Replay Guitar Exchange and Fender. Both American originals. Fender’s American Original Series are “best-of-the-decade” versions of Fender’s most iconic instruments and are updated to be even more playable for the modern musician. Think of them as modern twists on the retired American Vintage Reissue Series. Fender’s American Original instruments offer specially voiced pickups crafted for authentic sound of specific model years, recreating vintage Fender tone. Lacquer finishes lets the wood “breathe” naturally with resonant tone. Classic designs were made new and Replay Guitar Exchange is thrilled to be able to offer these instruments to you.
The Fender American Original ’60s Stratocaster like this instrument finished in classic 3 color sunburst, reflects a period of change both for Fender and for pop culture as a whole. The 1960s saw the Strat evolve slightly as it grew up, and now it receives even more modern touches. In the 60s the fingerboard was switched from the original maple to rosewood, which added a smoother note to the Strat’s clear, articulate voice. The American Original ‘60s Stratocaster like this instrument keeps this and other refinements intact while adding modern feel and pickup switching to the iconic instrument that helped birth guitar rock as we know it. Features include an alder body with lacquer finish, three Pure Vintage ‘65 single-coil Stratocaster pickups, and a thick "60s C”-shaped neck profile with a comfortable 9.5”-radius fingerboard.
