The Fender American Original Series takes over where the Vintage series left off and includes a couple of new tricks up its sleeve that make this an even better playing experience than ever before.
Using period accurate manufacturing methods to create the Pure Vintage '59 single-coil Stratocaster pickups including using Formvar-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets, Fender have captured the distinctive tone of the era more accurately than ever before.
A comfortable neck with a classic soft V profile imitates that from the legendary decade and gives the player a strong thumb guideline in order to follow up the neck.
One of the most notable features is the addition of a modern 6-point synchronized tremolo bridge which provides additional sustain compared to the usual 2-point. It also gives a far more stability when using the trem, ensuring your guitar will remain in tune after constant use.
