Product Description

The Fender American Select Stratocaster Electric Guitar is the sonic embodiment of tone-machine elegance, featuring a stunning Dark Cherry Burst gloss-lacquer finish on a sleek flame maple-top body. The Select Strat’s modern C shaped flame maple neck has a comfortable contoured heel, Bi-Flex truss rod system for rock-solid stability, a satin lacquer back finish and rear-headstock ‘Fender American Select’ medallion.

The smooth-playing compound radius flame maple fretboard (9.5-14 in.) has 22 medium jumbo frets, stylish black pearloid position inlays and gloss lacquer finish. Pure and singing signature sound comes from new Fender American Select Stratocaster single-coil neck, middle and bridge pickups with five-way switching and a no-load tone control that delivers the natural uncolored sound of the bridge pickup when dimed.

Great guitar. A new Strat Concept.
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I would say is has "Custom Shop" quality standards. Fender is giving big bang for the bucks on this unit.
General
Your general opinion of this product.
Fantastic guitar for the price. I could not tell the difference within this model and a more expensive custom shop. It definitely fits my definition of a "Magic Strat". I've been performing regularly in Classic Rock gigs, and I think the sound of this axe is inspiring. It actually enhances my playing experience. The only thing I would change is the case. I love the light weight case of my American Deluxe. In the promotional video on the Fender Web Site, they originally showed this guitar in a light weight case ("TSA lock approved"). Further advertisement correctly stated that the guitar comes with a tweed style case. The tweed case looks nice but is really heavy. Since this is now my main axe, I "borrowed" the case from my Deluxe strat.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The pick ups are unbelievably sweet. I usually use a humbucker in the bridge, but this guitar sound so sweet I don't want to mess with it. The only thing to mention is that, unlike the American Deluxe, these are true single coils, so expect some minor hum (which I don't care, but for some players this could be and issue). The hum completely cancels out when using the "in between" pick-ups switch position.(i.e. neck and middle activated at the same time).
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Drop dead gorgeous. (Beauty is in the eye of the beholder). This guitar is not as contoured as most strats. The reason being, it has a thin layer of select maple wood on top of the traditional alder body. This maple layer constitutes the "face" of the guitar. Then, the paint is somehow transparent, so that the maple figure/grain shows through the paint. To me is visually astonishing but it also contributes to the bright and snappy overall sound of the guitar.
