More about American Vintage '56 Stratocaster®

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 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” y bordes delicadamente redondeados. 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.

One more American Vintage!

(5.0)
Maitreyoda007 on March 6, 2014 (updated March 16, 2014)

After the vintage '65 I bought last month, I found a marvelous aged white blonde '56. Really light, mine seems to have a one piece swamp ash body.
The neck, fatter than my '65, holds really well in hand. The tone of these new pickup sounds so good!
Finally, the look of this guitar is just so great!

I love it!

A Magical Instrument

(5.0)
peterbondmusic on January 12, 2014

I have the aged white blonde model, this is a magical guitar. Truly one of the best guitars I've ever played. I went into the store thinking I might get a maple neck American Standard, but when this was put in my hands it was one of those "this is my guitar" moments. I had also played the American Standard, but it was not even in the ballpark (although still a fine guitar) of this Vintage '56. This guitar has such an extraordinary subtle response to touch, and such a fine tone (or many tones). It has a striking beauty and the neck feels amazing with your hand wrapped around it. I bought this model new a few months ago and it gets better and better the more it is played. It's like 1956 made brand new, there is a freshness and excitement to this instrument, I still feel happier just opening its tweed vintage case...

This guitar is not a trip through time, it is past coming back to your present hands. If you want to experience a Strat as it was you should give this new old stock a chance, will be your chance too

I've owned One Since 1980

I purchased my Red Stratocaster 1956 Vintage series in 1980 and have loved and played it ever since.
It had fantastic tone and playability when it was new and thirty three years later it sounds and plays even better (like a fine wine).
The only thing I changed was the pickup selector, from a 3 way to a 5 way (which was supplied).
If only Fender could bottle the essence that only age brings.
