Modern Neck with "C" Profile and Satin Back Finish - This American Deluxe instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary "C"-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) and a smooth satin finish. Ideal for those who play with the thumb on the back or side of the neck.
N3 Noiseless Pickups - With state-of-the-art design and powerful sound, N3 Noiseless pickups supercharge your sound by delivering the pure dynamic range and response of vintage Fender single-coil pickups with virtually no hum.
Ash Body - Strong and dense, ash is a longtime classic for electric instrument bodies. Notably resonant and sweet sounding, it’s characterized by clearly chiming highs, well-defined midrange and strong low end. It also features an attractive grain that takes lighter-colored finishes especially beautifully.
S - 1 Switch - For even more tonal versatility, pushbutton S-1 switching presents special pickup and wiring modifications. On this instrument, the S-1 switch is built into the master volume control knob and delivers different combinations including all three pickups at once, parallel/in-series options and out-of phase sounds.
American Deluxe Bridge - The American Deluxe bridge is a two-point tremolo design with polished stainless steel "block" saddles, upgraded to include the all-metal (no resin) copper-infused steel block also used for American Standard series models. This design results in a bridge with greater mass, contributing to a more musical tone with added sustain and chime, and improved tuning stability.
Locking Tuners - A convenient high-end, high-performance feature, locking tuners offer increased tuning stability, especially on tremolo-equipped guitars, and they make changing strings substantially faster and easier than conventional tuners.
Great guitar, lovely to look at, and twice as good to play
