OVERVIEW

A classic that's updated with hum-free electronics and a super comfortable neck.

The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster Ash has the distinctive grain pattern and spanking tone of an ash body, with all the cool specs of the American Deluxe Stratocaster. The compound radius fingerboard allows effortless string bending anywhere along the neck.

N3 Noiseless pickups provide improved Stratocaster tones for sparkling bell-like chime with no hum, and reconfigured S-1 switching offers even more distinctive tonal options. Other features include staggered locking tuners, two-point synchronized American Deluxe tremolo bridge with pop-in arm, and beveled neck heel.

Fender N3 Noiseless pickups
N3 Noiseless pickups deliver the best of yesterday and today, because they deliver landmark vintage Fender tone and response without the hum that can plague single-coil pickups. Using an improved stacked coil-coil design, N3 Noiseless pickups are specially tailored for each Stratocaster and Telecaster pickup position. The insulated metal core of each pickup position type differs in thickness and composition for enhanced tone, and Fender has fine-tuned the sized, shape, and wire gauge of the coils to balance the magnetic responsiveness essential to great tone. N3 pickups represent a welcome return to the warmth and clarity of alnico magnets. An Alnico 5 magnet is used in the bridge position, Alnico 2 in the middle position, and Alnico 3 for the neck position. Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

    Comments about Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster Ash Electric Guitar:

    This guitar doesn't fight you. Allow me to explain.

    When you pick up most guitars, they take a little work. Getting the tone you want requires firmly pressing down on the strings, bending can feel difficult to next to impossible in some places on the fretboard, and a lot of guitars have necks that just feel sticky. This guitar was perfectly set up right out of the box so that the first time that I played it, it melted away in my hands. All of a sudden I wasn't just holding any old guitar, but an instrument that desired to be played.

    The electronics are phenomenal. I'm a huge fan of the feel and action of the guitar. The neck is perfect, and I could never imagine needing to purchase another guitar. This could very well abe a for life-guitar.
