Fender Standard Stratocaster Plus Top Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Lightweight alder body with gorgeous figured maple top
  • Synchronized tremolo with high-mass bridge block
  • Three standard, single-coil Strat pickups
Lightweight alder body with gorgeous figured maple top

The Fender Standard Stratocaster Plus Top features a lightweight, comfort-contoured alder body which has actually changed very little since the first Strats rolled off the production lines in 1954. However, this new version actually has shielded body cavities for reduced hum and quieter operation than you'd get with a vintage Strat. And something else you won't find on a vintage Strat: a luscious figured maple top that not only looks drop-dead gorgeous, but it also enhances the tone, adding snap and sustain to your notes.

Synchronized tremolo with high-mass bridge block

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. The Standard Stratocaster Plus Top comes with that vintage-style trem but adds a high-mass bridge block for improved sustain and tone.

Three standard, single-coil Strat pickups

The Stratocaster was the first production line guitar with three pickups, and it's no surprise that this basic configuration is just as popular today as it was in 1954. Your new Standard Stratocaster comes from the factory with three standard Strat single-coil pickups with vintage-style ceramic magnets. Way back in the '50s and '60s, players had to carefully fiddle with their 3-position blade switch to get those in between pickup combinations. Don't worry. Your Strat comes with a modern 5-way blade switch for instant access to all the cool Strat tones.

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

The Best

Amazed by this guitar. Setup was just perfect right out of the box. Pickups are great through a Blackstar ht1r. Plays like a dream. Sweet water changed the pick guard to a tortoise shell and the accessories to aged white for me. This guitar looks so cool it is unbelievable. Been playing for six hours straight and can't put it down. This is just awesome. Sales rep Tyler is the best!
