From Our Research Team:
Huge bang for the buck!American-made quality at an amazing price! Fender's American Special Stratocaster® 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 maple fingerboard for a little added spank, and jumbo frets make it easy to bend with passion with the American Special Stratocaster!
Be sure to cut through the mix, thanks to a trio of Fender's Texas Special™ single coils. Used together in any one of the five possible positions, the pickups give you classic Fender tones that have been with us since the dawn of the Strat®. But these pickups have a little something extra that sets the American Special Strat apart from previous Strat incarnations. 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!

Fender American Special Stratocaster (2-Tone Sunburst)
by Jack from Waynesburg PaWhat a great guitar for the price, With money being tight for most of us these days I must say it was a treat to find that Fender has given us something to feel better about . The guitar that I picked... read more [+] out looked very nice , I had worries that the materials used in this series would be less than good .Plays great sounds great feels nice and looks like a top notch instrument. I would highly recommend this guitar to anybody in the market .If you are like me it may take a few jam sessions to get the amp and guitar tones dialed in , the texas special pickups sound great clean and gritty but it took me a few days to get that heavier sound I wanted. The best thing about this purchase was the people at Sweetwater, it was a surprise to find that they actually set their guitars up before they ship them mine arrived set up perfect right out of the box. A quick tune of the strings and I put it through its paces.I am waiting for the HSS 3-tone Sunburst to get in stock so I can buy one of them as well.My thanks to the staff at Sweetwater I think that I have found my new guitar shop and will do the bulk of my business with them . close [-]

Candy American Special Strat
by Ken from Seattle, Wa USALove the throaty Texas Special pickups, without effects I get that SRV sound off my AC 30. The neck takes a bit to get used to, play a lot on my Tele and HSS Strat with the normal fret and neck size.... read more [+] Can hear a real difference in the sustain, most likely do to neck and headstock. It stays in tune really great, even after playing with the trem bar. Need to restring, I like the sound of elixir's and most likley stay with the .009's (light's). Yes, this guitar neck is made to bend notes, and with those pickups, the blues are better!

Only thing that did upset me is that there are 2 dust specks on the neck behind the 3rd fret, for the money you'd think the QC was better on the American Strat, my HSS is a Mexi and no flaws. You just feel them but in no way does it effect the playability. (thus only 4.5) For your money you can't find a better American made guitar!
Last of all my buddy who is a pro-musician, was very impressed, he couldn't believe the price, and I had to pry it away from him. He plays on an older custom shop Strat and really been playing as a pro for 40 years, that says it all for me! close [-]
