CLASSIC STRAT STYLE
The Fender American Special Stratocaster electric guitar is shaped to the same instantly recognisable Strat body profile we've all come to know and love. The sleek and sophisticated curves of the body establish a snug, figure-hugging fit during performances. The slender body depth pairs with bevelled edges to remove obstacles from impeding your movement, giving you free rein to explore everything the American Special Strat has to offer.
SUPPORTIVE MAPLE NECK
Joined to the body is a supple and supportive maple neck, which is shaped to the modern "C" profile that is delightfully comfortable in the hand. The satin polyurethane neck finish prevents unwanted stickiness from slowing down your hand as you perform.
Married to the neck is a 22 jumbo fret maple fingerboard with black dot position inlays to aid in your navigation. The 9.5-inch radius provides a flatter surface for your hand to fret chords, perform seamless string bends, two-hand tap, slide, and roll through riffs with ease. The generous 25.5-inch scale length upholds consistency for a reassuring feel throughout every performance.
TEXAS SPECIAL STRAT PICKUPS
The Fender Custom Shop Texas Special Strat pickups offer powerful, bluesy tones. Overwound and calibrated to produce hot-rodded vintage-style tones that deliver plenty of midrange power, with crystal clean highs and a tight, articulate low-end. With alnico 5 magnets and enamel coated magnet wire, the output is increased yet focused for truly wondrous tones.
The control layout includes a master volume control, with independent tone controls for the neck and bridge pickups. The tone controls are equipped with Greasebucket Tone circuitry, which allows you to roll off the highs with adding bass for precision tone sculpting.
The body is home to the 6-saddle vintage-style synchronized tremolo, which anchors each string securely for peerless intonation whilst affording fluid vibrato control. The large '70s-style headstock is home to standard cast/sealed tuning machines for precise tuning stability. If you want the best of vintage and modern in an awesome US-made model, the Fender American Special Stratocaster Electric Guitar in Walnut is a must-have model.
