A classic Fender tone wood, alder’s sound is balanced with equal doses of lows, mids and highs.
“MODERN C” NECK PROFILE
The “Modern C”-shaped profile is designed for comfort and performance, while the smooth satin back finish makes it play even faster.
HOT ‘50s STRAT® PICKUPS
We redesigned this guitar’s pickups. They’re packed with the bell-like, highly articulate tone that made Fender famous—only hotter.
Comfortable for chording and single-note playing alike, the 9.5”-radius fingerboard offers modern feel thanks to its medium-jumbo frets, while also making wide bends easier in the upper registers.
TWO-POINT SYNCHRONIZED TREMOLO
An updated design, this two-point tremolo offers proper intonation, full adjustability and easy access to cool vibrato sounds.
The S-1 switch adds the neck pickup to positions one and two, accessing previously unavailable tones, or the power of all three pickups cranking simultaneously.
