The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster has been one of the most sought after models for many years, setting the standard for high-end guitars all over the world. The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster 2010 model bears all the features of the renowned classic, containing all the signature ingredients that made a legend, with a few added modern appointments to cater to the needs of today's musicians.
The body of the Fender American Deluxe 2010 Stratocaster is constructed from alder, a tonewood that Fender has favoured since the mid 1950s. Noted for its deft balance of tones between warmth and brightness, with exquisite clarity; especially in the upper mids. The body is coated with a mouth-watering Olympic Pearl finish, and uses a 4-ply tortoiseshell pickguard for protection to the finish, as well as offering a darker side to this exquisite guitar.
The Fender American Deluxe Strat is equipped with a 2-point deluxe synchronized tremolo bridge, with a pop-in tremolo arm handle. The 2-point synchronized bridge provides you with greater tuning stability and improved sustain. And because the bridge is a tremolo bridge, you can use the tremolo arm to add subtle vibrato to your playing.
Crafted to the popular Modern "C" neck profile, and constructed of maple, the neck of the 2010 Fender American Deluxe is a treat to play. The solid maple construction, smooth feel, and contoured neck profile offers effortless and comfortable playability, while the rosewood fingerboard offers superb accuracy and easy transitions. The fingerboard uses 22 medium jumbo frets with black dot inlays.
Fender has used newly designed N3 Noiseless Pickups within the 2010 American Deluxe Stratocaster. The three N3 single-coil Strat pickups are placed in the bridge, middle, and neck position, and provide improved, growling, punchy Stratocaster tones with no hum/feedback.
The pickups can be switched using the 5-position blade switch, and controlled with a master volume control knob - which is also fitted with an S-1 switch to provide alternate pickup wiring configurations -, a neck pickup tone control knob, and a middle/bridge pickup tone knob. The simplicity of the control layout belies the complexity in the range of tones available. Whatever style of music you play, the American Deluxe Strat boasts a tonal versatility that other models can only dream about.
The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster 2010 electric guitar with maple fingerboard and Olympic Pearl finish is truly awesome; it plays like a dream, offers a universe of tonal delights to explore, and looks stunning. Fender have included a moulded SKB hard case to protect your new pride and joy, as well as a cable, strap and straplocks to get you started in style.
