Product Description

Fender instruments have always been about great simplicity and convenient modularity -- no other guitars are easier to personalize with parts and hot-rodded features into truly individual declarations. The remarkable American Deluxe Strat Plus is the next step in the evolution of that great tradition, giving you three Stratocaster guitars in one with an innovative design featuring easily interchangeable "personality cards" that instantly give you a wealth of versatile pickup and circuitry configurations. One card comes in the guitar and delivers standard Stratocaster pickup wiring; two extra personality cards are included and let you "rewire" the guitar with specialized pickup and circuitry modifications quickly and easily.

Simply pop the color-coded cards in and out of the easy-access compartment in the back, and you've just modded your Strat in record time. Further, the American Deluxe Strat Plus features fully solder-less electronics that literally make other great circuit mods a snap. Other fine features include a maple neck with comfortable "modern C" profile and satin finish, compound-radius maple fingerboard (9.5"-14") with 22 medium jumbo frets, and three single-coil N3 Noiseless Strat pickups with five-way switching. The guitar also has a three-ply mint green pickguard and aged white control knobs, two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with bent steel saddles, Micro-Tilt(TM) neck adjustment mechanism, staggered deluxe locking tuners and nickel-chrome hardware. Accessories include a convenient carrying case for the two extra personality cards, hard-shell case, guitar strap, cable and polishing cloth.

zZounds Expert Review
The "Plus" version of the American Deluxe comes with everything you'd expect from a Strat and more. This model features personality cards, an innovation that Fender has created for instant modifications. For those like me that do not mess with soldering, this helps achieve numerous mods that help you get the tones you are looking for. One thing that stuck out was how well it was able to adjust the modifications. Along with the cards, they come with a couple of dip-switches to increase the amount of customization. This is great for when you are trying to create a setlist comprising different styles of playing/tone. I really liked the sound of the Cutter personality card, which instantly changed the tone knobs to a treble cut and a bass cut knob, allowing me to get a jazz-type of tone.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "PLUS STRATOCASTER"
Overall: I own about 35 guitars and basses. This is my first real (not copy or my shop build) FENDER STRATOCASTER and it is a sixtieth anniversary present to me as well. This guitar came out of the box with a fantastic set up, one of the best ever, it looks beautiful, it sounds like no other guitar I own and it is versatile. No batteries, just cards on the back panel. I hope they even come up with more card ideas, built in compression, a zing profiler and other neat stuff. Enough writing and back to playing this great guitar.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
