Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this new Fender American Elite Stratocaster!

Fender has done it yet again! With the introduction of the American Elite line, they have upgraded the American Deluxe instruments and continued evolving and pioneering as they always have. Along with all of the classic and traditional Strat tones we all know and love, you can access dial in the S-1 switch for a wealth of versatility and varying sounds including out-of-phase tones. Playability up and down the neck is super easy. The neck profile feels comfortable in your fretting hand and the contoured heel allows for easy access to every fret being offered to you. The compound radius fretboard is just awesome! While you're down by the nut, the neck is perfectly comfortable for playing chords. As you fly up the neck, the radius flattens out to allow for lead lines and bends that will only be limited by your strings.

Fender's fourth generation Noiseless single-coils are, indeed, an improvement over the pickups in the American Deluxe line. These are the truest sounding noiseless single-coils to date. You still get all of that top-end spank of a single coil but without any of the obnoxious 60-cycle hum that often can make us reluctant to solo the neck or bridge pickup. Worry no more! Authentic single-coil tone without any of the unwanted noise is not just a figment of your imagination and you don't have to spend $3,000+ on a guitar to get it!

Item Details

Externally the American Elite Stratocaster has Fender’s timeless style, but under the hood it’s an entirely new breed of guitar designed for 21st-century players who constantly push the envelope. With over a dozen new innovations, each guitar is a true performer with eye-catching style, exceptional feel and versatile sound from the very first moment you plug it in and play. Designed for 21st-century players, the American Elite Series sports a new compound neck profile designed for comfort and the ultimate playability. A modern "C"-shape at the nut, the rear of the neck morphs along the length of the neck to a modern "D"-shaped profile at the updated neck heel that blends into the asymmetrical neck volute, providing plenty of ergonomic support and comfortably enhanced playing feel. With the all-new 4th generation Noiseless pickups, exclusive to the American Elite Series, we’ve achieved the sonic equivalent of cold fusion—authentic vintage-style Fender sound combined with noise-free performance. A quantum leap in pickup technology, these bleeding-edge pickups are the pinnacle of our pickup designs, offering crisp, clear cleans as well as gigantic overdriven tones that are bursting with pure rock power. The new double action truss rod adjustment wheel makes it a snap to adjust the instrument's neck relief without any special tools. The S-1 switch activates alternate wiring options for even more tonal variations. Discreetly placed atop the volume control, it engages or disengages at the tap of a finger for on-the-fly adjustments.

FEATURES
  • Double cutaway electric guitar
  • Three all-new fourth generation Noiseless single-coil Stratocaster pickups
  • S-1™ switching for even more tonal versatility
  • Compound profile neck; redesigned contoured neck heel
  • 9.5”-14” compound radius fingerboard
  • Locking short-post tuning machines; speedy soft-touch control knobs
  • Includes redesigned ABS Elite Molded Case with TSA locks
