Fender American Original ’50s Stratocaster – Aztec-Gold
When we released the Stratocaster in 1954,
we didn’t set out to create a classic-but we 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. The wax-potted Pure Vintage ‘59 single-coil Stratocaster pickups are as period-correct as possible, from the Formvar-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets. The thick Soft V neck profile is perfect for chording, while the 9.5″-radius fingerboard enhances playability.
Other authentic touches include vintage-tall frets, original-era body radii, vintage-style hardware -including a six-point synchronized tremolo bridge- vintage-style hardshell case and a lacquer finish that not only lets the wood breathe naturally, it also ages in a distinctively appealing way.
The American Original ‘50s Stratocaster is the best way to experience the performance, style and tone that made Fender a household name among guitarists.
