Classic Strat Tone and Feel with Streamlined Control Set

The Fender 2014 Proto Strat is one of the finest solidbody electrics you'll find in the Sweetwater Guitar Gallery, with some premium features normally requested for Fender's Master Built instruments. The light ash body is complemented with a AAA birdseye maple neck with satin finish for a fast, smooth feel. The 9.5" fretboard radius gives you the true feel of a classic Strat. And with a trio of single-coil pickups (two Texas Specials and one Fat '60s), you've got everything you need to make your amplifier sing with the Fender 2014 Proto Strat.

Fender 2014 Proto Strat Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Iconic Strat tone delivered by a trio of special pickups
  • Maintain your gain while rolling back the Greasebucket tone control
  • Your tuning stability is amazing thanks to locking tuners and a graphite nut
Iconic Strat tone delivered by a trio of special pickups

Fender's Texas Special single-coil pickups give you the sound that redefined Texas Blues, and the Fender 2014 Proto Strat packs two of them in the neck and middle positions. The low-end is nice and tight, mids have plenty of bark and bite, with bell-like highs on top. Alnico 5 magnets and enamel-coated magnet wire give you these pickups increased output your tube amp has been begging for. Factor in the Fat '60s bridge pickup, and you've got a wide range of vintage tone with the 2014 Proto Strat.

Maintain your gain while rolling back the Greasebucket tone control

If you love those throaty, midrange-rich Strat tones, you're no stranger to rolling back your tone knob a bit. And you've probably noticed many guitars lose a bit of gain when you do so. With the Greasebucket tone circuit on the 2014 Proto Strat, your gain level is maintained even when you roll the master tone control all the way back. You get that filtered, vowel-like tone while still hitting your pedals and amplifier just right.

Your tuning stability is amazing thanks to locking tuners and a graphite nut

The ultra-smooth properties of graphite allow your strings to move effortlessly through the 2014 Proto Strat's nut, with no worries of strings binding or snags occurring. And Fender's locking tuners give you incredible tuning stability, even during marathon playing sessions. In short, you'll re-tune less and play a lot more with the 2014 Proto Strat.
