For the guitarist who craves pure vintage Fender style, the American Vintage series presents original-era model year guitars built with meticulous attention to accurate detail that bring Fender history and heritage to authentic and exciting new life.

The left-handed American Vintage ’56 Stratocaster guitar takes you back to mid-1956, when the model was still new and a brand-new musical phenomenon called rock ‘n’ roll was making its first raucous waves. Built with original tooling and based directly on real-deal 1956 models we tracked down, this U.S.-made guitar returns you to that electrifying era when the Strat was just beginning to stake its claim, with pure tonal magic, style and feel.

  • Deeper body contours
  • Specially voiced pickups with modern five-way switch; optional three-way switch included
  • Thick one-piece maple neck with “V”-shaped profile and comfortably rounded edges (one of the most prized and popular Stratocaster necks ever)
  • Vintage-accurate bridge saddles, tuner spacing and more
  • Single-ply eight-hole white pickguard
