Deluxe instruments deliver all the nostalgia of classic Fender plus some stage- and studio-friendly extras. Fresh looks, modern electronics and distinct vibes give each instrument a character and functionality that’s all its own.
Tear the Place Down
This one’s for the guitarist who wants to tear the place down with extra-scorching Strat® sound and style. The Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster is wired for supercharged tonal versatility with three Texas Special™ single-coil pickups, a special rotary switch (disguised as the middle tone knob) with six distinct tone settings from wiry single-coil snap to searing lead, and an S-1™ switch built into the volume knob that bypasses the onboard preamp to deliver pure sparkling Strat tone. With classic Strat style, so much tonal versatility and remarkable affordability, it’s a true Deluxe performer.
For even more tonal versatility, pushbutton S-1 switching presents special pickup and wiring modifications. On the Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster, the S-1 switch is built into the master volume control knob and completely bypasses the guitar’s onboard preamp, sending the pure sound of the pickups straight to your amp.
