During the late '50s and early '60s, the popularity of Fender musical instruments flourished, and although the Fender assortment had expanded to include many great new instruments, the Stratocaster® reigned supreme. By 1961, the Stratocaster had taken on a more refined aesthetic, with a 3-Color Sunburst reformulated with a more vibrant red and bolder black edge, topped with a 3-ply pickguard accenting the Strat's signature curves.

Featuring a premium alder body, a trio of Pure Vintage 1961 Stratocaster pickups and a medium "C"-Shaped maple neck mated with a 7.25" radius slab rosewood fingerboard, the American Vintage II 1961 Stratocaster reproduces the quintessential tone and feel of the original. Other appointments include a vintage-accurate synchronized tremolo with cold rolled steel block and bent steel saddles, single-line "Fender Deluxe" tuners and 3-ply pickguard.


Features:
  • Alder Body
  • Gloss Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish
  • Pure Vintage '61 Single-Coil Strat® pickups
  • "C"-Shaped Neck Profile
  • Slab Rosewood Fingerboard
  • Pure Vintage Synchronized Tremolo with Bent Steel Saddles

    GLOSS NITROCELLULOSE LACQUER FINISH
    Nitrocellulose lacquer, as used on ‘50s and ‘60’s Fender instruments, is a premium finish that reveals the instrument’s true tonal character.
    ALDER BODY
    Alder has a well-balanced tone with beefy mids and a robust low-end.
    7.25” RADIUS SLAB-ROSEWOOD FINGERBOARD
    The 7.25”-radius fingerboard provides the comfortable playing feel of a vintage instrument, while vintage-tall frets make it easier to bend notes without fretting out.
    1961 “C”-SHAPE NECK
    In vintage years, the shape and thickness of Fender guitar necks varied tremendously. The American Vintage II Series features authentic neck profiles from Fender’s past.
    PURE VINTAGE '61 STRATOCASTER PICKUPS
    Specially voiced to reproduce the authentic sound and performance of individual model years, Pure Vintage pickups are constructed just like pickups from Fender’s golden years. Materials include cloth-covered wire, fiber bobbins and alnico magnets.
    VINTAGE-STYLE HARDWARE
    From the bridge to the string tree and tuning machines, every piece of American Vintage II hardware is manufactured to look, sound and function just like it did on the originals. Much of the American Vintage II hardware is still manufactured on the original ‘50s and ‘60s era Fender factory machines.
