Overview

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.

WOW what a guitar, it is nicest Strat I have ever played. Neck radius is very sweet and the new the pickups are awesome. The middle and the neck pickups are N3 noiseless represent a welcome return to the warmth and clarity of alnico magnets. The bridge pickup is humbucker which has so much power it screams loud. I instantly got hooked on the guitar and decided on the spot to buy the 3-color Sunburst Rosewood guitar from Guitar center in San Jose CA, but not before I have gotten a sweet deal needles to mention that I traded my Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe because I did not have the same pleasure playing with Gibson as I have with this Strat. To me it is an awesome guitar so much so that at the night I bought it I played for hours none stop even thought the very next morning I had to go back to work.

Out of the many strats I have tried, The american made stratocaster has failed in delivering the quality and craftsmanship for even the simplest of components, especially for the price you pay for this model. The statement in the handbook that the instrument may lose its setup during shippment/delivery is just plain rubblish. Other foreign brands/models maintain a better quality "out of the box" at a lower price. Guitar center always keeps all guitars on the racks (so they say) but of all the american made strats, it appears the mexican made ones, (especially the where the neck is concerned) had better fret edge finishing than the american ones I have inspected/tested. the one I selected still had enough fret edge overhang to cut a tree branch. This was fixable and after shaving the edges, the compound radius neck started to gain the feel of strats past. The new locking tuners on this model looked as though the tech at the assembly plant installed them finger tight (several high end models were discovered with loose tuners). Once several flaws in the setup were corrected, the guitar was restrung, action adjusted and finally I was able to check out the rest of the guitar. The Strat was plugged straight in to a Mesa Triple Rec. Yup.....There was that strat sound I was looking for! The reconfigured S-1 button added almost a humbucker sound to the neck and middle positions; very jazzy sounding. with the S-1 button off, all positions, even the 4 position (middle/bridge humbucker), had that funk/country twang I expected from the strat. The bridge position pickup (humbucker) puts this strat into overdrive when ran through the boogie's drive channels. The tremelo was set on this strat in a "floating" configuration (again a few models were set this way). I found it difficult to lower the string action, so this was readjusted to a flat (against the body) configuration. Lowering the string height gave this strat a playability I expected/known from these guitars. Again I question the setup from the factory (other brands/models take the time to setup theirs from the factory; this should be no exception, even american-made). If not for the famous sound/quality the strat is known for, any other model will do. One should not have to resort to inspect every inch of a guitar (or a few of them) of a american made strat. Other major brands and their foreign made counterparts are delivering higher quality products than this "higher-end" model. Although disappointed from this company, the newly adjusted feel/playability/sound of this guitar keeps me from rating it lower than a 3. From all the other strats (foreign and american) I have played/owned, I expect no less than the awesome quality they provided over the years. Newer models should be no different.

Fender Stradivarius Strat

By HARVEY YOUNG

from Dallas, TX

From the Orchestra Pit to the mosh pit, this axe will take you anywere you want to go, and get it done in style! The fit, finish and appointments on this guitar are the best of any electric guitar I have ever played, and I have played quite a few sweet guitars in my fourtysomthing years of playing. Locking grover tuners, the LSR roller nut, two point floating trem, Schaller strap locks factory installed, PLUS the compound radius neck, smooth as silk and stays in tune from bottom to top and just invites you to rip it up and express yourself in ways you only dreamed of on other instruments. I got the Sunset Metalic finish with rosewood fretboard and the finish is stunning. It really is almost to beautiful to carry to gigs, but I got over it. The tonsl variations avalible with the noiseless pups and S-1 switching can take you from spanky strat/tele tones to blues to boost to screaming banshi, all before you even start to use your pedals. Fender hit it out of the park on this one.

Protective film left on pick guard

By Tom Penick

from Leander, TX

I ordered my stratocaster deluxe model online and had it delivered to Guitar Center store so it wouldn't have to get left on my front porch by the delivery guy. I was a little apprehensive about buying an expensive guitar that I had never played but it all went well. The guitar was in good shape, neck perfectly straight. After playing for a week I started noticing alarming scratches on the pick guard. This turned out to just be the protective film that was left on in manufacturing. I pulled it off but of course there are remnants around all the screw heads so I will have to disassemble the guitar if I want to get it all. I think this should have been done when the guitar was built. Other than that minor glitch I am very happy with the purchase.

The guitar I have been searching for for awhile.

