More about Fender® Select Stratocaster® HSS

Select instruments for select individuals. Introducing Fender Select series guitars and basses-true players’ instruments that put more than six decades of Fender experience and expertise on outstandingly appointed display and bring a wealth of high-end features and elegant design options to discerning musicians everywhere. With choice tone woods, figured tops, strikingly beautiful finishes, figured and quartersawn maple necks with compound-radius fretboards, specially voiced Fender Select pickups that deliver masterful tone, and other first-rate features, the U.S.-made Select Series puts Fender’s top-line best in capable hands-yours.

The Fender Select Stratocaster HSS takes the refined elegance of its triple-single-coil brother and amps it up through the roof with the extra power of a humbucking bridge pickup. Features include a striking Antique Burst gloss-lacquer finish on a sleek flame maple-top body. Its modern “C” shaped birdseye maple neck has a comfortable contoured heel, Bi-Flex™ truss rod system for rock-solid stability, a satin lacquer finish and rear-headstock “Fender Select” medallion. The smooth-playing compound radius rosewood fretboard (9.5”-14”) has 22 medium jumbo frets and stylish white pearloid position inlays. Full-throated sound roars from the Fender Select Stratocaster humbucking bridge pickup, with singing tone from new Fender Select Stratocaster single-coil neck and middle pickups, all with five-way switching.

Other premium features include a three-ply pickguard (parchment-black-parchment), two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with vintage-style bent steel saddles, deluxe staggered cast/sealed locking tuners and nickel-chrome hardware. Custom G&G Fender Select case, strap, cable and polishing cloth included.

My Brand New Strat

(5.0)
JJMeyer on July 2, 2013 (updated July 8, 2013)
Semi-Professional Blues Classic Rock Country

I'm a brand new owner of a Fender® Select Stratocaster® SSS [3 single coils!], Rosewood Fingerboard, Antique Burst.
What a guitar, looks very, very nice. Perfect Strat, and what sweet sound; clean and crunch. In connection with my '57 deluxe amp, absolutely top.

The best Strat

(5.0)
brandtrock on February 18, 2013
Amateur Blues Gospel Jazz Alternative Rock Classic Rock Heavy Metal Country Punk

This is the most comfortable Strat I have ever played. The quality of the build is fantastic! Of course the tone and resonation of the guitar is beyond anything else out there. These are not inexpensive guitars, but they are worth every penny. The Fender Select Strat is absolutely amazing. The guitar stays in tune, plays extremely well, and simply looks great too! You would not regret this purchase.
