Externally the American Elite Stratocaster has Fender's timeless style, but under the hood there’s an entirely new guitar designed for 21st-century players who constantly push the envelope. With its trailblazing design and over a dozen new innovations, each guitar is a true performer with eye-catching style, exceptional feel and versatile sound from the very first moment you plug it in and play. And now Replay Guitar Exchange is pleased to offer this American Elite Stratocaster finished in Ocean Turquoise with an ebony fingerboard.
Each Elite Strat features three all-new fourth generation Noiseless single-coil Stratocaster pickups with S-1 switching for even more tonal versatility by activating alternate wiring options. Discreetly placed atop the volume control, the push-push button engages or disengages at the tap of a finger for on-the-fly adjustments. A new compound neck profile designed for comfort and the ultimate playability starts with a modern C shape at the nut and morphs along the length of the neck to a modern D shape. An updated neck heel blends into the asymmetrical neck volute, providing plenty of ergonomic support and comfortably enhanced playing feel. The new locking short-post tuning machines offer lightning-fast, easy re-stringing and enhanced playability. Not only do they provide increased break angle at the nut, they also increase tuning stability. The new double action truss rod adjustment wheel makes it a snap to adjust the instrument's neck relief without any special tools. A Fender elite molded case is included to protect your investment.
