Fender American Original 50s Strat - White Blonde - Maple Fretboard
The Fender American Original '50s Stratocaster is the best way to experience the performance, style and tone that made Fender a household name among guitarists. When Fender 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 the electric guitar and opened up a brave new world of musical possibilities.
By adopting some of the most important design features of the 50's strats, this guitar feels and sounds like the original: the nitro cellulose finishing, Pure Vintage '59 pickups with authentic voicing, 6-point trem, soft V-Neck and vintage tall fret all ooze vintage nostalgia.
But by carefully adapting some of the nuances, they have retained some of the refinements that make the Strat a modern classic of 21st Century players. The modern fingerboard radius lends itself to a wider range of styles, and the 5-way pickup switching retains the greater tonal versatility of a modern strat.
The result is stunning: a guitar that is quintessentially vintage in tone and vibe, but turns its hand to whatever you throw its way, and performs like a cutting-edge guitar really should.
