Fender American Deluxe HSS Stratocaster
I've had my new Stratocaster for six weeks now, I can say it follows in the quality that I have come to expect from Fender. This new American Deluxe is the model with a humbucker in the bridge position and single coil pickups in the middle and neck positions. I have had an American Deluxe Stratocaster with the 3 single coil pickups for two years and it has become my favorite guitar. When Sweetwater announced a $250 price cut on an already fair priced American Deluxe, I could not resist buying another, of course with the different pickup configuration. The S1 switch incorporated into the volume knob really adds to an already nice selection of tones, tones, I might add that are truely useful. The quality that Fender builds into their product cannot be understated. The maple fretboard is beautifuly finished and feels wonderful. All the surfaces of the guitar are flawless. These American Deluxe Stratocasters are a joy to play, they are well built, beautiful and have a diverse tonal range. You will not regret purchasing one.
