Fender Select Stratocaster HSS Tobacco Sunburst

The 2013 edition of the Fender Select Stratocaster HSS ups the ante on its 2012 predecessor with several striking new features. First among these is the “channel-bound” Rosewood fingerboard, a brand-new Fender innovation in which the compound-radius (9.5″-14″) Rosewood fingerboard is “inlaid” into the thick modern “C”-shaped Maple neck…

In addition to creating a stylish new look, it imparts an amazingly comfortable fretting-hand feel in which both edges are pleasingly rounded, with no side seam between neck and fingerboard. The Fender Select Stratocaster HSS also has a beautiful flame Maple-top body with traditional contours.
