the American Elite Stratocaster replaces the American Deluxe range, and it's a progressive guitar for 21st-century musicians.Left-handed version, in 3-Colour Sunburst.
Fender has not forgotten the lefties, who can also enjoy the new American Strat, which returns in 2016 better than ever! The American Deluxe range is now replaced by the American Elite, offering the very best Fender US-made models. A great Strat designed for players who push the envelope every night, this guitar is a true performer that leaves others in the dust with eye-catching style, exceptional feel and versatile sound from the very first moment you plug it in and play. Featured on all American Elite instruments are the new 4th generation Noiseless pickups, which are only available in this series and represent a quantum leap in pickup design.
Combining vintage-style sound with effectively noise-free performance, these are the pinnacle of Fender’s noiseless pickup designs, offering pristine cleans and fat, overdriven tones that scream with pure rock ‘n’ roll power. Designed for fast playing and effortless position changes, the compound profile neck is ideal for all playing styles.
An Upgraded Neck
A modern “C”-shape at the nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of comfortable support for fret hand antics. Locking, all short-post tuning machines provide increased break angle at the nut for buzz-free performance.
The smooth two-point modern tremolo adds emotive touches to your performance without sacrificing your tuning. Fender is renowned for head-turning style, and this guitar is no different—fromnewly refined, sleek and deeper contours that hug the player’s body to the black chrome headstock logo and large pearloid fret markers this instrument will dazzle the audience with elegant style.
