Fender Limited Edition American Vintage 1959 Pine Stratocaster
Fender’s original prototype instruments were fashioned from pine and now, with the 2017 Limited Edition American Vintage ’59 Pine Stratocaster we’ve come full circle. This body wood began its functional life over 100 years ago, as part of the Buckstaff Furniture Company’s facility in Oshkosh, WI before it was reclaimed, cooked and fashioned into an instrument. The grain, knotholes and man-made imperfections make each one unique.
For authentic, vintage-inspired Fender tone, the 2017 Limited Edition American Vintage ’59 Pine Stratocaster is loaded with three American Vintage ’59 single-coil Strat® pickups. Crisp- sounding and clear, these pickups can easily match the needs of any musical genre. Topped by 21 narrow-tall frets for easy bending, the 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard is ideal for most playing styles, offering enough arc for comfortable chording while remaining flat enough for wide bends.
With its classic, original-era sound and style, the 2017 Limited Edition American Vintage ’59 Pine Stratocaster is an inspiring tribute to Fender’s first instruments.
