Recensione di Hatsubai (content in English)"New compound radius"

Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS [2010-2014]
Fender has been lagging a bit these past few years with their strats. People today are moving more and more towards flatter radii than before, and the solution to appease everyone was a proper compound radius. Companies like Suhr, Anderson, Tyler, etc. have all been doing this for years and years, and Fender has finally caught up with this new strat. The guitar features an alder body, a maple neck, 22 frets, dot inlays, two point tremolo, HSS configuration, one volume, two tones and a five way switch.

UTILIZATION

The guitar was pretty good, for the most part. The biggest thing people want to know about is how the compound radius neck feels, and I'm here to say that it feels great. The 9.5'' to 14'' radius transition is great, and bending with slammed action feels so nice on a Fender. Before, you could only go so low before you'd fret out, but now you can slam it to your hearts desire. The only real issues I had were that the nut could have been cut a bit better, and the frets needed to be polished a bit more.

SOUNDS

The pickups in this are fairly solid. The guitar features an HSS configuration, and it's one of my favorite configurations in a strat. The bridge is like a hot humbucker, and it does wonders in terms of getting that aggressive rhythm sound. It's not quite as dynamic as other humbuckers out there, but it does a good job. The neck and middle pickups are those Fender noiseless pickups, and they do great at clean tones, although I'd probably like a little more power for some super powerful lead tones. The blues tones with the pickups, however, is top notch, and I have a feeling that's what most people want when they play this guitar.

OVERALL OPINION

This neck is something that needs to be installed in every Fender out there. The compound radius makes all the difference in the world, and anybody who has ever played one will probably agree with me. There are very few out there today who enjoy that rounder radius like on the older Strats. The biggest issue with this guitar is that it's a bit expensive for what you're getting. You can get a higher quality Suhr for almost as much money...

Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS [2010-2014]
I really like this Fender Stratocaster guitar because of the several features that is pretty unique to this guitar and much more modern and its original construction. This guitar features a humbucker pickup in the bridge and then the usual single coil in the middle' and one in the neck pick up position. This gives the guitar overall more versatility because of the various tones you can get with humbuckers and single coils in one guitar. Another great feature on this guitar is that it has a contour neck heel which allows for easy playability up in the higher frets. It's allows for shredding and soloing much more easier because the body of the guitar does not get in the way.

UTILIZATION

Body: Alder

Fingerboard: Rosewood

Neck: Modern 'C' Shape Maple Neck with Satin Polyurethane Finish, Dot Abolone Inlays

Pickups: 1 Single-Coil SCN Strat® Pickup (Samarium Cobalt Noiseless), 1 Single-Coil Hot SCN Strat® Pickup (Samarium Cobalt Noiseless), 1 DH-1 Humbucking Pickup

Tuners: Deluxe Stagggered Locking Tuners

Bridge: Deluxe 2-Point Synchronized Tremolo w/ Stainless Steel Saddles and Pop-In Arm

Frets: 22 Medium Jumbo

SOUNDS


The tone of this guitar is fantastic as you would expect from an American made Fender Stratocaster guitar. You have a lot of versatility in the tones because primarily the fender Stratoaster has a unique tone in the neck pickup position in my opinion. It has more of a warm singing sustained tone. But then you have the humbucker in the bridge position which allows the guitar to have extreme versatility in tone and options. So therefore your bridge tone can be thicker and chewy are more tailored towards saturation and distortion. Therefore you can play the guitar much easier and much more comfortably with any high gain amplifier setting. You'll have that super strat tone very easily and conveniently.

OVERALL OPINION

The price is little bit more than the standard American fender series stratocasters but that's because of the humbucker placement in the bridge as well as the contoured heel on the backside of the body. These future features drive the price up a few extra hundred dollars but it's not that noticeable compared to a lot of other guitars with modern features like this. At new you can find his guitars for right around $1500 which is a great price for alder wood body and maple neck. This is basically a similar guitar and she would find the new Charvel series super strats. The only thing that is missing is the Floyd Rose. Other than that this is a fantastic guitar and one of most versatile Stratocaster's to date.

Recensione di Hatsubai (content in English)"Floyd version"

Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS [2010-2014]
You don't see these too often, but Fender also made some american strats with a double locking tremolo. This is to help appease those who want a more stable bridge than the regular Fender one. This guitar has an alder body with a maple neck, a rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, a floyd rose tremolo, HSS configuration, one volume, two tones and a five way switch.

