Freshly updated, the American Standard Stratocaster combines the classic tone and style of its forbearers with a set of sleek refinements. This Strat wields upgraded Custom Shop Fat 50s pickups, improved hardware, and a thinner undercoating which enhances resonance through the entire instrument. The American Standard Strat has always been a go-to guitar for players in every genre; with the release, the guitar that started it all just keeps getting better.

Custom Shop Fat 50s Single-coil Pickups

The model of the American Standard Strat includes three Fender Custom Shop Fat 50s pickups. These powerful single-coils are employed on some of Fender's highest-end custom models and represent the best of the best in Fender electronics. Classic Stratocaster tone is most often defined by its brightness and versatility, and the Fat 50s do an outstanding job in both regards. There's enough high-end bite to play syncopated funk parts, and enough depth to strum some folk-rock chord progressions. The triple set of Fat 50s deliver everything and more you expect in vintage Strat sound.

Follow each step in the creation of an American Strat at Fender's Corona, CA facility with this video:


Improved Hardware and Features

In addition to its stellar new pickups, Fender has implemented other changes to enhance this guitar's tone and playability. The undercoating finish is thinner than in previous releases which allows the wood to breathe more openly and enables better resonance through the body and neck. The two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with classic Fender whammy bar has been refined for better tuning stability. The package also includes a molded SKB case and a healthy dose of Fender "case candy."

Comfortable C-shaped Neck and Maple Fingerboard

Stratocaster aficionados have always celebrated the smooth playability afforded by the classic Strat neck. This version uses the popular C-shaped profile with a maple fingerboard to achieve that timeless Strat feel. Maple fingerboards have been preferred by such luminaries as Eric Clapton and David Gilmour. The neck's edges have also been hand-rolled for further comfort as your hands glide up and down the fingerboard.

Features:

- Three Fender Custom Shop Fat 50s pickups
- Comfortable Modern C-shaped maple neck with hand-rolled edges
- Two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with classic Fender whammy bar
- Thinner undercoating for improved resonance
- Vintage vibe with aged plastic knobs and tinted teck finish
- Constructed in Fender's Corona, CA facility
- Included molded, hardshell case

Like the rest of the line of American Standard Fenders, this stunning Stratocaster maintains all the classic qualities of the model while introducing a slew of useful features. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Fender products.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (27 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "2012 Fender Am. Std. Strat - Sienna burst w/maple neck"
Overall: Awesome guitar for the price. Great look and feel. Fantastic tone. The wood and finish looks fine. The maple neck is smooth, and it's shape feels comfortable to jam and bend on. The 50's single coil pickups sound awesome. I was very pleased. I got the humbucker pickup in the bridge for extra bite like I have in my '03 Deluxe Strat, and it is a little disappointing. Kind of like someone with a sore throat singing the national anthem... A little hoarse and breaks up a little too early when belting it out. Having said that, no buyers remorse and I love to play this guitar. Sounds great, looks great, feels great. Overall I am very happy with my purchase.
Style of Music: Rock - Alternative, hard, classic, and blues. Christian.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "NEW FENDER SMELL AND MY NEW FAVORITE LES PAUL SLAYER!!"
Overall: THIS GUITAR Is The FINEST Stratocaster I have EVER Bought or Played! Between the Diamondback Humbucker and the Middle and Neck CUSTOM SHOP 50's Single coils,You Can Dial in Any FENDER TONES You want,AND,ANY Humbcker Tone you could ever want. I ALSO LOVE the SUSTAIN this Strat Has,Thanks to a few factors,Including the 2-Point Trem,and the LARGER MASS TREM WEIGHT ,the ONLY THING that would Put this Over The Top,would be an LSR Nut. BUT,This is As CLOSE to a PERFECT FAT STRAT You'll EVER FIND! LOOKS as GOOD as it Sounds and Plays,And,With an INCLUDED BLACK DELUXE FENDER CASE,Chrome Logo,...For $1099.99,THIS was an AWESOME DEAL ALSO,....THANK OU FENDER And THANK YOU ZZOUNDS !!
