The Fender Stratocaster is such an iconic guitar, built for functionality, playability and reliability it has been a firm favourite for over 60 years. The Fender American Elite Stratocaster is a modern powerhouse. Carrying all the traditional traits of a Strat, the American Elite brings a few new features to the table.
The Alder body is typically comfortable, as all Strat's are, and with a crisp Olympic Pearl finish it looks real slick. The Maple neck features a new Compound Modern C to D, 9.5”-14” profile, designed for speed and comfort; it's equally at home playing big chords or intricate lead work. 22 Medium Jumbo frets, a sweet Rosewood board and a 25.5" scale length make the Strat feel familiar and supremely comfortable.
The defining feature comes in the form of the new 4th Generation Noiseless single coil pickups, super dynamic and offering a multi-dimensional tone, these pups are exclusive to the American Elite series. Authentic vintage style Fender tone and flawless noise-free performance make this the ultimate Strat! To complete this powerhouse Strat, you get a lush ShawBucker at the bridge and an S-1 switch so you can switch between series and parallel wiring you get even greater tonal variations.
Complete with an Elite Hardcase, the Fender American Professional range is the standard for gigging musicians, with amazing quality and playability they are ready to hit the stage or studio at any time.
