This is the new and latest version of the american vintage series!
Fender’s American Vintage series introduces an all-new lineup of original-era model year guitars
that bring Fender history and heritage to authentic and exciting new life. With key features and pivotal
design elements spanning the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s, new American Vintage series instruments
delve deep into Fender’s roots—expertly preserving an innovative U.S. guitar-making legacy and vividly
demonstrating like never before that Fender not only knows where it’s going, but also remembers where it came from.
The American Vintage Series has long presented some of Fender’s best-selling guitars (their early-’80s
introduction, in fact, was one of the first signs that Fender was “back” as the CBS era ended).
Today, Fender has boldly cleared the slate to make way for a fresh American Vintage series with new features,
new specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet. Rather than just replacing the previous
models with different ones, the entire vintage-reissue concept has been completely and comprehensively
re-imagined—restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more—based
on actual vintage guitars designers tracked down to ensure even greater accuracy.
All the new American Vintage Series guitars feature thick and slim necks with profiles and edges carefully
re-sculpted to reflect even greater period-correct authenticity, with both maple and rosewood fingerboards,
vintage-style frets and bone nuts; all-new vintage-style pickups wound to period-correct specs and sound
to accurately reflect specific model years, and even specific periods within specific model years; retooled
pickguards, parts and hardware designed to accurately reflect specific model years (and again, even
specific periods within specific model years), and standard and custom-color
finishes re-formulated for even greater period-correct authenticity.
The new guitars are the American Vintage ’56, ’59 and ’65 Stratocaster® models (’56 model also in left-handed version),
American Vintage ’58 and ’64 Telecaster® models (’64 model also in left-handed version), American
Vintage ’65 Jazzmaster® and ’65 Jaguar®. Also, the American Vintage ’52 Telecaster returns to the fold
(in right- and left-handed versions) with body, neck and pickups refined with the best features—tones,
curves, perimeters, radii and more—from a handful of extraordinary ’52 Telecaster specimens examined by Fender craftsmen.=[
