OVERVIEW

The world's greatest electric guitar gets added functionality.

The Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Plus Top guitar with IOS Connectivity lets you expand the sonic possibilities of the world's greatest electric guitar by plugging it straight into iOS devices such as your iPhone, iPad, iPod or computer-with no need for any external devices-for easy recording, editing, monitoring and more. Along with all its other great features, you get superior signal-to-noise ratio and remarkable dynamic range for an exciting and truly state-of-the-art playing experience.

The guitar's built-in USB audio interface is what does the trick. You can always play it as a great-sounding standard HSS Stratocaster, but the USB output and 1/8" stereo headphone output on the side of the lower bout deliver a whole other world of sonic versatility and creativity. Use the included USB mini-B to Lightning cable to connect the guitar directly to your iPhone, iPad or iPod, or use the included USB mini-B to USB Type A cable to connect directly to your Mac or PC (a custom USB mini-B to MFi 30-pin cable for connection to older iPhone, iPad and iPod models is sold separately).

And to top it all off, it's a gorgeous guitar with a beautiful flame maple top in a choice of gloss finishes. Other features include a maple neck with "modern C" profile and gloss finish, maple or rosewood fingerboard with 9.5" radius and 21 medium-jumbo frets, single-coil neck and middle pickups, humbucking bridge pickup, five-way switching and three white plastic control knobs (master volume, master tone, headphone volume), three-ply parchment pickguard and two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with six saddles.

    Comments about Fender Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Plus Top Electric Guitar with iOS Connectivity:

    As with all Fender Strats, in my opinion you have the good, the bad and the ugly.
    In my experience, a bolt on neck is not quite as good as a set neck. A 9.5" radius is not quite as good as a compound radius or an 11" radius. A single coil is not quite as good as a humbucker. Alder is not as good as mahogany. I could go on and on. I have always felt Fender guitars weren't quite as good as what you are paying for and Gibson guitars are usually better than what you are paying for.
    Lately that has changed. Gibson's prices prices have risen dramatically while quality has gone way down. Fender prices have remained pretty consistent as has the quality of their guitars. In my opinion, this guitar raises the quality while keeping price down as well as introducing more modern electronics including iOS compatibility. Recording with this guitar is simply muc easier then it's ever been.
    Fit and finish on this guitar are first rate. It is simply gorgeous. This guitar is also playable and works well live and in the studio. My minor complaints are that the neck is bolted on (less sustain), has a small radius which leads to strings choking out on bends, and the hardware and electronics are horrendously outdated. This guitar has an updated 2 point bridge, a dramatic improvement, and the ability to plug right in to a computer. I have owned a few strats over the years, but none that could stand up to my gibsons, Les Paul and SG. This guitar holds its own and earned a spot in my arsenal.
    I like to play it and to look at it. That's pretty much all I ask from a guitar. Good job Fender Mexico and thank you!!!!

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Plus Top Electric Guitar with iOS Connectivity:

      Fender really nailed it with this plus top strat. Its amazing what you can get for the price. The flamed maple on top of alder is beautiful. Aside from looks the pickups are what you can expect from any other standard hss strat. You can expect a comfortable amount of growl from the bridge, sweet but edgy clarity from the middle pickup, creamy jazz tones from the neck pickup and wonderful twang from the out of phase positions. This is all accompanied beautifully with the iOS connectivity. At first it was a little strange for me to plug my guitar into my laptop/iPad via usb and monitor sound though the guitar also. Though after a few nights of doing it I couldn't imagine any better way for a beginner or experienced guitarist to practice silently. With programs such as ampitube and bias the beginner guitarist can start recording their ideas without needing a ton of pricy gear. Also to be said about the built in interface, I couldn't find a single difference in the guitars dry tones between the 1/4 input and usb input.

          Comments about Fender Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Plus Top Electric Guitar with iOS Connectivity:

          I've an AVRI 62 Strat, that is a great instrument, but this Mexi iOS just gets all the work, its so versatile and honestly I prefer its playability. Half the price, but twice the pleasure. Quality of parts, finish and a silky maple neck that helps it ring
