- Custom Shop single-coils + humbucker = massive tone arsenal
- Juice your sustain with the American Standard Stratocaster bridge
- Thinner Body Undercoat for optimal body resonance
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 laquer finishes. With Fender's American Stratocaster HSS, you get the best of both worlds.Fender American Standard Stratocaster HSS Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
