Deluxe Strat® HSS

HSS PICKUP CONFIGURATION
HSS PICKUP CONFIGURATION

For a dose of hot vintage-sounding tone, a rich-sounding Twin Head Vintage humbucking pickup is situated at the bridge, for high-octane tone with plenty of output and sustain. Plus, the Vintage Noiseless neck and middle pickups produce all the brilliantly pristine, well-defined tone of vintage single-coil Strat pickups, with no hum.

12" FINGERBOARD RADIUS
12" FINGERBOARD RADIUS

This instrument features a fingerboard radius (the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard) that, at 12", is substantially more flattened than both a vintage-style 7.25" radius and a modern 9.5" radius. Feels notably flat even though there’s still slight curvature—great for bending notes without fretting out.

TWO-POINT TREMOLO BRIDGE WITH VINTAGE-STYLE SADDLES
TWO-POINT TREMOLO BRIDGE WITH VINTAGE-STYLE SADDLES

This Stratocaster guitar features a two-point tremolo bridge with vintage-style saddles for superior intonation, sustain, tuning stability, tremolo action and ease of adjustment, along with an extra touch of original-era authenticity.
