Product Description

Designed for the 21st-century guitarist, the American Elite Stratocaster has Fender’s timeless style but under the hood the features push the envelope. With over a dozen new innovations, each guitar is a true performer with eye-catching style, exceptional feel and versatile sound from the very first moment you plug it in and play.

Fender American Elite Strat Maple Neck Guitar Features
  • New fourth generation Noiseless pickups
  • Compound profile neck, ideal for all playing styles
  • A modern “C”-shape at the nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D”
  • Smooth two-point modern tremolo
  • Includes a redesigned Elite Molded Case with TSA locks 
Featured on all American Elite instruments, the new fourth generation Noiseless pickups are only available in this series, and represent a quantum leap in pickup design. Combining vintage-style sound with effectively noise-free performance, these are the pinnacle of Fender’s noiseless pickup designs, offering pristine cleans and fat, overdriven tones that scream with pure rock ‘n’ roll power. Designed for fast playing and effortless position changes, the compound profile neck is ideal for all playing styles. A modern “C”-shape at the nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of comfortable support for fret hand antics. New locking short-post tuning machines provide increased break angle at the bone nut for buzz-free performance while the smooth two-point modern tremolo adds emotive touches to your performance without sacrificing your tuning.

Fender is renowned for head-turning style, and this guitar is no different—from the redesigned sleek back and forearm contours that hug the player’s body for an enhanced playing experience to the black chrome headstock logo and large pearloid fret markers this instrument will dazzle the audience with elegant style. The American Elite Stratocaster is a bold new guitar for the brave new guitarist who is setting out to cross uncharted musical terrain. Includes a redesigned Elite Molded Case with TSA locks to provide increased protection for your cherished instrument.

A Picture May Be Worth A Thousand Words But..

Product Review

A picture may be worth 1000 words but a song is worth a thousand more, especially when played on this more than worthy guitar! This instrument has all you could want and then some. Bells, whistles, purity of tone, and more options than a stock broker on the hustle. From the buzz free pickups to the vintage sound, you are going to love this guitar. Classic sass meets modern mass. The name suits it, Elite. From the moment you pick this guitar up, you're part of the history, and the promise of where the brand is going. Good places, good places. I couldn't be more pleased to add this beauty to the collection, it's a great player, and a definite stayer. Love it! If you're on the fence on this one? Climb down with a quickness, and let the rocks Gods open the gates for you friend, your legacy will thank you.
