Fender American Standard Stratocaster - Jade Pearl Metallic with Maple Fingerboard Reviews

5.0 stars based on 5 customer reviews

    While I still consider myself to be a beginner guitar player, I am simply blown away at the quality, sound, and playability of this Strat. This is my third guitar (all from Sweetwater) and is by far the standout of the group. The action is smooth and buzz free; the frets are flawless; and the rolled fingerboard edges are supremely comfortable. The included case is well-made, but this Strat begs to be on display for all to enjoy (it also begs to be played...often!). Jade Pearl Metallic is pure bliss! Thanks to Ian Angle for his advice and top-notch service, and thanks to Sweetwater for a great shopping experience.

    It doesn't get any better!

    Fender has really stepped up their game in producing high quality, affordable American made instruments. The new American standard series are just as good as any high end Fenders. I have played Fender Custom Shop Strocasters and have even been lucky enough to play a 1963 and 1958 original Stratocasters. The quality that Fender puts into these guitars is spectacular! The neck is easy to play, the frets feel amazing, and the sound is pure Fender. For the price, you will be hard pressed to find a higher quality American made guitar.

    It's Like Butter

    It's a Strat...nuf sed. OK, actually, I could say allot but, I am limited to how much space I have. So, it's like butter will just have to do. Anyone that plays guitar will know what I mean. Thanks, Fender

    2012 American Standard strat

    As guitars go this is the 25th one I own. Got it from Sweetwater as a Christmas gift. 1.. It came boxed/new/and inspected 2. Nice case. 3. The best playing fender I have. I own all kinds of other makes/brands and models. The nicest thing is the smooth playablitity. I stays in tune when gently using the tremelo. The finish and craftsmanship is as expected for a $1000 US guitar. That is to say its well done. Now the only reason it doesn't get a perfect score 1. I have many top ibanez guitars that are ar well made for the same price and play better. Especially the equally price Ibanez premium I got at Sweetwater last year 2. Although the are great sounding vintage pickups they are a bit too noisy(especially) on distorted tones for my taste. Otherwise I absolutely love it and if this is going to be an all around great playable and cherished guitar.

    Still a great value

    Fender does a great job on these guitars. Set up well right out of the box, and the custom shop pickups sound great compared to other American standard strats I've used. As expensive as gear is these days, it's good to know you can still get a great guitar for a reasonable price.
