Fender launches new Deluxe Strats!
At this year’s NA MM show Fender unveiled an exciting new arsenal of Strats, including: the American Deluxe Strat Plus HS , Deluxe Strat HS with Fishman TriplePlay, Deluxe Strat HS Plus Top with iOS Connectivity, Fender Select Strat HS , and Select Strat QMT guitars.
According to Fender, “The remarkable new American Deluxe Strat Plus HS is the next step in the evolution of a great tradition, giving you three humbucking pickupequipped Stratocaster guitars in one with an innovative design featuring easily interchangeable ‘personality cards’ that instantly give you a wealth of versatile pickup and circuitry configurations.” One card comes in the guitar and delivers Stratocaster HS pickup wiring; two extra personality cards are included and let you ‘re-wire’ the guitar with specialised pickup and circuitry modifications quickly and easily. Simply pop the colour-coded cards in and out of the easy-access compartment in the back, and you’ve just modded your Strat in record time. Further, the American Deluxe Strat Plus HS features fully solder-less electronics that literally make other great circuit mods a snap.
Other features include a maple neck with comfortable modern C profile and satin finish, compoundradius rosewood fingerboard (9.5-14”) with 22 medium jumbo frets, single-coil N3 Noiseless Strat neck and middle pickups, a Twin Head humbucking bridge pickup and five-way switching.
