Fender American Original '50s Stratocaster Overview.

For 2020 the extremely popular vintage inspired Fender American Original Series has a few new additions which we think look great! Due to popular demand there is now a Fender American Original 70s Telecaster Custom which is available in three different colours, Mocha, Vintage Blonde and 3-Colour Sunburst also there is now a Fender American Original 60s Telecaster thinline available in Surf Green, Aged Natural and 3-Colour Sunburst. Adding to that they have updated a few colour options for the Fender American Original 60s Stratocaster which is now available in the extremely popular Shell Pink and the American Original 50s Precision Bass is now in Aztec Gold to name a few.

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.

    Words cannot describe how stunning this guitar is! Beautiful thick soft v neck. Don’t be scared, I have small hands and it is one of the most comfortable guitars I’ve ever played.
