Fender's American Special series of Stratocasters are designed for players of any level that are looking for a US-made Stratocaster with a combination of timeless Fender style and contemporary features. This Strat is equipped wtih three Texas Special™ single-coil pickups with special circuitry, modern neck profile and fingerboard radius and more.

Vintage-Style Bridge
The vintage-style syncrhonized tremolo bridge on this American Special Stratocaster imparts classic style and tone, with narrower saddles that allow more comfortable string spacing.

Greasebucket™ Tone Circuit
The tone-control electronics in this Strat include Fender's Greasebucket tone circuit. When dialing down the tone knobs, this circuitry rolls of high-end without creating additional emphasis on bass. That keeps the tone from getting muddy, and it helps create sparkling clean tone and great overdriven sounds too.

Gloss Urethane Finish
The shiny gloss urethane finish on American Special series instruments imparts a beautifully glassy sheen and especially vivid color in a highly durable coating that effectively resists the ravages of weather, aging, and fading.

Jumbo Frets
The largest of the fret sizes, jumbo frets are tall and wide, which lets you get a better grip on the strings, enabling more control over them and making bends and vibrato easier. A good choice for players with larger hands and thicker fingers.

Modern Neck with "C" Profile and Satin Back Finish
American Special guitars feature a modern neck designed for comfort and performance with a contemporary "C"-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) and a smooth satin finish. Ideal for those who play with the thumb on the back or side of the neck.

Texas Special Pickups
Single-coil Texas Special pickups are over-wound for bit Texas-blues tone wtih dynamically scorching output. With alnico 5 magnets, enamel-coated magnet wire, and staggered pole pieces for balanced output across each string, the sing, scream, and everything in-between with tight bass, focused midrange, and crystalline highs.
