Fender American Vintage 56 Strat Maple Aged White Blonde Guitar

With key features and pivotal design elements spanning the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s, new Fender American Vintage series instruments delve deep into Fender's roots—expertly preserving an innovative U.S. guitar-making legacy and vividly demonstrating like never before that Fender not only knows where it's going, but also remembers where it came from.

Rather than just replacing the previous models with different ones, Fender have completely and comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage-reissue concept—restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more—based on actual vintage guitars we tracked down to make sure we had it right. Fender did the work, and it shows, because there's pure tonal magic in each new American Vintage instrument.

The Fender American Vintage '56 Stratocaster® guitar takes you straight back to mid-1956, when the model was still new and when what is quite possibly the most prized and popular neck ever affixed to the instrument first appeared—a thick one-piece maple neck with a soft "V" shape and comfortably rounded edges. Such meticulous authenticity even extends to the single-ply white pickguard with eight holes, lightweight alder body (ash on White Blonde) with deep contours, and vintage-accurate pickups, bridge saddles, tuner spacing and more.
