The Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster delivers a lot of bang for the buck. You start with that classic custom contoured Strat body with all its sleek lines. The solid alder body sports a trio of toneful Vintage Noiseless pickups that cover everything from soft and smooth to dirty and raunchy. The Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster comes with a maple neck and fingerboard - but with a modern "C" shape and a 12" radius for super-smooth licks, runs, and arpeggios. You can bend notes or entire chords up or down with the vintage-style synchronized tremolo unit, but you'll always stay in tune, thanks to the timeless Leo Fender design.
Fender's Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster houses a trio of Vintage Noiseless pickups to deliver killer tone. These pickups deliver the chime and clarity of a great vintage set with none of the hum. Fender Vintage Noiseless pickups are extremely popular with gigging guitarists that have to fight with different venues. You'll love the midrange chirp, bell-like highs, and tight bass that they give your Deluxe Roadhouse Strat. Alnico 2 magnets and Polysol-coated magnet wire create a wonderfully old-school feel.
This phenomenal Strat houses a hidden secret - a special V6 rotary tone switch and onboard preamp. This gives the Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster a huge tonal palette to draw from. It offers six different settings ranging from wiry single-coil tones to searing leads. The V6 switch replaces the middle tone, so it's easy to switch on the fly. A built-in S-1 switch on the volume knob lets you bypass the V6 onboard preamp completely for pure, unadulterated Strat tones.
With sound and style tough enough to rock a chicken-wire-enclosed stage, the Deluxe Roadhouse Strat is the perfect instrument for tearing it up all night long. Packed with a wide-ranging variety of tones, ranging from tough, wiry single-coil spank to a high-output sound that's perfect for searing leads, this guitar is versatile enough to handle anything you throw at it with style. It's the perfect instrument for a performer who demands sonic flexibility and the ability to easily switch sounds at the drop of a hat.
These pickups produce all the brilliant pristine, well-defined tone of vintage single-coil Strat pickups, with no hum.
This instrument features a fingerboard radius (the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard) that, at 12", is substantially more flattened than both a vintage-style 7.25" radius and a modern 9.5" radius. Feels notably flat even though there’s still slight curvature—great for bending notes without fretting out.
This Stratocaster features a two-point tremolo bridge with vintage-style saddles for superior intonation, sustain, tuning stability, tremolo action and ease of adjustment, along with an extra touch of original-era authenticity.
This instrument features locking tuning machines for increased tuning stability and easy restringing.
The V6 switch and preamp adds six extra tonal variations that can be accessed almost instantly, ranging from mild to wild. This control is cleverly disguised as a tone control, maintaining the guitar’s authentic Strat style.
The pushbutton S-1 switching presents special pickup and wiring modifications for even more tonal versatility. On this instrument, the S-1 switch is built into the master volume control knob and bypasses the preamp and V6 switch for traditional pickup-only sounds.
The Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster is the new workhorse guitar.
