A New Level of Deluxe Strat!
The Fender Custom Shop reinvented the Deluxe Stratocaster for 2013, creating a solidbody electric guitar that gives you the classic Strat tone you depend on, phenomenal dynamics, and unbelievably good looks. On the tonewood side, the Deluxe Stratocaster delivers the balanced resonance of an okoume-backed AAA flame maple body bolstered by a mid-'60s oval C-shaped neck that's also AAA flame maple. Taking full advantage of this sonic hotbed are a trio of Custom Shop Fat '50s pickups - a recipe for classic Strat tone. Top it off with pearl-button chrome tuners and a 1018 milled steel tremolo bridge, and there's nothing not to dig about this Fender Custom Shop Deluxe Stratocaster guitar.

At the Fender Custom Shop, they know that amazing art often flies in the face of conventions. That's why they designed the 2013 Deluxe Stratocaster with a collection of tonewoods that's unique, gorgeous, and incredibly sweet sounding. As a base, they hand selected the finest okoume, whose lightweight and resonant character balances the bright and powerful overtones added by a jaw-dropping AAA flamed maple top and neck. Add to that a smooth playing 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard, and Deluxe Stratocaster is both 100 percent Fender and totally original.Premium Custom Shop pickups deliver iconic Strat tone
