Fender Deluxe Stratocaster HSS
This Fender Deluxe Stratocaster is crafted in Mexico to be the ultimate versatile tone machine! You can expect your classic 70's strat retro look but with this model you get the most modern and high quality components on offer. This Deluxe MIM Strat comes loaded with Fender's innovative noiseless pickups, push-push switch system and locking hardware.
This Strat will certainly deliver that timeless full on Fender sound and style, just with a few new added party tricks that make this Deluxe a dream to play and live with. For starters Fender have included an advanced switching system in the form of a push-push switch in between the two tone controls. This small switch adds the bridge pickup to positions 4 and 5 on the pickup selector adding extra brightness and dynamic range to what would usually be quite dark sounds. It's not all alien though, traditionalists will be pleased to know that the classic 5 way selector switch with the two tone and one volume knob remain.
The electronics department upgrades continue with Fender's own 'Noiseless' pickups. With the vintage voicing still well and truely intact these pickups will be just as quiet as the humbucker at the bridge, eliminating the hum and buzz from a normal single coil. In the bridge position you get a twin head vintage humbucking pickup. This can provide hotter tones with a rounder midrange more suited to heavier styles. If you want you can even just activate the rear coil for true single coil tones in all positions via a switch.
Fender haven't forgotton about the hardware either! In the place of the standard strat bridge is a modern two point synchronized tremolo which combines the classic saddles with modern overall performance. Along with this tweak Fender have also implemented an asymmetrical neck plate for imporved neck access, flatter 12" radius fingerboard and locking short pole machine heads for an all round stable instrument.
