The Fender American Special Stratocaster electric guitar in candy apple red, combines coveted U.S.-made Fender build quality with few choice appointments that makes this a truly exceptional model.


The American Special Stratocaster has received the love and attention you'd expect to see in a high-end model, bearing the classic Strat curves that have made this one of the most popular guitar designs for decades. The elegantly shaped contours ensure that the body sits snugly during performances to create a natural and comfortable feel. The body has been crafted using alder, a tonewood that has been favoured by Fender since the 1950s thanks to its effortless handling of tones from low to high. The delightful candy apple red finish has been treated to a protective layer of gloss urethane, preserving the paint job for as long as possible.


Fitted to the body is a slender single-piece maple neck, which has been shaped to the ever so comfortable modern "C" shape neck profile. Married to the neck is a maple fingerboard, complete with 22 jumbo frets that are adorned with dot position inlays to aid in your navigation. Thanks to the classic double-cutaway Strat body profile, each and every fret easily accessible. The maple/maple neck and fingerboard combination guarantees that each and every note is infused with the utmost articulation before makes it way to the alder.


The American Special Strat has been equipped with a trio of Texas Special Strat single-coil pickups, which have been designed to produce a well-rounded sonic delivery that includes a solid midrange punch, crystal-clear highs, and a tight bass response. A 5-way pickup selector switch enables ready access to each pickup, or combinations of each. Everything from fat, swelling mids to rumbling lows and searing highs is available, and between the three pickups you have access to an entire universe of tonal options to explore. The neck and bridge pickups each have individual tone pots with Greasebucket Tone Circuitry - this means that when you roll back the dial, you can level off the high frequencies without reinforcing or adding low-end tone, resulting in a much tighter sounding output.


The body carries the 6-saddle vintage-style tremolo bridge, which creates a seamless connection between the strings and body for maximum playing stability, offers greater intonation, and allows you to add subtle vibrato whenever you wish. The large '70s-style headstock carries Fender standard cast/sealed tuning machines that keep each string held steadfast throughout the most energetic of performances. The body top is protected around the pickups and control pots by a stylish 3-ply parchment pickguard.

The Fender American Special Stratocaster electric guitar offers astonishingly good value for money. Take care of this beauty and you'll have a partner for life. Included with this model is a deluxe gig bag, as well as a polishing cloth to help keep it in pristine condition.
