Learn about the new Fender American Original Series!

We are excited to have the new Fender American Original Series at Sims! Read below to learn more about the series and come in today to try out some of these incredible guitars!

CLASSIC DESIGN MADE NEW

Originality rejects the norm in search of something better. It’s part of the Fender heritage, and it lives on in the American Original Series. These “best-of-the-decade” versions of our most iconic instruments are updated to be even more playable for the modern musician. 

 

ERA-SPECIFIC NECK PROFILES

Every curve and line of the necks are accurate to the historic originals. Sculpted for a vintage-style playing feel, we even used period-accurate techniques to carve and attach the fingerboards. They’re comfortable and ideal for any playing style.

 

NITROCELLULOSE LACQUER FINISH

American Original instruments feature one of the great original-era Fender electric guitar finishes— a lacquer finish. Lets the wood “breathe” naturally with resonant tone and ages in a distinctively appealing way.

 
AMERICAN ORIGINAL ‘50S STRATOCASTER®
When we released the Stratocaster in 1954, its iconic style, articulate sound and plethora of innovations redefined electric guitar and opened up a brave new world of musical possibilities. The American Original ‘50s Stratocaster maintains Fender’s legendary original-era style and ground-breaking tone, while adding modern feel and pickup switching.

- Ash body with lacquer finish

- Three Pure Vintage ‘59 single-coil Stratocaster pickups

- Thick "Soft V”-shaped neck profile; 9.5”-radius fingerboard
