OVERVIEW

An ash body with compound radius neck and noiseless pickups.

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:

    I've been playing the guitar for 35 years or longer and ever since I heard the sound of a Stratocaster I fell in love with them and I have loved them since .. I recently purchased the American Standard Deluxe fender Strat . I got the Aged Cherry Burst .. I absolutely LOVE this guitar !!! It's my favorite guitar and I play it ever chance that i get and when I'm not playing it I'm either just sitting back and starring at it or polishing it . I can't let it out of my sight !! It's so beautiful and feels great and plays sweet !!! I guess you could say that it was set up perfect when I took it right out of the case but I did lower my strings just a little and this guitar chords easier then any guitar that I have ever played !!! On a scale of 1-10 . I would give this thing a 10 plus !!! This is the best playing and most perfect guitar that I have ever owned !!!!! I can't put into words just how much that I love this guitar !!

      Comments about Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster Ash Electric Guitar:

      When you're ready to step up to a real Stratocaster, this is one to really consider. I'm like the first reviewer- I've been playing for about 27 years, pro on and off, and I echo everything he says AND I got the cherry burst as well. It is extremely versatile in tone, so paired with a good amp setup, you can sound like anyone...or not. It feels great to hold and play and sounds great. I will be lowering the action a little bit as well, plus I did raise the pickups a little to match the output of my other guitars. Other than that, it was worth every penny. A great compliment to my collection.
