Guitar Additional Info

Description:
The American Vintage series introduces an all-new lineup of original-era model year guitars that bring Fender history and heritage to authentic and exciting new life. With key features and pivotal design elements spanning the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s, new American Vintage series instruments delve deep into Fender´s roots-expertly preserving an innovative U.S. guitar-making legacy and vividly demonstrating like never before that Fender not only knows where it´s going, but also remembers where it came from. The American Vintage Series has long presented some of Fender´s best selling guitars (their early-´80s introduction, in fact, was one of the first signs that Fender was "back" as the CBS era ended). Today, Fender has boldly cleared the slate to make way for a fresh American Vintage series with new features, new specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet. Rather than just replacing the previous models with different ones, we´ve completely and comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage-reissue concept-restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more-based on actual vintage guitars we tracked down to make sure we had it right. We did the work, and it shows, because there´s pure tonal magic in each new American Vintage instrument. 1959 was an important and highly evolutionary year for the Stratocaster because that´s when slimmer necks, rosewood fingerboards and multi-ply laminated pickguards first appeared. The American Vintage ´59 Stratocaster presents two versions of that year´s pivotal transitional model; one from early 1959 and one from later 1959. Both have the slim-profile D-shaped maple neck of that year, with the earlier version featuring a maple fingerboard, faded Three-color Sunburst finish and single-ply white pickguard with eight holes; the later version (in faded Three-color Sunburst, Black and limited faded Sonic Blue finishes) featuring a dark rosewood slab fingerboard and three-ply mint green pickguard with 10 holes and vintage-style edge bevels. Both also feature a lightweight alder body, aged plastic knobs and vintage-accurate pickups, bridge saddles, tuner spacing and more.
Features:
Early-1959 model in faded Three-color Sunburst has slim-profile D-shaped maple neck and single-ply white pickguard with eight holes; Later 1959 model in faded Three-color Sunburst, Black and limited faded Sonic Blue has slim-profile D-shaped maple neck, dark rosewood slab fingerboard and three-ply mint green pickguard with 10 holes; All-new pickups wound to period-correct specs and sound; Vintage-accurate bridge saddles and tuner spacing
