Great guitar - perhaps too good?

Uzair, 14.10.2017
This is an incredible guitar - it's build quality is excellent as expected from USA Fender. In fact, Fender is currently having a great time in its production of guitars - they're simply flawless at the moment.

Sounds are great - bridge is a little too bright but rolling off some tone and volume, or using an EQ can help with its acerbic tone. It's likely I will change the bridge pickup for something more versatile in the future.

It plays like a dream - definitely very easy with the compound neck which really helps to inspire your musicality and just add a lot of fun to your playing.

The only thing I would say is about where this guitar might sit in your collection - it's clearly a brilliant and expensive instrument and so I tend to grab my Mexican Baja tele for general playing leaving the Elite for the times I know I will have a good hour or so to play.

Additionally, the Elite sits just before a Fender Custom Shop but weirdly enough, probably wouldn't hold the same sense of pride or want to pass it on as some sort of heirloom.

Overall, it's a wonderful guitar - build, sound and play is fantastic...but maybe, if you can afford it (and I can't) get a custom shop if you're concerned with a guitar that will 'last a lifetime' or a cheaper guitar for something you don't mind throwing about a bit!

Very good evolution of a classic

Orgel Stephan, 15.02.2018
To say it straight away: Fender has succeeded with the AM Elite Strat a fantastic development of their millions of Stratocaster design. The sound of the 3 4th generation Coil's Fender is typically percussive with a carrying bass and clear highs, but even in the hi-gain range without disturbing humming. The body made of ash wood brings a tremendous sustain and looks great for my taste together with the maple neck.
The compound neck profile ensures first-class playability from the bass to the high registers. The tremolo system is fine to use and even tuned to increase the tone. Nevertheless, it is not for tremolo orgies - for which it probably was not constructed. The guitar is absolutely stable. From me there are full 5 stars in the overall rating. I could not give a 5-star in the processing, because the tremolo lever is now difficult to insert and much harder to pull out. In addition, the guitar had a tiny Lackeinschluss on the body. But I was able to polish it out myself. Master Poti had any adhesive residue, which I could also remove. These are the only points I have to complain about in a guitar of this price range. The AM Elite Strat is a very versatile guitar with which you can be proud of any occasion.
