Fender launched the American Original Series back in 2018 with 11 electric guitars and basses offered in 13 colors.

Now, the company has introduced instruments in six new finishes to the line: an Ice Blue Metallic '60s Jazzmaster; an Inca Silver '50s Strat; a Daphne Blue '60s Jaguar; a Burgundy Mist Metallic '60s Tele; an Aztec Gold '50s Precision Bass; and a Vintage White '70s Jazz Bass.

Like all American Original models, the new guitars and basses are inspired by some of Fender's most-successful '50s, '60s and '70s designs and include vintage-style hardware, vintage-tall frets, body radii and neck shapes, lacquer finishes, original-spec pickups and vintage-style cases.
