The impressive gain can be attributed to the vintage-style Fender Blacktop Alnico humbucking pickups. Other features on this Strat include skirted black amp knobs and a synchronized tremolo bridge.

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.

Fender American Special Stratocaster Electric Guitar Review http://guitar-reviewer.com/fender-american-special-stratocaster-electric-guitar-review http://guitar-reviewer.com/fender-american-special-stratocaster-electric-guitar-review#comments Sat, 18 Sep 2010 07:27:04 +0000 admin http://guitar-reviewer.com/?p=496 The American Special Stratocaster is one Strat that could get away with costing twice as much as it does. Featuring a gloss urethane-finished alder body, a 9.5? radius maple neck with a modern C profile and maple fretboard, this guitar gives you that pure “Strat sound”. The 3 Texas Special single-coil pickups will give you gain and tones like crazy and the Greasebucket tone circuit rolls of the highs nicely without adding bass.

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 guitar really captures that revolutionary sound.

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.
