The American Elite Stratocaster is one of the top line of the Corona factory instruments available from Fender. These guitars contain some of the top materials in tone woods, pickups, knobs, selectors, contours, and everything else. The Elite Strat is a culmination of Fender’s ability to produce vintage inspired and modern inspired features into one package. The Elite line has also introduced a series of jaw-dropping new finishes from Fender that match these guitars’ aesthetics to their brilliant sonic response. At N Stuff Music we are one of the largest dealers of Fender guitars in the entire region. We have customer service that is completely unmatched and we will gladly guide you to selecting the Stratocaster that is right for you.

First you want to look into the pickups that are in each Stratocaster model and the configuration that they are in to determine what will best suit your needs. The Fender Noiseless pickups are an amazingly quiet set of single-coil pickups that solve the headache over loud and noise single-coil pickups, but we all know we love to be able to get that single-coil sound. The Fender Texas Special pickups are a very popular set of pickups that authentically recreate much of the Texas blues inspired sound of guitarists like Stevie Ray Vaughan.

There are two different pickup configurations for the American Elite series of Stratocasters. These are SSS (single-coil, single-coil, single-coil), and HSS (humbucker, single-coil, single-coil). An SSS configuration will give you a much more classic type Stratocaster sound as well as the beloved out-of-phase pickup sounds in positions two and four. The bridge single-coil allows you to gain a telecaster-like bridge pickup sound.

The HSS configuration will give all the single-coil blues chunk and glassy cleans but with the ability to have the punch of a bridge humbucker. This setup is a favorite of many players for the tonal versatility that is available with it.

The American Elite Series Stratocasters also features Fenders S-1 switching system. The S-1 switching system is located on top of the volume control as a push button to engage the circuitry. It will then beef up your tone and completely change the character of the sound of the guitar. This makes for an even wider selection of tones available on the Stratocaster.

Looking for a jazz tone? Just engage the S-1 switching system on the neck pickup and roll off some of the tone.

There is no single more iconic brand in the history of the guitar than Fender guitars. Fenders are the brand that has set the standard for all other guitars to be compared to. Fender has never been known to limit themselves, thus production of the Jazzmaster, Jaguar, HSS strats, Squier, acoustic guitars, mustang, duo-sonic, and many other guitars as Fender seems to never quit reinventing their possibilities.

The Fender Stratocaster is the guitar in which all others are inspired by, so why not come into N Stuff Music and get the real thing?
