Fender American Vintage '59 Stratocaster Slab Rosewood Sherwood Green Metallic
The American Vintage ’59 Stratocaster is available in two authentic versions of the transitional 1959 model—one from early that year and one from later that year. As it accompanied rock ‘n’ roll into the wild new 1960s, the 1959 Stratocaster was an instrument poised for impending greatness. That special vibe is built into the DNA of this U.S.-made guitar, based directly on real-deal 1959 models we tracked down and crafted with original tooling and pure Strat style and feel.
