The new American Standard Stratocaster is a fine addition to the already towering legacy of the Strat that only continues to grow. This Stratocaster features an alder body with the legendary ‘comfort contour’ design that was way ahead of its time. The body also features a thinner finish which allows the wood to ‘breathe’ and improve resonance and tone.

The body is outfitted with a trio of full-sounding Fender Custom Shop Fat ’50s pickups that deliver those clear, bell-like, bright Strat tones that were the driving force behind an endless list of guitar legends. The control panel features the reliable master volume/two tone-knob configuration, along with the Delta-tone™ no-load circuit. The no-load tone pot works like a standard tone knob from positions 1-9, but at 10, it is removed from the wiring completely so that you get the full, unadulterated sonic output of your pickup. It means more output and more treble without using a booster pedal or active controls. A parchment colored pickguard, and Aged plastic pickup covers and knobs add an attractive, vintage vibe to this modern day classic.

The new American Standard Stratocaster is available with either a 1-piece maple neck or a maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard. The neck is carved into a modern C-shape profile with rich, deep neck tint, glossed neck front with satin back and boasts 22 medium jumbo frets on a slightly flatter 9.5” fingerboard radius. The flatter radius facilitates easier, cleaner string bending and faster action. Hand rolled edges will give this Stratocaster a comfortable, worn-in feel.

Chrome hardware includes a Fender 2-point synchronized tremolo bridge with a high-mass bridge block for increased tone and sustain. A set of Fender Deluxe Staggered Cast/Sealed Tuning Keys improve the angle of the strings over the nut and completes the package. Finally, a protective, Fender hardshell case is included along with a cable, strap, and polishing cloth.

        Comments about Fender American Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with SKB Case:

        This is my first Electric Guitar that I had bought Feb 1 2014. While I was doing my research in finding the guitar for me, It came down to 3 guitars. All Fender: Deluxe Lone Star, Fender American Special, then the American Standard.

        Quality wise, Tonality, and Features all pointed to the American Standard. Watching countless video demos. I knew what I wanted. I'm happy I made this choice.

        When I came into the store. I brought my friend who is a guitar player. I had him help me test out the guitars. We tried the Mystic Blue color with a Maple Fretboard, then we tried the Jade Pearl with a Rosewood Fretboard. I personally like the Rosewood fretboard. I ended up ordering a brand new Mystic Blue Fender American Standard with Rosewood Fretboard.

        I came in to pick up my guitar a few days later. My friend came with me again because I realized I need to get an amp for my guitar. (Showing you how Novice I am). The customer rep brought out my guitar, right out of the shipping box. The guitar came with it's own case, strap, amp cable, info on registering the instrument. I opened the case and there was my guitar, smelling like fresh paint, I decided to inspect the guitar. I noticed that the metal plaque, on the back of the guitar, had the 60th anniversary of the Strat design. The ones i played and tested the other day only had the plaque that said Fender, which I thought was really cool.

        I am planning on keeping this in great condition, so hopefully the value will appreciate over time. I know this will have sentimental value to me, so I know I won't ever sell it.

            Comments about Fender American Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with SKB Case:

            My guitar-hoarding friend complimented the tone of this guitar.
            By "No Spare Vibrato Spring", I am referring to the tiny one inside the vibrato arm hole. When it fell out onto the floor the 1st time, it took me an hour to figure out what it was and where to return it to. With the vibrato arm out, it falls to the floor and the owner's manual doesn't mention it. I need a spare spring more than I need a spare pick or a spare string.

            The guitar I've been waiting for

            By 

            from Nebraska

            Comments about Fender American Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with SKB Case:

            I've owned several guitars over 20 years and this is my favorite. I've had yamaha's, charvels, mexi strats and custom shops and this guitar beats them all by far. To start, it's has incredible finish and workmanship. I got the 3 colr sunburst with maple fretboard, and it is stunning- better than the pictures. Love the fretboard- best I've played. It stays in tune and sound great! I play it through a korg ax3000g and it sounds incredible. These 2012's are strats at their best. Definitley worth the money !!
