Fender: American Special Stratocaster

This was Saturday's catch from the Swee Lee warehouse sale; Fender's American Special Stratocaster. I own 3 Strats in the mean time, one of which is an American Special so this addition to the fold required a little difference to make it worth the trouble; I chose a rosewood fretboard version. Nothing outstanding about this guitar, just that I've never owned a rosewood fretboard version before so this was a good pick (no pun intended). Come to think of it, my heroes embrace rosewood fretboard in their Strats- SRV, Thomas Blug, Jeff Golub, Jeff Beck & Nick Johnston before he moved to the Schecter camp. Will be doing away with those Texas Special pickups soon, time to go shopping (again). 🎸
