More about American Vintage '56 Stratocaster® Left-Handed

La American Vintage Series presenta una línea totalmente nueva de guitarras modelo época original que devuelven a la vida la historia y la herencia de Fender. Con características clave y elementos de diseño fundamentales que abarcan desde mediados de los años 50 hasta mediados de los 60, los instrumentos de la nueva American Vintage Series ahondan en las raíces de Fender, preservando con mano experta un innovador legado americano a la hora de crear guitarras y demostrando con más claridad que nunca que Fender no sólo sabe adónde quiere llegar, sino que también recuerda de dónde proviene.

Durante mucho tiempo, la American Vintage Series ha presentado algunas de las guitarras Fender más vendidas del mundo (su lanzamiento a principios de los años 80 fue de hecho una de las primeras señales de que Fender “regresaba” cuando la época de CBS terminaba). En la actualidad, Fender ha hecho borrón y cuenta nueva para dar paso a una nueva American Vintage Series con otras características, nuevas especificaciones y el nivel de precisión vintage más meticuloso. En lugar de reemplazar los modelos anteriores con otros diferentes, hemos vuelto a crear de manera completa e integral todo el concepto de reedición vintage: hemos restaurado las máquinas de matrices originales, buscado el sonido en las nuevas pastillas y reformulado los colores vintage, entre otras cosas, y siempre basándonos en las auténticas guitarras vintage, que hemos estudiado a fondo para asegurarnos de que lo hacíamos de manera correcta. Lo hemos conseguido, y es evidente, ya que cada instrumento nuevo de American Vintage produce un sonido mágico y puro.

La Stratocaster American Vintage ’56 para zurdos te lleva de vuelta a mediados de 1956, cuando el modelo era todavía nuevo y aparecía por primera vez el mástil posiblemente más preciado y famoso que jamás se había visto en un instrumento: un mástil grueso de una sola pieza de arce con suave forma de “V”. Esta meticulosa búsqueda de la autenticidad se extiende hasta el golpeador blanco de una sola capa con ocho agujeros, cuerpo ligero de aliso (fresno sobre white blonde) con contornos profundos y pastillas precisas de estilo vintage, selletas de puente, espacio para el clavijero y mucho más.

Great guitar, except the pickups are righthand staggered!! and that is a big mistake.

*EDITED NOTE FROM FENDER:
The American Vintage '56 Left Handed Strat comes with right handed staggered pickups because it’s period correct. Fender didn’t make left handed pickups in ‘56. Since it’s the American Vintage series, the guitars are period correct even for details like this.
