From Our Research Team:
A Modern Strat with Awesome Custom Shop Fat '50s PickupsThe FENDER® American Standard Stratocaster® HSS continues Fender's American Strat® legacy, offering a number of improvements with the same overall time-tested design. With Custom Shop Fat '50s pickups in the neck and middle positions and a smokin' Humbucker™ at the bridge, the Fender American Standard Stratocaster HSS blazes with increased output and warmth. This hot series maintains the epic Strat "feel" by keeping the classic hand-rolled fretboard edges and staggered tuning machines, yet boasts the latest Fender innovations including a new neck and body finish, as well as an improved bridge design. Built to last a lifetime, you can't go wrong with the Fender American Standard Stratocaster HSS!
Fender American Standard Stratocaster HSS Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Custom Shop single-coils + humbucker = massive tone arsenal
Fender has fitted the American Standard Stratocaster HSS with two Custom Shop Fat '50s single-coil pickups in the neck and middle positions, plus a hot humbucker at the bridge. With hand-beveled, staggered Alnico 5 Magnets and Formvar magnet wire, the Fat '50s serve up the authentic glassy cleans of an actual '50s Strat - but with a bit more atitude. With the American Standard Strat HSS, you can conjure all that spank 'n' sparkle for chimey, almost-clean rhythm work, then shift into high gear, deploying the humbucker for your blistering leads. What a potent tone potion!
Juice your sustain with the American Standard Stratocaster bridge
The Fender American Standard Strat HSS 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 lacquer finishes. With Fender's American Stratocaster HSS, you get the best of both worlds.
