An American Strat at an Amazing Price!

Fender's American Special Stratocaster solidbody electric guitar gives you iconic Strat tone at a price that's nearly unheard of for a US-made Fender. It all starts with an alder body for classic Strat spank, and it's all wrapped up in a great-looking gloss urethane finish. The Fender trademark maple neck feels great with its Modern C profile, and jumbo frets make for fast and precise fretwork. A pair of Texas Special single-coils serves up spanky, chiming tone, with an Atomic Humbucker for aggressive modern tone. You're going to love this Fender American Special Stratocaster.

American-made quality at an unbeatable price

Fender's American Special Series exists to do one thing: give you access to genuine US-made Fenders at unbeatable prices. The American Special Stratocaster gives you a great selection of cool Strat features, including a supremely playable maple neck/fingerboard with jumbo frets, two Texas Special single-coils and an Atomic Humbucker, Fender's innovative Greasebucket tone control, a vintage-style synchronized tremolo, and a large '70s-style headstock. And it's made right here in the USA in Fender's state-of-the-art Corona, California, factory.

Cut through the mix

You're sure to cut through the mix, thanks to a pair of Fender's Texas Special single-coils plus an Atomic Humbucker. Used in any one of the five possible switch positions, the pickups give you classic Fender tones plus the added intensity you can only get from a hot humbucker in the bridge position. From glassy cleans to roaring overdrive, there's a wide sonic range to explore with the American Special Stratocaster.

Greasebucket tone control rolls off highs without affecting volume

Fender has fitted the American Special Stratocaster with their Greasebucket tone control, which rolls off highs without adding bass or affecting your volume. This is seriously cool, because it gives you explicit control over your tone onstage without your having to compensate for volume loss. It makes the American Special Strat a serious tone machine.
