The solid alder body, maple neck, 9.5″-radius maple fretboard, 22 medium jumbo frets, gloss urethane finish, and nickel/chrome hardware make this guitar look just as good as it sounds. Whether you are looking to bring the house down at your next gig, or in your pajamas at home, this guitar will kick more than enough tail at a fraction of the price you would expect.
Some of the other features onthe American Special Stratocaster include a vintage-style synchronized tremolo, chrome hardware, and a large ’70s-style headstock and Fender decal. This Strat may not have all of the bells and whistles that its more expensive siblings have, but you don’t need all of those when you sound this good.

This Strat features an alder body, black or black over three-color sunburst finishes, black pickguard, one-piece straight-grain maple neck, custom pickups and Gilmour’s now-famous electronics and shortened vintage tremolo arm. This strat does come with a hefty price tag, but is worth it for anyone wanting to really capture that Pink Floyd sound.
