"Killer value for the $" - King Loudness

Audiofanzine
11 August 2011
  • Excerpt: All in all I think Fender is onto a real winner with the American Special Series. They are priced at $850 new, a hair below the Standards, but enough to make me really think that it is serious competition for the old dog. What isn't there to love? It's got great vintage looks, great feel, great tone, and is built by good ol' Fender in the good o...

" Good stuff" - kiskit

Audiofanzine
9 August 2011
  • Excerpt: After two weeks of use, I can say that I love: - Versatility - The shape of the handle (but hey I guess it's matter of taste) I like a little less sustain, even if it's nothing insurmountable, the balance of the vibrato for open tuning and I reserve my opinion on the holding of agreement. In any case I think it's ...

"Classic silky black Strat" - iamqman

Audiofanzine
22 July 2011
  • Excerpt: At new these guitars come in right at around $849, which is even less than the three single hums. This is a great price for an American made Fender Stratocatser HSS guitar. You get a wealth of versatility with this pickup setup.

"Bon matos" - kiskit

Audiofanzine
8 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Après deux semaines d'utilisation, je peux dire que j'aime beaucoup: - sa polyvalence - la forme du manche (mais bon j'imagine que c'est affaire de goûts) J'aime un peu moins le sustain, même si ce n'est rien de rédhibitoire, l'équilibre du vibrato pour les open tuning et je réserve mon jugement sur la tenue d'accord. ...
