  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

The Stratocaster

The Stratocaster from Fender is no doubt the world's most-loved electric guitar, and has been an iconic image since its release in 1954. Its natural, versatile sound made it a favourite amongst guitar players, and still remains as popular as ever. This new American Pro HSS model features that same classic design, with improvements for the modern player.

Body Shape & Aesthetics

Like many models from Fender, the American Pro Stratocaster HSS features an alder body, with comfortable contours that every player will love. Alder produces a resonant and balanced tone with plenty of clarity, and is also lightweight enabling the guitar to be played all night long without strain on your shoulder. Fender have used alder as their tonewood of choice for electric guitars since the 1950's as the balanced response and slight upper middle definition makes it perfect for rock and blues playing. The American Pro Strat HSS is finished in a Gloss Polyurethane coating in an Olympic White, and features a full host of classic Fender appointments including aged white plastic control knobs, angled headstock and 3-Ply Parchment pickguard.

Deep C Neck Profile

This new American Pro series from Fender offers a Deep C maple neck designed for comfort and speed. Unlike other neck profiles, the new Deep C features more substantial shoulders which creates a more natural feel in the player's hand, perfect for chords and single notes. Mounted with a maple fingerboard, players can achieve a crisp snappy tone, compared to a rosewood.

Narrow Tall Frets

Another new addition on this model are 22 narrow tall frets which are mounted on the maple fingerboard. These are slightly narrower than standard medium jumbo frets and are effective for bending notes and playing chords with superb intonation. They also offer extreme comfort, and improve hand flexibility.

Pickups & Treble Bleed Circuit

The Stratocaster HSS features a Shawbucker pickup on the bridge, along with two V-mod single-coils in the middle and neck position. This newly redesigned Shawbucker pickup offers a fat tone that will beef up any performance for a classic rock sound. The newly appointed V-mod single coil pickups include a blend of alnico magnets, and are voiced specifically their position, delivering a full host of high-output tones along with vintage warmth and crisp clarity. In addition to offering the perfect rock tones, the American Pro also features a treble bleed circuit which maintains the high-end when played at low volumes. This is a particularly great feature for home practice when loud volume isn't permitted.

Pop-in Tremolo Arm

Another new addition to this iconic guitar, is the pop-in Tremolo arm which stays firmly in place regardless of how hard you play. The arm tension can also be adjusted to achieve perfect pitch bending effects.

Real Bone Nut

The American Pro HSS also features a real bone nut, which maintains its classic appearance. The main benefit of a real bone nut compared to modern materials is that bone offers an excellent resonance and sustain. A bone nut also delivers a very balanced tone, and will last a long time. In addition, this type of nut naturally self lubricates and helps you stay in tune for longer.

Elite Moulded Case

Finally, no guitar would be complete without a hardshell case. The Elite moulded case features body-hugging contours which holds your guitar firmly in place. TSA latches are also included for enhanced security and easy access. This durable case is also stackable for easy storage and transport.
