Hatsubai's review"New compound radius"

Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS [2010-2014]
Fender has been lagging a bit these past few years with their strats. People today are moving more and more towards flatter radii than before, and the solution to appease everyone was a proper compound radius. Companies like Suhr, Anderson, Tyler, etc. have all been doing this for years and years, and Fender has finally caught up with this new strat. The guitar features an alder body, a maple neck, 22 frets, dot inlays, two point tremolo, HSS configuration, one volume, two tones and a five way switch.

UTILIZATION

The guitar was pretty good, for the most part. The biggest thing people want to know about is how the compound radius neck feels, and I'm here to say that it feels great. The 9.5'' to 14'' radius transition is great, and bending with slammed action feels so nice on a Fender. Before, you could only go so low before you'd fret out, but now you can slam it to your hearts desire. The only real issues I had were that the nut could have been cut a bit better, and the frets needed to be polished a bit more.

SOUNDS

The pickups in this are fairly solid. The guitar features an HSS configuration, and it's one of my favorite configurations in a strat. The bridge is like a hot humbucker, and it does wonders in terms of getting that aggressive rhythm sound. It's not quite as dynamic as other humbuckers out there, but it does a good job. The neck and middle pickups are those Fender noiseless pickups, and they do great at clean tones, although I'd probably like a little more power for some super powerful lead tones. The blues tones with the pickups, however, is top notch, and I have a feeling that's what most people want when they play this guitar.

OVERALL OPINION

This neck is something that needs to be installed in every Fender out there. The compound radius makes all the difference in the world, and anybody who has ever played one will probably agree with me. There are very few out there today who enjoy that rounder radius like on the older Strats. The biggest issue with this guitar is that it's a bit expensive for what you're getting. You can get a higher quality Suhr for almost as much money...

iamqman's review"A rocker's guitar"

Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS [2010-2014]
I really like this Fender Stratocaster guitar because of the several features that is pretty unique to this guitar and much more modern and its original construction. This guitar features a humbucker pickup in the bridge and then the usual single coil in the middle' and one in the neck pick up position. This gives the guitar overall more versatility because of the various tones you can get with humbuckers and single coils in one guitar. Another great feature on this guitar is that it has a contour neck heel which allows for easy playability up in the higher frets. It's allows for shredding and soloing much more easier because the body of the guitar does not get in the way.

UTILIZATION

Body: Alder

Fingerboard: Rosewood

Neck: Modern 'C' Shape Maple Neck with Satin Polyurethane Finish, Dot Abolone Inlays

Pickups: 1 Single-Coil SCN Strat® Pickup (Samarium Cobalt Noiseless), 1 Single-Coil Hot SCN Strat® Pickup (Samarium Cobalt Noiseless), 1 DH-1 Humbucking Pickup

Tuners: Deluxe Stagggered Locking Tuners

Bridge: Deluxe 2-Point Synchronized Tremolo w/ Stainless Steel Saddles and Pop-In Arm

Frets: 22 Medium Jumbo

SOUNDS


The tone of this guitar is fantastic as you would expect from an American made Fender Stratocaster guitar. You have a lot of versatility in the tones because primarily the fender Stratoaster has a unique tone in the neck pickup position in my opinion. It has more of a warm singing sustained tone. But then you have the humbucker in the bridge position which allows the guitar to have extreme versatility in tone and options. So therefore your bridge tone can be thicker and chewy are more tailored towards saturation and distortion. Therefore you can play the guitar much easier and much more comfortably with any high gain amplifier setting. You'll have that super strat tone very easily and conveniently.

OVERALL OPINION

The price is little bit more than the standard American fender series stratocasters but that's because of the humbucker placement in the bridge as well as the contoured heel on the backside of the body. These future features drive the price up a few extra hundred dollars but it's not that noticeable compared to a lot of other guitars with modern features like this. At new you can find his guitars for right around $1500 which is a great price for alder wood body and maple neck. This is basically a similar guitar and she would find the new Charvel series super strats. The only thing that is missing is the Floyd Rose. Other than that this is a fantastic guitar and one of most versatile Stratocaster's to date.

iamqman's review"Fantastic guitar"

Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS [2010-2014]
The Fender Stratocaster is an outstanding and versatile guitar. It's a beautiful guitar from top to bottom with its great classic look and almost perfect balance. This is such a great guitar that has been copied by so many other garage guitar builders and major manufacturers for years. It has become probably one of the most influential guitar body shapes in the world. The reason being it was such a great sound in such a great look and just perfect blend of all features imaginable. There's been some revisions to this guitar but overall he keeps much of its original contact

SOUNDS


The tone of these guitars are fantastic because it features a humbucker pick ps with two single coil pickups. This allows this guitar for extreme versatility because of the variance of tones that you get with these pickups. You also get any contoured neck heel which allows for easier access to the higher frets. This is a great feature that you see on modern built guitars and now it's available on this Fender Stratocaster deluxe guitar.

These guitars sound great in pretty much any amplifier setting you have. Whether that be clean amplifier's or modern high gain amplifiers this guitar will serve you very well in any setting.


OVERALL OPINION


I highly recommend instrument to anyone looking for the ultimate Fender Stratocaster experience. This is a little bit more expensive than the standard American fender Stratocaster guitars primarily because of the extra features that's involved. This is a great guitar and at new you can find them for right around $1500 which is an exceptional price for such a great versatile and American-built guitar.

Hatsubai's review"Very versatile"

Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS [2010-2014]
Along with the regular and ash bodied deluxe strats that Fender has, they also have one to suit those who want a bit more power in the bridge. This guitar has an alder body with a maple neck, a rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, two point tremolo, HSS configuration, one volume, two tones and a five way switch.

UTILIZATION

The first thing I noticed when I picked this guitar up was that it's heavy. I'm not a huge fan of heavy guitars, and this isn't exactly a common thing for Fender. I prefer lighter guitars as I feel they resonate a bit nicer. The frets on this weren't perfectly level, and I had some issues when I started lowering the action to where I like it. To be fair, I can't complain too much because the 9.5'' radius itself is limiting how low I can get the action. I tend to prefer a flatter radius neck than the rounder one like on this guitar.

SOUNDS

The stock pickups in this are decent, but they're nothing too amazing. The bridge had a very standard style humbucking tone. It was fat and warm when comparing it to a normal strat, and it overdrove the amp nicely. I played it through a DSL, and it was very punchy. I found it a bit lacking at times for certain things, but most people should enjoy it. The neck and middle pickups were a touch bland, but they did the job in getting that famous strat tone that most people tend to look for. I think some aftermarket pickups could work nicely, but it all depends on what you're going for.

OVERALL OPINION

The HSS strats are some of my favorite, and this one was up there with the rest of them in terms of being able to get tons of sounds out of it. I'd personally install a push/pull where the tone pot is so I could have another sound, but the stock setup is pretty good how it is. Try to buy used to save money.
