The HSS Strat for a New Generation!
If you're looking for a Strat with tons of tone that's fun to play, you're looking for an American Deluxe Strat HSS! This gorgeous guitar takes the original Fender design to a whole new level. Now, there's no need to mod your guitar or turn to pricey custom shop options just to get the configuration you want. You asked for a compound-radius neck, noiseless pickups, and more tone options — Fender listened, and Sweetwater delivers. When you pick up an American Deluxe Strat HSS, you get more than just a beautiful instrument, you get a precision axe that's consistent enough for the stage and versatile enough for the studio.
A 9.5"-14" compound-radius maple neck lets you form chords easily on the steeper curve of the American Deluxe Strat HSS's lower frets. The flatter upper frets are perfect for shredding or soloing, especially if you bend notes. Add to that a beveled neck heel and a lightweight custom-contoured alder body, and you've got an axe that will let you play all night without taking out your back. Tired of those noisy single-coil pickups but unwilling to give up their warm tone and responsive bite? The American Deluxe Strat HSS's N3 noiseless pickups give you the sound of a classic single-coil, without the noise.
The American Deluxe Strat HSS also comes equipped with an Atomic humbucker at the bridge, for the full sonic range you expect from an HSS configuration. This fat-sounding humbucker gives you an incredibly beefy tone loaded with harmonics. In addition to a classic 5-way switch, the American Deluxe Strat HSS is also armed with a newly designed S-1 switch. This all-new "passing-lane" configuration cuts out the tone knob and instantly routs your output straight to the bridge, giving you a super-hot tone with massive harmonics — perfect for kicking it into overdrive and launching into solos! And to top it all off, this custom-quality guitar comes with a molded SKB case and strap locks, at an off-the-shelf price.Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Solidbody Guitar Features at a Glance:
