  • Description

    If you crave a Strat with that legendary vintage Fender sound, style and feel, the American Vintage '56 Stratocaster is the answer. Preserving Fender's legacy and heritage while delving deep into their roots, the American Vintage '56 Stratocaster was crafted with original tooling and painstakingly modeled after actual 1956 Strat models that Fender got their hands on. This exceptional attention to vintage detail and period-correct design gives this '56 Strat the authentic tone, look and feel of those early Strats.

    Bringing you back to when the world-renowned Strat was only two years old, the American Vintage '56 Stratocaster reflects all the noteworthy features found on real-deal mid-1956 Strats. This Strat starts out with an alder body that sports accurate deeper contours along with an ultra-thin Fender Flash Coat Lacquer finish in Aged White Blonde. The thick one-piece maple neck boasts comfortably rolled edges and Fender's most sought-after soft "V" shape to give the American Vintage '56 Strat the unmistakable feel of Fender's most popular neck profile. Classic Fender playability is offered by the traditional 25.5" scale length, the old-school 7.25" fingerboard radius and 21 vintage-style frets. Enhancing the vintage accuracy, the neck features a vintage-style heel adjust truss rod along with a bone nut.

    For pure vintage Strat tone through and through, the American Vintage '56 Stratocaster comes equipped with a trio of specially-voiced American Vintage '56 single-coil pickups that are wound to vintage-correct spec to faithfully reproduce all the sonic splendor of the originals. The pickups are routed through a contemporary 5-way switch, a Master Volume control, and two Tone controls. If you prefer more authentic switching, the American Vintage '56 Strat also includes a traditional 3-way switch.

    A set of period-correct single line "Fender Deluxe" tuners, a vintage-accurate 6-saddle American Vintage Synchronized tremolo, eggshell controls knobs/switch tip and a single-ply white pickguard round out this vintage-appointed package. Comes complete with a hardshell case, a vintage strap, cable and cloth, a vintage 3-position switch, a '50s Strat info kit and a bridge cover.
