Fender American Vintage II 1961 Stratocaster Rosewood Fingerboard, Fiesta Red (748)
The popularity of Fender musical instruments grew throughout the ‘50s, flourishing into an assortment of instrument models, and by 1961 the Stratocaster had taken on a more refined aesthetic. A big evolutionary change in early ’60s first appeared in late 1959, when Fender guitars transitioned from maple fingerboards to rosewood—mostly because of the visible wear that a maple fingerboard showed. But it made an appreciable difference in the overall tonality of the guitar, giving it a slightly warmer voice. To mirror this transitional period, American Vintage II 1961 Stratocaster sports a 7.25” radius slab rosewood fingerboard, and 3-ply pickguard accenting the Strat’s signature curves.
