Fender Standard Stratocaster HSH Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • HSH pickup configuration delivers versatile, supercharged tone
  • Maple neck and rosewood fingerboard with modern C-shape and satin urethane finish
  • The Fender Strat - an icon of modern music
HSH pickup configuration delivers versatile, supercharged tone

For this Standard Stratocaster HSH solidbody electric guitar, Fender changed out two of its typical Stratocaster single-coil pickups for a pair of Blacktop open-coil humbuckers, 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 HSH 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 HSH solidbody electric guitar has the maple neck, but also 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 HSH Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • HSH pickup configuration delivers versatile, supercharged tone
  • Coil-splitting push-pull switch gives you plenty of tonal versatility
  • Alder body provides you with a great-sounding complexity of tones
  • Modern C-shaped neck profile serves up outstanding feel
  • 9.5" radius fingerboard with medium-jumbo frets lets you bend up high without fretting out
This Fender Standard Stratocaster HSH solidbody electric guitar delivers everything from mean to clean!
