Straight from Fender's USA roots, it's instilled with the exquisite craftsmanship and excellent sound that's made the Stratocaster an enduring legend of musical history.
But it's rare for a reason. A combination of exotic, premium tonewoods has been used to deliver a tonal palette that's supremely distinctive.

A guitar that breaks the mould. Masterfully crafted with an array of rare, exotic tonewoods, the Original '60s Stratocaster is certain to make your playing stand out from the rest. A flamed ash top brings scintillating brightness to your playing - particularly brilliant for making your high notes sing more sharply than ever. Enjoy a broad tonal range thanks to a sensationally responsive alder body - ready to handle any playing style you throw at it. And a neck made entirely from birdseye maple adds an extra touch of definition and crispness in every note you play.
They don't make 'em like this anymore. Loaded with a trio of Custom Shop '54 Strat single-coil pickups, this is a guitar that's bursting with classic sound. These pickups faithfully recreate the sharp, clear tones that helped send the original Strat on its way to becoming one of the most celebrated guitars in the history of music. Alnico 5 magnets used in the pickups inject an extra dose of power in the low end and midrange, balancing out the classic high-end brightness of the single-coil sound. Wherever you play along the guitar's scale, you won't have to compromise on quality.
Say hello to your most enjoyable playing experience ever. And say goodbye to hand cramp. An intricately-designed '60s "C"-shaped neck fits comfortably to the contours of your hand, ensuring a beautifully natural playing feel at every point up and down the guitar's neck. So having to stop playing after a while due to strain will be a thing of the past.
Every element of this guitar has been focused on in order to maximise playability. String bending becomes easy thanks to 21 narrow tall frets - your solos will sound tremendously sharp. Your fingers will glide smoothly from note to note thanks to the birdseye maple fingerboard's supremely sleek quality. And you'll benefit from unencumbered access to the very top of the scale thanks to a classic Stratocaster cutaway body. This is the kind of guitar you need to take your playing to godlike levels.
Bring a touch of class to your music. Simply taking a quick glance at this beautiful instrument hints at the amazing sonic power it possesses. Because it really is stunning. The eye catching pattern of the flamed ash top brings a breathtaking, natural elegance to the Strat's overall aesthetic. A black pickguard coolly offsets a classic burst finish, while vintage tuners and aged white control knobs hark back to the very first days of rock 'n' roll. Magnificent.
Quality worth protecting. This is a guitar for the ages. The American Original '60s Strat is of the kind of calibre that's fit to last for generations to come. And Fender have included a vintage hardshell case at no extra cost to help safeguard your investment. Tough and durable, the case will provide maximum protection to your guitar - wherever you take it. Because instruments this good should only get better with age.
