Introducing the epitome of craftsmanship and tone innovation: the Fender American Special Stratocaster with Roasted Maple Fretboard (2018) in Black. Designed for discerning musicians and enthusiasts alike, this iconic instrument combines classic design elements with modern enhancements for an unparalleled playing experience. This model was originally a sweetwater exclusive. This guitar also comes in a brand new hardshell case, sized for electric guitars.

Crafted in the United States, the Fender American Special Stratocaster boasts a sleek and elegant Black finish and black pickguard that exudes sophistication and style. Its timeless Stratocaster body shape, revered by musicians across genres, provides excellent balance, comfort, and access to upper frets for effortless performance.

At the heart of this instrument lies its Roasted Maple fretboard, offering both durability and exceptional resonance. The roasting process enhances the stability and tonal characteristics of the maple, resulting in a richer, more articulate sound with enhanced sustain—a hallmark feature of high-quality Fender instruments. This guitar features an ash body, with the total weight come in at around 7 lbs 10oz.

Equipped with a trio of powerful Fender's Fat '50s single-coils. These overwound, vintage-style pups yield amazing midrange chirp, bell-like highs, and tight bass to cut through any mix.  The 5-way selector ensures that you'll always find the perfect sound to suit your playing style.

The Fender American Special Stratocaster is designed for effortless playability, featuring a comfortable modern "C"-shaped neck profile and 9.5" radius fingerboard, allowing for smooth bends and easy chording across all 22 frets. The vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge adds expressive vibrato effects, while the synthetic bone nut ensures optimal string resonance and tuning stability.

There are a few minor dings and scratches (pictured) on this guitar, which moves this guitar from excellent --> very good condition in my assessment. This guitar intonates an plays well, and has been setup with ernie ball 10s.
