Since Fender took the music world by storm in 1946, they've worked closely with countless top-recording artists. By listening intently to the wants and needs of these discerning musicians, many legendary axes were created—and their American Vintage Series is a testament to what can happen when guitar icons team up with the world's greatest stringed-instrument manufacturer.

From vintage Strats and '50s Telecasters to classic Precision and Jazz basses, the instruments in American Vintage Series will drop the jaws of any Fender historian. Just take a look at the American Vintage '65 Stratocaster Electric Guitar. With its classic 3-color Sunburst finish, this axe boasts authentic features like a 3-ply white pickguard with 11 holes, lightweight alder body, aged plastic knobs and vintage-accurate pickups. All this—along with an improved neck and pickup wire—make the '65 Strat a stunning tribute to Fender's legacy.
