Instrument Categories: , , ,

The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster was built between 1998 and 2016, and offered improved hardware – notably a two point trem, locking tuners and SCN pickups – and aesthetic upgrades like Abalone position markers.

This American Deluxe Stratocaster dates to 2009 and was built at the Fender plant in Corona, California. It is in very clean, original condition and has a really nice Sienna sunburst.

The body is ash with vintage style, slim comfortable contours. The neck block is rounded slightly on the treble corner to allow easier access to the upper frets, and the neck plate is rounded to match. The neck is bright white maple with abalone position markers and medium-jumbo frets.

The three-layer plastic pickguard and backplate have a ‘vintage’ slight minty green tint that pairs well with the sunburst tones. The pickups are orignal – at this point, are SCN (Samarium Cobalt Noisless) models coupled with the S-1 switch circuitry, involving a pushbutton switch hidden in the top of the volume control.

The bridge is an advanced version of the original Stratocaster design, using a pair of notched posts rather than six screws, and the bridge plate has bevelled cups to accurately locate it and allow low-friction movement. The steel saddles are solid and provide good improvement in tonal clarity and sustain. The bridge is paired with staggered post, locking tuners designed by Schaller.

I have to say that the Fender guitars of this period are some of my favourites. There are a lot of subjective, or objectively specific reasons for this. The neck profiles fit my hands well, the larger frets provide a solid feel with clearer articulation, the bridge works well, the saddles are comfortable for palm muting, and locking tuners are so easy to deal with.

The original hard shell case is included.
