The American Elite Stratocaster boasts a huge array of top-notch features, making it stand in a class all its own. Three single-coil 4th Generation Noiseless pickups are at the heart of this guitar's sound, delivering iconic Strat chime without any unwanted noise. Whether you're after crystalline cleans or powerful overdriven rock tones, these pickups deliver on both fronts, and everywhere in between. The American Elite also features a new compound neck/neck heel for the ultimate in playability. 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. The American Elite Stratocaster is the ultimate in playability and tone, while staying true to classic Fender aesthetics.
