Product Description

Going strong for the better part of six decades, the Fender Standard Stratocaster continues to deliver legendary tone and outstanding value. No matter what your genre, this Strat offers all the iconic features and qualities of the classic model at an exceptional price. For smooth playability, flawless quality, and legendary tone in an affordable Fender, the Standard Strat with maple fingerboard is an easy choice.

Timeless Features and Design

Every feature of this Strat comes backed with a legacy as old as the electric guitar itself. The time-tested combination of three single-coil pickups offer a robust tonal palette, while the iconic contoured body shape provides ample comfort and playability. The neck is made of maple using modern C-shape profile and capped with a maple fingerboard. Rounded out by an array of vintage-styled flourishes and a high mass bridge blocked with included tremolo arm, it's hard to imagine how Fender packed so much into such an affordable guitar.

The Right Tone for Any Occasion

Since 1954, the Stratocaster has supplied guitarists with an swiss army knife of tonal tools by way of its versatile three pickup configuration. A five-way pickup selector allows simple switching between the various combinations which places a huge range of tonal potential at your fingertips. Funky high-end sparkle, countrified twang, denser blues-rock tones -- the Fender Standard Strat does it all and more. Think of the guitar giants who have yielded Strats over the years: Bluesmen like Buddy Guy and Stevie Ray Vaughn, classic-rockers like Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix, and alt-rock icons like Billy Corgan and John Frusciante. Every one of them left a mark on the sound of popular music, and they each did it with a Strat in hand.

Features:

- Classic Stratocaster design, tone, and feel
- Modern C-shape neck profile with comfortable maple fingerboard and smooth satin back finish
- Three classic standard single-coil Strat pickups and five-way selector
- Vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge with groovy whammy bar
- Three-ply pickguard and chrome hardware for major vintage appeal

For first-time players and old pros alike, no guitar collection is complete without an iconic Fender Strat. The Standard Strat with maple fretboard is an amazing deal on an absolute classic.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (37 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Very impressed"
Overall: This is my third MIM and I continue to be impressed by them. I got the Lake Placid Blue this time and it looks beautiful. I honestly cannot understand why an American strat costs more than twice as much. Is it just because of labor costs? The quality here is just as good. It was shipped to me fast and left at my door for me. A quick tuning and she was ready to go :)

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "simple and ferocious"
Overall: I didn't purchase this guitar from ZZ sounds. I have purchased from them and they are a great customer service company from my experience in the past. I decided to review this guitar here because I often read the reviews from this site and decided I would also share my thoughts as well since I use the same media for reviews. I have been playing guitar for over 20 years and played some high dollar guitars and some low priced guitars. I love the MIM strat and tele's. I play blues, rock and some country. I love these instruments I love the feel the tone and even the looks. You can upgrade pickups hardware if you really want to spend money just to say I out whatever you do to it but with these guitars it's wasting your money they sound and play great from the factory maybe you Want a string guage change Which requires a set up but That's minor for what's going to be a great long lasting tool. You can buy an American model and it's going to retain value better if your into that but if your playing the thing every chance you can get on a stage your not going to be worried as much about it if and when it gets a bump or scratch cause it's going to happen if you're playing it its a tool if your collecting for the future go American simply because of the investment otherwise you just cant go wrong here they are great products.
