The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar is loaded with extras that go far beyond the standard Strat.  The select alder body is equipped with two new N3 Noiseless pickups that deliver the classic Stratocaster tones minus the single-coil hum, while the DH-1 Atomic humbucking bridge pickup deliver a beefy tone for scorching lead playing. The newly reconfigured S-1 switching offers even more tonal options. Featuring a “passing lane” switch instantly routes your signal from any pickup position to the bridge position with powerful humbucker tone at your fingertips.

The American Deluxe Strat HSS has a compound radius fretboard that allows clean, effortless string bending anywhere along the neck, without the worry of your notes “fretting out” as you go into the upper registers. The fingerboard radius becomes more curved as you move closer to the nut, allowing for easier chord voicings.

Other features of the American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS include staggered locking tuners, LSR roller nut, and a two-point synchronized American Deluxe tremolo bridge with pop-in arm. The body also features a contoured neck heel for easier upper-fret access. The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS includes a hardshell case, cable, strap and strap locks.

The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS provides power and tone for any performance situation. You will be thrilled with the endless tonal possibilities of this guitar.

      the humbucker pickup really cranks out the distortion and the middle and neck pickups have that great fender tone.

        It's a very good guitar. I play many kind of music so it's the best guitar for me. The only disadvantage is that I can't half the humbacker so sometimes I miss the original single-coil sound.
