Overview

Combining the vibe of a '50s original with modern pickup switching and feel, the American Original '50s Strat is the best way to experience why the Stratocaster was an instant hit with guitarists. With a classic "Soft-V" neck profile offset with a modern 9.5" fretboard radius, it's comfortable for both chording and single-note lines. The Pure Vintage '59 pickups are as period correct as possible, from the cloth-covered hookup wires to the fiber bobbins and alnico V magnets and the nitro-finished body is alder or ash, depending on choice of finish. Vintage-style tuners and 6-point synchronized tremolo round out the package.

Features

  • Solid alder or ash body (finish-dependent) with gloss nitrocellulose finish
  • 21-fret nitro-finished, soft-V 9.5" radius maple on maple neck
  • Pure Vintage '59 alnico V, single-coil Stratocaster pickups with 5-way switch
  • Vintage-style tuners and classic 6-point synchronized tremolo bridge
