      Fender Select Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Maple Fingerboard (H78840)

Masterful tone and first-rate features.

The Fender Select Stratocaster is the sonic embodiment of tone-machine elegance, featuring a stunning Dark Cherry Burst gloss-lacquer finish on a sleek flame maple-top body. Its modern â??Câ? shaped flame maple neck has a comfortable contoured heel, Bi-Flexâ?¢ truss rod system for rock-solid stability, a satin lacquer back finish and rear-headstock â??Fender Selectâ? medallion. The smooth-playing compound radius flame maple fretboard (9.5â?-14â?) has 22 medium jumbo frets, stylish black pearloid position inlays and gloss lacquer finish. Pure and singing signature sound comes from new Fender Select Stratocaster single-coil neck, middle and bridge pickups with five-way switching and a no-load tone control that delivers the natural uncolored sound of the bridge pickup when dimed.

Other premium features include a three-ply pickguard (parchment-black-parchment), two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with vintage-style bent steel saddles, deluxe staggered cast/sealed locking tuners and nickel-chrome hardware. Custom G&G Fender Select case, strap, cable and polishing cloth included.

  • Not Just Another Amazing Guitar

    As reviewed by RANDY JONES on 12/31/2012

    I've been through numerous Stratocaster stages and tested them all. I currently own an American Strat, a 2011 Deluxe with N3 pups, and now this beauty. There is a very recognizable difference between these three Strat variations. All remain well within the tone and timbre requirements of the famous Stat sound, but each has it's own personality. The new Select Strat is more than just an upgrade in quality "select" woods and finishing, the sound is noticeably deeper with more gain. The pickups provide more desirable harmonic expression when over-driven, which immediately gives it it's own personality. The C-shaped neck is fast and easy to play. Could not be happier. This guitar is a dream to play. You'll love it every time you take it out of its custom case.

  • Beautiful, Buttery, and RARE!

    As reviewed by Brendan OLeary on 9/7/2012

    I love this guitar. Flat and simple. It's warm and clean (like any Strat should be) but its Select pickups, flamed maple top, and bird's eye maple neck/headstock really set this guitar apart. Add the allure of rumored "first 50" and you have yourself an instant classic. I was lucky enough to find "#4" at a Guitar Center in Sugar Land, TX. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, do your research! The Fender Select series is the tippity top of Fender quality and ingenuity!
