OVERVIEW

Fender's Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster tears the place down with extra-scorching Strat sound and style. Its three Texas Special single-coil pickups are wired for supercharged tonal versatility, with a special V6 rotary switch (disguised as the middle tone knob) that delivers six distinct onboard preamp tone settings from wiry single-coil to searing lead. The S-1 switch built into the volume knob bypasses the preamp completely for pure Strat tone.

Other features include a tinted maple neck with "modern C" profile and large '70s-style headstock, 9.5"-radius maple or rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, five-way pickup switch, four-ply aged white pearloid pickguard, three aged white control knobs (master volume/S-1, V6, master tone), and vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge.

Includes gig bag.

I own 4 strats of all kinds , I have to say this one sounds and plays better than all of them, including my American strat, playing thru Line 6 equipment I don't think you could get a better sound for recording, I play a gig the other night using my Marshall and with the pre amp on I got amazing sounds playing SRV and Clapton music. This guitar was set up perfect for me right out of the box I had to do nothing but plug it in. I love fender products and this one gets an A+ 5 * from me. If you had second thoughts about buying this fender then don't give it another , you won't be disappointed . Don't let Mexico fool you !!!

I needed a Strat for a few things so I thought I'd try this one. Ordered it from MF, it was out of stock, when I finally received it the bridge pickup is dead. Does Fender not check these guitars????? I had to send it back and of course I'm waiting for a replacement cause MF is out of stock again. I've been playing guitar for over 40 years and can safely say that the best guitars out there do not have Gibson or Fender on the headstock,,,,,,,maybe the older ones, but not the ones being produced today. I will give another complete review when I receive one that functions properly.

Comments about Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

Great Fender tone from the Texas special pickups and nice solid modern tuners. The custom colors are beautiful for this guitar. I have the Sonic Blue. Just like the Kurt Cobain model. The S-1 switching is very useable and provides those glorious Fender clean tones and nice blues to hard rock as well. Sadly, the rotary switch sounds aren't very pleasing to the ear so you're better off just hitting the S-1 to bypass it altogether. Fender should make the next years example of this guitar without the rotary switch to make it more affordable while getting rid of those useless and weak tones. The fit and finish of this guitar is really nice EXCEPT for the fret wire edges on the fretboard. They are so rough they are almost SHARP. After taping off the sides and filing them down, you will have a very nice guitar. It's a shame they couldn't something that simple at the factory. In fact, they should have put the money and labor into quality fret finish and abandon the rotary switch. This will give the buyer a BETTER and more useable guitar for the money without the cheap feel.

    Comments about Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    Have gigged & jammed over last 50 years but play mostly at home. This is a different Strat from the many I've owned - a different voice but classis look & feel. Plays, feels, & looks like a Strat costing twice as much. Very resonant, very solid. Classic Strat tones & more. I can't say I've ever got more guitar for my money. I knew from the get go it was a keeper.

        Good set up out of the box and great feel from the get go. The S-1 switch and pre-amp makes this strat very versatile. The fit and finish look great with no issues noted. I got the sonic blue with rosewood. This one is a keeper. Buy with confidence this is a beautiful and fun stratocaster.

          ALways had Fender products. Wanted to try this one out and the price was great. Very happy with it. The amount of sounds this can generate is unreal. From hard to soft it purrs. Musician's Friend has been my friend for many years and the gear heads never steer you wrong.

            plug it in, fire up the tubes,and skin it back. if anyone don't like this one, they need to buy a flute or something. if you like getting on some nasty screaming blues, then get this Mexican badboy.

            Clarification and correction

            Comments about Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

            I couldn't find an edit tool so:

            1. Texas Specials, not Heats, don't know where my head was.

            2. The switches, in combination with the preamp, do in fact give this guitar some true versatility. I already said that. What may not be clear to a novice purchaser is that this of value because you can change up your sound (within reason) without a) changing your amp sound, b) immediately getting into pedals, or c) immediately buying second, third, and fourth guitars. Once you have hardware options like those just listed, on board versatility means little. My point was and remains this: While many switch laden guitars make big promises, this is the only one I have that actually delivers some truly useable sound diversity. Again, not as grand as advertised but enough to be commended.

            Not a Fender Fan but Nice Guitar

            Comments about Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

            I ordered the sunburst and it was right at 2 months before this thing shipped, and it only shipped then (I believe) because I complained Fender had them in stock and available on their website while MF still had mine on backorder. That, and the cheap overall finish of my new Blues Jr. III, explain the headline.

            That said, this, is a nicely crafted, well finished, competently set up guitar, as good as any and better than many in the price range. If this is an accurate representation of everything coming out of the Mexico factory, then MIM is nothing to look down on. The accompanying bag is also decently made and a true bonus because, as just stated, this guitar represents good value on its own.

            Be advised, this a 22 fret, narrow neck Strat. I wanted just that, you may not. I took the Texas Heats because they are the only 3-single pups option. As feared, they push the guitar away from the classic strat sound towards just another guitar sound, down the road I may try Noiseless Vintage or even just the cheapie singles or something boutique, who knows. At least I have the correct platform.

            I am not a big fan of guitar dials and switches, my experience being that they fail in their claims to make one guitar several different guitars. I find coil splitters (which, in fact, do not 'split' but simply dial back the pickup's power)especially useless. That said, the combination of switches and dials on this guitar give you a range of more realistic tonal options (that's important as 'artificial' sounds are worthless) which, while less grand than advertised, is a plus if this guitar is on your short list.

            Self examine your needs and desires, do your research. If this ends up on your shortlist and you're OK with the Texas Heats, buy it.

            Neck: Amazing
            Body: Comfortable
            Color: Vintage white is more yellow than vintage white
            V6 rotary switch: OK but not great/sounds better off
            S-1 switch: Thank You
            Tremolo bridge: Perfect / Effortless
            Pickups: Great, clean, smooth, chimes, depth

            I love this guitar. Sounds better than some of the more expensive USA strats. The neck is lushes and well made. The vintage white is more yellow than I had hoped but not a big deal. The V6 rotary switch needs to either be improved or removed in my opinion. Something about the V6 feels cheap. Over all I say buy this guitar.

              Have owned Fenders since the Surf music days. I was a little leary about anything that had a battery involved such as this new tone dial BUT this is too much fun not to have one in your collection. The workmanship is great, set up out of the box was right on!

              If I didn't know where it was made I would swear it was just like the good old days. Just wish I could still play like the old days.
              Getting old sucks!
              Naturally, MF and my sales associate Renee X 3069 was great.

              Comments about Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

              I bought the CAR model. Out of the box it needed a good setup. A couple of the slots in the nut were cut too deep and we had the fill them. And I also decked the trem. Now it plays well.

              The electronics are interesting. I think Fender wanted a varitone like Gibson. To me that's what the V6 switch is all about. I keep wanting to put a chicken head knob on that pot/switch.

              Also after a couple of weeks playing I seem to have settled on where the V6 switch stays. And switch the S1.

              And it takes some getting used to since the tone knob isn't.
