1959 was an important and highly evolutionary year for the Stratocaster ®
because that’s when slimmer necks, rosewood fingerboards and multi-ply
laminated pickguards first appeared.

The American Vintage ’59 Stratocaster® presents two versions of that
year’s pivotal transitional model; one from early 1959 and one from
later 1959. Both have the slim profile D shaped maple neck of that
year, with the earlier version featuring a maple fingerboard, faded
Three-color Sunburst finish and single-ply white pickguard with
eight holes; the later version (in faded Three-color Sunburst, Black
and limited faded Sonic Blue finishes) featuring a dark rosewood
slab fingerboard and three-ply mint green pickguard with 10 holes
and vintage-style edge bevels. Both also feature a lightweight alder
body, aged plastic knobs and vintage accurate pickups, bridge saddles,
tuner spacing and more.
