MORE ABOUT AMERICAN CUSTOM STRAT® RW
Transcending classic design elements with eye-catching appeal, the American Custom Stratocaster draws the most discerning players as the embodiment of elegance and perfectly alluring playability. An NOS lacquer finish lets the two-piece select ash body breath and resonate with each note. Its roasted 2A birdseye maple neck has a ’60-style “oval C” profile, compound-radius (9.5”-12”) round-lam rosewood fingerboard, and 22 narrow tall (6105) frets for exceptional play in all registers.
Custom Shop hand-wound ’64 pickups (with reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup) are connected to a five-way switch and vintage modified #2 wiring with tone-saver bleed, which features a master volume, tone #1 (neck and middle pickups), and tone #2 (bridge) with treble bleed (for keeping mids and rolling off highs without adding bass). Other features include a three-ply mint green pickguard, Custom Shop vintage synchronized tremolo, Sperzel® die-cast tuning machines with white pearloid buttons, bone nut and American Standard string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap, and certificate of authenticity.
The American Custom is the Fender of modern times-and then some. With Striking finishes combined with contemporary features and detailed craftsmanship, new American Custom Telecaster and Stratocaster models are not only beautiful to behold, but also highly functional in a pure Fender fashion.
