Heavy and Aggressive with Classic Strat Spank

Packed with supercharged performance, this Fender Standard Stratocaster HSH gives you amazing sonic versatility in a stylishly distinctive solidbody electric guitar. Loaded with a Standard Stratocaster single-coil pickup along with two ferocious Blacktop open-coil humbucking pickups, this guitar provides you with heavy and aggressive tones. Guitarists here at Sweetwater were grinning ear-to-ear when they got ahold of this guitar's comfortable modern "C" neck with its fast 9.5" radius fingerboard.

Versatile, super-charged tone

For this Standard Stratocaster HSH solidbody electric guitar, Fender changed out two of its typical Stratocaster single-coil pickups for a pair of Blacktop open-coil humbuckers, giving you loads of tonal variations. You can coax anything from glassy-clean Fender tones to aggressive humbucker tones out of these flexible tone machines. If that wasn't enough, you also get a coil-splitting push-pull switch built into the tone knob, giving you even more tonal versatility. This Standard Stratocaster HSH was designed to be a flexible guitar that's ready for any situation.

Fast and comfortable neck

Leo Fender wasn't a guitar player. In fact, he got his start repairing radios. So he had no idea that guitars weren't supposed to have maple necks. In time, Fender began offering fingerboards such as the pau ferro fretboard, which is found on this Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS. And in keeping with contemporary tastes, this HSS has a more modern C-shaped maple neck with a satin urethane finish for a fast feel.

The Fender Strat — an icon of modern music

First introduced in 1954, the Fender Stratocaster has become an icon of modern music. Rock, country, blues — you'll find a Strat at the heart of just about every musical genre. The distinctive Stratocaster design approaches the realm of modern art. The almost infinitely variable tones are achieved by using a number of combinations of single-coil and humbucking pickups. The roster of notable Stratocaster players includes Dick Dale, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, John Frusciante, Mark Knopfler, Yngwie Malmsteen, and hundreds more.

Fender Standard Stratocaster HSH Features:

  • HSH pickup configuration delivers versatile, super-charged tone
  • Coil-splitting push-pull switch gives you plenty of tonal versatility
  • Alder body provides you with a great-sounding complexity of tones
  • Modern "C" neck profile and pau ferro fretboard serves up outstanding feel
  • 9.5" radius fingerboard with medium jumbo frets lets you bend up high without fretting out

Note: This product is available in the United States only — no international sales.
