Externally the American Elite Stratocaster has Fender’s timeless style, but under the hood it’s an entirely new breed of guitar designed for 21st-century players who constantly push the envelope. With over a dozen new innovations, each guitar is a true performer with eye-catching style, exceptional feel and versatile sound from the very first moment you plug it in and play.
The Fender American Elite Series means what it says: Elite. Elite upgrades to iconic Fender classics like the Stratocaster, Telecaster, and Precision and Jazz Basses. New compound neck profiles with rounded heels maximize playability. Soft touch knobs feature integrated switching for instant, seamless adjustment. Short post tuning machines sit flush with each other to ensure stable tuning. The new Suspension Bridge eschews screws in favor of more efficient transfer of vibration, increasing sustain and response, and redesigned body contours and exclusive colors look and feel good in the hand, because this is no ordinary electric guitar. This is Fender American Elite.
