FENDER USA Stratocaster Deluxe Version 1 "Trans Crimson Red + Maple" (2000).


Fender’s American Deluxe Series is as close as you’re going to get to Custom Shop quality without the big price tag. MADE IN THE USA with the best materials and top notch, modern features. The body is ash, a pricey upgrade. The modern C shaped, one piece maple neck features a 25.5 inch scale, 9.5 inch radius maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets. A trio of Fender Vintage Noiseless pickups deliver classic vintage tone. Locking tuners and Fender’s 2 point trem round out the hardware. Cool appointments include abalone fingerboard inlays, a raised metallic headstock logo and a parchment pickguard. This example is finished in a cool transparent Crimson Red color and is set off by chrome hardware. A cool looking Strat!

I love Fender’s American Deluxe Series. Classic Fender good looks but with modern features and playability. This Strat has great feel and a nice neck. The pickups sound excellent and all electronics work great. Comes in a Fender molded hardshell case with case candy.

I can report that this strat has not been played on a regular basis. If it has been played, then it has certainly been well cared for, so that top looks in fine fettle when you give it a more detailed appraisal. It is not in the out of the box, new, mint, showroom condition, but it is clean. Look on the gloss finish to the top of the guitar and you’ll find very little signs of use. Look on the rear and you’ll find a few small ‘superficial’ clearcoat swirling to the finish, Very light – No nicks, dings or dints, so certainly no negative issues to report.
