The Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar delivers traditional Strat tone, feel, and style, without the vintage price tag.

The Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar stays true to many of the original specs that put the Strat on the map in 1954. This Stratocaster features an alder body with the legendary 'comfort contour' design that was way ahead of its time. The body is outfitted with a trio of single-coil pickups that deliver those clear, bell-like, bright Strat tones that were the driving force behind an endless list of guitar legends. A parchment colored pickguard adds an old school vibe to this modern day classic.

This updated Standard Stratocaster is available with a gloss finish maple neck in either a 1-piece solid maple or with a rosewood fingerboard. Standard appointments include 21 medium jumbo frets on a slightly flatter 9.5" fingerboard radius. The flatter radius facilitates easier, cleaner string bending and faster action. A vintage-style synchronized tremolo with a high-mass bridge block for increased tone and sustain completes the package. See for yourself why the Stratocaster is the standard by which all other solidbody electrics are judged by. Case not included.

    Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    This guitar looks very good, and the build quality really seems first rate. The Mexico Fender facility is owned and operated by Fender, not a contract supplier. This gave me the confidence to buy the product. The light strings and 9.5" radius neck make it easy to play, and the sound seems very good to me. It's all standard Stratocaster, so all the common upgrades will fit. You can customize as much as you like.

        Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        Have owned other more expensive Strats over the years. Been exclusively a Tele player for many years. Got the hots for a Strat, went to Sam Ash and found a Standard in (dark) Midnight Wine. Beautiful guitar with great finish including satin finish on the back of the neck.

        Also played American Standard Strat but liked the Standard just as well. Why pay more than twice the amount. I own it and play it through a 1953 Fender Tweed Deluxe. heaven.

        Great price for a solid Stratocaster! These are very well made instruments with the fit and finish being outstanding at this or any price. Great playability and fantastic Strat tones!

          You can't beat these for the price. Really well built and excellent sound quality too. Comparable to instruments at a much higher price point as well. I am a Sam Ash reviewer.

            Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

            I bought this MIM Stratocaster to take to my condo in Mexico and leave it there. Imagine my surprise when I found that I like playing this guitar more than my custom shop Strat? In fact I told my wife, I'll have to bring this guitar back. I like it too much to leave it for months. And now I'm wondering why keep the custom shop at all. Hard to admit, but it's true -- and maybe I should be happy. Ok, I am happy. And - -Sam Ash is fabulous. Great prices, great service and easy to work with. I first bought a Les Paul I didn't like and they took it back without a whimper. I'll be back as soon as I decide what I want next.

                This was my first guitar when I began my journey with the guitar an it still sounds as good as it was when it was purchased brand new. It carry's a bright sound an fits every genre of music. It has a great feel an easy to move up and down the neck.

                        I have been playing guitar for 5 years now, and this was my first big name guitar, i love it. it has great sound and plays even better distorted. it has single coils so dont expect a deep humbucking sound, if you want that buy a Blacktop H/H strat, a H/S/S Strat, or a Blacktop Jag. overall theres nothing bad i can say about this guitar
