Overview

Imagine being able to rewire your Stratocaster without a soldering iron. The American Deluxe Stratocaster Plus HSS Electric Guitar comes with an amazing system and 3 programming cards that are easy to swap. There's nothing digital about it. Each card contains analog circuitry packed with 60 years of Fender experience in designing electric guitars. The switches on the cards affect the tone settings, giving you new sonic control in a flash. All this, without sacrificing anything. This is a beautiful Stratocaster in every way.

Fender instruments have always been about great simplicity and convenient modularity-no other guitars are easier to personalize with new parts and hot-rodded features into truly individual declarations. The remarkable new American Deluxe Strat Plus HSS is the next step in the evolution of that great tradition, giving you three humbucking pickup-equipped Stratocaster guitars in one with an innovative design featuring easily interchangeable "personality cards" that instantly give you a wealth of versatile pickup and circuitry configurations.

One card comes in the guitar and delivers standard Stratocaster HSS pickup wiring; two extra personality cards are included and let you "re-wire" the guitar with specialized pickup and circuitry modifications quickly and easily. Simply pop the color-coded cards in and out of the easy-access compartment in the back, and you've just modded your Strat in record time. Further, the American Deluxe Strat Plus HSS features fully solder-less electronics that literally make other great circuit mods a snap.

Other fine features include a maple neck with comfortable "modern C" profile and satin finish, compound-radius rosewood fingerboard (9.5"-14") with 22 medium jumbo frets, singlecoil N3 Noiseless Strat neck and middle pickups, a Twin Head humbucking bridge pickup and five-way switching. The guitar also has a three-ply mint green pickguard and aged white control knobs, two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with bent steel saddles, Micro-Tilt neck adjustment mechanism, staggered deluxe locking tuners and nickel-chrome hardware. Accessories include a convenient carrying case for the two extra personality cards, hard-shell case, guitar strap, cable and polishing cloth.

    Comments about Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster Plus HSS Electric Guitar:

    This is such a great guitar. I've owned top end les Paul's, metal guitars like Jackson's and other strays. I was reading about this guitar for awhile and when I got the chance to pick one up it was hard to put down. The tones are just so crisp and the bridge position humbucker is just awesome. I haven't really played around with the personality cards yet because I'm still have so much fun with just the cutter card. I currently playing this through a line 6 valve tube amp that a picked up and it can get some real grit to it.

      Comments about Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster Plus HSS Electric Guitar:

      I had looked at this guitar over a long period while looking for my first real Stratocaster. The only thing keeping me from making my choice from the start was the card system. I was worried about how non traditional and gimmicky it seemed. The price dropped on it and I was offered the choice of having a deluxe guitar for the price of a standard so I let go of my fear of the gimmick and went for it. Best choice I could have made! It feels and plays amazing. The sound and versatility are top notch. The N3s are great as well, don't let people convince you otherwise. The card system is not a gimmick. It's a system I now wish many guitars had. I'm not sure I'll ever feel the need to buy another guitar because this one will do literally anything. If you're interested in this guitar, do yourself a favor and get it. I haven't bonded with a guitar so deeply since I got my first "real" guitar in my early days. It feels good to be so excited about a guitar again. And to close this review, I'd like to mention that the mystic black finish is very beautiful. The metallic is subtle but heavy and the flecks are almost a blue color rather than just glitter. It reminds me of a star covered sky.

        Comments about Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster Plus HSS Electric Guitar:

        I'm a working musician and I'm currently attending Berklee College of Music. I have to be able to play every genre of music and so I decided to go with this model of strat. (Before I had a Epiphone Sheraton 2) This guitar is exactly what you should buy if you are a working guitarist of any style of music. I have played Latin tunes, heavy blues, funk, rock, and jazz with this guitar and it can do it all VERY well. However, finding the right tone for these styles can take time if you are unfamiliar or new to a strat. The bottom line is...you should buy this instrument.

        Great guitar

        By richard

        from Las Vegas, nv

        Comments about Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster Plus HSS Electric Guitar:

        I just purchased this guitar a week ago after playing it in the store with many other stratocasters, many at a lot higher prices. I decided to take the chance of buying a new technology instrument and I am glad I did. The ability to switch out the cards is a great improvement. I mainly use the "cutter" personality card because I like the ability to have one control knob for treble and one for bass for any of the positions on all five of the pickup selections. This feature is my favorite. The guitars playability is of the highest quality and just as good or better than more expensive models I tried. I wood highly recommend this guitar, especially for the price.
