The Fernandes Decade Series was introduced in 1997. The design of the Decade guitars was inspired by classic Fender models, like the Jazz-master and Stratocaster but with some modern revisions. When introduced there were three models. The Decade-J1 with a classic alder body, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard with three single coils. The Decade-A1 was similar to the J1 but had a smaller sleeker body and one less tone control. The Decade A2 had the same body design as the A1 but had a fixed bridge and two humbucking pickups. In 1997 all Decades had a Fernandes Sustainer pickup option.

Fender Stratocaster with rosewood fingerboard electric guitar

Fender introduced the rosewood fingerboard option for the stratocaster in 1959. The rosewood board had the clay dot position markers. These earliest rosewood fingerboards were slab boards - flat across the bottom. In 1962 Fender changed to using veneer rosewood fingerboards - these were thinner and curved across the bottom and used less of the precious rosewood supplies. Around the same time this model was introduced in 1959 the Stratocaster pickguard was changed from single ply to the three-ply celluloid than often aged to a minty green color.
