Fender's Stratocaster has an incredibly storied history that is exemplified in the American Original '50s Stratocaster. This particular American Original is a limited edition piece, made in small quantities for 2019 as a tribute to legendary Las Vegas lounge performer and guitarist Mary Kaye. Its Mary Kaye White Blonde finish evokes the classic look and feel of the original, with a transparent white finish and gold hardware. The guitar's ash body, lacquer finish, "Soft V" profile maple neck, 9.5" radius fingerboard put the unmistakable feel of '50s-era Strats right at your fingertips. Three Pure Vintage '59 single-coils are specifically voiced to replicate the iconic Stratocaster sound that made it a household name. The American Original is also outfitted with Vintage-Correct hardware, furthering its authentic in-hand feel from the bridge to the tuners. It even has period correct body and neck radii; Fender has left no stone unturned when it cam to replicating a '50s original. With its incredible attention to detail, vintage hardware, and authentic Fender feel and tone, the American Original '50s Stratocaster is a guitar you surely won't want to miss out on.
