The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster Ash has the distinctive grain pattern and spanking tone of an ash body, with all the cool specs of the American Deluxe Stratocaster. The compound radius fingerboard allows effortless string bending anywhere along the neck. N3 Noiseless pickups provide improved Stratocaster tones for sparkling bell-like chime with no hum, and reconfigured S-1 switching offers even more 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.

Comments about Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster Ash Electric Guitar:
I find that the N3 pickups sound great. Mixed reviews about them, but I think it depends on how they are set up. Raising and lowering will make a difference and result in the tone you are looking for. This is a great sounding strat. Don't use the S1 options much as I prefer the classic strat tones but it nice to have this option to explore. The neck feels great and fits my hands well. I really like the way this guitar looks with the tobacco sunburst and maple neck. Wish the pick guard was more the color of the pick up covers and knobs instead of the greenish tint but not a big distraction. It did not require much set up right out of the box. A couple of small adjustments and everything was good to go. This strat costs more than some american's but has features that are upscale and it compares with my custom shop strats in sound, finish and feel.
