The Fender American Elite Stratocaster is made for contemporary guitarists who crave sonic versatility, modern performance, outstanding playability, and classic Strat style. The iconic double cutaway body of this Strat is made from ash and features deeper, more sculpted body contours for superb player comfort throughout your entire gig. Taking playability to all new heights, the American Elite Stratocaster sports a redesigned contoured Elite neck heel for enhanced upper fret access along with a compound "C" to "D"-shaped maple neck and a compound-radius fretboard that allows for unsurpassed playability and comfort whether you're playing chords down by the nut or soloing close to the body. The neck also comes equipped with an updated Elite truss rod adjustment wheel for fast, easy neck relief adjustments.
Ready to take on any performance, the electronics on the American Elite Stratocaster offers unparalleled performance, incredible sound, and amazing tonal versatility. Under the hood, the American Elite Stratocaster comes equipped with a trio of groundbreaking 4th Generation Noiseless single-coil pickups to serve up that timeless vintage Strat sound without that unwanted single-coil hum. From crystal clear cleans to thick overdriven tones, the 4th Generation Noiseless pickups are sure to deliver. The electronics also include a 5-way pickup selector and Fender's versatile S-1 switch on the Master Volume control for instant access to alternate wiring options for added tonal variety. The Push-Push Passing Lane switch engages the bridge pickup and bypasses the tone circuit for max volume and treble response, making this the perfect setting for solos and leads. The Soft Touch easy-grip control knobs allow for on-the-fly volume and tone adjustments.
The American Elite Stratocaster comes equipped with upgraded "all short post" deluxe locking tuning machines for superior tuning stability and an increased break angle at the nut. Comes complete with a redesigned ABS Elite Molded hardshell case with TSA locks for outstanding protection.
