Jemevo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Wahoooo!"

Fender FSR 2012 American Deluxe Stratocaster
Guitar made in U.S., for the rest, alder body selected not dried hard, handle great with offset radius (one more than in the standard!), Noiseless pickups, and pickgard aluminum.


Channel: bah it's a strat, you either like it or you prefer a Les Paul but for lovers of fast strat to handle (thinner, C) they will find themselves in familiar territory, home sweet home.

More compared to standard or vintage, access to acute Demanche less painful thanks to the slightly rounded body profile at the junction with the handle and a steel plate that surrounds the body.

The ergonomics are much better than a basic strat, whether vibrato, more just and stable, mechanical lock, the frets are perfectly finished, no problem of accuracy, re-tuning or other nuisance. Nickel!

To obtain the sound is very warm, precise, perfect for blues, rock, pop, Dire Straits, Clapton Hendrix, Yes, Eagles, rhythms are the body, the plans can be bold, sweet, burning ... the sound is powerful and precise, the pickups are great, I'm pretty impressed ... And it is rare.


As I said earlier, this shovel sounds of thunder, I will not embroider.
Month loan has fully convinced me.


I played lead guitar as by chance with a tour group, we Fender has "lent a" and what was to be a guitar "pro" but "modern and ubiquitous" proved to be a hot shovel, reliable, which provides that thing in the brain that makes us smile like a c ... and excites us playing.

So suddenly I kept it and I find it superb, and very rare color class, pickgard aluminum gives a class above the beast, (this was the reason for the loan) and the guitar is very well finished.

I recommend it to all who have the opportunity to see one go, although I think that we find more meaning FSR Fender Special Run, a limited edition, only the Deluxe to show blue and aluminum !

A little expensive (€ 1700 in France I think) but it will age better than a standard username or vintage wood with dried tears!

pharmacien's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Ultimate!"

Fender FSR 2012 American Deluxe Stratocaster
Beauty is made in the USA, of course, the bridge is like american deluxe steel dense, two-point, very solid, reliable, good performance agreement, in short just below a Floyd Rose (but when sustain even better ..)

The neck is rosewood, it's good, I find the maple a little "empty" and I like the darker keys! In addition the nail because Maple is still the wood is less dense and more fragile, it plays more in time and with humidity and finally gives her a very dry, with less sustain ...

The profile is a "modern C" end is very fast (for a Strat, of course, there is not an ibanez superhero ;) especially with radial offset, which allows for greater playing comfort and above all a perfect accuracy beyond the 9 th box, with solos fairer. And for someone who already knows the proper control strat, this is pure bliss, it's not by chance that some signatures like Eric Johnson adopts a radius offset, even on very vintage sleeves (one piece, profile V, yellowed wood ... but offset radius, not the beast Eric!)

The number of chartered lets explode a treble freddie mercury and the absence of a flare up only 24 disconcert fans of high-pitched chorus of all the ways that play only on monsters Hambuckers / Assets / FloydRose / Fire alert ...

The pickups are "N3 noiseless" who have the immense advantage of not generating background noise when you play or saturated crunch, perfect for the studio, but also and especially a scene, or proximity of other devices do not mess up the sound ..
Some purists swear by the vintage / reissue / custom shop / master built over 4000 € euros will tell you that these pickups have less character than Texas Special or Custom. I must say that having owned a real vintage Strat and a lot of, so a custom shop ... it's Pipo. I really do not diminish my respect, N3 are warm, clear, slap, brilliant, and superbly adapt to all styles of the kingdom of the Strat: from clapton / Hendrix, Johnson, through Knopfler (which her!) or Malsmteen, blues cushy, jazz, reggae shredding metalheads, all is good!
Metalheads? Yep! Because besides being good microphones simple, N3 are coupled to a system switch "S1" which allows to set the microphones! Result, we end up with sounds Hambuckers, large output level, much like the Clapton boost .. but much better.
In short, after having tried for a year over that of a friend, I found this great shovel with a fun game and incredible ears. And I'm used to Strat.


The handle is very nice, quick little tiring, very good ergonomics.

The radius gives a good sound easy, it's appropriate to say. But a good bad grateux will remain!

So perfect use.


We find ALL the sounds of strat ... without the enormous lack of background noise from single coils.


I use it for a year (a loan) and the FSR blue metallic over the past few days. But identical to an american deluxe so I do not speak on the stroke of the euphoria of the purchase, I know it well.

The value for money is good, because even if it is "a Fender" The quality of finish is well above the standard, whether the quality of wood, paint assembly, adjustments, work of wood, the pickups, vibrato ...
While the U.S. manufacturing prevents more affordable, but made in Mexico do not benefit at all from the same standard of manufacturing, quality control of manufacturing steps and super evil age.

With experience, yes, of course, this is an ultimate version of the Strat, taking grain and warmth of these grandmothers providing higher quality, and versions FSR (Fender Special Run) I have been waiting time allowed me to fulfill a dream: a super strat, rare (limited edition of 100 copies worldwide) and ... a beautiful blue!
Because I love the blues in the musical sense as color ;)
