Fender 60th Anniversary American Vintage 1954 Stratocaster Electric Guitar
In 2014, Fender celebrates the diamond jubilee of arguably the world's greatest electric guitar with the limited-edition 60th Anniversary American Vintage 1954 Stratocaster. This special guitar honors the Stratocaster's very first model year as an exciting new instrument with a tone as new and different as tomorrow, and is reverently crafted with a rich selection of features, appointments and accessories.
The two-piece ash body features a sideseam and a flash-coat lacquer finish in the guitar's original two-color Sunburst. The one-piece maple neck has a comfortable 1954 profile and date stamp just below the truss rod adjustment nut, topped by a 7.25"-radius fingerboard with rolled edges and 21 vintage frets. Three modern 1954 single-coil Stratocaster pickups deliver a singing original-era voice, with five-way switching complemented by an included optional three-way switch for original wiring. The guitar also features a single-ply white pickguard and white polystyrene control knobs, bone nut and round string tree, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge with six special saddles, vintage tuners and nickel-chrome hardware.
Special extras and accessories include a vintage-design single-stitch center-pocket tweed case; replica polishing cloth, cable, black leather strap and bridge cover; extra tremolo springs (two), and reproduction 1954 paperwork.
Available in a limited edition of 1,954 guitars, each of which comes with a special 1954 Anniversary Strat Certificate.
