  • Description

    The Fender Standard HSS 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. This Stratocaster offers a slight departure from the traditional 3 single-coil pickup schematic by adding a high output Fender Humbucker in the bridge position. You still get those clear, bell-like, bright Strat tones that were the driving force behind an endless list of guitar legends, but you also get the added option of a scorching bridge humbucker that will meet the demands of the modern hard rock players. 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 HSS Electric Guitar:

    I've owned this guitar (brown sunburst, maple neck) for a year and a half now. Since then my other guitars have seen less and less use. The keyboard player in my band asked if I had sold my LP studio. Nope. Just love the action on the Strat neck. The playability of the neck on this guitar is fantastic. I gave the truss rod nut a 3/8 turn after I first got it and the action is low, fast, and perfect. No buzzing but the strings are very close making it very easy to play. I think the fret-board is a little flatter than the US made Strats. Overall the guitar has a very classic look and mine has a perfect finish, no blemishes at all. I have had no problem with the electronics. It's a great guitar. Every now and then a guitar snob will ask me if it's US made. Who cares? I'm there for the audience.
