The Fender American Special Stratocaster electric guitar ships free from Sam Ash. For a great low price it has the great sound of the Texas Blues and all the great features that make the Stratocaster the favorite of all time.

The Fender® American Special Stratocaster® is a rare bargain. For a remarkably low price, you get the same Texas Special Pickups that grace the coveted Stevie Ray Vaughan Strat, the Mark Knopfler Strat, and the discontinued but beloved Bonnie Raitt Strat. You get the same full throated deep voiced growl on the low notes and the rich clear tones on your highs that make those instruments so desirable and make their sounds so memorable. Coupled with the great Greasebucket Tone Circuit that rolls of f the highs without muddying the bass, the three Texas Special give you the best of classic Stratocaster tone. The Comfort Contour body is alder, like most of the great classic Strats, and the gorgeous finish is satin urethane with a 3-ply parchment pickguard.

Other great features of the Fender American Special Stratocaster include:

•  Modern “C”-shape maple neck with satin urethane finish makes it easier to slide your hand along the neck.
•  The 9-1/2” -radius maple fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets for easy string bending.
•  Standard cast sealed tuners are permanently lubricated.
•  Vintage Style Synchronized Tremolo

The American Special Stratocaster comes complete with a Fender Deluxe Gig Bag that lets you carry your guitar like a back pack and has plenty of room for your accessories, so you never have to (or want to) leave your guitar behind.

At this price, for a fine, American made classic instrument with the sound everybody wants, the only mistake you can make is to pass this up.

Comments about Fender American Special Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

Finish was imppecable when I received it. Action was great out of the box but may have a pro setup done anyway to be sure I got the best setup. Love the Jumbo Frets. I compared it to my other strat and telecaster (both Medium Jumbo). and while only slightly wider at the nut it's more comfortable for playing any chords near the nut end without getting muffled notes from your fingers muting the adjacent string when playing chords. Also strings bend easily on this neck and make for fast playing.
I got the Candy Apple Red as I've alrady have a sunburst tele and wanted something to contrast. Played it through my fender hot rod deluxe and can get that Dire Straights "sultans of swing" tone easily. Jumbo Frets may not be for everyones liking but I love the feel of it for me.
The larger 70's headstock helps with the sustain and the satin urethane neck makes the fingers fly over the frets.
