[NAMM] New 2013 Fender Select Stratocaster HSS
Fender adds in 2013 a new Stratocaster guitar to its Select Series, a model with an HSS pickup configuration.
The 2013 edition of the Fender Select Stratocaster HSS ups the ante on its 2012 predecessor with several new features. First among these is the "channel-bound" rosewood fingerboard, a brand-new Fender innovation in which the compound-radius (9.5"-14") rosewood fingerboard is "inlaid" into the thick modern "C"-shaped maple neck, wich imparts a more comfortable fretting-hand feel in which both edges are rounded, with no side seam between neck and fingerboard.
The 2013 Fender Select Stratocaster HSS also has a flamed maple-top body with traditional contours. The body has a hand-stained Tobacco Sunburst finish with a gloss lacquer topcoat, and the neck has a hand-rubbed oil finish and a contoured heel. Other features include Fender Select Stratocaster single-coil neck and middle pickups, a Twin-Head humbucking bridge pickup, five-way switching, three-ply parchment pickguard, aged white volume and tone control knobs, 21 medium jumbo frets, Bi-Flex truss rod system, two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with vintage-style bent steel saddles, deluxe staggered locking tuners and Fender Select headstock medallion.
MSRP is $2999.99
