Description

Details

The Fender Standard Stratocaster is, as the name suggests, the ‘standard’ incarnation of the legendary Stratocaster guitar. This classic instrument was introduced in the mid ‘50s, and is often described as being ‘perfect at first attempt’. The fact that the models that are available today are nearly identical to those early versions is a testament to just how ‘right’ Leo Fender got this design.

Finely crafted Mexican Stratocaster

The Standard is one of the most affordable Stratocasters that Fender makes, but has all the hallmarks of this classic. The double cutaway body is constructed from solid alder, and shaped to the famously ergonomic, curved, contoured design. This is finished in Candy Apple Red urethane.

The neck follows Fender’s timeless blueprint, too. This is a bolt-on maple design, shaped to a modern ‘C’ profile and finished with satin urethane. This reduces the ‘stickiness’ sometimes experienced with gloss necks. A pau ferro fingerboard is fitted to this, with simple dot inlays. The Strat neck is comfortable, and highly playable, with a ‘just-so’ feel that you rarely experience on other guitars.

Three single-coil pickups are equipped, with a 5-way selector switch, with tone controls and a master volume. Via this simple arrangement, a huge range of tones are possible- from woody, punchy tones from the neck pickup, to powerful, barking bridge tones, and everything between. Versatility has always been one of the Strat’s greatest strengths.

A vintage-style tremolo bridge provides the means to add vibrato and other pitch effects, and a contrasting parchment scratch plate completes the iconic look.

Fender Standard Stratocaster is a great, affordable example of this classic guitar design. Versatile, great to play and great sounding, everyone can find a use for a Stratocaster.
