Description

Details

The Fender American Special Stratocaster electric guitar delivers genuine U.S.-made Fender build quality at a price that more guitarists can take advantage of.

Body

The American special features the same classic Strat curves that have made it one of the most popular models in the history of the guitar. The ergonomically designed body profile allows the Strat to rest snugly against the body during performances, whilst the thin shape makes it very comfortable to wield. As you'd expect, the body has been crafted using alder, a tonewood that has been favoured by Fender since the 1950s due to its exquisite timbre and balanced tonal output. The body has been treated to a vintage-style two-colour sunburst finish, giving it a delightfully classic aesthetic.

Neck

Fitted to the body is a superb single-piece maple neck, which has been shaped to the ever so comfortable modern "C" shape neck profile. Running your hand along this neck is an absolute joy. Married to the neck is a maple fingerboard, complete with 22 frets that are easily navigated thanks to the dot position inlays. Thanks to the classic double-cutaway Strat body profile, each and every fret is within easy reach. The maple/maple neck and fingerboard combination offers an articulate reply to the highly resonant body, so that whether you're playing at low or high volume levels, each and every note rings out with the utmost clarity.

Electronics

The American Special Strat is fitted with a traditional pickup arrangement that includes three single-coils: one in the neck, one in the middle, and one in the bridge. The pickups are Texas Special Strat single-coils, which deliver a solid midrange punch, crystal-clear highs, and a tight bass response. Access to each pickup comes in the form of the 5-way pickup selector switch, and between these three you have access to an entire universe of tonal options. The neck and bridge pickups each have individual tone pots with Greasebucket Tone Circuitry, which means that when you roll back the dial you can level off the high frequencies without reinforcing or adding low-end tone. This results in a much tighter output.

Hardware

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.

Posted on 24/05/2015 by Paul Nutton Bought this guitar six weeks ago and I haven't been able to put it down since! It's a beautiful instrument,the pickups are fabulous.the neck profile is a comfy c shape affair that's satin finished with jumbo frets finished to high standard oh and that lovely wide headstock! Build quality is as you'd expect from Fender (top notch), overall a very good instrument, highly recommend .
Unbelievably good
