Product Review

This is my first American fender,I own several fenders ,but this is a step above, the way it sounds, the way it feels in my hands ,I heard someone say that they're just good Mexican fenders that's not true at all thes are great quality now don't get me wrong my Deluxe Roadhouse is a mexican-made guitar it's great quality this is two steps above it I can't put it down I heard the American specials are going away so I thought I better get one before it's too late Wise Choice wish I'd done it 10 years ago

Better Than What I Expected

Product Review

This Guitar is all Strat. The Texas Specials sound awesome. It feels great, and the finish is almost perfect. Upon close inspection, I found only one small flaw in the paint. The set-up was pretty good right out of the box. The neck feels amazing. I was on the fence for a few days about buying a Surf Pearl Strat with a matching headstock. I was worried that the paint might look dull or ugly. I couldn't have been more wrong. After ordering, I received the guitar within a couple of days. Anyone thinking about buying this Strat should do it! I'm glad I did!

The Texas Special pickups sound great!

Product Review

This is the first time I have ever bought a new, factory fresh guitar . And on top of that, it was the first time of ever had one shipped to me without trying it out. So I was a little bit ahead apprehensive. The guitar arrived in perfect condition , and I was very pleased at the beautiful finish. The action was near perfect, and the Texas Special pickups sound great. I am very pleased with my purchase.

AMS customer service

Product Review

Great customer service. Guitar went up 100.00 2 days before 4 payment option. Went through their price match got it for 999.00. Arrived a day early. When Fed x handed me the box the fender box inside was very unstable. It had no packing at all around the fender box. I nervously opened the box to find it in good shape. However the action is so high it is almost un-playable. Whether it came from Fender that way or got knocked around in shipping I can't say. It's a beautiful guitar and after I go pay for a good set up I can tell you more accurately about the guitar. The volume doesn't come on till about 3.5 and a soft case.USA for a grand??

Great MADE IN USA Strat

Product Review

This is simple a really good guitar and a great deal for the price. As of the new fender line up, this is the ONLY US made strat under 1K. Fit and Finish is great, Neck feel is great. The PU are nice but a little bright. Not keen on the Volume pot. 0-3 no sound 4-8 max no 9 or 10 not a big problem.. but its the first thing I noticed and my only complaint. Great buy, If I could of gotten the gold I would of but waited to long so I go the black. Such a good deal for a US fender I will also get the gold Tele, you will not get another US tele for under 1k

Beautiful guitar

Product Review

The gold finish on this guitar is gorgeous. Love the jumbo frets and C modern neck shape, it’s my favorite neck on the strats, that’s why I love the American Special. Love the natural wood feel of the neck instead of it being finished like past Special models. Pickups are ok. If you want the true strat sound you’ll love it. But I prefer less bright tone so I upgraded the pickups to EMG S3 and S4.

Best Strat I’ve Tried!

Product Review

I can’t resist when I saw the color and as a bonus it has a 70’s headstock and matching color with the body. The pearl finish is amazing, a lot better than what you see in the picture. The neck feels great, I have to lower the string height a little bit and plays like a dream. I’m more of a PRS/Gibson style nut This guitar really blows me away. Can’t put it down once I started playing. Just wish it came with a hard case or a deluxe gig bag.
