The new American Series Strat features several simple refinements of Fender's timeless design. After listening to what guitarists really love in a Strat, their new series is even more playable, with better tone than ever before. From the hand-rolled fingerboard edges to the custom staggered pole pieces on its Alnico 5 single-coil pickups, highly detailed fret & nut treatment, and DeltaTone system, the idea is that excellence lies in these details. Features include a non-veneered alder body (or ash, on the natural finish model), 5-way pickup switching and Micro-Tilt neck adjustment. Includes hardshell case, cable, strap, straplocks, polishing cloth, and adjustment wrenches.
