Greetings from the Tweed Hut Music Store, Vacaville, Ca. USA! Established 2002, We do a great job and will not let you down!


The Fender® American Vintage II series presents a remarkably accurate take on the revolutionary designs that altered the course of musical history. Built with period-accurate bodies, necks and hardware, premium finishes and meticulously voiced, year-specific pickups, each instrument captures the essence of authentic Fender craftsmanship and tone.

With its alluring curves, sparkling sounds and groundbreaking tremolo bridge, Fender's new 1954 Stratocaster® was a phenomenon, unlike anything the world had ever seen. By 1957, the Stratocaster had crystallized into a mid-century masterpiece.

Featuring a trio of Pure Vintage '57 Stratocaster pickups, sweeping body contours and a supremely comfortable "V"-shape neck with a 7.25" radius maple fingerboard, the American Vintage II 1957 Stratocaster reproduces the quintessential tone and feel of the original. Other appointments include a vintage-accurate synchronized tremolo with cold rolled steel block and bent steel saddles, single-line "Fender Deluxe" tuners and a single-ply pickguard.

Offered in three stunning nitrocellulose lacquer finishes - 2-Color Sunburst and Sea Foam Green over alder and Vintage Blonde over ash - the American Vintage II 1957 Stratocaster celebrates a true icon of Fender instrument design.

The instruments in the American Vintage II series are direct descendants of the original Fenders: designed for players with a fine appreciation for vintage Fender tone and feel and built with unmatched quality, down to the last screw. These are Fender electrics in their purest form: Fender American Vintage II, the stuff of legends.

Coveted ’57 Stratocaster Charm

Before the heyday of early-’60s surf rock, Fender and several guitarists were on a quest to uncover the perfect Strat sound. Everything from the newly manufactured Alnico III single-coil pickup down to the nitro gloss finish was manipulated with the goal of distilling Stratocaster tone like no other. With the American Vintage II Strat, Fender has now brought back the quintessential 1957 model with unparalleled authenticity. Built with alder and maple tonewoods and featuring an exclusive trio of single-coil Strat pickups, the ’57 Strat is a perfect emulation of a beloved axe classic. Considering it retains the same “V” neck profile and familiar fretboard access, holding an American Vintage II guitar feels akin to wielding an instrument rife with legendary 20th-century tone.

The shape, feel, and build of a guitar are the first things you notice before you’re about to play. With that idea in mind, Fender took care in making sure that the American Vintage II ’57 Strat was as authentically manufactured as its predecessor. The same classic “V”-shape neck profile completes the ’57 Strat’s true maneuverability, allowing you to glide between notes. An accurately designed alder and maple construction feels like holding an authentic musical artifact, while amounting to a sturdy build. Topped off with a delicate nitro gloss finish, this Strat is the closest thing to grabbing a real-deal axe off the line in 1957.

Definitive single-coil trio

What’s the most iconic detail of a ’57 Strat? Its mid-end punch and bright treble tone, of course! Lined with three Pure Vintage ’57 single-coil Strat pickups, you’ll revel in this guitar's mid-century audial palette, including singing high notes, textured rhythms, and everything in between. The classic Stratocaster control panel includes a 5-way pickup switch and twin tone knobs, letting you maximize your output to your desired taste. Tied together with a single volume knob and easy access to a vintage synchronized tremolo, you’ll be able to conjure up any tone that crosses your creative wit.
