A compound profile of "C" to "D" gives players comfort and stability throughout, making its 22-fret fingerboard more easily navigable than ever before. S-1 Switching allows access to series/parallel wiring options, putting a whole new range of sounds at your disposal. Other appointments such as a double action truss rod adjustment wheel, short-post locking tuning machines, and soft touch knobs round out this Fender’s stellar feature set.
