Here we have a very handsome Fender Stratocaster Deluxe from 2005 in classic 3-color sunburst finish. The Deluxe series, succeeded now by the Elite series, brought high performance modern updates to the classic instrument. With locking tuners, noiseless pick-ups, and a deluxe tremolo, these Strats are formidable players that don’t lose any classic appeal. The S-1 switch is a marvelous innovation that expands the already rich tonal palette of the Fender Strat into new realms of possibility including using all pick-ups in series and different combinations of pick-ups in parallel. The rosewood fretboard is a fine cut of wood, with nice open grains that make it stand out against the burst finish. The action sits about medium low for a nice balance between playability and clearity. The sounds from the pick-ups range from a raunchy twang to a smooth, understated warmth; a truly versatile axe. Condition-wise, this guitar has a couple stand-out blemishes but is largely very clean. There is some finish bubbling just on the top just above the strap button and some finish cracking on the back waist bevel, but aside from these there are no issues to speak of. This fine guitar is ready for a new home and ships in its original hard-shell case.
