Another year another NAMM show!
This year, Fender announced some new models, although I am not happy with the slim offerings. The biggest news is that they renamed the American Deluxe Series to American Elite (a throwback to the 80's and 90's for sure). The series continues the same look of the American Deluxe, with some minor upgrades, like a flatter, compound radius neck.
Also, a new series of acoustics and amps.
They also discontinued several old models and reduced the color options on current ones (always a bad idea!).
This year we got the following; visit Fender.com for more information:
American Elite Stratocaster
American Elite Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker
American Elite Telecaster
American Elite Telecaster Thinline
