        The Fender American Special Stratocaster electric guitar in 2 Colour Sunburst is a U.S.-built dream that has the classic double-cutaway design with curves in all the right places. The instantly-recognisable body is equipped with modern appointments that make the American Special a truly exceptional model.


        Fender American Special Stratocaster RW Electric Guitar - 2 Colour Sunburst


        The American Special Strat features the sleek curves and bevelled edges that have won over guitarists for decades, making it one of the most comfortable models to perform with. Crafted using alder, a lightweight and tonally balanced wood, Fender has guaranteed that this model is as versatile as it is beautiful. The double-cutaway body profile makes it very easy to reach every fret in its entirety, giving your fingers total freedom to roam. The finish has a protective layer of gloss urethane that ensures the 2 colour sunburst paintwork is preserved for as long as possible.


        Fitted to the body is a single-piece maple neck, which is shaped to the modern C profile to facilitate a lightning fast playing feel. Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, complete with 22 jumbo frets that are adorned with dot position inlays to guide your way. The maple/rosewood combination guarantees that your tones are infused with the utmost articulation. The 9.5-inch fingerboard radius is perfect for executing smooth string bends, speedy scale runs, and seamless sweeps.

        Pickups & Electronics

        The American Special Strat is powered by a triple-threat of Texas Special Strat single-coil pickups. Designed to deliver tones with power and precision, anything and everything you can imagine is catered to from country to hard rock. Control over the pickups comes in the form of a 5-way pickup selector switch, enabling you to select each pickup independently, or combinations of each. If you want fat, swelling mids, rumbling lows or searing highs, between the three pickups you have access to a universe of tones to explore. The neck and bridge pickups each have individual tone pots with Greasebucket Tone Circuitry - this means that when you roll back the dial, you can level off the high frequencies without reinforcing or adding low-end tone, resulting in a much tighter sounding output.


        The body carries the 6-saddle vintage-style tremolo bridge, which creates a seamless connection between the strings and body for maximum playing stability, offers greater intonation, and allows you to add subtle vibrato whenever you wish. The large 70s-style headstock carries Fender standard cast/sealed tuning machines that keep each string held steadfast throughout the most energetic of performances. The body top is protected around the pickups and control pots by a cool parchment pick guard.
