When All You Really Want is an Amazing GuitarThe American Standard Stratocaster® solidbody electric guitar is the latest evolution of an American classic, priming it for the 21st century. The alder body with a bolt-on maple neck stay true to the original recipe for classic tone. But this American Standard Strat® packs a very trio of pickups - Custom Shop Fat 50s single-coils pickups, previously only reserved for Fender's top-line Custom Shop guitars! These premium pickups pack all the bark and bite that made the Strat sound famous. You'll also love the classic FENDER® touches and fan-favorites like hand-rolled fingerboard edges, staggered tuning machines, and aged knobs and pickups covers on the Fender American Standard Stratocaster solidbody electric guitar.
Fender American Standard Stratocaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Premium Custom Shop pickups
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.
American Standard Stratocaster Bridge
The American Standard Stratocaster boasts a bridge that gives sought-after tone with modern smooth trem travel. This redesigned block retains the mass and tone of a vintage bridge block, but is chambered for access to deeper dives. A typical cast bridge block is impregnated with a resin to eliminate 'voids' in the material and to bond it together. Fender's new steel block is infused with copper, which makes the block 100% homogeneous metal. The result is a more musical, higher mass bridge that has more of that machined-block sound.
Fender SKB Case
The new case is a true advancement in guitar presentation and protection. It is stackable, it balances perfectly, it is TSA lock equipped, and has glass reinforced nylon trigger latches and a killer form-fitted plush interior. It's the perfect way to keep your American Standard Stratocaster safe for a lifetime.

The best yet!
by Young Jay from somewhere, USAThe quality of this guitar blew me away. The frets are perfect, the action is low, no buzzing, the finish is flawless. The pickups in these are Custom Shop Fat 50's. I must say I like these better tha... read more [+]n the Custom Shop 69's. This guitar is warm yet bright, round yet defined. It is a pleasure to play, and look at, I love it! One thing I didn't like is the neck contour. It is quite thin, so if you have long fingers, you gotta play like Jimi. close [-]

by john chutkow from Albuquerque,New Mexico USAI love this beautiful little strat because it plays smooth as silk, sounds like a '62 vintage strat and looks totally classy and legit.Tone is nearly perfect: wailing highs,punchy sparkling mids,and t... read more [+]his absolutely ridiculous funky middle pickup bounce I keep returning to.The guitar is heavy, like a good strat should be, the neck is fast and supple,and the action is so low and fast my fingers get aroused just opening the case. When you put some dirt on it, the thing screams and roars like a Rory Gallagher tune. I am never going to sell it,lend it or stop digging it. Fender outdid itself on this Strat! close [-]
