The Fender American Original '60s Strat comes equipped with 3 Pure Vintage '65 single-coil pickups which enables the American Original to deliver its authentic yet clear and articulate voice of the 60s. These powerfully-vintage pickups are wax-potted and designed to be as period-correct as possible from its enamel-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fibre bobbins, and alnico 5 magnets. The vintage-inspired construction adds more focus and enhances the dynamic content whilst delivering warm, vintage-styled tonal characteristics. In addition, the pickup's staggered pole-pieces balances the volume and output across each string. With this, players who love to explore the decade of the 60s are certain to excel within rock and roll, psychedelic rock, blues rock, and folk rock, bringing you the powerful and enchanting tonal characteristics that 60s were known for.
With an iconic Stratocaster body, players can benefit from the two asymmetrical cutaways, which not only provide a pleasing aesthetic appeal, but promote the access to upper fingerboard shredding. Furthermore, its body is slim, sleek, and contoured to ensure long practice sessions and live performances are as comfortable as possible. The American Original Strat also features a non-locking tremolo bridge which enables players to add something a little extra to their sound. In addition, the iconic Stratocaster body is constructed from alder, which is lightweight, offering comfort and delivering a resonant, well-balanced tone with a bright attack. As well as all this, the Fender American Original '60s Strat has a lacquer finish which not only enables the wood breathe naturally and adds resonance, but will age in a distinctively appealing manner. Furthermore, the Fender American Original has a candy apple red colouring and an authentic mint green pickguard which offers a distinctively retro appearance for the player with vintage-vibe.
The American Original's neck is constructed from maple, which adds a bright attack with great sustain to the overall sound. The Fender American Original '60s Strat features a thick 60s C shaped neck profile, which enables players to have a comfortable grip. Its thick 60s styled neck is well-suited to numerous styles of play, whilst its 9.5'' fingerboard radius enhances playability. In addition, the American Original features a rosewood fingerboard that adds a smoother note to the Strat's clear and articulate voice. In addition, the rosewood also adds a sonically pleasing warmth and offers a smooth and energetic playing experience.
When many people think of an electric guitar, this is the one that leaps to mind. The Stratocaster is one of the world's most popular guitars and is an elegantly versatile creation. Not long after Fender revolutionised music with the Telecaster and the Precision Bass, in 1954 they debuted the Stratocaster and it quickly became universally regarded as the archetypal electric guitar. Sleek and stylish aesthetics, smooth playing and tonally versatile, at the heart the Stratocaster remains a fantastic instrument - producing unmistakable sound with a timeless design. A first choice among players worldwide, there is simply nothing that sings, screams, whispers, moans, roars, rocks and rolls like a Fender Stratocaster.
