Flash-Coat Lacquer Finish
Flash-Coat Lacquer Finish

The term flash-coat lacquer refers specifically to the quickly applied thin and final "flash" of topcoat lacquer applied to most American Vintage instruments. The composition and method of application for this finish layer lets an instrument "breathe" with a more natural resonance, and imparts a more authentically vintage appearance.

Newly Voiced American Vintage Pickups
Newly Voiced American Vintage Pickups

American Vintage instruments feature specially voiced pickups meticulously researched and crafted to reproduce the authentic design, voice and performance of specific instruments from individual model years in the 1950, ’60s and ’70s. Their superior sound and style is one of the defining hallmarks of the American Vintage series.

Period Correct Neck Shape
Period Correct Neck Shape

This instrument’s "C" neck profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) is sculpted to the most accurate period-correct spec possible, imparting an authentic vintage playing feel straight from the individual model year. The most prevalent neck profile shape, it’s remarkably comfortable and is ideal for all playing styles.

Bone Nut
Bone Nut

A string nut fashioned from bone contributes to superior tone and performance, not to mention being an authentic original-era Fender design element. Many players consider bone string nuts more "organic" sounding, with tonal quality unmatched by string nuts made using synthetic materials.

"Round-Lam" Rosewood Fingerboard
"Round-Lam" Rosewood Fingerboard

Fender introduced "round-lam" (short for round-laminated) rosewood fingerboards in the early 1960s as a new method of attaching smooth-playing and attractive rosewood fingerboards—in a thin, rounded veneer-like form—to sturdy maple necks. In look, sound and feel, it’s a classic Fender design element still widely used today on many contemporary and vintage-style instruments.

Period-Correct Cases and Ephemera
Period-Correct Cases and Ephemera

American Vintage instruments are complemented by cases that are every bit as vintage-authentic as the guitars and basses they so stylishly contain, accompanied by a fascinating wealth of in-case reproduction extras and accessories, such as straps, cables, polishing cloths, wiring kits, bridge covers, owner’s manuals and more.
