The Fender American Special Stratocaster is outfitted with a gloss urethane-finished alder body, a 9.5″ radius maple neck with a modern C profile, and a maple fingerboard fitted with 22 jumbo frets.

You’ll get lots of gain and tones galore from the American Special series guitar’s 3 Texas Special single-coil pickups. The Greasebucket tone circuit rolls off the highs without adding bass. Other details include a vintage-style synchronized tremolo, chrome hardware, and a large ’70s-style headstock and Fender decal. Fender accompanies your American Special Stratocaster guitar with a polishing cloth and a gig bag.
