The American Special Stratocaster 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, including Texas Special™ pickups and special circuitry, modern neck profile and fingerboard radius, and more. Great sounding, great looking and feeling, and made in the United States.
Loaded with a set of Texas Special Single Coil pickups, this guitar has all the heat you’ll need out of a Strat. They sweeten up very well with a roll off of the volume.
