OVERVIEW

An innovative Strat with interchangeable circuitry configurations.

Most guitarists tend to fall in love with a particular brand or model of electric guitar, yet still seek new sounds and tones. Swapping pickups is one way to go, or adding new pots and switches, but that requires skill and time. Fender now leads the way in a whole new direction by proposing a Strat featuring electronics that can be easily modded with interchangable œpersonality cards that give you instant access to a wide range of versatile pickup and circuitry configurations.

One card comes in the guitar and delivers standard Stratocaster pickup wiring; two extra personality cards are included and let you œrewire the guitar with specialized pickup and circuitry modifications quickly and easily. Simply pop the color-coded cards in and out of the easy-access compartment in the back, and you™ve just modded your Strat in record time. Further, the American Deluxe Strat Plus features fully solder-less electronics that literally make other great circuit mods a snap.

Other fine features include a maple neck with comfortable œmodern C profile and satin finish, compound-radius maple fingerboard (9.5-14) with 22 medium jumbo frets, and three single-coil N3 Noiseless Strat pickups with 5-way switching. The guitar also has a three-ply mint green pickguard and aged white control knobs, 2-point synchronized tremolo bridge with bent steel saddles, Micro-Tilt neck adjustment mechanism, staggered deluxe locking tuners and nickel-chrome hardware. Accessories include a convenient carrying case for the two extra personality cards, hardshell case, guitar strap, cable and polishing cloth.

    Comments about Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster Plus Electric Guitar:

    I've been a guitar player for over 40 years and this is my 3rd electric in the last 3 years. I am in love with this guitar which came perfectly set up; stays in tune and plays like a dream. The personality cards add a little flexibility for sound and I am still in the experimentation phase. However, conceptually this is a great idea but doubt it will be embraced. If it's not I am more than content with the 3 choices I have. I would not hesitate to recommend this beauty!!!

    My only complaint was that it was dropped by UPS at my front door (during the rain) and did not require a signature. Apparently they were trying to get all the black friday specials delivered. However, no harm because of the excellent packing by Musicians Friend. This is the 4th guitar I've ordered from them. Never have to leave the house for my musical supplies again.

    Fabulous sounds & Killer looks...

    Comments about Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster Plus Electric Guitar:

    Played great and looked beauty right out of the box. I love the N3 pickups and the sound cards add a lot of versatility to the guitar. The neck is perfect and I love the unique tint. I selected the blue metallic and no picture does that baby justice.
    This guitar is a winner and I look forward to being able to get new sound cards or switch pickups etc. My only complaint is that this should have come with the 60th anniversary of the stratocaster markings?!!! Love it though. Nice case and extra stuff too.
