Overview

The Fender American Special Stratocaster is outfitted with a gloss urethane-finished alder body, a 9.5" radius maple neck with a modern C profile, and a maple fingerboard fitted with 22 jumbo frets. A trio of Texas Special single-coil pickups give you lots of gain and tones galore while the Fender Greasebucket tone circuits rolls off the highs without adding bass. Other details on the electric guitar include a vintage-style synchronized tremolo, chrome hardware, and a large '70s-style headstock and Fender decal. The American Special Stratocaster comes with a polishing cloth and a gig bag.

Great Sound!

By Juan Carlos

from Campbell, CA

The Texas Special pickups sound amazing - they are warm and powerful. I like my Standard Strat, but I love this American Special!

great guitar

By Paul

from eureka, mo.

I have two 1988 strats this American special with maple neck put to rest any worries about the quality of the new strats. One of my 88 strats has the E4 neck and I like the Specials neck better. The Texas specials are so good that I'm consiering chaning my 88's to texas specials.
