Fender American Vintage II 1957 Strat - 2-Color Sunburst
Special Offer

With its alluring curves, sparkling sounds and groundbreaking tremolo bridge, Fender’s new 1954 Stratocaster® was a phenomenon, unlike anything the world had ever seen. By 1957, the Stratocaster had crystallized into a mid-century masterpiece.

Featuring a trio of Pure Vintage '57 Stratocaster pickups, sweeping body contours and a supremely comfortable “V”-shape neck with a 7.25” radius maple fingerboard, the American Vintage II 1957 Stratocaster reproduces the quintessential tone and feel of the original. Other appointments include a vintage-accurate synchronized tremolo with cold rolled steel block and bent steel saddles, single-line “Fender Deluxe” tuners and a single-ply pickguard.

Offered in three stunning nitrocellulose lacquer finishes – 2-Color Sunburst and Sea Foam Green over alder and Vintage Blonde over ash – the American Vintage II 1957 Stratocaster celebrates a true icon of Fender instrument design.

  • Alder or Ash body
  • Gloss Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish
  • Pure Vintage '57 Single-Coil Strat pickups
  • “V”-Shaped Neck Profile
  • Pure Vintage Synchronized Tremolo with Bent Steel Saddles
  • Pure Vintage Single-Line “Fender Deluxe” Tuners
  • Hardshell Case Included
 

Gloss Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish

Nitrocellulose lacquer, as used on ‘50s and ‘60’s Fender instruments, is a premium finish that reveals the instrument’s true tonal character

Ash or Alder Body

Ash is a warm-toned wood with clear, bright highs, defined midrange and a beautiful grain pattern. Alder has a well-balanced tone with beefy mids and a robust low-end.

7.25” Radius Maple Fingerboard

The 7.25”-radius fingerboard provides the comfortable playing feel of a vintage instrument, while vintage-tall frets make it easier to bend notes.

1957 “V”-Shape Neck

In vintage years, the shape and thickness of Fender guitar necks varied tremendously. The American Vintage II Series features authentic neck profiles from Fender’s past.

Pure Vintage '57 Stratocaster Pickups

Specially voiced to reproduce the authentic sound and performance of individual model years, Pure Vintage pickups are constructed just like pickups from Fender’s golden years. Materials include cloth-covered wire, fiber bobbins and alnico magnets.

Vintage-style Hardware

From the bridge to the string tree and tuning machines, every piece of American Vintage II hardware is manufactured to look, sound and function just like it did on the originals. Much of the American Vintage II hardware is still manufactured on the original ‘50s and ‘60s era Fender factory machines.
