Fender American Standard Stratocaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Premium Custom Shop pickups for iconic tone
No matter how well you play, your pickups will play a big part in determining whether your tone is epic or not. The latest model of the Fender American Standard Stratocaster sports three Custom Shop Fat 50s single-coil pickups, an amazing value on a guitar at this price. Normally only used on Fender's top-line Custom Shop guitars, these pickups put out the essence of classic Fender tone. Cleans are bright and clear, the midrange has bite, and you can take your tube amplifier from mellow to raging simply with your volume control.
Juice your sustain with the American Standard Stratocaster bridge
The Fender American Standard Strat gives you serious sustain, courtesy of its all-metal, copper-infused high mass bridge block with bent steel saddles with elongated string slots. The result is a two-point floating vibrato bridge / tailpiece that serves up sustain like a hardtail. If you love your whammy, but aren't too fond of wimpy sustain, you're going to love the Fender American Standard Stratocaster®.
Thinner body undercoat for optimal body resonance
An undercoat serves to give the paint a smooth surface to adhere to so you have a nice looking finish. The thicker the undercoat, the more glass-like the finish, but the more constricted the guitar's body wood, which could affect tone. Fender has switched to a new undercoat that is thinner, and that allows the body to flex and resonate more, while retaining the cosmetic advantages of an undercoat. The result? You get the tough-as-nails resilience of a modern poly finish, with tonal characteristics that are more in line with classic laquer finishes. With Fender's American Stratocaster®, you get the best of both worlds.

by Matt Edwards from Seattle, WAGot that sweet spanky strat vibe in spades, dripping with effortless pinch harmonics and chimey tone, and the new mystic blue finish looks even more sexy and sparkly up close. Whatever amp I plug this... read more [+] baby into the custom shop pickups always shine through in beautiful way. The best sound for blues/rock IMHO is the neck pup, just the right amount of girth in the bottom and OMG does it sing! As always, the Sweetwater 55-point setup gets it spot-on with great intonation plus superb action. Can't go wrong with this ax. :-) close [-]
