A limited-run combination of wood grain, aluminium and classic appointments.
The American Stratocaster Faded Ash introduces a visually striking new Strat style. It features a never-before-seen brown anodized aluminum pickguard, which accentuates the attractive wood grain visible through the ash body’s elegantly faded satin lacquer finish. Together, these create a complete aesthetic entirely new in nearly six decades of Stratocaster design.
Other premium features include a tinted maple neck with satin urethane back finish, 9.5”-radius maple (Surf Green model) or rosewood (Olympic White model) fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, three Texas Special Single-Coil Strat® pickups with five-way switching, aged white control knobs (master volume and “no load” tone control), and two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with vintage-style bent steel saddles and high-mass block. Includes case.
