Made in the USA: Your Guide to Fender's American Models

Made in the USA Fender Buying Guide

When it comes to a trusty 6-string, discerning players prize the feel and the look of a Fender made in the USA. Sought after by beginners, weekend warriors, and stage-savvy pros alike, these classic models embody craftsmanship that is imitated, but never duplicated. Ranging from the "Special" to the "Vintage" series, these American-made Fenders come in a flavor for each player's needs. Check out some of our selections below to see what makes these tools of the trade as American as apple pie and find the right axe for you.
American Special Guitars and Basses
So you've paid your dues banging away on that old Standard Strat in the garage and you're coming into your own as a player. The American Special series is our first stop in upgrading your first Fender to an iconic classic out of sunny Corona, California. These guitars feature a thinner undercoat for better body resonance, 22 jumbo frets, and Texas Special pickups -- the most requested artist choice from the Fender Custom Shop. Fret not, four string players, much like the guitars, these American Special basses feature a lighter gloss coat on the body, vintage-inspired Alnico pickups, and a fast-playing satin neck.

American Standard Guitars
The Strat and Tele have been around the block a few times and have seen their share of refinements throughout the years. Originally introduced in 1986, the "American Standard" series hit the scene as what some players would call a "basic" US-made Strat. American Fender models are a Swiss Army knife of tones and when compared to your garden variety import, you'll see why they've set the Standard across the US and the world over. These models are decked out with their respective Custom Shop pickups -- Fat '50s single-coils on the Strat, a Diamondback humbucking pickup on the HSS models, and a Broadcaster and Twisted single-coil pairing on the Tele with upgraded tone circuitry. Additionally, these American Standards are offered with advanced components that don't make a sound, such as the Bi-flex truss rod and the "Micro-Tilt" adjustment system to keep your guitar playing just as great as it sounds.

American Standard Basses
In a world of Strat jangle and Tele twang, you can bet that a Fender American Standard bass is ready to report for duty to fill that low-end void. These 4- and 5-string workhorses lock in the groove and bring the boom you've heard for years on hundreds of classic recordings. Similar to their 6-string counterparts, you can expect the Custom Shop to put their spin on these basses; many of these models come equipped with the ever-popular '60s single-coil, which sounds just as iconic as these basses look. You'll also notice the upgraded vintage-style "paddle" tuning keys and a high-mass, bridge which allows for top-load or string-thru functionality to transfer your booming bass notes to the body for superior sustain. To complete the package, a "Modern-C" neck shape on both models makes for a slick and quick-playing satin neck in your hands.

American Deluxe Basses
Round and mellow? Or snap and pop? Dial it in on the fly with the American Deluxe series of basses. From the classic feel of Jazz and Precision basses to their modern Dimension basses, Fender has pushed the envelope to give players the most control ever in their 4- and 5-strings. These J and P basses serious air by combining their N3 noiseless pickups with user-controlled active and passive electronics and an equalizer section for loads of headroom and tone sculpting options. Dimension basses do the same, but with their own punchy humbuckers. To top it off, All American Deluxe basses are offered with choice cuts of both premium Ash and Alder, bone nuts, and a high-mass bridge for low end with no compromises.
