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 main features include an alder body with 21-fret bolt-on neck and 3 single coil pickups. Frets are medium-jumbo which suits most playing styles, and the 9.5 inch radius rosewood fretboard sounds a little warmer than the same guitar with the maple fretboard option. The back of the neck has a super smooth satin finish giving a nice free-flowing playing feel.
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. A tasteful, slightly off-white parchment pickguard and simplistic headstock face bring the looks of the Standard Stratocaster right up to date.
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!
