The American Special Stratocaster HSS puts U.S-made Fender quality into the hands of players at any level. For the guitarist who wants a combination of timeless Fender style and contemporary features, this guitar delivers traditional Strat® design with some extra elements for modern tone and performance.
As a pre-loved Modified strat, the Atomic bridge humbucking pickup has been replaced with a Gnarly single coil pickup, with the Original Texas Special Neck and middle pickups remaining.
It has a great modern neck profile and 9.5 fingerboard radius with slick jumbo frets for anyone who loves a smooth bend. The original black pickguard has been swapped for a stunning pearloid pickguard.
The most interesting part of this unique blend of elements is the upgraded switching. Altering from a classic 5-way pickup configuration to a David Gilmour style 7-way switch, the extra mini toggle (located above the neck tone knob) switches on the neck pickup, giving an additional 2 switching options:
- Neck & bridge pickups together
- All 3 pickups together.
A great sounding, versatile, great looking and feeling guitar - made in the USA.
