[NAMM] Fender American Special Series
The latest incarnations of Fender’s fTelecaster and Stratocaster models comprise the new American Special series—built “by the people, for the people” as value-laden “guitars for the times.”
The three instruments in the new series—the American Special Telecaster, American Special Stratocaster and American Special Stratocaster HSS—are described as affordable U.S.-made Fender electric guitars.
All three American Special guitars feature alder bodies with gloss urethane finishes, 9.5”-radius maple necks with jumbo frets, and Fender’s best-selling Texas Special pickups (the Stratocaster HSS also has an Atomic humbucking bridge pickup).
The American Special Telecaster has a vintage-style string-through-body Telecaster bridge with three brass saddles, a black pickguard, and is available in Olympic White and Three-color Sunburst.
The American Special Stratocaster has a vintage-style synchronized tremolo and white pickguard, and is available in Candy Apple Red and Two-color Sunburst.
The American Special Stratocaster HSS has a rosewood fingerboard, black pickguard and vintage-style synchronized tremolo, and is available in Black and Three-color Sunburst.
