More about Fender Select Stratocaster® HSS Exotic Maple Flame

La guitarra flameada con teñido exótico Fender Select Stratocaster® realmente representa a su denominación ya que posee un veteado flameado realmente distintivo en su tapa de arce . No hay dos instrumentos iguales y en este, acabado en Bing Cherry Burst con nitro satinada, se realza aún más el rico veteado de la madera. Es una creación verdaderamente exótica y encabeza la serie Fender Select del año 2014 con más estilo y mejor rendimiento que nunca, incluyendo un atractivo diapasón en arce ojo de pájaro con "diapasón empotrado" y un radio compuesto (9,5"-14"). Este diseño de diapasón incrustado trasmite una apariencia elegante y una sensación sorprendentemente cómoda cuando la mano recae sobre los trastes, ya que ambos bordes se encuentran agradablemente redondeados, sin uniones laterales entre el mástil y el diapasón.

Entre otras características de primera calidad se incluyen un talón de mástil contorneado y cómodo en el cuerpo de aliso, mástil de palo rosa con un perfil moderno en forma de "C" grueso y un acabado al aceite y realizado a mano, 21 trastes medium jumbo e incrustaciones perladas de color negro, pastillas Fender Select Stratocaster de bobina simple en mástil y medios, pastilla del puente de bobina doble (humbucking) Twin-Head Vintage, selector de cinco posiciones, golpeador en pergamino de tres capas y botones de control en blanco envejecido, sistema de alma Bi-Flex™, puente de trémolo sincronizado de dos puntos con selletas curvadas de acero, clavijero escalonado deluxe, mecanismo de ajuste del mástil Micro-Tilt™ y medallón en la pala de Fender Select. Incluye también un estuche tweed de Fender Select, correa, cable y paño de felpa.

As I saw this guitar it was love at first sight. It is beautifully crafted and sounds sweet and smooth, plenty of harmonics. The rosewood neck feels great in your hand and the contrast with the maple fingerboard is unique. The Bing Cherry Burst finish is really charming and makes this guitar shine. This Strat is truly a piece of art, a dream come true. Great job Fender!

This guitar is obviously a highlight in the 60 years of Fender Stratocaster history. Craftmanship and sound is made in heaven! To all others electric guitars companies, just one advice, surrender and follow the leader-FENDER!

First off the neck and fingerboard on this guitar is enough to make you want to buy it, but on top of that the Flamed Cherry maple top is sooooo Gorgeous in person. When i received the guitar i couldn't dig the strings so i added .11 daddario EXP's to it and when i went to tune the guitar there was too much stress on the tremolo springs so i had to add a 4th spring in the back which was no big deal and fixed the problem. When plugged in this guitar has a great tone for the neck single coil and middle single coil pickups, but the sound of Bridge humbucker when plugged into any of my Fender or Marshall Tube Amps is AMAZZZZZZZZZZZING for all kind's of Music from Blues,jazz,classic rock,Reggae, to Metal. If you want a guitar that will be unique and head turner this is the one.

Spectacular Piece of Art

(5.0)
Xeon on April 5, 2014
Blues Jazz Rock Heavy Metal Country

I have been playing for 7 years now and this is my first Fender product. I have to say I am impressed. I have always bought online, and this is the only guitar that has been setup correctly without any issues straight out of the box. No fret-buzz, correct intonation... perfect.

The second I saw this guitar I knew I had to have it; the rosewood headstock and maple fingerboard jumped out at me, beautiful and unique. Previously I have always gravitated towards Gibson, and have only ever played Gibson and Ibanez guitars.

When I opened the case, the first thing I noticed was the birds-eye maple neck, it is very highly figured and looks absolutely stunning. Pictures really don't do it any justice.

The rosewood neck is my favorite feature, it feels great in your hands. Playability is better than anything I have played before, and tone is exactly what I was hoping for. It sounds amazing.

I think this is limited to 300 pieces, so I feel very fortunate to own one. I hope others get a chance to see and hear this thing in action. Fender have done an amazing job, truly a piece of art well worth the money.

I've been playing my 1977 Strat for years and was looking for a new friend, I won't mention who but her initials were GLP. I saw this new Strat and thought I better give is a look and a go before venturing into the 'other world'. One word: WOW! If you're looking for a new love with punch, growl, enunciation, softness, feel, clarity, and beauty, look no further. This piece of art has it all!

Oh My God, Worth the Wait

Pkenny on March 4, 2014 (updated March 14, 2014)

The 2014 Select Stratocaster is so amazing that I can't believe my luck and fortune. I look at this guitar and instantly feel that some day it will be spoken with the same esteem as the 1959 Gibson Les Paul. It's stunning in every possible way I can imagine. And set up so nicely. The mahogany neck with birds eye maple inlay is so unique and gorgeous. This guitar is outstanding. The sound is to die for. It's been 24 years since I bought my last guitar. Fender has just sent the Stratocaster into outer space, and I can't believe I own one. I'm so happy.
