The Standard Strat - Timeless Quality!
Maybe more than any other electric guitar, the Fender Standard Stratocaster solidbody electric is the quintessential guitar. What more do we need to say about the versatility of an instrument that was adopted by the guitarists of both Lawrence Welk and Pink Floyd? The Fender Standard Stratocaster is where the tradition began and still carries on today. Featuring a fast-action maple neck, comfort-contoured body, three single-coil pickups, and a synchronized tremolo, the Fender Standard Stratocaster has triumphed as both a working musician's tool and as an international cultural icon.Fender Standard Stratocaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
- A timeless classic at an affordable price
- The trademark Strat sound
- Fast playing modern "C" shape maple neck
Though the original Stratocaster was first introduced more than 50 years ago, it's unquestionably more popular now than ever! It's also available today in more configurations than Leo Fender ever dreamed of when he first designed it. The Standard Stratocaster combines the guitar's sleek, elegant lines with the perfect blend of old and new features. You start with the classic custom contoured alder body in a polyurethane finish, then add a 3-ply pickguard, knobs and pickup covers. Best of all, you get all of the ageless vibe without a hefty price tag attached!The trademark Strat sound
The original Strat had three single-coil pickups, so it was able to produce sounds that no other guitar could deliver, particularly once players discovered they could lodge the 3-position blade switch in those "in-between" positions to access neck/middle and bridge/middle pickup combinations. The Fender Standard Stratocaster comes with three sweet-sounding single-coil pickups but with a 5-position blade switch, making it a snap to access those glossy Strat sounds with a simple flick of the finger.Fast playing modern "C" shape maple neck
Leo Fender wasn't afraid to think outside the box when it came to guitar designs. In the 1950s and well into the 1970s, the blond, natural maple neck became almost synonymous with Fender guitars. The Standard Stratocaster keeps the trademark maple neck and adds a maple fingerboard, a comfortable modern "C" shape, and a 9.5-inch radius. In keeping with contemporary player preferences, the back of this fast playing neck is finished with a smooth satin polyurethane.Fender Standard Stratocaster Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
