S-1 switching system

3 Samarium Cobalt Noiseless pickups produce a Vintage Strat sound, very powerful, and avoid the classic hum of single-coils.
In addition, the S-1 switching system, located in the top of the volume knob, provides a great flexibility. It activates a dedicated circuit that drastically alters the sound and that extends the musical panorama of the American Deluxe.

General opinion

It turns out immediately comfortable and with a great playability, thanks to an extraordinary neck, fast and smooth, and the steel Tremolo bridge that, above all together with the bridge pickup, delivers a great sustain. It includes a molded hardshell case.
A real Strat, really well done, and capable to produce a large sounds range. In my opinion the price is justified.
