What we say:
The Deluxe Strat from Fender Mexico is a refined and updated Stratocaster for the modern player who requires a little more output and performance in a classic package.
Essentially a souped-up HSS Strat with a cool large 70s headstock, the Deluxe comes with a fresh set of finishes (including this Candy Apple Red) and some great hardware choices.
The Pau Ferro fingerboard has a 12” radius to cater for more contemporary, technique-based playing styles. Narrow-Tall frets give a good feel that is half way between traditional and modern. Locking tuners up on that big headstock are a definite bonus too!
The pickups are a great selection of models: Fender noiseless single coils specially wound for vintage output are matched up with a ’Twin Head’ vintage humbucker at the bridge. This is a very agreeable set up: you get the benefit of extra punch, thickness and sustain where you want it but the overall sound leans towards a classic, vintage tonality so you can enjoy ‘proper’ Stratocaster tones without suffering a huge volume jump when switching to the humbucker. Smart move, Fender. There is also a coil tap switch located in the Volume knob to thin that humbucker out to a single coil: perfect.
We think this Deluxe Stratocaster from Fender gets the Vintage/Modern blend pretty bang on and we’d say the upgrades are definitely worth the extra spend for the guitarist who requires classic Strat vibes with a little extra kick!
