Model overview:
The American Elite series mixes classic style with modern technology. The Elite Stratocaster brings the iconic design right up to date, featuring a super slick compound radius fingerboard, minimalist black chrome headstock logo and Fenders brilliant S1-TM switching system. Only available in this series, the American Elite Strat features 4th generation noiseless pick ups along with a smooth two point modern tremolo, producing a vintage style sound with noise-free, emotive performance. From a modern C shape at the nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern D shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of support for fret hand antics. Locking, all short-post tuning machines provide increased break angle at the nut for buzz-free performance. This Strat is the contemporary players' new best friend.
