When you want a juicy-looking Strat with killer tone, choose the Fender Standard Strat HSS Plus Top with Locking Tremolo.
Fender Standard Strat HSS Plus Top Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
- Push your amp with this Strat
- An amazing blend of art and engineering
- Alluring stage appeal
This guitar gives you the best of both worlds when it comes to its sound; you get the kind of thick, high-output humbucking tones that drive modern amps, thanks to the bridge humbucker. Single-coils in the middle and neck positions provide a stellar combination of juicy Fender vibe and articulation. Mix and match this pickup array with the Standard Strat HSS Plus Top with Locking Tremolo's 5-way switch, and you're in tone heaven!An amazing blend of art and engineering
While there's no denying the fact that Leo Fender's guitar designs were an amazing blend of art and engineering, it was the erroneously named synchronized tremolo (it's actually a vibrato) that may well have been his most inspired bit of engineering. With it, you could bend notes or even entire chords up or down without throwing the guitar out of tune. Even though Fender has continued to improve upon the tremolo, many players simply prefer the look and feel of the original. In the Fat Strat, there's also a high mass bridge block for improved sustain and overall tone.Alluring stage appeal
At Sweetwater, we're all about tone, but we're not immune to a little stage vanity. As good as it sounds, the Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top delivers impressive visuals to match. When the lights hit this Strat, your fans in the first few rows will be drooling. Especially if they skipped dinner. Look at it this way: as long as you're hurling massive power chords at your audience, you might as well look good doing it. 'Nuff said.
