Fender Standard Strat HSS Plus Top with Locking Tremolo Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • Push your amp with this Strat

  • Built for today's player
  • Alluring stage appeal
Push your amp with this Strat

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!

Built for today's player

Fender built the Standard Strat HSS Plus Top with Locking Tremolo with modern players in mind. You'll love the Floyd Rose licensed locking vibrato, which gives you amazing tuning stability. Other less visible (yet very important) modern tweaks include shielded body cavities for lower-noise operation and medium jumbo frets for comfortable, accurate fretting even at blazing speeds. The C-shaped neck gives you a decidedly modern feel to facilitate those fast fingerboard runs.

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 with Locking Tremolo 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.

  • Comfort-contoured alder body with figured maple top

great guitar

pros; stays in tune, fast neck , many different tones, looks great , smooth fret ends. cons: none.
Music background: hobbyist


This guitar represents excellent HSS Fender tone. Smooth & creamy a "must buy!" I've been playing with some EMG's on my other guitars for many years, and this humbucker brings up the classic rock tones! This axe is so versatile! The photos in this website do represent what you get, so buy with confidence. One nano drawback, but definitely not a show stopper at all, and this is a personal preference too: The perfect action is when the Floyd rose is fully flat (horizontal) but unfortunately there is no space under to pull the wammy bar up, so no high pitch pulls.

great value

Pros:A Strat with a locking tremolo and a humbucker for under 750 bucks!I was surprised at the quality of the workmanship when I received this one. I had an American made 70's Strat, and I believe that the carving on the body and the finish on this one are better. The flame maple top is beautiful. The neck is fast and very playable; frets are finished well and it plays great everywhere up and down the fretboard.ConsThe tremolo system doesn't always stay in tune under heavy thrashing - I suspect this is a lower end unit from Floyd-Rose. The pick-ups are too bright and a bit "thin" sounding for my taste,but they're not bad. The molding on the selector switch isn't trimmed well (has some annoying flash), and the volume and tone knobs are kind of cheesy... typical Fender.The Bottom Line:All things considered I give it four stars. It's great for rock, very aggressive when paired with an amp with the right gain and crunch. The nasally tone from the stock pick-ups could be right for old time country, and the clean tone is good.With a few choice upgrades this guitar could be as good as any at twice the price. If you're looking for something in this price range you can't go wrong. Great value!

they forgot to route behind the tremolo

Played it at the store. The neck and everything about it was precision made. But they left a whole section of this model unrouted beneath the floyd rose. If you try the black model, there is proper routing underneath the floyd rose to allow it to float. The plus top model sucks. The lack of routing means that your floyd rose is no longer a Floating Tremolo. Theres a big chunk of wood preventing you from being able to sharpen the notes with your bar.basically, it works like a regular fender tremolo at this point. Worthless to a floyd rose player. Why on earth fender would correctly route the plain black model, yet forget to do it on the more expensive plus top confounds logic.
