American Elite Neck
Designed for 21st-century players, the American Elite Series sports a new compound neck profile designed for comfort and the ultimate playability. A modern "C"-shape at the nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern "D"-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of ergonomic support.

Fourth Generation Noiseless Pickups
Exclusive to the American Elite Series, Fender's fourth generation Noiseless pickups have achieved the sonic equivalent of cold fusion – authentic vintage-style Fender sound combined with noise-free performance. A quantum leap in pickup technology, these bleeding-edge pickups are the pinnacle of Fender's pickup designs, offering crisp, clear cleans as well as gigantic overdriven tones that bursting with pure rock power.

Double Action Truss Rod Adjustment Wheel
The double action truss rod adjustment wheel makes it a snap to adjust the instrument's neck relief without any special tools.

American Elite Neck Heel
For improved upper register access and elegantly functional modern style, the American Elite Series' new cutaway neck heel blends into the asymmetrical neck volute for comfortable enhanced playing feel.

Locking Tuning Machines with All Short Posts
Enjoy lightning-fast, easy re-stringing and enhanced playability from the new locking short post tuning machines. Not only do they provide increased break angle at the nut, they also increase tuning stability.

S-1™ Switch
The S-1 switch on this model activates series or parallel wiring options when using both pickups for even more tonal variations. Discreetly placed atop the volume control, it engages or disengages at the tap of a finger for on-the-fly adjustments.
