Modern strat with versatile sounds and very good handling

Klaus-Dieter H., 22.07.2016
My favorite instrument has been an Eric Johnson Strat with Kloppmann ST-60 pickups for many years. Through the hard tourall day, this great guitar has already got some plessures. In addition, I have some other strats, all of which have vintage equipment, especially Vintagebridges and VHälses. This makes me clear, but again and again problems with the bridges or the neck settings (neck must be unscrewed) occur.

On the last Namm show I came across the new elite series from Fender. And what can I say: these guitars have totally struck me from the stool, so I am now the proud owner of a Fender Elite Stratocaster in Mystic Black with Maple Neck.

I ordered the guitar on good luck from Thomann and was not disappointed. The guitar came absolutely uninjured and impeccably processed with me. Everything is very high quality, also the case and all the accessories.

The guitar itself looks simply stunning. The combination of mystic black with maple neck and green pickguard fits easily. Also the weight is moderate. I guess that she brings the 3.5 kg on the scale and that is well manageable. Externally a strat like any other, it contains many useful modern features, which have a very positive effect on the handling and the sound. Thus, the neck profile from C to D is simply the hit and facilitates the solo game in the higher positions considerably. The adjustment of the throat is to be done without hurdles with any "tool" with an adjusting wheel in the last cuff; Music Man has been doing this for many years. The modern vibratosystem with two-point attachment is preferably adjusted or set free, and leaves both sharp-edged screws and susceptibility to fogging. In conjunction with the terminal clamping mechanisms, a "tremoloing" is finally possible without modifications.

Also the new Noiseless pickups in the 4th generation are a real highlight. If these pickups from earlier generations sound rather sterile and partly bland, you get the authentic Stratosound as it should be and without any background noise, and also in the Highgain range. Also a good addition is the S-1 switch, which offers additional sound diversity. As a traditional Stratspieler however the 5 normal sound settings are sufficient.

After setting the guitar on my preferred setup, I could not put it down for several hours. The guitar is so dynamic and balanced that you can hardly believe it. It simply belongs to a good tube amp, preferably also by Fender, and is a super stage guitar, which always penetrates the band structure and harmoniously sounds in all circuits.

Well done !!!
Conclusion: If you think like I have already played everything in Strat, you should definitely try the new elite series. So, my eyes and ears have opened. Am thrilled... !

Additional points for Fender American Elite Stratocaster!

Paul-Ch., 03.06.2016
My Mystic Black Elite Strat came perfectly processed, in the high-quality Fender Case, with a spacious compartment with lid and easy-to-close closures, as well as all accessories (as with Thomann cited), super packed with me.

The final control at Fender was obviously exemplary, because there is absolutely nothing to complain about. Both from the technical (including setting) as well as optical processing, is with my Strat everything best.

I have already had the best experience with three guitars from the previous Deluxe series, which is about the neck profile of modern C and soft V-Neck.
Now I moved to the new neck radius of Modern C in a flat D profile in the body, more than stretched.
The transition of the connected profiles moves in the millimeter range and nevertheless the result is sensational. The playability is breathtakingly good for me; Especially with respect to the soli game (also high speed) in the upper fret area. The flattened neck base directly at the beginning of the body I feel as very successful and helpful in the game in the highest positions. Top, Fender!

Another highlight is the finally freely accessible, wheel-like round screw at the foot end, which is easy and quick to handle. Nix more with annoying neck unscrew!

Also for the new noiseless pickups of the fourth generation, there is only applause from my side. (There is no buzzing, neither distorted, strat sounds come brilliant, biting, undamped and and and from the amp.
It's a pity if someone does not use the S1 switch, which is sunk in the volume Poti (I already knew it from my Deluxe guitars). For me it is the key to unimagined sound expansion.

Conclusion after more than three months: For the overall assessment additional points would be justified.
