Huge bang for the buck!American-made quality at an amazing price! Fender's American Special Stratocaster® HSS gives you many of the most popular features from past Strat® models at a price that's nearly unheard of for a made-in-America FENDER®. It all starts with an alder body for classic Strat sparkle, all wrapped up in a great looking gloss urethane finish. The FENDER® trademark maple neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard for a little added warmth, and jumbo frets make it easy to bend with passion with the American Special Stratocaster HSS!
Be sure to cut through the mix, thanks to the powerful combination of Fender's popular Atomic Humbucker™ at the bridge and Texas Special™ single coils at the neck and middle positions. Used together in any one of the five possible positions, the pickups give you classic Fender tones with the added intensity you can only get from a hot Humbucker™. A "Greasebucket" tone circuit and vintage-style tremolo round out the features on this beauty. If you're looking for an American-made Strat with unbeatable bang for the buck, it's the American Special Stratocaster HSS!

Fender American Special Strat HSS ( 3-Tone Sunburst)
by Jack from Waynesburg PaOverall great guitar played perfect right out of the box , the sound and playability is what you would expect from Fender the guitar I received was a beauty. I did however have a few minor issues with... read more [+] this guitar, there were some screws that could have been a bit tighter and there was one screw on the trem cover that was about 1/16 of an inch or so from being screwed down flush. When I tightened it down I was shocked that it wasn't even turned in all the way when it shipped from Fender, I could feel the screw biting untapped wood. This is my first such experience with this issue from an American Fender I hope that the Fender Q.C. team will be a bit more observant in the future. The set up was great from Sweetwater the guitar plays like a dream however I hope that the Sweetwater team will pay more attention to detail in the future . Please don't get me wrong I love this guitar and will continue to do much more buisness with them in the future . They have a top notch staff from top to bottom and are always very easy to deal with. I love Fender Strats and this one will not be my last. Quality instrument at a great price I would recommend this guitar to anyone in the market for a new guitar. close [-]
