Fender Stratocaster: the look and sound of rock 'n' roll

The Fender Stratocaster has helped shape the sound of rock 'n' roll for the past 60 years, from psychedelia and surf rock to punk rock and metal. The Deluxe Strat carries on that tradition today with the classic build players love - a comfortable ash body and fast maple neck for superior tone and playability - with over a dozen new innovations to continue to inspire great music for the next generation.

Vintage single-coil tone without hum and buzz

Sweetwater Fender fanatics are impressed with the arsenal of tones found in this Stratocaster, by virtue of its Vintage Noiseless pickups. Alnico 2 magnets and enamel-coated magnet wire, along with Fender's Noiseless Technology, produce a rich vintage Strat sound that is virtually free of buzz and hum. The Deluxe Strat features a discrete push-push mini switch that activates the bridge pickup in positions four and five. Craft interesting sounds using the bridge and neck pickups together, or combine all three for flexible tones that will invigorate your playing.

my first fender Stratocaster made in Mexico

I was one of those guys who would be online buying used guitars fenders only to find out that the next were warped or they just needed a lot of work. To my advice from my technicians or should I say DS Music in new Ark Delaware. Dave who is the guitar technician and Steve who is also awesome guitar player and technician told me to stop buying these guitars and buy a fender well on a low budget I found this guitar I got a great deal. This guitar is everything I expected it to be I love the vintage blonde because I love natural wood it's easy to play but note the heavier to string it will pull up on the bridge as you go to tune a strange you'll notice it a lift up the bridge so I went back to the original strings fender set with tickets are the bridge sets level low set up and the hire fret and the wider space makes it almost impossible to not hit records you'll love this guitar if you don't have the money to spend on American Strat . And a blindfold test only the best musician would maybe tell the difference I recommend this guitar you'll get your money's worth it's good for stage locking tuners excellent guitar highly recommend it

Great Strat for a non-start guy

I'll start this review by saying that I've owned about 10 Stratocasters in my life, and ended up selling every one of them. I did so, because in the end, I just didn't gel with them. The ones I've owned have been of many variations: traditional single coils, hum bucker in the bridge, maple necks, rosewood necks, American made, and Mexican made, so on and so forth. None of them worked for me. Now, despite this I've always still been drawn to Strats. The look and sound are so classic yet incredibly versatile. So I've always kept an eye out for another one to try and make it work. I saw this guitar on Sweetwater, and had to give it a go. The neck feels great, and it's 12" radius matches most of my other axes, which makes it nice and comfortable. Regardless of what you might hear about these noiseless pickups, I love them. They're punchy and twangy in that great Strat way, yet without noise. Sure, they're not vintage 50s or 60s pickups, but they have their own nice sound. Finally, the guitar just looks fantastic. So far I've used it for Country, Blues, and Funk, but I'm sure it can find a place in any genre I get hired for. Special shout out to Yuval and the whole Sweetwater team. I had them put 11s on it and set it up before shipping, and it came out of the case ready to go. Top notch!

One of my favorite guitars.

First off, I was attracted to how this guitar looks: with it's natural ash body, maple fretboard, and large head stock. Then, when I got it, it even plays and sounds better than it looks! The vintage noiseless pickups are incredible, whether you want to sound like Buddy Holly or Jimmy Hendricks. The action is fabulous, plays really well rhythm or lead. It has a button that, when pressed, activates the lead pickup when the pickup selector is in the 4th or 5th position, so you can have all 3 pickups on at the same time or have the lead and neck pickups on at the same time. The price is very reasonable for a guitar that I consider one of the best of any guitar regardless of price.

Awesome Guitar and Terrific Service

This is a beautiful guitar. For a 'Made In Mexico' it is well built. It does have a lot of the bells and whistles like the elite strat. They sound different obviously, but in a good way. The deluxe strat is a classic sound, where as, the elite has a more modern tone. For the money, this guitar is worth purchasing. Sweetwater customer service is one of the best. You won't be disappointed.P.S. Also recommend the Fender Modern Player Telecaster. It's $499.00 Made in China Tones of a Tele, Strat, and Humbuckers in one guitarGreat for a beginner looking to get their 1st decent guitar
