Kick in the Rocket Booster with the Standard Stratocaster HSS
Fender's Standard Stratocaster HSS gives you legendary Stratocaster tone and classic styling - with a twist. It wasn't long after the Strat's introduction that someone had the idea to swap out the single-coil bridge pickup for a humbucker: the perfect counterpunch to the Strat's chime-like "spank 'n' sparkle". Armed with a "Fat Strat," no solos is beyond your reach.
The Fender Stratocaster is the most popular electric guitar on the planet - and for good reason. Aside from the tonal mojo of its 3-pickup configuration and 5-way selector switch, the Strat's custom-contour body fits you like a glove whether you're seated or standing, allowing you to play all-night without collapsing from exhaustion.
Affordable - but fully loaded - the Standard Strat HSS gives you single-coil neck and middle pickups, a hot bridge humbucker, and a synchronized tremolo with a high-mass bridge block that serves up mondo sustain. Medium jumbo frets juice playability, and shielded body cavities reduce noise. The parchment pickguard and control knobs, tinted neck, and '70s-style headstock logo give your FatStrat a vintage vibe. Fender even includes a gig bag to protect your guitar.
If you've never experienced a Strat HSS before, be prepared for shock and awe the first time you jam the selector switch all the way down. It's like kicking in rocket boosters.Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Features at a Glance:
