      Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar (423687)
Availability:  


Incorporates evolutionary advances while retaining the look and feel that has made the Stratocaster legendary.

The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS is for guitarists who demand more from their electric guitar. The compound-radius fretboard encourages exhilaratingly effortless string bending anywhere along the neck. 2 new Fender N3 noiseless pickups supercharge your sound with improved Stratocaster tones while the DH-1 humbucking bridge pickup is right there when you need to take everything up to 11—all with no hum.

Reconfigured S-1 switching offers even more knockout tonal options. The all-new "passing lane" switch instantly routes your signal from any pickup position to the bridge position with the tone circuit bypassed, blasting overtones and volume straight into the Strat-osphere. Other American Deluxe features include staggered locking tuners, an LSR roller nut, 2-point synchronized American Deluxe tremolo bridge with pop-in arm, and a beveled neck heel. Fender includes a molded Fender-exclusive SKB case with glass-reinforced latches and TSA locks, cable, and strap locks with the American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS.

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 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.

  • Finally a Versatile Stratocaster

    As reviewed by Jimmy Loeffler on 5/2/2012

    The new deluxe strat is the ideal guitar for guitarists who play many styles of music. I have had this guitar for about a year in metallic sunburst and it has held up pretty well. What first turned me onto this guitar was how the body resonated acoustically. It has a very bright response to it and it shines even more-so when you plug it in. The whammy is incredible and in conjunction with the locking tuners and the LSR nut, it stays in tune very well. Also it comes with a floating tremolo which can be pretty cool if you're going to do some Jeff Beck dive bombs and flutters. The humbucker is surprisingly bright and the neck and middle N3's have a pretty balanced sound. Not too bright but not too bassy. Overall the guitar can produce some awesome distorted solo tones, but at the same time shine on the clean channel.

  • The Perfect Axe

    As reviewed by Christopher Edrington on 11/28/2011

    I played the Fender American Deluxe HSS in the store and was sold. I decided that I wanted the Metallic Sunset color (which is awesome) so I ordered it online. The guitar arrived in about 3 days to the store in Tallahassee. These guys looked it over for me (oohed and ahhed at the color) and sent me on my way. I played it so many hours for the first few days my arms and fingers were sore! This guitar is so easy to bend on it took me some time to restrain myself to keep from overbending. The sound is awesome...especially the humbucker pickup (it just screams). The tonal quality of the guitar is really great in all the different selection modes. I'm not a big user of the whammy bar but did play with it a bit and found it to be very smooth. The locking tuners are a big plus and the roller nut works to perfection...since I broke in the strings I have not went out of tune a single time (and I bend a lot). All in all it is the best guitar I have ever owned. I would absolutely recommend it for a person who needs a versatile axe that can be used equally well for rock, blues or country.

  • Great Guitar

    As reviewed by Jim Oliver on 6/10/2013

    I got the Olympic Pearl with the rosewood fretboard version of this. All the little extras are greatly appreciated on this guitar. Between the roller nut and the locking tuners this thing pretty much stays in tune when I use the 2 way trem bar. A lot of tones to pick from without sacrificing the strat sound. Solidly built and beautiful to look at and extremely comfortable to play. My only complaint is, for a deluxe guitar the case is a little cheesy. Solid and functional but cheesy looking. At least I don't mind scratching it up.(the case that is)
