A period of change, both for Fender and for pop culture as a whole, the 1960s saw the Strat mellow slightly as it grew up. The white pickguard was updated to mint green, and the fingerboard was switched from the original maple to rosewood, adding a smoother note to the Strat’s clear, articulate voice. The American Original ‘60s Stratocaster keeps these refinements intact while adding modern feel and pickup switching to the iconic instrument that helped birth guitar rock as we know it.
Loaded with 3 Pure Vintage '65 single-coil Stratocaster pickups. Alder body with lacquer finish. Thick "60s C"-shaped neck profile with a 9.5" fingerboard radius and Round-Laminated Rosewood fingerboard. Vintage-tall frets make it easier to bend notes without fretting out. Includes Fender's Vintage-Style hardshell case.
