In the world of music, Fender is one of those classic American brands that simply will never go out of style. And how could they, considering the storied rock n’ roll history behind several of their most iconic instruments. Well, now Fender wants to pay homage to the influential musical decades of the ’50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s with their American Original Series.

Offering rehashed versions of their most popular and played designs, this series includes 11 different models from these three decades available in handsome vintage colorways. The collection covers both electric guitars and basses – including the ‘50s Stratocaster and Telecaster, the ‘60s Stratocaster, Jaguar, and Jazz Master, and of course the ‘70s Jazz Bass. With each model, players will also find period-accurate pickups, era-specific neck profiles, and a Nitrocellulose lacquer finish in addition to era-accurate specs for each guitar or bass in the collection. Each one is handcrafted in Corona, California.

Purchase: $1,800+
