Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster Vintage White 2015
Fender Deluxe Roadhouse Strat, creamy white, Mex 2015. The Roadhouse model was a deep-fried twist on the Deluxe series, so it got a big headstock, overwound single coil pickups and an active boost via a rotary switch on the second tone knob. It’s a fun combo, especially if you like BBQ sauce and crunchy blues tones. The neck is comfy and slick and that classic Strat balance and comfort is certainly on offer. The pearloid guard and buttery finish looks cool against the bold black logos and crisp maple board, it’s got a bit of swagger about it. If you’re after a Strat that will happily go from Nile Rodgers to SRV in a twist of the wrist, this one is a fun option.