UTILIZATION

The guitar had some nice weight to it. It wasn't too light, and it also wasn't too heavy. The neck finish on this was a bit too thick, but it's easily stripped off if you want to go that route. I noticed that it was naturally flaking off, so you could also just play it long enough to wear it. The neck was nice and straight without any bowing, and the frets were in pretty good condition. The floyd on this was an original floyd rose, and I can't recall if that was stock or not. Regardless, it's a great trem.

SOUNDS

The guitar sounded pretty good. It had a PAF Pro in the bridge with standard American singles in the neck. The PAF Pro is made by DiMarzio and is a very open pickup. It takes gain nicely, as well as clean tones. I find it can sometimes be a bit linear, and I sometimes miss the compression that other pickups have, but it can work for certain things. The singles in the neck and middle are decent. They're nothing too amazing, but they can work for those stratty tones.

OVERALL OPINION

The floyd rose version of this can be really hard to find, but if you find one, jump on it immediately. These are some of my absolute favorite strats out there, but they can sometimes be iffy in quality because of their age and how sloppy Fender was around this time. The good news is that you can always resell it for as much as you paid.

Recensione di Hatsubai (content in English)"Very versatile"

Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS [2010-2014]
Along with the regular and ash bodied deluxe strats that Fender has, they also have one to suit those who want a bit more power in the bridge. This guitar has an alder body with a maple neck, a rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, two point tremolo, HSS configuration, one volume, two tones and a five way switch.

UTILIZATION

The first thing I noticed when I picked this guitar up was that it's heavy. I'm not a huge fan of heavy guitars, and this isn't exactly a common thing for Fender. I prefer lighter guitars as I feel they resonate a bit nicer. The frets on this weren't perfectly level, and I had some issues when I started lowering the action to where I like it. To be fair, I can't complain too much because the 9.5'' radius itself is limiting how low I can get the action. I tend to prefer a flatter radius neck than the rounder one like on this guitar.

SOUNDS

The stock pickups in this are decent, but they're nothing too amazing. The bridge had a very standard style humbucking tone. It was fat and warm when comparing it to a normal strat, and it overdrove the amp nicely. I played it through a DSL, and it was very punchy. I found it a bit lacking at times for certain things, but most people should enjoy it. The neck and middle pickups were a touch bland, but they did the job in getting that famous strat tone that most people tend to look for. I think some aftermarket pickups could work nicely, but it all depends on what you're going for.

OVERALL OPINION

The HSS strats are some of my favorite, and this one was up there with the rest of them in terms of being able to get tons of sounds out of it. I'd personally install a push/pull where the tone pot is so I could have another sound, but the stock setup is pretty good how it is. Try to buy used to save money.

Recensione di Hatsubai (content in English)"Very versatile"

Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS [2010-2014]
This is one of the higher quality USA made guitars that Fender has to offer. The guitar features an alder body with a maple neck, your choice of a maple or rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, dot inlays, HSS configuration, locking tuners, special neck heel, two point tremolo system, one volume, two tones and a five way switch.

UTILIZATION

These guitars are generally put together pretty decently. There were no gaps around the neck joint area, so no issues there. In fact, this neck joint is one of those micro tilt ones with a small cutaway to help grab those higher frets a bit easier. The frets themselves were fairly level, but they could have used some more attention when it came to crowning. They were a touch flat. The edges weren't sharp, though. No issues with slicing your hand while moving up and down the neck on this guitar.

SOUNDS

This guitar had some aftermarket pickups swapped into it. It had a DiMarzio Tone Zone in the bridge with some Area pickups in the neck. The Tone Zone was very powerful, and it had an almost cocked wah kind of sound. It's a very love/hate pickup, but I find it can sound great once you start lowering it. Most people have it too close to the strings, and it starts to get too muddy sounding. The Area pickups in this thing are some of the best single coil pickups ever made. DiMarzio really outdid themselves with this. They're a bit underpowered for metal, but they work so nice for blues that it's crazy.

OVERALL OPINION

The DiMarzio pickups in this really helped a ton. They were aftermarket, so if you want yours to sound as good as this one did, you might want to replace yours. It depends on how much you like the stock Fender pickups. Honestly, the Fender pickups aren't too bad, so you might not want to replace them at all.
