Fender Stratocaster Special Edition – LITE ASH STRATOCASTER Electric Guitar Review :: Fender Electric Guitars Reviews

Ash is a desirable body wood because of its tonal qualities.

Natural Birdseye Maple

The Lite Ash Stratocaster guitar is something new from Fender. Ash is a desirable body wood because of its tonal qualities; and with its birdseye-maple neck and Seymour Duncan pickups, these guitars give players just what they need to get the job done.
The pickup array consists of a Seymour Duncan APS-1N Alnico Pro2 staggered (neck), APS-1RWRP Alnico Pro2 staggered (middle), and APS-1B Alnico Pro2 (bridge) with 5-way switching. Chrome hardware complements the chrome, 2-point pivot trem. Single volume and dual tone controls. Weighs less than 8 lbs.
