Along with the Tele the Fender Standard Stratocaster is the mainstay of the Fender line up. The Strat is THE electric guitar that everyone has heard about, be they guitarist or not, and its obvious why. At the forefront of every important era in the history of rock, the Strat has been with us since 1954 and has made the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Mark Knopler household names, while continuing to grace the hands of today’s artists.
The Fender Standard Stratocaster is the best way to get your hands on a little piece of history whilst still keeping a bit of cash back for a decent amp. This guitar is popular thanks to its supreme playability and versatility in an ageless package that looks and sounds as good today as it did at its inception.
Three single-coil pickups in bridge, middle and neck positions paired with a five-position blade, master volume/neck and middle pickup controls gives you finite control over your sound. To further control your sound the Fender Standard Stratocaster comes supplied with a high-mass bridge with vintage styled tremolo/whammy bar for string bending (perfect for metal styles).
Also of importance is the Fender Standard Stratocaster guitars comfortable “C” shape neck profile, that’s great for most styles of play. The maple neck is also satin finished at the back and gloss finished at the front to really add to the guitar’s playing comfort.

The Fender Standard Stratocaster is finished with a ’70s-style headstock logo, an elegant nod to its past.
