‘The American Deluxe Stratocaster electric guitar maintains its traditional look and feel while introducing upgrades that include three N3 Noiseless single-coil pickups that still produce their revered sparkle and snap and-with noiseless design-no annoying hum.
The S-1 switching system adds additional pickup combinations beyond those provided by a standard five-way switch including new combinations of series and parallel wiring for a dazzling array of tonal choice. The compound radius fretboard that modern guitarists demand ensures strings won't fret out even with extreme bending.
Other improvements include the high-mass tremolo block that increases sustain; locking tuning keys; and a 50th Anniversary Fender tweed case.
N3 Noiseless pickups deliver the best of yesterday and today because they deliver landmark vintage Fender tone and response without the hum that can plague single-coil pickups. Using an improved stacked coil-coil design N3 Noiseless pickups are specially tailored for each Stratocaster and Telecaster pickup position. The insulated metal core of each pickup position type differs in thickness and composition for enhanced tone and Fender has fine-tuned the sized shape and wire gauge of the coils to balance the magnetic responsiveness essential to great tone. N3 pickups represent a welcome return to the warmth and clarity of alnico magnets. An Alnico 5 magnet is used in the bridge position Alnico 2 in the middle position and Alnico 3 for the neck position.
