This brand new Fender Deluxe Stratocaster HSS in Candy Apple Red weighs 7 lbs 1 oz and comes with its original gig bag. The Deluxe Strat HSS is Made in Mexico and is loaded with player-friendly specs. The HSS pickup configuration provides maximum versatility and allows this guitar to run the gamut from screaming high gain to classic Fender Single Coil, all the while free from 60 cycle hum.
Candy Apple Red is a timeless Fender Finish from the 1960s. This beautiful shade of red is made even cooler by adding some fine metallic flake. This gives the finish a metallic automotive look. The body is made from Alder which helps this electric guitar weigh in at The Mint Green Pickguard adds to the look and the un-tinted maple neck looks fantastic too! Plus, the Big Headstock is always appreciated!
The neck is ultra player-friendly from its profile to the fingerboard radius, this guitar is set to shred! 22 Narrow Tall Frets give us more than enough surface to execute big bends and vibrato while the 12" fingerboard radius means we don't have to work any harder than necessary. A Satin Urethane Finish on the back of the Maple neck keeps things smooth, dry, fast, and never sticky. Locking tuners make changing strings fast and easy. Like I said, Ultra-Player-Friendly!
The Twin Head Vintage Humbucker can sound warm, rich, and full while clean but when pushed, this bridge humbucker comes alive! Great for heavy riffing or searing leads, this is a great pickup across styles. 2 Vintage Noiseless Single Coil Pickups give us that class Fender Sound but minus the 60 cycle hum. While the Noiseless pickups are far from "VIntage Spec" they have served the Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck Signature Strats quite well for nearing the last 2 decades! A master volume, two tone controls, and a 5-way pickup selector switch cover the rest of the details.
