OVERVIEW

Masterful tone and first-rate features.

The Fender Select Stratocaster is the sonic embodiment of tone-machine elegance, featuring a stunning Dark Cherry Burst gloss-lacquer finish on a sleek flame maple-top body. Its modern œC shaped flame maple neck has a comfortable contoured heel, Bi-Flex truss rod system for rock-solid stability, a satin lacquer back finish and rear-headstock œFender Select medallion. The smooth-playing compound radius flame maple fretboard (9.5-14) has 22 medium jumbo frets, stylish black pearloid position inlays and gloss lacquer finish. Pure and singing signature sound comes from new Fender Select Stratocaster single-coil neck, middle and bridge pickups with five-way switching and a no-load tone control that delivers the natural uncolored sound of the bridge pickup when dimed.

Other premium features include a three-ply pickguard (parchment-black-parchment), two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with vintage-style bent steel saddles, deluxe staggered cast/sealed locking tuners and nickel-chrome hardware. Custom G&G Fender Select case, strap, cable and polishing cloth included.

Comments about Fender Select Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Maple Fingerboard:

Best strat I have ever owned. Fantastic sustaine, looks and feels great, no load tone pot in bridge pickup, locking tuners, feels and plays like a custom shop guitar. The flame maple top and maple neck looks fantastic on this guitar.

      Comments about Fender Select Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Maple Fingerboard:

      I started playing on an Ibanez JS-1000 and then moved on to several Parker Flys and a NiteFly, and then to a PRS McCarty and Custom 22. Finally I've found the tone I'm looking for in this guitar. The others are nice, especially the McCarty (57/08 pups) for tone and the Parker for playability, but the don't pack the range this one does. I've played some Deluxes and standards and this is in a different league to my ears- Liked it so much I'll probably get the HSS also.
