A Juicy-looking Strat with Modern Appointments

The Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top solidbody electric guitar gives you classic Strat playability, gorgeous visuals, and hot-rodded electronics. Loaded with a high-output humbucker at the bridge and single-coils in the neck and middle positions, this Strat delivers tone by the truckload. There's also a vintage-style vibrato onboard for added expression. But it's that stunning figured maple top that'll have your fans' eyes glued to you. When you want a juicy-looking Strat with killer tone, choose the Fender Standard Strat HSS Plus Top.

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
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'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.

Fender Standard Strat HSS Plus Top Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Comfort-contoured alder body with figured maple top
  • Modern C-shaped maple neck with 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard and 21 medium-jumbo frets
  • 1 standard humbucking pickup (bridge)
  • 2 standard single-coil Strat pickups (neck and middle)
  • 5-position blade for pickup switching
  • Vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge/tailpiece
  • 3-ply parchment pickguard; parchment control knobs
Fender's Standard Strat HSS Plus Top is the ideal Strat for modern players!

One Beautiful Guitar

First of all, this is my first stratocaster, All of my guitars are Gibson-esque. 24.5 scale twin humbuckers, I bought this guitar because it was the best looking strat I've ever seen. It looks like a custom shop guitar, the flame top has an incredible 3D effect to it that reminds me of a privave stock PRS. There is even a streak of red in the fret board that matches the finish that adds to the exoctic look of this guitar.Some people have had worries about MIM guitars, Fear not! I have a MIM P-bass special and Geddy Lee Jazz Bass, And Both are superb instruments. This guitar has excellent resonance and is the most comfortable guitar I have. The set up by M, V. at Sweetwater was the best I ever seen on a mail order guitar. I have had it for 3 weeks, and have done only minor tweeks This guitar can do anything except Hardcore metal, Classic Rock from AC/DC to ZZtop No Pantera No Megadeth No SlayerThe trem works well as long as you dont do dive bombs, Subtle Alex Lifeson type warbles will do fine, If you try Dimebag, it will go hoplessly out of tune. Pickups sound great, the neck pickup has fantastic singing quality and the bridge humbucker has just the right amount of drive for many kinds of music. Chickin Pickin to Iron Maiden. Cant go wrong!

Mexican Stratocaster

15 years ago we used to laugh at the Strats coming out of Mexico. Laugh no more my friend. These new instruments are as good as any Strat, built today by anyone. I bought a standard and replaced the pups with originalFender 1957s'. The guitar plays very well and the finish is flawless. The pups originally installed sounded fine, but I had the set of 57s, so I installedthem.
