Fender Announces ‘American Original’ Series

In a nice refresh of the American Vintage series, Fender just announced it’s American Original series, a revamp and rebranding of the long running production (since 1982).

The biggest change is that the fretboard radius on these axes will be a flatter moden 9.5′ instead of the vintage 7.25′, which makes playing a bit easier. However the rest of the specs will be true vintage, down to pickups, the nitro laquer finish, color options, and neck profiles. The series no longer specifies the actual year it’s trying to replicate, rather the decade (which combines a few things together).

Kinda pricey, and although the colors are awesome they are down to two or three options per guitar. Would have loved more options.

Here’s the full lineup (not including the left hand models), more on www.fender.com:
