Searching for the traditional look and feel of a classic Fender Strat guitar, but with a little extra juice under the hood? The AMERICAN DELUXE Fender STRATOCASTER LEFT HANDED guitar is it! Built for speed, it has an alder body, modern C-shape maple neck with satin polyurethane finish (maple or rosewood fingerboard), three Samarium Cobalt Noiseless Strat pickups, S-1 switching system, two-point synchronized tremolo with stainless steel saddles, abalone inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets.

Samarium Cobalt Noiseless pickups Fender partnered with legendary pickup designer Bill Lawrence. The pickup that was birthed from this extraordinary partnership is the Samarium Cobalt Noiseless pickup. Fender’s groundbreaking S-1 switching system allows players to switch pickup configurations in an instant. The switch is visually undetectable, but tonally it turns your instrument into the most versatile axe on the planet! Located in the crown of the master volume knob, one push of the switch will place your pickups in an assemblage of parallel, series and pickup-combining configurations. You can have the best of all worlds!
It has no hum, no microphonics, close to zero magnetic interruption of the string path; and the widest sonic parameters possible-from Fender classic single coils to tones not yet imagined. Truly a revolutionary design in guitar pickups.
