A thorough redesign makes this old classic an entirely new thing. Bringing the Stratocaster into the 21st century, Fender added a new fourth generation SSS pickup set, compound neck and fingerboard, and S-1 switching to the list of features on this American Elite model. Same big sound. Same pure tone. More versatile and customizable than ever.
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.
