Product Description

For 2014 only, Fender celebrates the diamond jubilee of the world's greatest electric guitar with the limited-edition 60th Anniversary American Vintage 1954 Stratocaster. This special guitar honors the Stratocaster's very first model year as an exciting new instrument with a tone as new and different as tomorrow, and is reverently crafted with a rich selection of features, appointments and accessories.

The two-piece ash body features a side seam and a flash-coat lacquer finish in the guitar's original two-color Sunburst. The one-piece maple neck has a comfortable 1954 profile and date stamp just below the truss rod adjustment nut, topped by a 7.25"-radius fingerboard with rolled edges and 21 vintage frets. Three new 1954 single-coil Stratocaster pickups deliver a singing original-era voice, with five-way switching complemented by an included optional three-way switch for original wiring. The guitar also features a single-ply white pickguard and white polystyrene control knobs, bone nut and round string tree, American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge with six "patent pending" saddles, vintage tuners and nickel-chrome hardware.

Special extras and accessories include a vintage-design single-stitch center-pocket tweed case; replica polishing cloth, cable, black leather strap and bridge cover; extra tremolo springs (two), and reproduction 1954 paperwork. Available during 2014 only in a limited edition of 1,954 guitars, the first 54 of which feature a special 60th anniversary "1st 54" engraved neck plate and certificate.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Vintage Beautiful"
Overall: Finally decided to pull the trigger and purchase this little beauty. I have been a Stratocaster fan since I started playing over 15 years ago. Not only do I appreciate the instrument, but also the history. This is where it all began. Expensive? Yes, but definitely worth the money and thanks to zZounds, I was able to finance this beauty and not have my girl leave me in the cold. This guitar is absolute vintage spec, but don't let that dissuade you. It plays marvelously, the only guitar that I have ever purchased and NOT had to set up. Kudos to Fender for an excellent job (they probably where able to be a bit more attentive due to the limited number of these). Looks beautiful, plays like butter and has the most amazing clean sound of all the Strats that I own. These 1954 pickups are great, nice low end with crisp highs (not ice picky) and super warm, mello mids. Played through my Deluxe Reverb, it is sonic heaven. I thought it would be a bit thin and brittle due to the vintage pickups but I was pleasantly wrong. With a little (or a lot) of overdrive this guitar sings. This is just an all around great guitar, and I absolutely love it. The included case candy is an incredible touch as well. Opening the period correct G&G case, is like opening a time capsule from 1954, all the documentation and extras was a really cool touch. If I had to make the decision again to purchase this guitar I would do it even faster. An incredible instrument at a moderate price point (no denying that) but also and iconic piece of history and a collectors item. You just can't go wrong with this guitar.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "1954 60th anniversary"
Overall: I bought the 'blemished' - the guitar has a pretty good nick on the top edge - not a big deal. this guitar has two flaws - the neck is pretty 'sticky' and needs to wiped down often( the sticky neck issue seems to be going away after the first few weeks), and the string tension is pretty tight - making bends a bit strenuous (i have gotten used to this, and i feel it gives the guitar a bit of sustain) positives - the tone is incredible, it looks amazing, great action, and all of the original accessories came with this 'blemished' guitar. on a side note - the strat i received has my birth date on the neck plate (serial number) this makes me feel like it really is MY guitar... i play the guitar nearly every day. "Can you believe the guitar has my birthday on it?" for me, this is a serious WOW factor!
Style of Music: chillwave ragtime is my usical style, although i have been known to dabble with Blainese reggaeton from time to time.
