Fender's Deluxe Lone Star Stratocaster® guitar rocks tone as big as Texas itself, hot-rodded with Texas Special™ single-coil neck and middle pickups, a huge-sounding black-bobbin Fender Twin Head humbucking bridge pickup, and an S-1 switch built into the volume knob to select the outer coil of the bridge pickup for single-coil tone.
Other features include a tinted maple neck with "modern C" profile and large '70s-style headstock, 9.5"-radius maple or rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, five-way pickup switch, three-ply mint green pickguard, aged white control knobs, and vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge.

I am also the owner of the 2008-gen Lonestar, which is an amazing guitar, and is my current No. 1. Bought the New-gen version in the Ocean w/maple neck for the purpose of having a nice contrast in both look, sound, and feel between the two Lonestars. These guitars are coming through with substantial weight variances, so I did my best to acquire as close to an 8-pounder as I could; came in at approx. 7lb-13oz. Stock Fender humbucker has what I term an impressive P.A.F.- like barking tone - like it much better than the slightly dirtier Pearly Gates Duncan on Gen-1 version, but I'm kinda miffed it has three-point mount - so if you want to replace that down the line, better get your drill out (not sure why they did that). New-gen has what feel like slightly larger frets than the first-gen - almost jumbo-like, and polished to a nice chromy finish. Wish they stayed with the tinted satin neck as Gen-1, as opposed to the gloss.... Overall - Best guitar (Lonestar/Roadhouse series) for the money, regardless of brand - period.
A 2013 Roadhouse is next on my radar screen!!!
