OVERVIEW

A glorious celebration of the great guitar's first year.

This special guitar honors the Stratocaster's very first model year and is finely crafted with a rich selection of features and appointments, in addition to a New-Old-Stock treatment that creates the effect of a well-preserved, yet vintage instrument.

The one-piece ash body is wonderfully light and responsive. It bares a nitrocellulose lacquer finish in a choice of colors that don't inhibit in any way the body's natural brightness or resonance.

The one-piece quartersawn maple neck has a wonderfully comfortable 1954 "U"-shaped profile and tinted lacquer finish. The maple fingerboard has a 9.5" radius, slightly flatter than the original, and twenty-one 6105 frets for smooth modern playability.

Three 1954 single-coil Stratocaster pickups deliver a singing original-era voice. They're not overwound and have just the right amount of response to capture all the gorgeous tone that the ash body and maple neck produce. A 5-way switch, instead of the original 3-way, is added to this vintage recreation, bringing the mixed-pickup settings that Strat players rely on.

Other features include a single-ply white pickguard, synchronized tremolo bridge with six "patent pending" saddles and serial number-stamped trem plate (a special 1954 touch), vintage-style tuners and nickel-chrome hardware. The guitar comes in a tweed "center-pocket" case with Stratocaster 60th Anniversary embroidery and an included 60th Anniversary commemorative book.
