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.

INTRODUCING THE

AMERICAN ORIGINAL '50S STRATOCASTER®

LACQUER FINISH
LACQUER FINISH

The nitrocellulose lacquer finish not only lets the body breathe with its true tonal character, it also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way.

PURE VINTAGE ‘59 PICKUPS

American Original instruments feature specially voiced pickups crafted to reproduce the authentic sound and performance of individual model years.

THICK "SOFT V" NECK SHAPE
THICK "SOFT V" NECK SHAPE

The thick “Soft V”-shaped neck slightly smooths the sharpness of a “V” profile, rounding it out so it’s more comfortable for rhythm and lead playing.

VINTAGE-ACCURATE BODY AND NECK RADII
VINTAGE-ACCURATE BODY AND NECK RADII

Original-era fans can rest assured every curve and line of the body and neck are accurate to the historic originals.

VINTAGE-CORRECT HARDWARE

From the bridge to the string tree and tuning machines, every piece of hardware is just like the original.

FINGERBOARD & FRETS
FINGERBOARD & FRETS

This 9.5”-radius fingerboard is slightly flatter than a vintage-style 7.25” radius, providing a comfortable fret-hand feel. Vintage-tall frets make it easier to bend notes without fretting out.
