The American Deluxe Stratocaster “V” neck guitar is for players looking for that traditional ’50s V-shape maple neck and modern appointments. This alder-body beauty features three Samarium Cobalt Noiseless Strat pickups, S-1 switching system and two-point synchronized tremolo with stainless steel saddles. Its lightly tinted neck has a maple fingerboard, abalone inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets. The Fender American Deluxe Strat V-Neck Electric Guitar gives you a cool vintage look with all the modern features you prefer.

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.
