Vintage-50‘s-Inspired Stratocaster With Classic Tone and Modern Appointments is a True American Original
This gently used USA made 2018 Fender American Original 50‘s Stratocaster was inspired by vintage Strats from the 1950‘s and sports an array of modern refinements that enhance its tone and the playability. Featuring an Alder body with a beautiful 2-tone burst finish, and a soft ‘V’ profile Maple neck with 21 Vintage tall frets, this American Original Stratocaster checks all of the boxes in terms of vintage appointments, but sports several refined specs that give it an updated tone and a modern feel.
With an enlarged fretboard radius of 9.5“ this American Original Strat is excellent for modern lead playing, allowing lead players to enjoy easy access to the highest frets, while its Fender Pure Vintage single coil pickups, which painstakingly replicate the look and sound of some of Fender’s best single coils from the ‘50‘s, including period correct wire, bobbins and magentic pole pieces, delivers an authentic 50‘s tone. With modern 5-way switching and tone potentiometers for the neck and bridge pickups, you will enjoy an array of classic and modern tones perfect for a variety of musical styles.
The hardware on the American Original 50‘s Strat is completely authentic to the original, including a covered 6-saddle synchronized vintage tremolo bridge, a bone nut and Fender Klusion-style vintage tuners. Sporting the basic 6-saddle vintage tremolo system from the 1950‘s, with the same string tree, saddles and tuning machines as the 50‘s strats, the bone nut enhances tuning stability and gives this American Original Strat improved sustain.
