The 1960s was a decade of change, and Fender changed right along with pop culture. The American Original ‘60s Stratocaster highlights many of those changes to great effect! The round-laminated Rosewood fingerboard, mint green pickguard and Pure Vintage ’65 Strat pickups transport players to that golden age of the Strat. Fender gives the guitar a thick ‘60s neck profile, vintage tall frets and 9.5 inch fingerboard radius give players the ability to string bend and have great playing comfort in all positions.
The wax-potted Pure Vintage '65 single-coil Stratocaster pickups are as period-correct as possible, from the enamel-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets. The thick ’60s C’ neck profile and the 9.5 inch-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 with resonant tone, it also ages in a distinctively appealing way.
The American Original '60s Stratocaster is the best way to experience the performance, style and tone that made Fender the choice of legends.
