

Other ‘50s-era features include vintage-tall frets, original body radii, vintage-style hardware (including a six- point synchronized tremolo bridge) and vintage-style hardshell case.
