All You Expect... But updated!
Fender is legendary and therefore many people have a "why fix something that isn't broken" approach to their designs... However, the Elite range is everything you'd hope for from a Fender, but pushes into new teritorries with modern, and improved twists.
- A "C" to "D" shaped neck makes for an even better playing feel than ever before.
- New locking short-post tuning machines give the Fender Elite a far more buzz-free, reliable performance.
- Fitted with an adjustable truss rod for the very first time on a Fender.
- Brand new Noiseless Shawbucker pick-ups are exclusive to the range, and are some of the cleanest performing pick-ups on the market.
- Autumn Blaze Metallic provides the hot and fresh style this slick guitar deserves.
Overall the Elite Series has made the Fender Stratocaster even more versatile than ever before, with the highest quality and unmistakable tone you'd expect from Fender.
