The Made In Mexico (MIM) Fender Standard Stratocaster electric guitar is, arguably, one of the finest models the company has ever produced, and - quite possibly - one of the bargains of the century.

Finding its way into the hands of some of guitar's biggest names - Jeff Beck, Clapton, Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan to name but a few -, the Stratocaster has straddled genres, seen musical movements come and go, been at the centre of musical history, and set the standard that many have followed.

Strat Style

The body is shaped to the sleek Strat body shape, with ergonomically designed contours that guarantee a playing feel that has often been imitated by other manufacturers, but they never manage to do it quite as well as Fender. The body is constructed from alder, a tonewood that has been favoured by Fender for decades. Alder benefits from the enviable combination of being light in weight, whilst retaining a well-balanced tone with thick mids and rumbling lows. The highs offer a subtle fizz without becoming harsh.

This model has been completed in candy apple red, which in turn has been protected by a coating of polyester to preserve the finish for as long as possible. A tasteful 3-ply parchment pickguard protects the top around the pickups and control knobs.

Fast-playing Neck Design

The maple neck offers a supple yet rigid playing support. Shaped to the modern "C" profile, both new players and seasoned pros will appreciate the ease with which this shape allows you to perform. The satin finish on the rear of the neck prevents any tackiness from affecting your movement during performances, whilst the gloss finish to the front prevents untimely wear from affecting the maple.

Married to the neck is a sumptuous 21-fret maple fingerboard. The fingerboard radius is shaped to the customary Strat 9.5" radius, giving the smooth shape that we've all come to know and love. Executing speedy licks across a Stratocaster neck is one of life's joys, and with this beauty you're guaranteed to have years of fun.

Versatile Pickups

Three standard single-coil Strat pickups are fitted in the neck, middle and bridge (offset) positions respectively. Control comes in the form of a 5-position pickup selector switch, as well as tone controls for the neck and middle pickups, and a master volume pot. The simplified setup belies the complex range of tonal options at your fingertips. Whatever style of music you play, the setup in the Standard Strat enables you to nail the perfect tone with ease.

The electronics are also shielded to reduce unwanted low-level background noise, so if you play high-gain music such as punk, rock, or metal, you can rest assured that noise generated by the pickups will be kept to an absolute minimum. In keeping with the overall finish of the Stratocaster, the switch tips and control knobs are completed in a parchment finish.

Gig-ready Hardware

Fender has improved the 6-saddle vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge, giving the Strat's sustain even more power. The vintage-style tremolo arm enables you to inject subtle vibrato whenever you wish. Intonation is maintained solidly, whilst the standard cast/sealed tuning machines maintain tuning integrity with absolute precision.

The Fender Standard Stratocaster is perfect for those starting out, those who need a solid and reliable gigging partner, anyone looking for a versatile recording tool, or anyone who wants to add an incredible Strat to their collection.
