American Vintage II 1961 Stratocaster®, Slab Rosewood Fingerboard, Olympic White with Hard Shell Case

American Vintage II 1961 Stratocaster®, Slab Rosewood Fingerboard, Olympic White - A Tribute to Fender's Golden Era

The Fender® American Vintage II series presents a remarkably accurate take on the revolutionary designs that altered the course of musical history. Built with period-accurate bodies, necks, and hardware, premium finishes, and meticulously voiced, year-specific pickups, each instrument captures the essence of authentic Fender craftsmanship and tone.

Iconic 1961 Stratocaster Design

During the late '50s and early '60s, the popularity of Fender musical instruments flourished. By 1961, the Stratocaster had taken on a more refined aesthetic, with a vibrant 3-Color Sunburst and a bold black edge, topped with a 3-ply pickguard accenting the Strat's signature curves. The American Vintage II 1961 Stratocaster reproduces this quintessential tone and feel of the original with a premium alder body, a trio of Pure Vintage 1961 Stratocaster pickups, and a medium "C"-Shaped maple neck mated with a 7.25" radius slab rosewood fingerboard.

Period-Accurate Hardware and Finishes

The vintage-accurate synchronized tremolo with a cold-rolled steel block and bent steel saddles, single-line "Fender Deluxe" tuners, and 3-ply pickguard provide an authentic look and feel. The 1961 Stratocaster in Olympic White is a true celebration of Fender's iconic design and craftsmanship.

Unmatched Quality and Craftsmanship

The instruments in the American Vintage II series are direct descendants of the original Fenders, designed for players with a fine appreciation for vintage Fender tone and feel and built with unmatched quality, down to the last screw. These are Fender electrics in their purest form: Fender American Vintage II, the stuff of legends.
