Maybe time for me to play my ‘get out of jail free’ card – I normally spend some time evaluating any guitar that I list for sale on my web site – Yet after a short visit to Google, to acquire some additional spec + info, I came across a very good review, courtesy of Mick Taylor, former editor of Guitarist, so please click here to read – The review is dated 2010, which matches up with the date of this used Fender AM Strat Deluxe with an alder body that sits under a cool tungsten finish – Nice to have something that is not part of the establishment regarding the colour chart – Sunburst, black, white, fiesta red etc
1) This Strat weighs a very credible 8lbs and 4oz – with a vibrant unplugged acoustic voice
2) Condition wise and other than a small blemish, this is a very clean Strat – Look on a line below the B string, pass the trem assembly, towards the strap button and you’ll find a small ding on the belly of the guitar – More skin deep, so nothing nasty – Otherwise very clean – Clean frets – Only slight and light pick marks on the scratch plate
3) It has made a visit to my work bench for a new set of 10’s, plus a check-up/set-up, so a sensible fluid playing action awaits any prospective buyer
4) Complete with the original moulded Fender case, various tags/paperwork/strap and strap lock buttons
5) The lightly figured/birds eye maple neck measures .836″ around the top nut end and gently tapers out to .879″ around the 12th fret , so medium depth overall
6) Note :- 22 medium jumbo frets – 9.5″ to 14″ compound radius + marginal wider top nut width at 43mm Contoured heel at neck/body join for comfortable + easy access to the upper frets
7) Final comments are an overview – The Strat Deluxe is a serious upgrade on the best selling AM Strat Standard – certainly with regards to the playing performance, so it feels slick and easy to play – Without spending considerably more, the Strat Deluxe was one of the finest USA modern spec’d production models you could buy, before you enter the world of Custom Shop models – Many of the features on the Strat Deluxe can be found on Jeff Beck’s personal guitar so it can’t be bad
