    Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster V Neck [2004-2010]Published on 10/12/09 at 03:12

    This is a Fender US, and therefore made in the land of Uncle Sam ... I, who am not pro-American while there, I missed my shot, but anyway, it must be recognize them this: know the Yanks build very bonrnes guitars. It was a Fender tremolo bridge with stainless steel that holds very well the tuning (as well as Pink Floyd, even ...), a handle "V" made of maple with 22 frets.
    You will watch 3 single-coil pickups (specific ST Models) with a small tool that is very useful: a button on the volume knob allows you to combine multiple microphones together, which allows us, with the 5-way switch, to have 10 positions of different microphones. Finally, one volume and two tone used to adjust the whole…

    This is a Fender US, and therefore made in the land of Uncle Sam ...

Finally, one volume and two tone used to adjust the whole ... like (almost) all strats.Je'll put 9 because the perfect guitar does not exist ... even if that strat totally matches my expectations.

    USE

    I previously owned a Les Paul, I must admit that the handle blew me away with its ergonomics, its speed, touch ... it's magic! I know all the strats do not have a handle as nice, but here maple done wonders (it is well known).
    Regarding the sound, I must admit that I have become since I have this guitar, an avid fan of the single-coil Fender, both in clear that saturated. I play blues, jazz, funk, rock, pop and even some metal at times, and I must admit that it fills me on all points on tone! We will put 10 ...

    SOUNDS

    It fits all my compositions and improvisations all I do. We can, thanks to the famous "S 1 switch", the button volume knob, playing between the hottest sounds, drier, more fat, more crystalline. I make out an SR Technology Jam 150 + and if I was not satisfied with all my sounds with my Gibson Les Paul, I can tell you that this is now the case, and I aui managed to find THE sound I wanted to get with this Fender Strat.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    Ja ... I have since a few days, and I spend most of my time to play (that's normal, it's brand new). I was tired of his Les Paul, and I tried guitars half Caise jazz Gibson Godin, of Grech, of Telecasters, even Ibanez. I also tried the Jeff Beck Strat, which is equipped with similar microphones, but I have preferred the American Deluxe with its handle "V" (for my taste nicer than "C") and ... and I liked the colors Honey Blonde.
    I think I do not separate myself from this guitar soon, and I referrer that choice without a doubt.

    Unique neck

    Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster V Neck [2004-2010]Published on 10/05/11 at 12:52
    This has the special V neck that Fender used to do way back when. The V necks on these are fairly pronounced, and if you're not used to V necks, this guitar might take you back a bit. It's quite a bit different from what most guitars utilize today. Still, some people absolutely love them. The guitar features an alder body with a maple neck, 22 frets with dot inlays, a two point tremolo system, three single coils, one volume, two tones and a five way switch.

    UTILIZATION

    The strings that were on this were absolutely dead. I had to replace those and give the guitar a full setup before I could allow this on the show floor. The frets needed to be polished, and I think it sat for a…

    This has the special V neck that Fender used to do way back when. The V necks on these are fairly pronounced, and if you're not used to V necks, this guitar might take you back a bit.

    UTILIZATION

    The strings that were on this were absolutely dead. I had to replace those and give the guitar a full setup before I could allow this on the show floor. The frets needed to be polished, and I think it sat for awhile before we even got it. The access to the higher frets is the same in any other Fender in that it's pretty poor, but it's not a huge deal. There are some times when it can be a pain, but it's nowhere near as bad as a normal Les Paul. The frets themselves were decent, but they could have been a bit better. The neck needed to be tweaked, but that tends to happen during transport. The extreme heat from the shipping trucks and humidity changes between states can really take its toll on guitars at times.

    SOUNDS

    The guitar had the SCN pickups in it. If you've never heard of these pickups before, they're special pickups designed for Fender by Bill Lawrence with some unique magnets. The overall design is super quiet, and they have tons of output. As a result, they're more modern sounding than what you would normally expect from a Fender. The S1 switch on this guitar is useless, and I recommend never using it. You can even convert the pot to a normal one if you're worried you might press it by accident. All it does is make the guitar really muddy. The bridge is powerful, and you can play metal with it without much of an issue. In between positions get very nice cleans/funk tones, and the neck is great for leads.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The neck on this takes some getting used to if you've never played a V neck before. It's different, and that can be good or bad, depending on what your own personal tastes are. The quality is pretty standard for what you'd expect from Fender in that it's good, but it's nothing mind blowing. I tend to prefer the older Fenders, despite them having a bit of QC issues at times. Either way, if you find a good deal on this, check it out. Maybe you'll like it.

    Very cool neck

    Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster V Neck [2004-2010]Published on 08/16/11 at 15:21
    The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster V neck has a great feeling neck, and that's the main selling point on this guitar. It has an alder body with a maple neck, a maple fretboard with 22 frets, abalone dot inlays, two point tremolo system, SSS configuration, carved away neck joint with a micro-tilt adjustment, one volume, two tones and a five way switch.

    UTILIZATION

    The neck is the thing that everyone wants to know about this guitar. It has an amazing feeling neck. It's big, has that nicely carved V shape and surprisingly fits nicely inside the palm of your hand while playing. The fretwork on this model wasn't too bad.

    UTILIZATION

    The neck is the thing that everyone wants to know about this guitar. It has an amazing feeling neck. It's big, has that nicely carved V shape and surprisingly fits nicely inside the palm of your hand while playing. The fretwork on this model wasn't too bad. The frets were crowned, and there weren't any edges sticking out that would potentially cut your hands up while moving up and down the neck. The neck joint on this had a slight gap, but it shouldn't affect anything too much. One thing I'm not a huge fan of is the radius on the guitar, but that goes for just about any Fender out there aside from the Eric Johnson one.

    SOUNDS

    This guitar had the SCN pickup setup, and I'm a big fan of that. First of all, let's talk about the S1 switch. Basically, it's adding a capacitor to thicken up the pickups. I really don't like it. I think it just muddies up the entire sound, so I recommend against using it. That said, the SCN pickups sound great. The bridge is powerful and has some nice bite to it. The neck is also crazy powerful with some nice vowel-ish "aww" kind of quality going on with it. I only use the middle for the in-between positions, but it sounds great as well. If you're looking for that classic Strat sound, you won't find it here. These are more geared towards rock and metal, but I'm sure you could make them work with blues.

    OVERALL OPINION

    You have to really like the V style neck to enjoy this guitar. If you're someone who likes those bigger, shapely necks, than this guitar is definitely for you. Be sure to inspect the guitar for any potential nut, fret and neck joint issues as they can really vary between guitars. The tone is generally pretty good on these, I find.
