Quick Overview

Fender 011-5600-372 American Special Strat SSS Electric Guitar

MODEL: Fender | American Special SSS

Fender's American Special Stratocaster solidbody electric guitar gives you popular Strat features at a price that's nearly unheard of for a US-made Fender. It all starts with an alder body for classic Strat spank, and it's all wrapped up in a great-looking gloss urethane finish. The Fender trademark maple neck feels great with its Modern C profile, and jumbo frets make for fast and precise fretwork. In the tone department, a trio of Texas Special single-coils dish out the chime while a vintage-style trem deals with the whammy action. You're going to love the Fender American Special Stratocaster.

Fender American Special Stratocaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • American-made quality at an unbeatable price
  • Cut through the mix
  • Greasebucket tone control rolls off highs without affecting volume
  • Copious sustain from set-neck construction

    The mahogany neck on the Yamaha RS620 is set directly into the mahogany body. Guitarists at Jims Music like the set-neck design because it maximizes vibrational transfer throughout the guitar for impressive sustain and helps enhance note definition too. Clean tones ring out like a bell, while overdriven tones can sustain for days.

    American-made quality at an unbeatable price

    Fender's American Special Series exists to do one thing: give you access to genuine US-made Fenders at unbeatable prices. The American Special Stratocaster gives you a great selection of cool Strat features, including a supremely playable maple neck/fingerboard with jumbo frets, three Texas Special single-coils, Fender's innovative Greasebucket tone control, a vintage-style synchronized tremolo, and a large '70s-style headstock. All in, it's quite a potent music-delivery system. And it's made right here in the USA in Fender's state-of-the-art Corona, California, factory.

    Cut through the mix

    You're sure to cut through the mix, thanks to a trio of Fender's Texas Special single-coils. Used in any one of the five possible switch positions, the pickups give you classic Fender tones that have been with us since the dawn of the Strat. But these pickups have a little something extra that sets the American Special Strat apart from previous Strat incarnations - a Greasebucket tone circuit and vintage-style tremolo round out the features on this beauty. If you're looking for an American-made Strat with unbeatable bang for the buck, it's the American Special Stratocaster!

    Greasebucket tone control rolls off highs without affecting volume

    Fender has fitted the American Special Stratocaster with their Greasebucket tone control, which rolls off highs without adding bass or affecting your volume. This is seriously cool, because it gives you explicit control over your tone onstage without your having to compensate for volume loss. It makes the American Special Strat a serious tone machine.
