Upgraded Fender Electronics

From shimmering highs to vibrant lows and everything in-between, the HSS Strat is ready to conquer any genre of music with power and poise. The Diamondback humbucker at the bridge gives a boisterous double-coil texture, while the pair of Fat '50s single-coils provide the classic bell-like tones that have become synonymous with the Stratocaster. The five-way pickup selector allows easy implementation of the HSS' wide tonal arsenal whether you're churning out hard-rock power-chords, twangy funk licks, or wailing blues solos.

Upgraded Features and Components

Like the rest of the American Standard series, the HSS Strat uses a thinner undercoating than in previous releases which allows the wood to breath more and enhances resonances through the entire guitar. Fender has also updated the high mass bridge for enhanced sustain and tuning stability. The neck is crafted in a comfortable modern C-shaped profile with hand-rolled edges and a rosewood fingerboard for maximum comfort and playability.

Features:

- Three high-end Fender pickups with Custom Shop Fat '50s in the neck and middle pickups positions and Diamondback humbucker at the bridge
- High mass bridge block with bent steel saddles and two-point synchronized tremolo
- Thinner undercoat finish for improved body resonance
- Modern C-shaped neck with hand-rolled edges and rosewood fingerboard
- Tinted neck and aged plastic parts for classic Fender look
- Included hardshell case

No matter what your genre, the American Standard HSS Strat supplies the tone you need to shred with the best of them.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "HSS Strat"
Overall: My guitar came in perfect condition and all I had to do is give it a light tuning. Intonation was great. I couldn't ask for a better guitar. It has the awesome fender clean sound and the humbucker is perfect for hard rock and with a little distortion metal. I had an Ibanez RG series and this blows it away. I gave it to my neighbor.
Style of Music: Rock, metal, country
