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.

Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Review http://guitar-reviewer.com/fender-american-deluxe-stratocaster-hss-review http://guitar-reviewer.com/fender-american-deluxe-stratocaster-hss-review#comments Wed, 15 Sep 2010 10:21:19 +0000 admin http://guitar-reviewer.com/?p=468 The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS is for guitarists demanding the same quality and craftsmanship that has been assiciated with Fender Stratocasters, but want or need the extra kick in the pants when they crank up the distortion.The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS is for guitarists demanding the same quality and craftsmanship that has been assiciated with Fender Stratocasters, but want or need the extra kick in the pants when they crank up the distortion. The compound-radius fingerboard makes bending the strings effortless anywhere along the neck. The two Fender N3 noiseless single-coil pickups give you greatly improved stratocaster tones and the DH-1 humbucking bridge pickup delivers all the gain you need to rock.

Some of the Deluxe features on this Stratocaster include a reconfigured S-1 switch, which gives you a wider array of tonal options, staggered locking tuners, an LSR rolloer nut, 2-point synchronized American Deluxe tremelo bridge and a beveled neck heel. The all-new “passing lane” switch instantly routes your signal from any pickup position to the bridge position with the tone circuit bypassed, blasting overtones and volume straight into the Strat-osphere. This strat is a must for strat lovers wanting more output!

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.

Fender Deluxe Players Stratocaster Electric Guitar Review http://guitar-reviewer.com/fender-deluxe-players-stratocaster-electric-guitar-review http://guitar-reviewer.com/fender-deluxe-players-stratocaster-electric-guitar-review#comments Sun, 29 Aug 2010 07:21:13 +0000 admin http://guitar-reviewer.com/?p=32 This gorgeous Fender Stratocaster give you a classic ‘Strat’ sound and feel in a nice looking package. The Deluxe strat has been upgraded with American-made Vintage Noisless pickups, medium-jumbo frets as well as a 12″ neck radius. As a result, the tone is amazing and it plays smooth.

Along with the standard toggle switch, a push button switch is available for toggling pickups, giving you 7 pickup combinations. The ash body, though very easy on the eyes, is a bit heavy for a strat.
