Fender American Vintage ’59 Stratocaster® Slab Rosewood Fingerboard Sherwood Green Metallic


For the guitarist who craves pure vintage Fender style, the American Vintage series presents original-era model year guitars built with meticulous attention to accurate detail that bring Fender history and heritage to authentic and exciting new life.

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.
