American Vintage series brings all the sheen and pizzazz of the `50s and `60s electric guitars back. These models are the most faithful recreations of this era guitars the world has ever seen, and if they were subject to the aging process, one might rightfully think these guitars have been around for 5, 6 decades. The new lineup of American Vintage series for 2012 is opened up by `56 Stratocaster. This model comes with historically accurate body measures. Body is made of alder for the Black and 2-Color Sunburst and of ash for the Aged White Blonde color option. Solid and flat, this model only features a classic white plastic pickguard on the top. Bridge section sports an American vintage-styled synchronized tremolo bridge with six saddles, chrome plating and string-through-body construction. Pickups installed on this model come in S/S/S configuration, and they are New American Vintage `56 Strat® single-coils especially made and voiced for this Strat. Master volume, two tone knobs and a five-position blade switch complete the classic controls section. Neck is made of maple and it sports a soft V contour, characteristic for the original `56 Strat. It is bolted to the body and topped with 21-fret maple fingerboard with black dot inlays. Chrome-plated tuners, 25-1/2" scale and 1.65" bone nut conclude the specs list.
