Model Overview:
The American Vintage series offers meticulous recreations of historic designs from Fender’s golden era, with the highest quality in USA build and design, and the very best vintage-accurate components and hardware. Late ’59 was a pivotal time for the stratocaster and the American Vintage ’59 reissue perfectly captures this transitional time of design, featuring the slim-profile “D”-shaped maple neck of that year, a rosewood slab fingerboard and three-ply mint green pickguard with 10 holes, vintage-style edge bevels and a lightweight alder body, aged plastic knobs and vintage-accurate pickups, bridge saddles, tuner spacing and more.
