There just something about the look of a ‘60s-era Strat. From the Rosewood fingerboard to the mint green pickguard, these guitars just have that timeless look that looks great and sound magnificent! The left handed American Original ‘60s Stratocaster harkens back to that great decade of music and guitar design while adding a few key modern appointments that make it stunning both visually and sonically.
The wax-potted vintage-style '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 pickups' pole pieces are staggered properly for left-handed orientation, ensuring you get the articulate tone you expect. The thick '60s C neck profile is perfect for chording, while 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 LH is the best way to experience the performance, style and tone that made Fender the choice of legends.
