American Original ‘50s Stratocaster
TRUE TO THE CLASSIC Strats of the late 1950sWhen 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 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. Adorned with authentic hardware from the ’50s, this incredible guitar is classic Fender through and through!
• Alder body with lacquer finish
• Three Pure Vintage '59 single-coil Stratocaster pickups
• Thick "Soft V"-shaped neck profile; 9.5"-radius fingerboard
• Vintage-style hardware; six-point synchronized tremolo bridge
• Includes vintage-style hardshell case
Why Choose The Eric Clapton Stratocaster?
Pure Vintage ’59 single coil pickupsOpening up the doorway to those retro whammy bar sounds, a hall-mark of ‘50s rock n roll, Fender equipped the American Original ‘50s Stratocaster with a Pure Vintage 6 Saddle Synchronised Tremolo system.
Moving up towards the headstock, Fender fitted 6 Pure Vintage Single Line ‘Fender Deluxe’ machine heads so you can accurately, and securely tune this ‘50s Strat, whilst also adding a healthy serving of authentic vintage aesthetic!
The beating heart of the American Original ‘50s Stratocaster lies in the trio of Pure Vintage ’59 single coil pickups, these pickups are as period-correct as it’s possible to get! Everything from the Formvar-coated coil wire and cloth-covered output wires, through to the fibre bobbins and Alnico 5 magnets – the Pure Vintage ’59 single coils are as authentic as it’s possible to get!
Authentic '50s Craftsmanship
soft ‘V’ shape neck profileFender chose to use Alder wood to base the iconic double-cutaway design of this ‘50s American Original Stratocaster. With such easy access to the higher register, this Stratocaster is ready to shred!
Also featured is a one-piece maple neck, with a soft ‘V’ shape profile, spread across a 9.5” radius maple fingerboard. This radius profile encourages and enhances fluid playability, alongside the Vintage Tall frets. Another subtle nod to this guitar’s illustrious 1950s history.
Another fantastic feature to see on the American Original ‘50s Stratocaster is the gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish. This finish enables the body wood to breathe naturally, whilst also importantly aging in a very unique and appealing manner.
Vintage '50s Rock n Roll!
AMERICAN ORIGINAL SERIES When you choose Fender, you choose the best. For over 60 years the Fender Stratocaster has been the most iconic and recognisable electric guitar around, for both it's sonic qualities and it's aesthetic. Take a look below at just some of the standout features of this magnificent piece of rock history.
FINISHThe nitrocellulose lacquer finish not only lets the body breathe with its true tonal character, it also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way.
‘59 PICKUPSAmerican Original instruments feature specially voiced pickups crafted to reproduce the authentic sound and performance of individual model years.
THICK "SOFT V"
NECK SHAPEThe thick “Soft V”-shaped neck slightly smooths the sharpness of a “V” profile, rounding it out so it’s more comfortable for rhythm and lead playing.
AND NECK RADIUSOriginal-era fans can rest assured every curve and line of the body and neck are accurate to the historic originals.
HARDWAREFrom the bridge to the string tree and tuning machines, every piece of hardware is just like the original.
& FRETSThis 9.5”-radius fingerboard is slightly flatter than a vintage-style 7.25” radius, providing a comfortable fret-hand feel. Vintage-tall frets make it easier to bend notes without fretting out.
