    Fender American Special Stratocaster (Maple, with Gig Bag) Product Description

    For over five decades, guitarists looking to move up to the next level have looked to the American Fender Stratocaster. The USA Strat has been in a class of its own, but for many musicians, the price tag has been just a bit too high. Now, though, with the release of the Fender American Special series, guitarists are able to get a US-built Stratocaster for less than ever before.

    The American Special Stratocaster has a series of accoutrements making it a great guitar in its own right, beyond the performance and build quality that come with made-in-the-USA Strats. For one, the American Special has a full set of 3 Texas Special Strat pickups, for a little more heat than your average Stratocaster. It's also got Greasebucket tone circuits, so if you want to roll off high frequencies from your tone you won't boost the bass accidentally - a common frustration for single-coil players. The American Special Strat also has a vintage-style two-point vibrato with bent steel sides for great note bends, 22 jumbo frets, and a large 70's-style headstock. This guitar's alder body has a gloss urethane finish, and makes great use of it.

    The Fender American Special Stratocaster makes the legendary guitar an attainable goal for more guitarists than ever.
