The All-New Elite Stratocaster

Fender's 2016 American Elite Series has reinvented the Stratocaster. On the outside, it looks like the same old Strat from years gone by. But under the hood, it's an all-new beast, sporting noiseless pickups and American Elite features.

Main Features

  • American Elite Features
  • 4th Generation Noiseless Pickups
  • S-1 Switch

American Elite Series

This Stratocaster belongs to the American Elite series, and gets all the features that come with that. The neck morphs from a "C" shape at the nut to a "D" shape at the all-new neck heel, which has been updated to make playing higher on the neck easier. This makes for a guitar that is incredibly comfortable and enjoyable to play.

4th Generation Noiseless Pickups

Fender has re-invented the pickup with their 4th-gen noiseless pickups for the American Elite series. These manage to retain Fender's classic sound and timeless tone, while keeping up with innovations like noise-free performance. The new pickups offer shimmering and clear cleans, or full-bodied and massive overdriven tones.

S-1 Switch

The volume knob has a secret weapon hidden on top- the S-1 Switch. If those new pickups don't give you enough tonal variation, the S-1 switch will activate a series of parallel wiring options that provide even more tones for you.

For an all new and reinvented Strat playing experience, order your American Elite Series Stratocaster from Yandas today!
