Product Description

Icon. Not a word to be used lightly. But the Stratocaster is just that. The new American Standard Stratocaster guitars are beauties to behold in sound, look and feel. Fender kept the hand-rolled fingerboard edges, alnico V pickups and staggered tuning machines for playability, tone and stability, and added several new features, including:

- A new bridge with improved bent-steel saddles and a copper-infused high-mass block for increased resonance and sustain.

- A new neck treatment-tinted for a richer presentation, with the maple or rosewood fingerboard buffed to a high gloss. The back of the neck still has that silky satin finish.

- A thinner finish undercoat that lets the body breathe and improves resonance.

- A new Fender-exclusive SKB molded case.

- Two beautiful new finish options, Sienna Sunburst and Blizzard Pearl

This version of the American Standard Stratocaster features a Maple neck for punchier attack and faster action.

Very happy Fender hasn't priced themselves out of market like other manufacturers. Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed to use it. The Wow Factor: The candy cola really looks nice with the maple neck. Overall: I know I'll be enjoying this guitar for years to come.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awesome Guitar"
Overall: I have been a Gibson Les Paul user for the last 15 years and I never thought I would like any other guitar than the LP but this Guitar is just amazing right out of the case! I bought this guitar because I was looking add to my sound a little bit of the strat like arpeggios and such but as I am playing it I realized I have a wide variety of tones that I can really use when recording and playing live. The action its great, the sound and the quality is just what you expect from an American made Fender Stratocaster. If you are looking to get that unique sound, do not hesitate to get this beautiful guitar. The finish is flawless and I really love the maple neck.
