Combining S-1 switching and N3 noiseless single coils with additional features like a compound-radius neck with Modern “C” shape and beveled heel, lightweight alder body and 22 medium jumbo frets, the Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster is as tonally versatile as it is playable.
About Fender Deluxe Series:
Founded by Leo Fender in 1938 as Fender’s Radio Service, what is now the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation began making electric guitars and amplifiers in 1945. The rest, as they say, is history. Creator of the world’s first mass-produced, and by far most popular, solid-bodied electric, Fender is now the world’s leading guitar manufacturer.
The Fender American Deluxe Series (now discontinued) offers select upgrades on Fender’s flagship models. N3 noiseless pickups are tuned to each position for maximum warmth and clarity without the hum and S-1 switching expands the classic Fender sound to feature new pickup combinations and tonal options, pushing Fender’s core portfolio of solid-body electric guitars into the modern age and beyond.
