Fender instruments have always been about great simplicity and convenient modularity—no other guitars are easier to personalize with new parts and hot-rodded features into truly individual declarations. The remarkable new American Deluxe Strat® Plus HSS guitar is the next step in the evolution of that great tradition, giving you three humbucking pickup-equipped Stratocaster guitars in one with an innovative design featuring easily interchangeable “personality cards” that instantly give you a wealth of versatile pickup and circuitry configurations.
One card comes in the guitar and delivers standard Stratocaster HSS pickup wiring; two extra personality cards are included and let you “re-wire” the guitar with specialized pickup and circuitry modifications quickly and easily. Simply pop the color-coded cards in and out of the easy-access compartment in the back, and you’ve just modded your Strat in record time. Further, the American Deluxe Strat Plus HSS features fully solder-less electronics that literally make other great circuit mods a snap.
Other fine features include a maple neck with comfortable “modern C” profile and satin finish, compound-radius rosewood fingerboard (9.5”-14”) with 22 medium jumbo frets, single-coil N3 Noiseless™ Strat neck and middle pickups, a Twin Head humbucking bridge pickup and five-way switching. The guitar also has a three-ply mint green pickguard and aged white control knobs, two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with bent steel saddles, Micro-Tilt™ neck adjustment mechanism, staggered deluxe locking tuners and nickel-chrome hardware. Accessories include a convenient carrying case for the two extra personality cards, hard-shell case, guitar strap, cable and polishing cloth. Comes in Mystic Black and Mystic Three-color Sunburst gloss finishes.
