A USA-made Fender Stratocaster with high-end features at an import price.

The Fender American Special Stratocaster is outfitted with a gloss urethane-finished alder body, a 9.5" radius maple neck with a modern C profile, and a maple fingerboard fitted with 22 jumbo frets. A trio of Texas Special single-coil pickups give you lots of gain and tones galore while the Fender Greasebucket tone circuits rolls off the highs without adding bass.

  • great guitar

    As reviewed by Paul on 8/2/2010

    I have two 1988 strats this American special with maple neck put to rest any worries about the quality of the new strats. One of my 88 strats has the E4 neck and I like the Specials neck better. The Texas specials are so good that I'm consiering chaning my 88's to texas specials.

  • Great Sound!

    As reviewed by Juan Carlos on 8/17/2010

    The Texas Special pickups sound amazing - they are warm and powerful. I like my Standard Strat, but I love this American Special!
