When Leo Fender introduced the world to the original Stratocaster, it changed the world of contemporary music. After more than a half century, the Strat HSS adds a little muscle to that legendary blueprint. The Special Edition Strat HSS Noir is a modern twist on the classic design that adds elegance to this workingman's guitar. It boasts a fast-action maple neck and a trio of pickups for the famed Strat versatility. But its satin black finish, pau ferro fretboard, and bridge humbucker take this Strat HSS to the next level.

Classic Strat construction

Over the decades, Fender has made concessions to the changing musical styles and the needs of both the novice and pro guitarist, which have led to an astonishing array of Stratocasters with new colors, special finishes, and upgraded electronics. But the main recipe hasn't changed. And though the Special Edition Strat HSS Noir takes the design to a new place, it still retains everything that makes the Strat one of the most lauded electric guitars in history. That means a double-cutaway solid alder body, a trio of pickups that provides a ton of tone, and a vintage-style tremolo.

    Special-edition aesthetics

    What separates this Strat HSS from the pack is its dark aesthetics, lending the instrument a smoky personality. The body is cloaked in a stealthy satin black finish that is complemented by a red-trimmed black pickguard. The darker look extends to the Strat HSS Noir's pau ferro fretboard, which also serves to add a hint of clarity to your tone. And Music Experience players agree, the black matching headstock finishes the visual appeal of this instrument in a classy way.

    Maple neck capped with warm-sounding rosewood

    Your hand will feel extremely comfortable wrapped around this guitar's Modern C-shaped maple neck. It's a popular carve that promotes your fastest playing while remaining comfortable for chording. And to continue with the guitar's "darker" attitude, Fender outfitted the Strat HSS Noir with a pau ferro fretboard. The pau ferro not only imparts a unique look to the guitar, but it adds a bit of attack to the tone for a more singing quality.
