Overview

The Fender American Original ‘60s Stratocaster, seen here in Olympic White, gives you the fantastic experience of playing a legendary ‘60s Fender Strat with a great modern feel.

Return of The Sixties Stratocaster

As the world of music and popular culture as a whole changed, the Stratocaster grew more mature. The eggshell white pickguard was traded in for an updated mint green while the original Maple fingerboard was swapped out for Rosewood – giving the clear and articulate voice of the Strat an even smoother note.

With the Fender American Original ‘60s Stratocaster you’ll find these refinements have been retained while a modern feel and pickup switching have been added, bringing this legendary guitar roaring into modern day music.

Fender American Original ‘60s Stratocaster in Olympic White Key Features:

  • Alder Body with Lacquer Finish
  • Three Pure Vintage '65 Single-Coil Stratocaster Pickups
  • Thick ‘60s “C”-Shaped Neck Profile
  • 9.5" Radius Fingerboard
  • Vintage-Style Hardware
  • Six-Point Synchronized Tremolo Bridge
  • Includes Vintage-Style Hardshell Case

Crafting the American Original ‘60s Stratocaster

Alder has been used to craft the iconic double-cutaway design of the Stratocaster body, allowing for easy reach of the higher frets – essential for guitar solos, lead guitar and other adventurous styles.

The Maple neck has a thick ‘60s C shape profile which is perfect for a solid and substantial grip and features a 9.5” radius round-laminated Rosewood fingerboard which enhances playability while sporting Vintage Tall size frets – another nod to this incredible guitar’s legendary origins.

The gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish on the American Original ‘60s Stratocaster is another great feature as it allows the wood to “breathe” naturally with resonant tone while also aging in a distinctive and extremely appealing way.

Vintage Style Hardware and Electronics

Allowing you to get that fantastic, retro whammy sound – a staple of classic rock ‘n’ roll - in your own music, the Fender American Original ‘60s Stratocaster comes equipped with a Pure Vintage 6 Saddle Synchronised Tremolo.

Up on the headstock, you’ll find six Pure Vintage Single Line "Fender Deluxe" tuning machines allowing you to precisely, and securely tune your strings while they add an extra bit of vintage aesthetic to this gorgeous guitar.

Retaining the legendary sound of a true 1960s Fender Stratocaster, the three Pure Vintage Grey-Bottom ’65 Single-Coil Stratocaster pickups are as period-correct as possible.

From their enamel-coated coil wire and cloth-covered output wires to the fibre bobbins and use of Alnico 5 magnets – these amazing pickups really give you that authentic ‘60s Fender sound.

A five-way pickup selector switch allows you to choose how you’d like to use the pickups:

  • Position 1. Bridge Pickup
  • Position 2. Bridge and Middle Pickup
  • Position 3. Middle Pickup
  • Position 4. Middle and Neck Pickup
  • Position 5. Neck Pickup

A set of controls in the form of Master Volume, Tone 1 (for the neck and middle pickup) and Tone 2 (for the bridge pickup) allow you to really tailor your sound to your exact liking.

Due to this amazing versatility, the Fender Stratocaster has been a favourite for guitarists of many genres.

Includes Hardshell Case

In keeping with the original ‘60s era theme, the Fender American Original ‘60s Stratocaster even comes with a vintage-style hardshell case – the perfect way to store your guitar and protect it on your way to gigs.

With its authentic features such as the original-era body radii, vintage-style hardware and incredible electronics, the Fender American Original ‘60s Stratocaster allows you to experience the amazing style and tone that has made the Fender Stratocaster an iconic electric guitar.
