The Fender Standard Stratocaster might be where it all starts for Fender, but the all the ingredients for a legendary Fender Stratocaster tone great guitar are right here. The Fender Standard Strat has been a long-established model in the universe of electric guitars, and this upgrade has everything you would expect. Powered by the usual single-coil pickups and featuring a new, upgraded bridge, you are guaranteed a full-bodied, resonant Fender voice.

Outstanding build quality

The Fender Standard Series is what we have come to know and love as the most affordable Fender guitars in the range. Built in Mexico with a level of craftsmanship and quality control that defy their price-point, these guitars are more than capable of producing professional results. With the official Fender 70's style logo on the headstock, you know you are playing the real thing and have become part of the worldwide Fender family!

The main features include a traditional alder body with 21-fret bolt-on neck and 3 single coil pickups. Frets are medium-jumbo size which suits most playing styles, and the 9.5 inch radius maple fretboard adds just a subtle extra top-end bite to the sound compared to the same guitar with the rosewood fretboard option. The back of the neck has a super smooth satin finish giving a nice free-flowing playing feel.

Upgraded components

Fender improved the synchronized tremolo bridge from an older design to have a new "high-mass" steel block underneath to add stability when using the whammy bar, and overall sustain to the guitar sound. The electronics are also shielded to reduce unwanted low-level background noise. Accompanying the three single-coil pickups are the usual Volume and Tone controls as well as a 5-way pickup toggle switch to shape your sound. A tasteful, slightly off-white parchment pickguard and simplistic headstock face bring the looks of the Standard Stratocaster right up to date.

Customer Reviews
Excellent guitar
Posted on 03/01/2016 by Matt I love this guitar! The iconic shape and the sunburst looks really make it one of a kind and the guitar itself feels and plays fantastic. Admittedly, I'm still a beginner but do have a musical background in playing the piano. Having said that, this guitar really keeps me playing and practising. As such, with a (still) reasonable price tag and easy handling it may actually count as a 'beginners' guitar.

I bought it together with a Fender Champion 40 and play it either plugged in or (for practising sessions) 'unplugged'. The latter is great for not annoying your fellow flatmates. The shape of the fretboard makes it really easy to handle, which is great for (endlessly ;o) practising chord progressions.

Plugged into the Champion 40 it sounds fantastic. I've got it for a little bit over nine months now and I'm still discovering new settings and sounds.

I bought it from Dawsons at Manchester (Piccadilly Gardens). Although I was pretty sure I was going to by the Fender MM Stratocaster, James did a brilliant job in running me through the basics (bear in mind that this was my first electric guitar). At the time, this particular model was out of stock but after some wizardry, James was able to order one for me within a week. Nice!

The only thing that I could see as a small niggle is that my model has a fret buzz on the low E string. However, after some research it seems that this may not be uncommon feature of electric guitars in the first place and is only perceptible when playing the guitar unplugged. Hooked up to the amp, it is not noticeable. Given the price of the guitar an acceptable compromise I believe.

Overall, a choice I will never regret I have made!
