Fender American Special Stratocaster Electric Guitar

Top Fender Quality for Guitarists of All Levels

The American Special Stratocaster by Fender compiles all of Fender's great qualities and contemporary features and brings them to you at an affordable price. This guitar has a glossy urethane finish that comes in a variety of colors to suit your personal aesthetic, and other fine additions of attention to detail that will leave you, the guitarist, satisfied with your instrument. These features include a satin finished neck for ultimate performance, a vintage style tremolo, Texas Special pickups, and a Greasebucket Tone circuit.

Main Features

  • Greasebucket tone circuit
  • Modern neck
  • Texas Special pickups

Greasebucket Tone Circuit

The application of tone knobs has become somewhat of a lost art in today's music world. With so many guitars to choose from and amps and effects to plug them into, the tone knob has inevitably become neglected. The Fender Greasebucket circuit will improve your experience with using a tone knob because it was designed to cut treble frequencies as you roll it back, rather than taking it away in addition to adding bass. This gives you a wider palette of sounds you can use with just the guitar, all of which being tasteful.

Modern Neck

Though this guitar takes off of a lot of vintage designs, there were a few refinements made to improve the reliability and tailor to the needs of guitarists in the now. The neck, in particular, is one of those features. It has a modern designed C shape profile for ultimate comfort, and the finish used is satin so you can move your hand around freely and easily, and it also gives the neck a more natural look.

Texas Special Pickups

The Texas Special pickups covers all of your basic frequencies by giving them what we all want. The components used allow you to tighten up your bass, focus on your mid range, and give you crystal clear highs. This was achieved by the use of careful designing and over-winding the pickups for big sounding Texas-blues tones.

The American Special Strat is extraordinarily authentic and comes at a surprisingly affordable price! Definitely consider ordering one for yourself!
