The Fender American Vintage II 1973 Stratocaster electric guitar with maple fingerboard exudes the spirit of the era. It is outfitted with a trio of Pure Vintage ’73 staggered pole pickups, a large headstock with dual string trees, a convenient “Bullet”-style truss rod nut and a three-bolt neck plate with Micro-Tilt mechanism. The C-shaped maple neck plays like a dream with a 7.25"-radius fingerboard and vintage tall frets. It comes in classic finishes over ash wood. Additional features to the American Vintage II 1973 Strat include vintage-style “F”-stamped tuners and a synchronized tremolo with bent steel saddles and cold rolled steel block. Comes with a vintage-style black case with an orange interior.

The Fender American Vintage II series presents a remarkably accurate take on the revolutionary designs that altered the course of musical history. Built with period-accurate bodies, necks and hardware, premium finishes and meticulously voiced, year-specific pickups, each instrument captures the essence of authentic Fender craftsmanship and tone.
