A classic through-and-through, the Strat is the epitome of rock and roll; one of those products that everyone instantly recognises as a class-leader. The 2012 Fender American Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar is part of a long lineage, which although seemingly indistinguishable from the model that first made its name, has been tweaked over the years to provide an even more beautifully crafted instrument. Over the last iteration, the 2012 model has been upgrade with vintage-looking aged plastic parts and a set of three Fender Custom Shop Fat ’50s pickups, providing a fuller sound than ever before, whilst retaining the core tone the Strat is recognised for.
The alder body of the Fender American Standard Stratocaster has been crafted to the iconic shape and finished with urethane. Bolted into the body is a maple neck, carved to the highly playable modern "C" profile. Atop this lies a 22 medium-jumbo fretted, 9.5” radius rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, found between a 1.685" synthetic nut and a 2-point synchronized tremolo bridge with bent steel Saddles.
An upgrade found on this 2012 version of the Fender American Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar is the three Custom Shop Fat '50s single-coil Strat pickups. With enhanced bass response, without any harsh mid-range, these hotter pickups offer a fuller, warmer sound than standard pickups. The middle pickup is also reverse wound to offer hum cancelling in pickup selection positions 2 & 4.
