Built from reclaimed pine over 100 years old, the Fender Exotic Series American Vintage '59 Pine Stratocaster is reminiscent of Fender's early Strat prototypes. The American Vintage '59 Pine Stratocaster is built just like a 1959 original: you get a pine body, a slim-profile D-shaped maple neck, a maple fingerboard, and vintage-style appointments throughout. And with a trio of specially voiced American Vintage '59 Strat single-coil pickups, your favorite amplifier will love the Fender American Vintage '59 Pine Stratocaster as much as you do.
Fender spared no expense in creating the American Vintage Series, and you'll see it in the American Vintage '59 Pine Stratocaster. To make it as vintage accurate as possible, Fender restored original tooling dies, voiced new pickups, and even reformulated vintage finishes based on actual vintage examples. The result is a guitar that not only looks accurate but also feels like you're playing a well-worn-in classic that's been waiting to be rediscovered.
The character-packed pine body on this Strat doesn't just look sweet, it's got a history all its own. This pine was actually part of the Buckstaff Furniture Company’s facility in Oshkosh, WI over 100 years ago. It has since been re-claimed, cooked, and fashioned into the guitar you see here.
Fender wouldn't rest until the American Vintage '59 Pine Stratocaster sounded as vintage as it looked, so they got to work developing a special set of pickups specifically for the American Vintage Series. This Strat packs a trio of American Vintage '59 Strat single-coil pickups specially wound to period-correct specs and tone. You get the same tonal versatility that made the Strat the legend it is today.
