The Fender American Standard Stratocaster electric guitar has been a one of the most coveted guitars since its introduction over half a century ago. With its distinctive contoured lines and readily identifiable body shape, the Strat style has often been copied but no one does it quite like Fender. Fitted with a pair of powerful humbucking pickups, this model retains the smooth feel that we've all come to know and love, with a greater emphasis on unleashing the raw energy of the Strat.
Lightweight, Tonally-Rich Alder Body
The slender alder body adheres to the classic Strat design, resting comfortably against the body as you play. Though it may be lightweight, alder is renowned for producing a lush tonal palette with a careful balance between lows, mids and high - something that Fender recognised long ago and is the reason they continue to use alder after all these years. You can rest assured that the lovely aesthetic will remain true for years to come thanks to the slender protective coating of gloss polyester.
In keeping with tradition, a supple maple neck has been fitted to the body and shaped to the delightfully easy to navigate Modern "C" profile. Married to the neck is a responsive rosewood fingerboard, home to 22 medium jumbo frets that are a joy to play along. The neck is finished in satin urethane along the back, which helps to prevent it feeling sticky or tacky during energetic performances.
A Break from Tradition
Where this model breaks from tradition is with the carefully selected dual twin head vintage humbucking pickups, complete with stylish chrome covers. The fat tones produced by the humbuckers emphasise the mid to low-end grunt of the alder, with searing highs singing out with the utmost clarity. Control comes in the form of an easy to use 3-position blade that allows you to single out either pickup, or combine both for a fuller tone.
Classic Strat Style, Unique Tonal Flavour
If you're looking for the classic Strat style, with a unique tonal flavour, then the Fender American Standard Strat HH electric guitar is for you. Do not underestimate the tonal versatility of this beauty, as you won't be disappointed. Not only that but you will also receive a hardcase to protect your guitar on the move, which has been formed-fitted for a snug fit..
