This Strat is as Beautiful as it is Playable

You've never seen a Stratocaster quite like the Fender American Select Stratocaster. This solidbody electric guitar is what Strat aficionados have been hoping for. You get premium tonewoods, high-end appointments, and custom electronics, all wrapped up into a highly-collectible - and playable - Stratocaster design. It's the Strat that helped form the sound of modern music, now built as much for looks as it is for tone and feel. From the rich sound to the smooth playability, the Fender American Select Stratocaster is in a class all its own.

Premium choice of woods

Fender held nothing back when designing the American Select Stratocaster. In fact, we've never seen a Strat like this at Sweetwater before. It's got a highly-figured flame maple top, highlighted by a hand-stained finish. The neck is birdseye maple, quartersawn for extreme strength. And the compound-radius rosewood fretboard is buffed, an extra dose of class you won't find on many guitars. While these details look amazing, they all add to the incredibly rich tone of the American Select Stratocaster.

Custom electronics

The Fender American Select Strat's two single-coil pickups and single humbucker were wound and voiced specifically for the Select series. You won't find these pickups anywhere else. They're slightly overwound, for a lively output that's rich and vibrant - they're a perfect match for getting classic Strat tones from virtually any amplifier.

The Select neck

The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, which is why the Fender American Select Stratocaster features a quartersawn birdseye maple neck. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks is about 50% more stable than plain-sawn necks, and less likely to warp, twist or shrink. You'll also love the playability and feel of the Select Strat's contoured heel and 14" radius when you're playing higher up the fretboard. Down low, your fretting hand will appreciate the 9.5" radius that keeps things nice and comfortable for natural, relaxed arpeggio work.

Fender American Select Stratocaster Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Classic Stratocaster design with premium tonewoods, custom electronics, and a quartersawn neck for a top-shelf playing experience
  • Flame maple top with a hand-stained finish for a collectible look
  • Rosewood fingerboard with 9.5"-14" compound radius supports smooth, relaxed playing up and down the neck
  • Custom-voiced, overwound pickups, developed exclusively for the Select series
  • Quartersawn maple neck enhances rigidity and resonance
  • Custom G&G hardshell case included

Whether you buy for looks, feel, or tone, the Fender American Select Stratocaster will exceed your expectations!
