Fender American Elite Series
Introduced at NAMM 2016, Fender’s American Elite Series was born out of a never-ending pursuit of creativity and expression. Innovative features such as 4th Generation Noiseless Pickups, a new cutaway neck heel, easy-adjustable truss rod wheel, short post tuners, and redesigned body contours allow players to achieve an immediate connection and comfort with the instrument.
Fender American Elite Stratocaster
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.
