Features: What it does for you:
Fender Custom Shop Fat '50s single-coils Versatile pickups; bright, fat lows, smooth output
Diamondback humbucking bridge pickup Extended harmonic response with high output
2-point tremolo system 2 pivot points enhance stability & sonic coupling
Maple neck and fretboard Bright, even tone with long sustain
Looking for a Strat with an added humbucker punch? Check out the American Standard HSS. Updated, the HSS Strat serves up generous portions of classic Stratocaster tone with the added versatility of a humbucker in the bridge position. Shimmering Fender highs and crunchy humbucking mids, the American Standard HSS does it all with the quality and comfort you expect from Fender.

Fender Custom Shop Pickups

The HSS sports a triple set of superb pickups straight from the Fender Custom Shop. A dual-coil Diamondback humbucker occupies the bridge position while two Fat '50s single-coils sit in the middle and neck slots. The Diamondback gives full low-end and hotter mids to cover everything from blues-rock to metal. The single-coils upfront churn out ample amounts of ringing Fender high-end so there's no lack of surf-rock tones to go around. With three powerful pickups and a five-way pickup selector, the HSS Strat presents an all-you-can-eat buffet of zesty tonal flavors.

Upgraded Features and Components

This HSS Strat features a high mass metal bridge with improved steel saddles for outstanding sustain and stability. The neck is crafted in a comfortable modern C-shaped profile with hand-rolled edges and a maple fingerboard. Like the rest of the American Standard series, the undercoating is thinner than in previous releases which allows the wood to breath more and enhances resonances through the entire guitar.

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
- Tinted neck and aged plastic parts for classic Fender look
- Included hardshell case

HSS Stratocasters are a great choice for players in need of classic Fender tone with a little something extra. For one of most versatile and powerful HSS Strats yet, look no further than the American Standard.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
