What makes the Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster deluxe?
The American Deluxe also addresses certain tremolo bridge concerns. Many players, including Eric Clapton. often put a wedge in to lock the bridge in position in the traditional Stratocaster tremolo bridge for tuning stability. The American Deluxe Stratocaster gives you this option by use of locking tuners and a two-point synchronized American Deluxe tremolo bridge with pop-in bar. This maintains intonation while letting players lean on the whammy bar to their hearts' content.
Of course the American Deluxe Stratocaster is beautiful too! It has all the fine craftsmanship and finish that have made Fender the oldest and most respected makers of solid body electric guitars. The body is alder or ash with a urethane finish, and has 4-ply brown shell or 3-ply mint green pickguard (depending on the body color), and aged white control knobs complete the classic look.
The American Deluxe Series includes four variations:
The American Deluxe Strat HSS has the same features as the American Deluxe
Stratocaster, but also includes Fender Atomic Humbucking pickup in the bridge position for heavier
tones and an LSR Roller Nut that allows the strings to glide smoothly across the nut.
