A classic that's updated with hum-free electronics and a super comfortable neck.

The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster has all the modern features today's guitarists require. The compound radius fingerboard allows effortless string bending anywhere along the neck, and N3 Noiseless pickups provide improved Stratocaster tones for sparkling bell-like chime with no hum. Reconfigured S-1 switching offers other distinctive tonal options; other features include staggered locking tuners, two-point synchronized American Deluxe tremolo bridge with pop-in arm, and beveled neck heel.

Fender N3 Noiseless pickups
N3 Noiseless pickups deliver the best of yesterday and today, because they deliver landmark vintage Fender tone and response without the hum that can plague single-coil pickups. Using an improved stacked coil-coil design, N3 Noiseless pickups are specially tailored for each Stratocaster and Telecaster pickup position. The insulated metal core of each pickup position type differs in thickness and composition for enhanced tone, and Fender has fine-tuned the sized, shape, and wire gauge of the coils to balance the magnetic responsiveness essential to great tone. N3 pickups represent a welcome return to the warmth and clarity of alnico magnets. An Alnico 5 magnet is used in the bridge position, Alnico 2 in the middle position, and Alnico 3 for the neck position. Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

  • The power of Burgundy Mist!

    As reviewed by Tim on 7/22/2014

    I needed another strat like I needed a hole in the head, but I was drawn to finish of this guitar for some reason. Granted it's not for everyone, but I think Burgundy Mist holds a special place for fans of the vintage Fender finishes. I have a 2005 American Deluxe, and compared to that it holds up well, although the 2014 isn't superior. My only complaint is that Fender stopped using the LSR roller nuts on these models. They are so much better than the synthetic bone (euphemism for plastic) that are currently stock on these models. The N3 single coils are very bright. I had to roll the tone down to fatten it up a bit. This American Deluxe is capable of all the classic strat tones you'd expect, but it's also extremely versatile for whatever style you're playing. Although it's a little on the heavy side, the guitar is very comfortable and a joy to play. And again - that finish - WOW! It's not perfect - but it's very close. I'd give it a 4.5 if I could. Either way - Fender is still making quality American Made products, and there's something to be said for that.
