The Deluxe Stratocaster is a 2004 special edition Squier with an impressive figured Maple top (Flame or Quilted) and White Pearl pickguard. Finishes like this are typically seen on guitars costing 10 times as much. It is an amazing value, and it's a real Fender-designed Stratocaster! These special-run instruments are a cut above the rest in visual appeal.

"Gotta Have it!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Nothing could replace my Fender, I love it, don't need to search for anything, when you got what is Real Quality.
Sound
Just like a more pricey one! Same keys,same hardware. Of course pickups copuld be hotter. But other devices pick up that easily.Loks and plays like a true Fender.
Features
In the future a case would be nice to inclde for an additional cost. Just to protect such a prize.
Ease of Use
With all the pedals and rack systems available no longer do you have to purchase a $1000.00 guitar. You get that here! Save your money and re-invest it in eq's and the like you will anyway, so get this model and be satisfied; a value worth much more than 250.00. Played ones over 700.00, b-4, no difference, they all go out of tune,buy it.
Quality
Anyplace you play it would be appropriate. I t fits me like a glove, like an old friend when you see them again. That's something you don't get with other brands. It just fits me to a "T". Thanks Fender! great workmanship and quality for the money,no-one compares.
Value
Of greater value!,assuredly.
Manufacturer Support
I'd rate it higher but put it this way; competitors come very close indeed,but you got them beat. That's experience for ya.
The Wow Factor
Burst finish,Solid Alder Body, Sealed tuning keys,jumbo frets, Maple top,pearloid pickguard. What a value, WOW!!! Not seen this value b-4. GREAT job Fender for offering a Deluxe Squire this way.Feels like an old friend who's come home.
