The Fender American Original '50s Stratocaster is a dead ringer for a classic '59 — save for a few modern refinements. The American Original '50s' lightweight alder body and Soft "V" maple neck are staples of this era, as are its vintage-tall frets, synchronized trem system, and nitro lacquer finish. Yet an enlarged 9.5" fingerboard radius (from 7.25") gives the American Original '50s Strat an advantage for lead work. Meanwhile, a trio of painstaking Pure Vintage '59 pickups with period-correct wire, bobbins, and pole pieces — wax potted for feedback control and wired for 5-way switching — puts this instrument in a class all its own.
This one is slightly used and shows no fret wear. I could not find a ding, dent or scratch. The plastic protective sheeting is still on the pick guard and back plate. The pickguard is slightly lifted as is common on these models. Replacements are cheap. The strings are still from the factory so you'll need to have this one set up to your liking. This guitar ships in the original Fender Tweed case with Certicate and case candy as shown.
