2012 Fender American Select Stratocaster Cherry Burst
This is a mint 2012 Fender American Select Stratocaster in beautiful Cherry Burst. This guitar has a smooth maple neck and a gorgeous maple flametop! The body is made out of alder and this guitar comes with Fender locking tuners. It comes with the original case & cade candy! The Fender select pickups on the Select Stratocaster are superb—clear and more focused than any Stratocaster I’ve encountered in recent memory. The neck position is warm but with exceptional definition, while the bridge pickup has all the clarity and brightness you’d want from a Stratocaster’s most biting voice with a more civilized air. The second and fourth positions are more finessed and less honky than the tones I’ve encountered on other Stratocasters, but at high volume, they can positively scream. It’s easy to delve into Trower-esqe insanity, but this guitar can also manage a mellower blooming tone when you work with less aggressive tone and volume settings on the guitar. The no-load pot has a subtler effect than I would ordinarily expect, but I find the raw bite of the unimpeded bridge pick-up is still a handy sonic tool for cutting through a cluttered band mix. As a result I found a ton of the tones I wanted with the bridge tone set to 10 and neck tone at 5. The well-defined picking dynamics of these single coils shine, while the extended sustain bolsters this Select Strat’s expressiveness. Don't miss out on owning a beautiful stratocaster with that great strat tone you've been searching for!
