SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (March 30, 2010) – The latest incarnations of Fender’s acclaimed American Deluxe series Stratocaster and Telecaster guitar models are designed to deliver high-tech cutting-edge tone, tradition and innovation to the modern guitarist.
All six—four new Stratocaster models and two new Telecaster models—are conceived as tonally sophisticated modern iterations of both timeless instruments. All feature a trio of groundbreaking advances—new compound radius fretboards for exhilaratingly effortless string bending anywhere along the neck (never before offered on a Fender instrument), quiet new N3 Noiseless™ pickups for supercharged Stratocaster sparkle and Telecaster spank with no hum, and reconfigured S-1™ switching for even more pronounced tonal options.
The American Deluxe Strat® also includes a two-point synchronized American Deluxe tremolo bridge with pop-in arm, beveled neck heel and staggered locking tuners, as does the American Deluxe Ash Strat, which features the distinct grain pattern of an ash body. The American Deluxe Strat V Neck also shares these features, plus a classic tinted maple neck with a 1950s “V” shape. The American Deluxe Strat HSS has all the features of its siblings and a DH-1 humbucking bridge pickup, LSR roller nut and new “passing lane” switch that instantly routes the signal from any pickup position to the bridge position with the tone circuit bypassed, which will increase complex overtones and volume.
The American Deluxe Tele® and American Deluxe Ash Tele both present the 21st century editions of Fender’s classic original. They too feature compound radius fretboards, N3 noiseless pickups, reconfigured S-1 switching, staggered locking tuners and beveled neck heels. Both also feature six chromed brass bridge saddles. The American Deluxe Tele has a bound-top contoured body; the American Deluxe Ash Tele has a traditional ash body.
