Fender American Vintage II 1961 Stratocaster Electric Guitar - Available at Irvine Art and Music

Celebrate the golden era of surf rock with the Fender American Vintage II 1961 Stratocaster Electric Guitar, now available at Irvine Art and Music. This exquisite reissue captures the essence of the iconic 1961 Stratocaster, meticulously crafted to deliver the same unparalleled tone, feel, and aesthetics that made the original a legend. Perfect for vintage enthusiasts and modern players alike, the American Vintage II series combines period-accurate features with Fender's renowned craftsmanship, creating a guitar that's both a piece of history and a powerful musical tool.

Classic Stratocaster Construction

The Fender American Vintage II 1961 Stratocaster boasts a premium alder body, offering a balanced and resonant tone. Paired with a maple neck carved to a comfortable "C"-shape profile and a 7.25" radius slab rosewood fingerboard, this guitar provides an authentic playing experience. The nitrocellulose lacquer finish not only enhances the guitar's vintage look but also allows the wood to breathe and resonate naturally, giving you a rich, full sound.

Pure Vintage '61 Single-Coil Pickups

Experience the iconic sound of the early '60s with three Pure Vintage '61 single-coil Strat pickups. These meticulously voiced pickups deliver the classic mid-century tone, characterized by bright treble, punchy midrange, and a smooth low end. Whether you're playing shimmering leads or textured rhythms, the American Vintage II 1961 Stratocaster ensures every note is rich with vintage character. The traditional 5-way pickup switch, along with dual tone controls and a master volume knob, allows for versatile sound shaping.

Vintage-Inspired Hardware

The American Vintage II 1961 Stratocaster is equipped with vintage-accurate hardware, including a synchronized tremolo bridge with bent steel saddles and Pure Vintage single-line "Fender Deluxe" tuners. These components not only provide stable tuning and precise intonation but also add to the guitar's classic aesthetic. The real bone nut further enhances the traditional Stratocaster string response, making every playing session a joy.

Authenticity in Every Detail

From its period-correct design to its meticulously crafted components, the Fender American Vintage II 1961 Stratocaster is a testament to Fender's dedication to quality and authenticity. This guitar is more than a musical instrument; it's a piece of history brought to life.
