A limited-run combination of wood grain, aluminium and classic appointments.

The American Stratocaster Faded Ash introduces a visually striking new Strat style. It features a never-before-seen brown anodized aluminum pickguard, which accentuates the attractive wood grain visible through the ash body’s elegantly faded satin lacquer finish. Together, these create a complete aesthetic entirely new in nearly six decades of Stratocaster design.

Other premium features include a tinted maple neck with satin urethane back finish, 9.5”-radius maple (Surf Green model) or rosewood (Olympic White model) fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, three Texas Special Single-Coil Strat® pickups with five-way switching, aged white control knobs (master volume and “no load” tone control), and two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with vintage-style bent steel saddles and high-mass block. Includes case.

      Comments about Fender FSR American Stratocaster Rustic Ash Electric Guitar:

      Wow. I want thank Fender for this one. When I got the notice these Ash Bodies were shipping I took a close look. The Surf green looked good but reminded me of a newly installed deck (maybe appeals to a Mint Chocolate Chip craving). Plus I already have 2 Strats with maple necks. I chose the Olympic White w/rosewood board. It looked very southern in the pics and the Texas Pups are well known to me, I retrofitted my Tele with them and it cooks without fire!
      This Guitar is a true beauty. It comes with a standard case BTW. They don't tout that in the description.
      Out of the box.
      The Ash white washed look is more natural than white Olympic. The Anodized brown pick guard comes really close to the hue of the rosewood neck, giving this ax is visually balanced and natural Look. It looks like Robbie Robertson and sounds like Mark Knopfler ( we got to move these refrigerators)!

      Now about feel …
      I have Never, I repeat never wanted to run my hands over a guitar body as much as this gitbox satisfies my sole! It is sublime. I was thinking I would buff out the satin finish with a wheel before I received it. Wrong answer! It's like holding an old ash Louisville slugger! This is an education in wood. Mine was a perfect joint of the 2 pieces of ash. Very symmetrical and round internal grain features moving out to linier lines toward the edges. The only thing I would improve on the construction of this guitar would be a rolled fret board edge (but that may be a personal preference).
      So here's a completely selective/objective subject…it's all about your ear, your gear, your amp and your style, and what you expect. I'm going to make this simple. Without any amplification (not plugged in at all), this guitar sustained notes, once in concert pitch, FOREVER! I don't know if it's because of the ash body, the aluminum pick guard or the combination of both. I didn't believe I was hearing the length of ring right so I tried every string with my ear to the body … this is a test I l always do. I find that an instrument that sounds good naked is always superior when amplified. Yes it delivers thanks to the TX pups too!
      Great build Fender Thanks
