What a guitar. The American Elite Stratocaster is a new offering by Fender to their USA-made lineup. It maintains all the unique and classic look and sound of a Stratocaster with all the quality you’d expect, but with a modern twist. The result is an unbelievably versatile guitar that works as an exciting feature guitar and also as a workhorse. A vintage classic brought into the modern age of guitars. We love it, and we know you will too.

At first glance at the specs, this guitar is like any other Stratocaster. An Alder body with its resonant and balanced qualities paired with a Maple neck which lets the Strat shine through. This is because the main element that propels this guitar into new territory is the use of three 4th Generation Noiseless Single-Coil pickups. This Stratocaster is in classic SSS configuration, but unlike the majority of its brothers and sisters, the iconic vintage tone of this guitar isn’t at all masked by the synonymous noise, hiss and hum from most single-coil pickups. Allowing you to deliver the classic vintage tone but without any of the interference, the voice of this guitar is unique. At low gain, this guitar is beautifully crisp and precise, but at full power, this guitar really, really rocks. Like most Stratocasters, this American Elite Strat has a 5-way pickup selector and tone knobs for each pickup, but there’s a special treat. Discreetly placed on top of the volume knob is an S-1 switch. Press this and the guitar engages alternative wiring, which greatly expands the sonic potential of the guitar. All of this together makes for a guitar that can handle just about everything confidently.

When it comes to feel, again, a lot of this guitar is familiar. The Alder body is perfectly weighted, being not too heavy for long gigs, but just heavy enough to give you something to really connect with. The well-known Stratocaster double-cutaway lets you easily reach the top frets, perfect for when you take that soaring solo. A particularly comfortable design feature is the neck profile. Rather than being a straight profile the whole way along, the neck on this American Elite Strat moves from a modern ‘C’ shape at the nut and increases to a modern ‘D’ shape further up the neck. This feels so natural, chances are that if you didn’t know, you wouldn’t even realise! Furthermore, to dial in the perfect action for your playing, the double action truss rod features an adjustment wheel which lets you simply adjust the neck relief without any special tools.

This guitar was so clearly built for the stage, and the finish confirms that. A Satin Jade Pearl Metallic finish oozes with style, and whether you want to or not, you’ll always be the star of the show.
