There have been a lot of reports that Fender has been very slow shipping certain color options of the new 2010 American Deluxe Stratocaster. I know some people have been waiting for 6 months or more for their guitars. These are standard color options that are listed on the Fender website yet they have been out of stock for months. I have checked with the online retailers such as Music123 and Musician’s Friend and they’ve informed me that Fender is trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. Music123 told me that they can ship any color option that you want between now and the 2nd week of November. Please remember that they are still at the mercy of Fender.
I am currently recommending that you buy your Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster at Music123. The reason being that they require no money down, you will not be charged until your guitar ships and you can request a refund at any time if you get tired of waiting for your new guitar. I have used Music123 many times in the past and they have always been excellent to work with. They have the best customer service I have ever found from an online music equipment retailer.
Or you can simply buy on eBay which is always a safe way to get a good deal on an instrument. Especially on a used instrument. Check the eBay links below for the guitar you want.
