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.

I purchased this guitar in February and I love it. Prior to that purchase I bought a Fender Telecaster Deluxe and loved it so I thought I would give the Stratocaster a try. I am very pleased with both instruments. Jose Blanco at Guitar Center in Sacramento was my sales professional. He special ordered the Stratocaster and kept me informed of when I could expect the guitar. During both sales transactional Mr. Blanco was knowledgable and willing to work with me during the sale and on getting the guitar set up. Guitar Center Rocks!
