Fender's Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster tears the place down with extra-scorching Strat sound and style. Its three Texas Special single-coil pickups are wired for supercharged tonal versatility, with a special V6 rotary switch (disguised as the middle tone knob) that delivers six distinct onboard preamp tone settings from wiry single-coil to searing lead. The S-1 switch built into the volume knob bypasses the preamp completely for pure Strat tone.
Other features include a tinted maple neck with "modern C" profile and large '70s-style headstock, 9.5"-radius maple or rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, five-way pickup switch, four-ply aged white pearloid pickguard, three aged white control knobs (master volume/S-1, V6, master tone), and vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge.
I have it in Copper, which Fender recently did a lighter version of in their American Performer series. I bought it because at the time it was the most tonally equipped guitar, with 30+ settings. Nowadays I think the Kurt Cobain jaguar has it beat, but I'm too afraid to check. I love the s1 switching. I recommend buying one of the metal springs that fit in the hole of the arm so that it doesn't swing everywhere.
