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
Staggered-height tuning machines More string tension across nut, enhances sustain
Noiseless N3 pickups Stacked design, vintage tone and dynamics
Part homage to Stratocasters of the 1950s and part showcase for Fender's modern upgrades, the Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster Ash is a result of decades of development. With a lightweight ash body and modern neck profile, it aims to be a comfortable experience for all players.

Ash Affords a Unique Look and Sound

Upon picking up the American Deluxe, the first thing you're likely to notice is the prominent grain pattern of the ash wood body. Pick it up and you'll see how light ash feels on the shoulders. Play it and hear the airy twang the tonewood offers -- the ideal voicing for country or blues. Bolted to the body is a 22-fret maple neck in a modern "C" shape. Committed to making this a fast-playing neck, Fender topped it with a compound-radius maple fretboard, with frets that flatten out towards the higher end for more comfortable lead play.

Versatile Electronics Make Palette of Tones

The American Deluxe is equipped with the classic three-pickup Strat setup, but makes use of some of Fender's contemporary enhancements to its electronics. First, this Strat is loaded with three Fender Noiseless N3 pickups, which preserve the well-known bell-like tone of the single-coils, while reducing the troublesome hum commonly associated with them. Fender's S-1 switching system opens up 5 pickup combination possibilities, including out-of-phase options.

Bend-Friendly Hardware

Strats have always been favorites of whammy bar abusers and the American Deluxe carries on that tradition by sporting a Deluxe 2-Point Synchronized Tremolo. Helping you make the most of this feature are the locking tuning machines on the headstock, there to keep the Strat in tune through all your dive-bombs and flutters.

Features:

- Ash-bodied Stratocaster
- Maple neck in modern "C" shape
- 22-fret compound-radius maple fretboard

- S-1 switching system offers 5 pickup combinations

Product Description

Fender's American Deluxe Stratocaster Ash gives you the distinct grain pattern and spanking tone of an ash body, with all the cool features of the American Deluxe Stratocaster. A compound radius fretboard allows simple string bending anywhere along the neck. The N3 Noiseless pickups offer improved Stratocaster tones for sparkling bell-like chime with no hum, and reconfigured S-1 switching offers yet more distinctive tonal options. Other features on the Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster Ash 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 ash features a maple compound radius fretboard for slightly brighter sound and faster action.
Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (11 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "If you have the money then get it."
Sound: I love the sound of the guitar. The S1 switch is not to much to my liking in the neck position but all others are pretty cool. Overall it sounds great. Feature: I don't use the S1 switch too much. The pop tremolo arm is pretty awesome. I bought this guitar for the overall American craftsmanship. The neck feels very nice. The guitar stays in tune nicely. Ease of Use: I recommend getting a set up from a professional but you can play this guitar right out of the box. Mine needed only minor adjustments but when those adjustments were made I couldn't put it down. Quality: American craftsmanship. Value: Very pricy but I'd do it again. Manufacturer Support: What's that for? Overall: This guitar is going to last me a long time I'm sure of it. If it got lost or stolen I'd be sick and have to buy another one.
Style of Music: Rock, blues

"great strat....but beware of pickups!"
Overall: First off, let me just say I love this guitar. I own, and have owned, several strats in my 20 years of playing and this by far is my favorite. This is my first foray into Ash bodys, and I must say Im hooked! Having said that...I think Fender might want to up the anty on their Pickup quality control. I bought this guitar from zZounds, awaited patiently for its arrival, and furiously ripped open the box when it arrived. I plugged it into my amp and....no neck PU. The other two worked/sounded great, but the neck was outputting about 5% of its normal volume. Now, having built/rewired/repaired several guitars, I went to work trouble shooting as best as I could without voiding the warranty. No-go. Finally I gave up...concluding that since I have experienced more than one faulty Fender PU before, there was nothing I can do. So I called them back, and promptly requested a replacement guitar. A week or less later I had my new guitar, in perfect working order. No more than 3 months down the road THIS neck PU died as well....new guitar, same exact problem. I guess there is a issue with the neck N3 PUs, huh?? Anyway, after some back and forth with zZounds and fender (getting nowhere) I finally decided to just give up and rip the PU's out and replace them with good ones, and its been amazing ever since.
