    Designed for modern players who need tonal variety on tap, as well as unprecedented performance and supple playing feel, this top-notch performer delivers every single time you plug it in and play.

    All-New American Elite Neck And Neck Heel
    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 rear of the neck morphs along the length of the neck to a modern 'D'-shaped profile at the updated neck heel that blends into the asymmetrical neck volute, providing plenty of ergonomic support and comfortably enhanced playing feel.

    All-New 4th Generation Noiseless Pickups
    With the all-new 4th generation Noiseless pickups, exclusive to the American Elite Series, Fender 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 their pickup designs, offering crisp, clear cleans as well as gigantic overdriven tones that are bursting with pure rock power.

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

    S-1™ Switch
    The S-1 switch activates alternate wiring options 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.

    Passing Lane Switch
    The Passing Lane switch kicks your sound into overdrive, rerouting the bridge pickup and bypassing the tone circuit for hotter output with enhanced overtones, blowing the doors off your sound. Discretely located between the tone controls, the low-profile push-push switch is easy to activate while resisting accidental triggering.

    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.
