The Fender FSR Limited Edition Roasted Ash American Vintage '56 Stratocaster Electric Guitar in a Natural finish is a sweet rendition of a classic model that guitarists of all ages will adore. Built using the same tooling methods as the original '56 model, this American Vintage series guitar is set to become a classic.
Sweet Strat' body
The Fender American Vintage '56 Stratocaster is based on the same ground-breaking model that has become a favourite amongst players around the world for decades. Built using roasted ash, the guitar is treated to a slender yet resilient layer of protection to allow it to resonate freely. As you'd expect from a Stratocaster, the body is ergonomically designed to maximise playing comfort, and the double-cutaway body ensures that the highest frets are within easy reach.
Fast-playing Strat' neck
Fitted to the body is a sweet maple neck, which is shaped to Fender's thick soft "V"-shape profile to create a fast playing feel in the hand. The neck has been treated to a Fender flash coat lacquer finish to enhance the fast playing feel. Married to the neck is a maple fingerboard, which has been shaped to a 7.25-inch radius to ensure lightning licks can be executed with effortless grace. Black dot position inlays guide your way in understated fashion, allowing your fingers to explore the neck in its entirety.
Sophisticated Strat' tones
Equipped with a trio of American Vintage single-coil pickups across the neck, middle, and bridge positions, the Fender American Vintage '56 Stratocaster delivers a wide range of tones that sparkle brilliantly. Whatever style of music you turn your hand to, the Stratocaster can do it all, and once you start laying down some riffs, you'll understand immediately why so many have fallen in love with this guitar. Control comes in the form of an eggshell style master volume pot, a tone pot for the neck pickup, a tone pot for the bridge/middle pickups, and a five-position pickup selector switch.
The body is home to a 6-saddle American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, which is designed to create a seamless connection between strings and body for peerless vibrato control. The headstock is home to a single line of “Fender Deluxe” vintage-style tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with dutiful precision. Every model is supplied with an updated deluxe vintage tweed case to keep your guitar safe in style, whether you're at home or on the move.
