For this Standard Stratocaster HSS solidbody electric guitar, Fender changed out one of its typical Stratocaster single-coil pickups for a Blacktop open-coil humbucker, giving you loads of tonal variations. You can coax anything from classic glassy-clean Fender tones to aggressive, throaty humbucker tones out of these flexible tone machines. If that wasn't enough, you also get a coil-splitting push-pull switch built into this guitar's tone knob, giving you even more tonal versatility. This Standard Stratocaster HSS was designed to be a flexible guitar that's ready for any situation.Maple neck and rosewood fingerboard with modern C shape and satin urethane finish
Leo Fender wasn't a guitar player. In fact, he got his start repairing radios. So he had no idea that guitars weren't supposed to have maple necks. In time, those blonde maple necks and fingerboards became a Fender trademark, though the company eventually offered rosewood fingerboards on most of its models. This Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS solidbody electric guitar has the maple neck, but it adds the rosewood fingerboard for a warmer, more traditional sound, look, and feel. In keeping with contemporary tastes, this Strat has a more modern C-shaped maple neck with a satin urethane finish.The Fender Strat - an icon of modern music
First introduced in 1954, the Fender Stratocaster has become an icon of modern music. Rock, country, blues - you'll find a Strat at the heart of just about every musical genre. The distinctive Stratocaster design approaches the realm of modern art. The almost infinitely variable tones are achieved by using a number of combinations of single-coil and humbucking pickups. The roster of notable Stratocaster players includes surf rock pioneer Dick Dale, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, John Frusciante, Mark Knopfler, Yngwie Malmsteen, and hundreds more.Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
