Whilst maintaining the classic era-style with its authentic tone, the Fender American Original '50s Stratocaster also provides a modern feel for enhanced playability. The Original '50s Strat also features wax-potted pure vintage '59 single-coil Stratocaster pickups that are as period correct as possible to deliver an original '50s Strat sound. In addition, the '50s Stratocaster's maple fingerboard adds sustain and plenty of bite to the overall sound, and with its 9.5'' fingerboard radius, players will appreciate the smooth and fast playability this guitar offers. With an iconic body shape, vintage-style hardware, including a six point synchronized tremolo bridge, and 2-tone sunburst finish, the Fender American Original '50s Stratocaster MN is the perfect way to experience Fender's classic playability, performance and tone.

Pure Vintage '59 Strat Pickups

The Fender American Original '50s Stratocaster comes equipped with 3 pure vintage '59 single coil pickups to deliver a classic Stratocaster ground-breaking tone. These incredible pickups are built to be as period-correct as possible with era-correct cloth wire and a fiber bobbin construction, which enables players to achieve an authentic, sonically pleasing sound that the '50s Strats were known for. The Formvar-coated magnet wire improves overall brightness, the Alnico 5 add more focus and enhances dynamics, whilst the staggered pole pieces balance the volume and the output across each string.

Iconic Stratocaster Body

With an iconic Stratocaster body, players can benefit from the two asymmetrical cutaways, which not only provide a pleasing aesthetic appeal, but promote the access to upper fingerboard shredding. Furthermore, its body is slim, sleek, and contoured to ensure long practice sessions and live performances are as comfortable as possible. The American Original Strat also features a non-locking tremolo bridge which enables players to add something a little extra to their sound. Furthermore, the iconic Stratocaster body is constructed from alder, which is lightweight, offering comfort and delivering a resonant, well-balanced tone with a bright attack. As well as all this, the Fender American Original '50s Stratocaster has a lacquer finish which not only enables the wood breathe naturally, but will age in a distinctively appealing manner.

Comfortable Neck & Maple Fingerboard

The American Original's neck is constructed from maple, which adds a bright attack with great sustain to the overall sound. The Fender American Original '50s Stratocaster features a thick soft V neck profile which provides guitarists with a smooth and comfortable playing experience. Its soft V neck is perfect for chording, and its 9.5'' fingerboard radius enhances playability. The Strat's smooth playing neck is topped with a maple fingerboard which adds more sustain and plenty of bite to the guitar's overall sound.

The History of the Stratocaster

When many people think of an electric guitar, this is the one that leaps to mind. The Stratocaster is one of the world's most popular guitars and is an elegantly versatile creation. Not long after Fender revolutionised music with the Telecaster and the Precision Bass, in 1954 they debuted the Stratocaster and it quickly became universally regarded as the archetypal electric guitar. Sleek and stylish aesthetics, smooth playing and tonally versatile, at the heart the Stratocaster remains a fantastic instrument - producing unmistakable sound with a timeless design. A first choice among players worldwide, there is simply nothing that sings, screams, whispers, moans, roars, rocks and rolls like a Fender Stratocaster.
