GREAT NECK!! FITS FANTASTIC IN THE HAND! LOW ACTION IF DESIRED!! Stunning see thru white blond color!!!
This one is as close to mint as they come!!! Some pick marks on the guard and one minuscule paint chip where the neck joins the body (cant be seen in players position). Playsand sounds incredible!! the 59 pickups have sparkle clarity, glassiness and throatiness! Real organic sounding!! Check out the original solder joints!! I love the fact that the american originals have the tone control hooked up to the bridge pickup unlike american vintage reissues!!! Beautiful looking maple tinted neck with minimum fret wear!! A ton of case candy including COA!!! Original hard shell case is real clean also (see pic)!
The guitar weighs 7.8 lbs!

Combining the vibe of a ’50s original with modern pickup switching and feel, the American Original ’50s Strat is the best way to experience why the Stratocaster was an instant hit with guitarists. With a classic “Soft-V” neck profile offset with a modern 9.5″ fretboard radius, it’s comfortable for both chording and single-note lines. The Pure Vintage ’59 pickups are as period correct as possible, from the cloth-covered hookup wires to the fiber bobbins and alnico V magnets and the nitro-finished body is alder or ash, depending on choice of finish. Vintage-style tuners and 6-point synchronized tremolo round out the package.

21-fret nitro-finished, soft-V 9.5″ radius maple on maple neck
Pure Vintage ’59 alnico V, single-coil Stratocaster pickups with 5-way switch
