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, featuring a maple fingerboard and single ply pickguard with 10 holes and vintage-style edge bevels. It features a lightweight alder body, aged plastic knobs and vintage-accurate pickups, bridge saddles, tuner spacing and more.

This second hand guitar is in excellent condition, with only one minor ding on the side and a very small dent near the strap button, that’s it. Frets are like new. Comes with its original case and original documents-case candies.
