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.

By 1973, now-classic CBS design cues had become standard spec and were widely used by rock, funk, fusion, and prog players around the world. Weekly late night music television shows like Don Kirshner's Rock Concert, In Concert, and Midnight Special provided more exposure than ever for Fender instruments, further cementing the Stratocaster's dominance as a pop culture phenomenon.

The American Vintage II 1973 Stratocaster exudes the spirit of the era and is outfitted with a trio of Pure Vintage '73 staggered pole pickups, a large headstock with dual string trees, a convenient "Bullet" style truss rod nut, and a three-bolt neck plate with Micro-Tilt mechanism. The "C"-shape maple neck plays like a dream with a 7.25" radius rosewood or maple fingerboard and vintage tall frets. Additional features include vintage-style "F" stamped tuners and a synchronized tremolo with bent steel saddles and cold rolled steel block.

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 read more last screw. These are Fender electrics in their purest form: Fender American Vintage II, the stuff of legends.
