Fender American Original 50's Stratocaster - Aztec Gold MN
Introducing the new Fender American Original series - classic design made new. It may be hard to imagine now but Fender guitars were incredibly futuristic at one time. In 1951, when Fender unveiled the Telecaster for the first time, many said it would never sell. That same year the Precision bass introduced frets, electrification and a strange double cut-away body to what had always been a stand up fretless instrument. Three years later, when the Stratocaster came out it's 3 pickup design was considered to be wild. Nobody at the time could see how there instruments would change the world. Yet here we are, decades later, and there's still nothing better than these original designs. So, Fender have curated the best parts - like the luscious lacquer finishes, the maple neck on the '56 Strat or the unmistakable pickups of a '52 Tele - and combined them to make a 'greatest hits' version of each instrument. The revolution may have started in 1951, but it's still going strong to this day.

When we released the Stratocaster in 1954, we didn’t set out to create a classic - but we did.
The Stratocaster’s sleek style, articulate sound and plethora of innovations redefined electric guitar and opened up a brave new world of musical possibilities. The American Original ‘50s Stratocaster maintains Fender’s legendary original-era style and ground-breaking tone, while adding modern feel and pickup switching. The wax-potted Pure Vintage ‘59 single-coil Stratocaster pickups are as period-correct as possible, from the Formvar-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets.
The thick “Soft V” neck profile is perfect for chording, while the 9.5”-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, it also ages in a distinctively appealing way.
The American Original ‘50s Stratocaster is the best way to experience the performance, style and tone that made Fender a household name among guitarists.
