As the world changed in the '60s, the Strat changed, too. It mellowed out with a smooth rosewood fretboard and the look of a mint green pickguard, but still maintained its clarity of voice. The American Original '60s Stratocaster captures that original vibe and adds a modern 9.5" radius to accommodate the desires of modern players. Loaded with period-correct and vintage-style pickups and hardware, it's like a time machine with extra-plush seating.