By Michael J Pitts

from Gainesville, Fl

I own a Peavey EVH Wolfgang special that I have had for along long time, and just recently a Schecter C-1 Hellraiser. The Wolfgang did a good job for me for years but was limited and parts started to give after 15 or so years. And the Hellraiser is an amazing guitar for the price, but the string tension and frets has me using it more as a metal rhythm machine more then soloing. Im not big on the fret set up on that guitar. I never owned a Strat till now, and after flipping threw a Les Paul Studio 2 (good guitar but string tension is a tad odd) and a used Ibanez JS 1000 that had way more problems then I could handle (Im sure the new top line JS's are great.) I landed on this. I know I landed on what I like. Tuns of tone control, Almost perfect string tension in which you can bend fairly easy on it, and yet the low E feels stable enough to butterfly pick some fast pedal base parts. Whats better is the dang thing stays in tune after some wild bends and more soulful playing also. The tones are great, you can get that snappy start sound that everyone knows. But what shocked me (since I never played a strat before this) with this one I could switch it up and still get that nice warm Santana like lead with the 4th position on the switch and messing with the tone knobs and the little button on the volume (whatever that's called.) It even shocked me more that although the bridge H pickup maybe is not the hottest pickup out their, it holds its own. I can get more pinch harmonics from anywhere to the low G to anything on the higher strings. And more so then I have gotten with any other guitar (even a tad more so then the JS 1000. Im not really sure why? but I can. They come out effortlessly. I struggle to get them on the Schecter with EMG 81 actives in it. Yet I get them on this without effort. The thing can play metal pretty dang good. And then when you flip to a nice clean lead sound. All of a sudden you get way more then you get with just a pure metal guitar that fall flat clean. Instead this machine takes you into feeling like your a whole new artist playing wonderfully toned old school blues. The guitar feels good in your lap or in a strap (not to heavy or odd balanced.) Playing chords and rhythm is great on it too. To be honest im really shocked at how well it works. The neck feels good, and can be fast enough yet still feels good just digging in. Your hands feel like they dont have to work as hard to get whats in your head. I was a tad worried about the middle pickup, as I have had trouble with hitting those with the pick in other guitars. Not so much here, It seems lower and I just never seem to hit it much. And it may not be the flashiest looking guitar around, but it plays just so well. I never felt this comfortable on a guitar. And it gives me just about any tone I want. I thought about changing the H bridge pickup, but I keep being shocked by what im getting from it so I wont. Really this guitar shocked me it a great instrument.

Amber with maple neck

By Jeff Jones

from Raleigh, NC

The guitar is solid. It has a look and feel of quality. It is easy to play. I am impressed with the tone. The Fender case is sturdy and nice looking. The order process was simple, just called GC Raleigh and the deal was made. I had a gift certificate given to me previously and Matt applied it to the purchase. The guitar arrived in about 3 days well packaged. I am totally satisfied.

Great Guitar

By Jim Oliver

from Lawrenceville, GA

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)

AT LEAST THREE GUITARS IN ONE

By Larry Herbstritt

from Coudersport, PA

I was inspired to buy this Strat Deluxe H/S/S after being at a recording session in LA with studio musician, George Doering, who was playing this guitar. I found it amusing that, when I inquired about the guitar, he didn't really know what version of Strat he was playing. It was just a guitar that was given to him and he liked it. I recently purchased my Stratocaster H/S/S Deluxe and I am the happiest I've ever been with a guitar purchase. It is very well made and I particularly love the 3 color sunburst finish, my personal preference. I have been playing it pretty hard, using the tremolo bar to excess, somewhat out of curiosity to see how well it would hold its tuning afterward. I have been very, very pleased with its ability to remain in tune even after this extreme note dropping and shaking of the bar. The S-1 switch is a fantastic option. It just fattens up a tone, making tone adjustments unnecessary or minimal on my Super Champ XD amp or when using my POD XT. The rosewood neck plays like "butter". Previously, I have been playing a 1964 Chet Atkins Gretsch 6120 double cutaway, a 1976 Les Paul Deluxe and a 1997 Fender Telecaster, all of which are very nice guitars. But this Stratocaster Deluxe is capable of creating any of the tones, with the exception of the Gretsch, of the Les Paul and Telecaster. I think the Gretsch sound is a bit more unique due to its hollow body sound and I have not duplicated its sound with this Strat. However, in addition to duplicating my Les Paul Deluxe and my Tele, there are many subtle and not so subtle tones that can be found with this Strat that can't be found with the LP or Tele. I was surprised with the warm Jazz tone this guitar produces. In short, this guitar feels like an old friend - I love it

Best buy, what a difference

By PETER BRADLEY

from Los Angeles, CA

I was playing a Squire Strat (Bullet HSS), and was a bit frustrated with some aspects of it. Tuning was a constant issue. Forget about touching the whammy bar without throwing it out of tune. Playing fast & hard cause the sound to really wash out, making me wonder if it was my playing or the guitar. Turns out in most cases it was the guitar. And the buzzing from the pickups was really annoying for a guy that mostly plays quietly or through headphones in the den (or "guitar lounge" as we call it)! After side by side comparisons in the store with a MIM Standard, American Standard, and the American Deluxe, I was sold on the American Deluxe. It has all the features and capabilities you could ever want in a guitar. All the issues I had with my Squire are gone. This Deluxe Strat is heaven. Best money I have ever spent. I no longer second guess my equipment, I know it is up to the job, whatever I want to do. That is worth a lot.

Amazing

By Don Bell

from Pittsburgh, PA

Instead of going for either the bland sound of the regular Gibson humbucking guitar or the thin sound of the Stratocaster single coil pickup, get the best of both worlds. With a flick of a switch (or several) you can go from the sound of Cream to Hendrix. When you pay for this guitar you do not just receive great tone, but amazing quality.
