What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
S-1 switching system On-board series/parallel wiring voices
Contoured heel Rounded heel for easy access to high frets
2-point tremolo system 2 pivot points enhance stability & sonic coupling
Noiseless N3 pickups Stacked design, vintage tone and dynamics
The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster is a top-of-the-line axe, packed with a number of distinctly more modern features than other Fender Strats. The specially-designed N3 pickups offer a uniquely quiet and hum-free single-coil design and a bright, bell-like tone. The American Deluxe Stratocaster also sports a recently redesigned S-1 switch, giving you a greater range of tonal options to play with. And more fine details in the hardware and design ultimately make the American Deluxe a Stratocaster unto itself.

Beautiful and Innovative Neck Design

The neck on this Fender American Deluxe module is topped with a compound-radius fretboard that evolves in its radius size lengthwise from 9.5 to 14 inches. The compound-radius fretboard was developed to accommodate the Stratocaster's occasional inability to sustain bent notes in the higher part of the neck. The change in radial gradient means that strings will bend far more smoothly in this part of the neck, extending the sustain in your solo and lead playing. Its diminutive size also feels quick and light in your hands all the way up to the 22nd fret. And here, you'll notice that the American Deluxe Strat's heel is uniquely contoured to be more playable.

Proprietary N3 Noiseless Pickups

The American Deluxe's custom-designed N3 Noiseless pickups were innovated to eliminate the characteristic hum tone found on most single coil pickups. In addition to the versatile 5-way switch blade pickup selector in its usual spot, you've got the amazing added functionality of the S-1 switch.

Fender's Ingenious S-1 Pickup Switch

The S-1 switch is a very cool feature: it gives you five additional switch positions that route the signal through the pickups in unique ways. In Positions 1-3, you can manipulate the way the guitar's pickups are wired in series. In Position 4, the bridge and neck pickups go out of phase through a special tone capacitor. In Position 5, the bridge and middle pickups are wired in series and out of phase, in parallel with the neck pickup. Needless to say, the American Deluxe Stratocaster puts tonal possibilities in your hands that set it totally apart from other Fenders. It is a guitar that invites all kinds of fun and experimentation.

Designed to be Useful for Real Guitarists

The American Deluxe goes the whole nine yards in its attention to truly useful features, including staggered locking tuners and a two-point synchronized American Deluxe tremolo bridge with pop-in arm. The two-point sync and the locking tuners definitely make it one of the tightest Fenders out there, in terms of stable intonation.

Product Description

Tone... Tradition... Innovation. Fender's American Deluxe Stratocaster has all the modern features today's guitarists require. A compound radius fretboard allows effortless string bending anywhere along the neck, and N3 Noiseless pickups provide improved Stratocaster tones for sparkling bell-like chime with no hum. Reconfigured S-1 switching offers other distinctive tonal options; other features include staggered locking tuners, two-point synchronized American Deluxe tremolo bridge with pop-in arm, and beveled neck heel. This version of the Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster features a Rosewood fretboard for slightly warmer tone.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Fender American Deluxe Strat - still the best and it's American made"
Sound: I was very pleased with my new American Deluxe Strat. The low action makes it a breeze to play, the N3 noiseless PUs are just that (noiseless) and S1 switching adds a bunch of new sounds to the Strat's palette Feature: The American Deluxe Strat's components are top shelf. The locking/staggered tuners will definitely help with tuning etc. In fact, I blocked my old American Standard's tremolo but my new Strat seems to be much more stable and I can bend strings without the tremolo changing the pitch of the other strings. Ease of Use: see Sound above Quality: see Features above Value: Price seems to be in line with other price increases over the years. My last American Std Strat cost about $500 20 years ago Manufacturer Support: I have not required any service but I'm going to assume that it would be prompt etc based on the promptness of the delivery The Wow Factor: I love the wood grain visible with the Amber finish Overall: Hopefully another 20 years....I'll really be old by that time but if I'm still around I hope I'll still be jammin

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Fender Deluxe Am Strat.... it is what it is, a deluxe guitar."
Sound: The new N3 Noisless pickups are just that, absolutely noiseless. Some of the S1 Switching options are pretty good, thus enhancing the sound of the Strat. I am a little disappointed in the lack of Quack from positions 2 and 4 though. Feature: Awesome trem arm.... doesn't screw in, it just snaps/pushes in. Very nice action. The best feature though is the Compound Radius neck combined with the tapered neck joint allowing easier reach to the higher notes. Ease of Use: It is a strat. Easy to use, fabulous guitar. Quality: Fender's quality control reputation made it easy for me to order via mail-order. That plus the return policy made it an excellent deal. Manufacturer Support: Fender has a new warranty registration process. Keep your bill of sale. The Wow Factor: I bought it because of it's overall features and price. Overall: Easy deal. no regrets.
