Timeless US Style with Contemporary Features

Classic American design and quality build combines with modern features such as a trio of Texas Special single-coil Stratocaster pickups, special circuitry, a modern neck profile and more to produce the Fender American Special Stratocaster.

Fender American Special Stratocaster Limited Walnut Finish Key Features:

  • Limited Edition Walnut Finish, New for 2018
  • Maple Neck with “C” Profile and “Large” Headstock
  • 9.5” Radius Maple Fingerboard
  • Three Texas Special Single-Coil Stratocaster Pickups
  • Five-Way Pickup Switch

  • Vintage-Style Synchronised Tremolo Bridge

Crafting the American Special Strat

Alder has been used to craft the iconic double-cutaway design of the Stratocaster body, allowing for easy reach of the higher frets – essential for guitar solos, lead guitar and other adventurous styles.

With its shiny gloss urethane finish, the American Special Stratocaster has a beautifully glassy sheen while also being protected from the adverse effects of weather, ageing and fading.

At the headstock you’ll find six cast/sealed tuning machines allowing for easy tuning of your strings while down on the body is a 6-saddle vintage-style synchronised tremolo bridge.

Complete with tremolo arm, you can deliver all that incredible whammy action that is a staple of old-school rock ‘n’ roll.

Modern Neck with Satin Finish

Designed for comfort and performance, the American Special Stratocaster has a Maple neck that has a smooth satin back finish and a modern C-shaped profile.

Atop the neck is a Maple fretboard featuring jumbo frets. Wide and tall, jumbo frets are the largest size available and they give you improved grip on the strings, making bends and vibrato easier than ever.

Special Electronics

Making use of a Greasebucket tone circuit, when you dial down the tone knobs on the Fender American Special Stratocaster you roll off the high end without creating any additional emphases on bass.

The result is sparkling clean tone that doesn’t get muddy and sounds great when overdriven.

Giving the American Special Stratocaster is voice is a set of three single-coil Texas Special pickups. These pickups have been over-wound in order to produce a big Texas-blues tone with dynamic and seriously hot output.

Using Alnico 5 magnets, enamel-coated magnet wire and staggered pole pieces ensuring balanced output across each string, these pickups can really sing, scream and give you everything in between with crystal-clear highs, focused mid-range and bass that is tight and right.
