The Fender 70th Anniversary American Vintage II 1954 Stratocaster immerses you in the iconic design and tone that made the Stratocaster a legend. This special edition Strat celebrates the model's 70-year legacy with authentic vintage aesthetics and modern playability.

Three custom vintage-style single-coil pickups conjure the sparkling, complex tone that made the Strat famous. The synchronized tremolo bridge allows you to add expressive vibratos to your solos and riffs. With vintage-style features like the 1-ply guard and tweed case, the 70th Anniversary '54 Stratocaster lets you experience the magic of the original while enjoying modern refinements. Relive the birth of a legend with the Fender 70th Anniversary American Vintage II 1954 Stratocaster.

Resonant Ash Body with Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish for Organic Tone

Just like an original 1954 Stratocaster, the 70th Anniversary '54 Strat has a lightweight ash body finished in thin nitrocellulose lacquer. Ash provides resonant sustain that brings out the complexity in your playing. The thin nitro finish allows the wood to breathe and age gracefully, developing a patina that enhances the vintage vibe. This traditional body construction gives the 70th Anniversary '54 Stratocaster the sought-after bell-like tone that makes Stratocasters legendary.

Maple Neck and Fingerboard for Smooth Performance

This Strat's maple neck invites comfortable lead playing. Its vintage-style frets are expertly crowned for lower action and slicker bending without fretting out. The smooth 7.25" radius feels familiar to electric guitarists while providing enough roundness for chording. The quartersawn maple provides stability for reliable tuning, even with heavy vibrato use. Combined with the ash body, the maple neck gives this anniversary Stratocaster a resonant, singing voice.

Vintage-Style Single-Coil Pickups for Iconic Strat Tone

The heart of the Stratocaster's revered tone comes from its three single-coil pickups. The 70th Anniversary '54 Strat features custom vintage-style pickups wound to spec like the original 1954 models. The bridge pickup has heightened treble bite for cutting leads. The middle pickup delivers scooped mids for chiming rhythms. And the neck pickup has round lows and compressed highs for smooth jazz tones. Together these pickups give you the quintessential snap, sparkle and quack that made the Stratocaster the go-to guitar for decades of pop, rock, blues, funk and country.

Vintage-Style Accessories for an Immersive Experience

Beyond its sound and feel, the 70th Anniversary '54 Stratocaster nails the vintage vibe with period-correct parts. It features Fender's vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge for expressive vibratos. The single-line "Fender Deluxe" tuners keep your guitar in tune through wild whammy bar antics. The 1-ply pickguard and vintage switch tip enhance the '50s mojo. And the included vintage-style tweed case, complete with embroidered logo and commemorative booklet, provides the perfect vintage display between gigs. With the 70th Anniversary Vintage II '54 Stratocaster, you can experience the golden era of the Strat while enjoying modern craftsmanship.
