Overview

Fender's Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster tears the place down with extra-scorching Strat sound and style. Its three Texas Special single-coil pickups are wired for supercharged tonal versatility, with a special V6 rotary switch (disguised as the middle tone knob) that delivers six distinct onboard preamp tone settings from wiry single-coil to searing lead. The S-1 switch built into the volume knob bypasses the preamp completely for pure Strat tone.

Other features include a tinted maple neck with "modern C" profile and large '70s-style headstock, 9.5"-radius maple or rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, five-way pickup switch, four-ply aged white pearloid pickguard, three aged white control knobs (master volume/S-1, V6, master tone), and vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge.

Includes gig bag.

    Comments about Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I purchased a candy apple red deluxe roadhouse, sight unseen and took a chance. I cannot believe what I got for the price I paid. This guitar is absolutely killer and gorgeous. I've had many axes, and this is just as nice as my top end guitars which I've paid WAY more for. It rivals many USA Fender models that are three times the price. The goodies that come on this guitar are amazing and I don't need to change anything out. It is very solid player,...and my paintjob/coating,.. Absolutely FLAWLESS and breathtaking. I cannot believe the quality coming out of Mexico these days! No need for an overpriced USA strat with this baby! This sucker growls. It also has a swiss-army knife variety of tones with the switch! Did I mention this also has a preamp built in?!!!!

    This also came with a decent fender gigbag, which is not bad, but this guitar really deserves a hardshell home. It is a must for this beauty.

    I do have to put in two very small complaints in. The backplate had one screw that didn't go in dead center to the hole and is less than 1/16 off. Not a big deal, but with all the attention to detail and the thing being flawless in every other way, this is the easiest thing not to screw up on.
    Also, I about gasped when I opened it because it had what looked like silver paint on the bottom. It easily came off with my fingernail though and had absolutely no affect on the guitar. Just scared me for a minute. IMO, these things should've been caught in inspection.

    Other than that...this thing is still a solid 5 out of 5 and an AMAZING value. It is now to the point, that I think you're better off getting the highest quality model of the Mexican strats before buying a low to medium priced USA.

    Also, maybe I got lucky, but my setup was perfect right out of the box.

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      Originally, I wanted a retro-light green colored Strat, but I settled on the Sonic Blue version. The vintage white version was more yellow looking. When I took the guitar out of the box, it looked like the green that I wanted. Depending on the lighting conditions, the guitar could look light green or light blue; either way, I love it!

        Comments about Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        All the guitars in the show room had the satin finish neck. I traded in my old Squire which had the lacquer finish which I prefer. That guitar was a 1992 model and the finish was still intact and I mean I beat that guitar to death. No chips in the paint or neck. I dig durability! I saw that this one had the lacquer and had to order it sight unseen which I hated to do. Really pleased with it. I got the candy apple red with maple. The pearloid pick guard really sets it apart. And it comes with custom shop pups! The guys at Guitar Center North Charlotte are a first class crew. I must have spent 4 hours playing stratocasters and telecasters before I finally decided that nothing they had in the show room was for me. They processed the order right there in the store and had it shipped to my home. Really a seamless process.

        This guitar does it all! Strat sounds galore. Using the preamp, it gets very p-90 ish, almost humbuckers like tones. All hardware seems very nice and dependable! The Candy Apple Red is just beautiful. I would recommend this guitar to everyone, who just wants a little more oomph out of their strat.

        A Tone Freaks Dream!!!

        By Matthew J Kane Jr

        from White Mountains, AZ

        Comments about Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        Reluctantly picked this up after playing a 25th Anniversary for over 12 years and countless searching for something new and I must say I was in no way disappointed. Came perfectly set up and played like a dream right out of the box. I play this through a Mustang III amp and I get countless Incredible tones!!! The Texas Specials are in my opinion one of the best pickups Fender makes and this guitar shows their limitless capabilities. Great tones for everything from Blues to Classic Rock to Country and even a bit of Thrash/Punk. I am going to play this for years to come!!!

        I just tried this out at GC today, and I was just blown away. This thing just sang so sweetly. I had a lot of fun jamming away on this. The tone was perfect. Hopefully soon I will buy this beauty. And hopefully I want the sunburst.

        First Strat - It's a Keeper

        By Joseph Langiu

        from VA

        Comments about Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        I've owned a large amount of various guitars since I started playing in 2003. I've usually stuck to the mid-high level as far as pricing and "quality" goes. Recently I decided that I wanted to try out a strat. I have never owned or really played one up until this point. I did a little bit of research due to the overwhelming amount of options. Where are the guitars made.....what type of neck....what pickup configuration...etc. Much more so than any of the other guitars I've purchased in the past. I ended up choosing this strat for a few reasons. First....other reviews seemed to be shining as far as overall quality goes. Personally...I was not concerned that this is a MIM Fender. Second...the looks. I loved the available color combinations and oversized headstock. Third...the options. The availability of the S1 built in preamp is a great thing to have and provides access to some new tones at the press of a button and turn of a dial. I have been using this guitar off and on at practices and even did a recording with it. The unmistakable attack that a strat has is awesome. Great first strat for me and should be for many others. Highly recommended. NOTE: Pay attention to the description of the strat you are ordering. Guitar Center has two Roadhouse models and both are listed as the same name. If you do not pay attention you could order the non-preamp boosted version. Joe

        A Very Versatile Strat

        By Lawrence Breiden

        from Lansdsale, PA

        Comments about Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        This is the new 2013 version of the Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Strat. There are now both maple and rosewood options for the fretboard. The pickguard (and rear tem cover)is now pearloid and all plastic parts are "aged". The Texas Special pickups remain standard. I have the 3 tone sunburst with rosewood. Looks sweet! But perhaps the biggest change is the onboard preamp (with a 9 volt battery) with six different frequency boosting presets taking your tone from "wiry" to "thick" (Fender's description, not mine) that are controlled by the rotary middle knob (formerly the neck pickup tone control). The volume knob features an S-1 switch for bypassing the preamp, and the rear tone knob (formerly the middle pickup tone knob) acts as a master tone control for all three pickups. There is a noticeable volume drop when the preamp is bypassed. Also, 22 frets...an oddity for a Fender from Mexico. The large 70's style headstock is a nice touch and the lightly tinted poly finished neck has the comfortable Fender Modern C shape. The Texas Specials are more punchy and midrangy than typical "vintage" sounding Strat pickups due to being overwound. For some folks this might not be a good thing. So, let's see, a five position pickup selector switch, with six different voicings, and a preamp bypass. Hmmmm...that's 35 tones out of one guitar! Well, not quite. On some settings the differences are almost too subtle. But they're there if you listen closely (In a studio. On a clean amp. With no distortion. And no drummer. Or bass player.) With the 9 volt battery and active preamp this is probably not the guitar for the vintage Strat purist (you know the person I'm talking about. The guy who has the Fender Forum as his browser's home page so he can rant about how Fender hasn't made anything decent since about 1964 and can pontificate ad nauseum about the difference in tone between grounding the volume pot with a white wire versus a grey wire, yada yada...) But that guy probably ain't gonna buy anything made in Mexico anyway. All in all I'd say it's a pretty awesome guitar and for the money I think you're getting a lot of features. Looks good...plays good...and sounds great!
