The American Vintage ’56 Stratocaster® 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, comfortably rounded
edges and a then-new butterfly string tree on the headstock. 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 (alnico 3 pickups debuted
in 1956), bridge saddles, tuner spacing and more.
