More about this 59 Strats design and history - 1959 was a year of transition for the venerable Strat. In May of ’59 Fender revised the way necks were made, switching from a one-piece maple neck to maple capped with a “slab” rosewood fingerboard. Fender also changed the pickguard, moving from 1-ply construction to the current three-ply material, and upped the number of screws from eight to 11, which also necessitated changing the body’s control route. These changes didn’t happen overnight; many guitars exist that show various combinations of these features, which makes them extremely rare and collectible. Reflecting these historic idiosyncrasies, the maple fingerboard model sports a 1-ply, 9-hole Parchment pickguard while the rosewood fingerboard model sports 3-ply, 10-hole Mint Green nitro pickguard.
