Coming from one of the highest pedigrees in the world of electric guitars, the Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top with Locking Tremolo takes the guitar manufacturing giant’s Standard Strat model and equips it with a three additions to provide something a little different for discerning fans.
Joining the classic alder body of the Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top with Floyd Rose is a gorgeous flame maple top finished in aged cherry burst, complemented by a 3-ply parchment pickguard. The alder and maple combination work together to guarantee smooth tones, which are projected beautifully by the on board electronics. The classic Strat body is a joy to wield, thanks to its accommodating curves, and deep double-cutaway profile for greater upper fret access.
Fitted to the body is a tinted maple neck, carved to the modern C profile. The neck has been treated with a satin urethane finish to the back, giving the smooth playability that Strat players have loved for decades. Married to the neck is a 9.5" radius, 21-medium jumbo fret maple fingerboard with white dot position inlays. This lies between a synthetic bone nut and another of the guitar’s unique features, a Floyd Rose double-locking two-point tremolo bridge - giving tuning stability to even the most extreme pitch bends, while a '70s-style logo takes pride of place on the headstock. Standard cast sealed tuning machines uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision throughout each and every performance.
The Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top with Locking Tremolo is equipped with a standard humbucking pickup in the bridge position, taking the place of the usual single-coil and offering even more versatility. The smooth output of the humbucker sizzles with energy, and gives greater depth and snarl when you really want to crank things up. A pair of standard single-coil Strat pickups joins this, to offer a humbucker/single-Coil/single-Coil (HSS) pickup configuration. Giving control over the pickups are the usual five-position blade pickup selector, two tone control knobs, and a master volume control knob.
The Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top with Locking Tremolo in aged cherry burst is a truly unique member of the Strat family, offering exceptional tonal versatility, incredibly stable tuning and intonation, and it looks every bit as beautiful as one would expect from a flamed maple top.
