When Fender first introduced the original Stratocaster in 1954, they had no idea that they would create an instrument that would become a true music icon and a legend. The Fender American Original '50s Stratocaster pays homage to the legendary original-era Strats with a massive selection of accurate, classic appointments. This Strat fuses Fender tradition with contemporary updates that'll appeal to today's discerning player. Of course, it comes fitted with a set of Pure Vintage era-correct pickups to deliver that authentic '50s-style Strat sound. If you're a player looking for a Strat that gives you the best of classic and contemporary, the American Original '50s Strat is the answer.

Accurate, Classic Appointments
Giving it a true original-era vibe, this American Original '50s Stratocaster comes jam-packed with authentic '50s-style features and appointments including an ash body in a gloss nitro lacquer finish, a thick "soft V" maple neck, a maple fingerboard with vintage tall frets, a genuine bone nut, and a vintage-style truss rod assembly. A Pure Vintage 6-saddle synchronized tremolo and Pure Vintage tuners remain true to the hardware of its '50s-era predecessors.

Contemporary Updates
While this Strat definitely offers up plenty of '50s-inspired appointments and features, it also offers some contemporary upgrades that bring this classic into the 21st century. Instead of the 7.25" fretboard radius that can be found on many of Fender's vintage instruments, the American Original '50s Strat sports a 9.5" radius for smooth, modern playability and exceptional comfort. For added sonic flexibility, this Strat also features versatile 5-way switching as opposed to the vintage-style 3-way switching.

Pure Vintage Era-Correct Pickups
To faithfully replicate that signature '50s Strat sound, the American Original '50s Stratocaster comes equipped with a trio of Pure Vintage '59 pickups that were specifically designed to re-create the sonic splendor of the originals.
