Fender Deluxe Stratocaster Maple

A tonally versatile guitar with time-honored Fender style and sound, the Deluxe Strat has a few tricks up its sleeve. Special switching unlocks extra pickup combinations for those moments you find yourself needing a little extra kick to stand out. Combining noise-free performance with enhanced playing comfort, this sleek instrument is a truly deluxe performer that excels on stage and in the studio.

Three Vintage Noiseless pickups offer all the clarity and articulation you've come to expect from Strat pickups--with no hum. A push/push mini-switch discretely tucked away between the tone controls, yet still easy to reach, activates the bridge pickup in positions four and five on the selector. Use the bridge and neck pickups together or combine all three pickups for flexible tone that can meet the needs of any song. Enjoy smoother travel when using the tremolo bridge, thanks to the modern two-point synchronized design, which includes bent steel saddles for classic aesthetics. A contoured neck heel and 4-bolt asymmetrical neck plate make it easy to comfortably reach the upper registers of the neck. The flatter 12"-radius fingerboard makes it easy to play fast leads and perform deep bends without fretting out. Locking short-post tuning machines provide increased break angle at the nut for buzz-free playing and enhanced tuning stability, along with quicker string changes.

The ash body bears a highly durable gloss polyurethane finish that will easily stand up to hard playing, keeping the instrument like new for years to come. Classic aesthetic touches include nickel/chrome hardware and a three-ply B/W/B pickguard, along with aged white pickup covers, control knobs and switch tip. Melding classic Fender style and sound with upgraded modern components, the Deluxe Strat is perfect for players who need a wide variety of authentic Fender tones on tap.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (10 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
Sound: Sounds great. I don't use any pedals or anything like that. It's plugged right into the amp. I play blues and rock. Works great for both of those styles. Feature: I really like the push button that basically gives you two extra positions. I think it gives you different sounds you can't get with the regular strats Ease of Use: Very easy to get an array of different tones and sounds playing clean or with distortion. Works well with my fender amp. Quality: It looks and feels very well made. Value: I think its worth the money. Manufacturer Support: Never needed them as yet The Wow Factor: I've always thought strats were one of the best looking and versatile guitars around. Overall: I've had this guitar about 6 months now and I love it! ISounds great! I got the red one. It has the noiseless pickups which some people say don't sound as good as the regular ones. I disagree. I can't tell the difference. While most strats just have the five selector switch, this has a push button that gives you two more postions when the selector is in the fourth or fifth positions. My favorite is the fifth position with the push button in. In this position you get an extremely clear and glassy tone that combines the bridge and neck pickup. Using it for some Jimi Hendix tunes right now. Can't afford one of the higher priced strats I recommend trying this one.
Style of Music: Rock , Blues

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
Sound: The noiseless pickups sound great, whether played through my Fender or Marshall amps. While not quite vintage in sound (they are slightly warmer) the guitar still has an unmistakable Fender Strat tone. The addition of the push switch does provide a hybrid Strat/Tele tone in position 5. Meaning the tone isn’t quite a Tele mid position sound, but it isn’t Strat like either.The tonal pallet though lends well to session and gig work. From glean to overdrive, the guitar works well with tube amps. Feature: The most useful features of the Deluxe Strat are the locking tuners, the noiseless pickups, the two point trem and the push switch to add the bridge pickup to positions 4 & 5. This makes the Deluxe Strat a very versatile session and gigging guitar.The real upside though is the 12” radius fretboard. For a guitarist used to Les Pauls this was a comfortable neck to play on. Ease of Use: If you know how to set up a guitar or have a guitar tech set up the guitar for the way you play and like it’s a pleasure to play. Definitely not a guitar you have to fight to get a good tone out of. Quality: The quality of build is excellent. The parts used are all from American made series of the past making this MIM Strat a huge value for the money spent. Value: The selling price for the Deluxe Strat offers features that can be found only on Fender American guitars in previous years. The value is so good I’ll be looking for another in the near future. Manufacturer Support: I haven’t had to use Fender Support for this guitar. The Wow Factor: The features combined with the transparent sapphire blue finish really is striking. I get compliments on this guitar every time it’s out. I’m partial to the CBS era headstocks and blonde maple necks which really is a personal preference. Overall: I’ve had the sapphire blue version of the Strat Deluxe since February. After receiving the guitar which was well packed, I had to set up and re-intonate the guitar for the strings and tuning I use (1/2 step down). The overall build quality and sound met or exceeded my expectations.
Style of Music: I play jazz, country, hard rock, metal, pop, or whatever the situation demands.
