Unbelieveable!

By Sean

Comments about Fender American Deluxe Strat V-Neck Electric Guitar:

I just bought this guitar 2 days ago, and I've not been able to put it down. I bought the sunburst with maple fretboard, and wow. It comes kind of vintage tinted and semi glossy neck, which just makes for totally smooth playing. And you can dive bomb as much as you want with their awesome tremolo without fear of jerking out of tune thanks to the Schaller locking tuners. Not only that but you can honestly restring this guitar in 5 minutes flat! No lie. It doesn't come equipped with the LSR roller nut like the previous models, but I never really liked them anyways. The hand rolled edges make the neck one of the smoothest guitars I've played, and when you think you've run out of tones, there's the S-1 switching system to widen a whole new array of sounds for you to jam with. I bought this along with a Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue and maaaaan, it kicks those bluesy John Mayer like riffs with ease. The SCN pickups are totally silent. So even if you're running through an old vintage amp, these babies won't hiss or buzz a single bit. This really is just an amazing guitar, go ahead and spend the few extra bucks for the deluxe, its easily well worth it. Its one of the best decisions I've made musically. Its helped define my tone beyond description. GREAT GUITAR!

If i could do it i would rate it 10 stars

By Thomas Rodberg

from New York City

Comments about Fender American Deluxe Strat V-Neck Electric Guitar:

This guitar is the cleanest sounding, most tonal strat that they have to offer. The tone is only outmastered by the pickup selection of the SCN pickups. You will not get a better sound out of any guitar that you can buy. It immediatly became my new favorite guitar and you couldnt make me put it down for anything. I love this guitar

tone surpasses my les paul custom

By Dave Anderson

from Lakeland, florida

Comments about Fender American Deluxe Strat V-Neck Electric Guitar:

I have been playing multiple brands for many years. my first choice has always been my black beauty les paul custom with 3 pick ups. that all ended 3 months ago when I bought the strat. They both feel great and play great, but I could not beleive the sound quality difference. The strat was in its own league.It is much better on any kind of blues. Now my les paul is still beautiful, but its beautiful on its stand while I play the strat

ONLY GUITAR YOU WILL EVER NEED!

By Burninatorguitarist

from CA

Comments about Fender American Deluxe Strat V-Neck Electric Guitar:

This is the best guitar i have ever owned or played. The SCN noiseless pickups pick up no buzz even with full distortion! Very well built, the v shaped neck seems to fit perfectly in your hand. The guitar sounds best when put on the bass pickup and gives off a very warm tone. If you like more sharp tones just flip the selector switch to the bridge pickup. This is a very versatile guitar especially with the S-1 switching system. It sounds almost exactly like a Les Paul! This guitar is great for any kind of music...

Pro Player's View

By Kingfish

from Phx, AZ

Comments about Fender American Deluxe Strat V-Neck Electric Guitar:

I have been buying and playing Strats since 1971, my first being an original 1957 Sunburst baby. When I bought my American Deluxe, I opted for the Sunburst again. First let me say, this is a beautiful guitar. Aged look plastic and finish give it a real touch of class. As far as the guitar itself, it's plusses are the solid feel and excellent craftsmanship, noiseless pickups, modern bridge pieces adding sustain, and the humbucker (S 1) switching to help DRIVE your rig when you're in need of making a FIRM statement. Minuses to me are the floating tremolo which makes it hard to tie down if you want to immobilize it. If you plan on using the trem, no problem. Also, the cobalt pickups, while noiseless and great sounding in their own right, don't quite sparkle like a true single coil strat pickup. The caveat being, I possibly got spoiled using my last workhorse strat with high gain active EMG's for the previous fifteen years. Overall, a real solid piece. I would imagine as this guitar ages, it will be a real gem. I have already noticed it "settling in" and starting to roar.

My favorite guitar

By SamsDaddy

from CO

Comments about Fender American Deluxe Strat V-Neck Electric Guitar:

I have owned my V-neck strat for about 3 months now and it is the most played of all of my guitars. The feel of the neck and tone just make it perfect for me. The S-1 switching really opens up a lot of tonal variation. I love the color of the neck - it is not the typical "white-washed" look of a maple neck, it is more yellow/orange and definitely vintage looking. Sweet guitar!

The Real Deal

By StratAttack

from Damascus, OR

Comments about Fender American Deluxe Strat V-Neck Electric Guitar:

I bought this strat 3 days ago and it is simply the most beautiful crafted guitar I have ever played,inside and out. I'd been looking for a strat with a vintage look and sound but some modern features too and accidentally stumbled across this one. What really blew me away was the S-1 switching and locking tuners. I play through a 70-watt mesa boogie and when you turn on the distortion with the S-1 switching Its almost like a fuzz kind of sound. And with the locking tuners, I haven't had to tune up once, even while I've been dive bombing it with the whammy bar. All in all, if your looking for a guitar with a good clean look and sound with some AWESOME perks this is the one.

Still love it

By slickstratiwant100

from Rochester, NY

Comments about Fender American Deluxe Strat V-Neck Electric Guitar:

I am following up to my earlier review. I bought this guitar in the 2-tone sunburst and it is great. I wasn't crazy about the color at first but it just looks so vintage (yet perfect) that I it has really grown on me. By the way the picture on here does it no justice at all! The plastic is all yellowed and the neck is almost orange, it doesn't look like a typical strat. I raved about the neck and the sound previously and still love it - more so now that I have been tinkering with it for a couple months. My playing has seriously went up a couple notches since I got this beauty - I play more and because its so easy to play, better than ever. I really like the medium jumbo frets but I still find at times I get "caught" on them in slides. That is my only complaint but its just something I need to work on, not really anything wrong with the guitar. I dont know if a beginner could justify the cost but I would recommend this guitar to anyone who has owned cheap strats and is looking to move up (that is exactly what I did), you won't be dissapointed.

I am a heavy music store shopper, whereever I found a music store, I will go inside and mess around with guitars.

I rate this product overall 5.0, cuz its definitely worthed your money. It will be a great investment, enjoy!

Nothing Compares

By Tone Crazey

from Long Island

Comments about Fender American Deluxe Strat V-Neck Electric Guitar:

I own a fender stratocaster V neck and it's the best thing that I have ever purchased from guitar center. This strat is second to none. Mine has been comapared side by side to a friends Gibson Les Paul custom, he sold the Gibson and bought a Strat. This Stratocaster is far superior to it's predecessors. It has never gone even slightly out of tune, I have never had any problems with it, and everyone who has played mine wants one for themselves. It's a great guitar and well worth the cash. BUY IT , you will NOT be disappointed.
