What we say:
As the name suggests, this Stratocaster is designed for hard-working players who gig regularly in small, sweaty venues and need a mean axe that spits out a range of flexible, high quality tones night after night.
This Deluxe Roadhouse model has plenty of gig-centric features to make life easier on all the road warriors out there.
The Deluxe Roadhouse’s Maple neck has a popular ‘Modern C’ profile to appeal to a great number of players. This is married to a 12” radius fingerboard which is a good deal flatter than regular Strats: this makes lead playing a real breeze: more turned fingerboards tend to choke out certain notes but you’ll have no problems here! 22 Narrow tall frets provide a good midway point between small vintage frets and massive modern ones. A brace of locking tuners is also a most welcome addition.
The pickups are Fender Noiseless Strat models which distill all of that vintage cut and twang into units that have little to no background noise. These pickups are expanded via an active V6 preamp: the middle tone control is a 6 way rotary switch with further tonal possibilities to use, opening the palette of sounds significantly. A switch on the volume pot controls whether this function is on or off.
The Deluxe Roadhouse Strat is an excellent addition to the Fender catalogue that will appeal to a large number of Stratocaster fans. This particular model is available here in Olympic White.
