What Haworth Guitars say:
The Fender American Original '50s Stratocaster with Maple Fingerboard is a high-quality Vintage USA Strat model by Fender.
At Haworth Guitars we love this Fender American Original 50s Stratocaster Guitar's vintage 1950s look and feel, ash body, it's Pure Vintage synchronized tremolo, bone nut, comfortable Soft V maple neck, 21 vintage tall frets and it's traditional nitrocellulose lacquer finish as well as the Pure Vintage '59 single-coil pickups.
What Fender has to say:
When we released the Stratocaster in 1954, we didn’t set out to create a classic—but we did. The Stratocaster’s sleek 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.
