The prestigious Fender American Standard Stratocaster needs no introduction but we'll give it one anyway. Introduced over half a century ago, it as been adopted by many legends due to its playability - helped massively by its contoured and shapely body profile, a design that is often copied but never captured as sweetly as a true Fender -, its energy, and its sublime tonal offerings. Traditionally sporting a three single-coil pickup arrangement, this particular model has been fitted with a pair of powerful humbucking pickups, which manage to effortlessly retain the smooth Strat tones, with a greater emphasis on unleashing the raw energy of its tonewoods.
The divine alder body adheres to the classic Strat design, resting comfortably as you play - whether you prefer to hang it high or swing it low. Though it may be lightweight, alder is renowned for producing a lush tonal palette with an intricate 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. Finished in stylish and uncompromising black that is complimented by a 3-ply parchment pickguard, 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 developing a sticky or tacky feel during energetic performances.
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.
If you're looking for the classic Strat style, with a unique tonal flavour, then the Fender American Standard Strat HH electric guitar is absolutely perfect. Do not underestimate the tonal versatility of this beauty, as you won't be disappointed. Not only that but you will also receive a hardshell case to protect your guitar on the move.
