With over a dozen new innovations, each guitar is a true performer with eye-catching style, exceptional feel and versatile sound from the very first moment you plug it in and play.

  • Double cutaway electric guitar
  • Three all-new fourth generation Noiseless single-coil Stratocaster pickups
  • S-1™ switching for even more tonal versatility
  • Compound profile neck; redesigned contoured neck heel
  • 9.5”-14” compound radius fingerboard

All-New American Elite Neck and Neck Heel

Designed for 21st-century players, the American Elite Series sports a new compound neck profile designed for comfort and the ultimate playability. A modern “C”-shape at the nut, the rear of the neck morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the updated neck heel that blends into the asymmetrical neck volute, providing plenty of ergonomic support and comfortably enhanced playing feel.

All-New 4th Generation Noiseless Pickups

With the all-new 4th generation Noiseless pickups, exclusive to the American Elite Series, we’ve achieved the sonic equivalent of cold fusion—authentic vintage-style Fender sound combined with noise-free performance. A quantum leap in pickup technology, these bleeding-edge pickups are the pinnacle of our pickup designs, offering crisp, clear cleans as well as gigantic overdriven tones that are bursting with pure rock power.

New Double Action Truss Rod Adjustment Wheel

The new double action truss rod adjustment wheel makes it a snap to adjust the instrument's neck relief without any special tools.

S-1 Switch

The S-1 switch activates alternate wiring options for even more tonal variations. Discreetly placed atop the volume control, it engages or disengages at the tap of a finger for on-the-fly adjustments.

New Soft Touch Knobs

These easy-grip knobs make on-the-fly volume and tone adjustments a breeze.

Locking Tuning Machines with All Short Posts

Enjoy lightning-fast, easy re-stringing and enhanced playability from the new locking short-post tuning machines. Not only do they provide increased break angle at the nut, they also increase tuning stability.
