A Hot-rodded, Modern Workhorse Strat
A high-output, rod-rodded incarnation of a modern workhorse, this versatile FENDER┬« American Standard Stratocaster┬« HSS solidbody electric guitar is a time-tested classic. You can coax an unbelievable amount of bark and bite out of this muscular electric guitar’s Custom Shop Fat ’50s single-coil pickups, while its Diamondback humbucking bridge pickup blazes with increased output and warmth, lending an aggressive, harmonically complex quality to your playing. The Strat┬« aficionados at Sweetwater quickly took notice of the finishing touches on this electric guitar, like hand-rolled fingerboard edges, staggered tuning machines, and aged knobs and pickups covers. If you like it hot, you can’t go wrong with this Fender American Standard Stratocaster HSS solidbody electric guitar!

Fender has fitted this American Standard Stratocaster HSS solidbody electric guitar with a pair of vintage-flavored Custom Shop Fat ’50s single-coil pickups in the neck and middle positions, plus a hot Diamondback humbucker at the bridge. Fat ’50s single-coil pickups, previously reserved for Fender’s top-line Custom Shop guitars, will embue your playing with the essence of classic Fender tone, while Diamond humbuckers are designed as the ideal complement for single-coil pickups. With this American Standard Strat HSS, you can conjure all that spank ‘n’ sparkle for chimey, almost-clean rhythm work, then shift into high gear, deploying the humbucker for your blistering leads. What a potent tone potion!

2-point synchronized tremolo allows you to twist, bend, and dive
While there’s no denying the fact that Leo Fender’s guitar designs were an amazing blend of art and engineering, it was the erroneously named synchronized tremolo (it’s actually a vibrato) that may well have been his most inspired bit of engineering. With it you could bend notes or even entire chords up or down without throwing the guitar out of tune. Even though Fender has continued to improve upon the tremolo, many players simply prefer the look and feel of the original. This Fender American Standard Stratocaster HSS solidbody electric guitar sports a 2-point synchronized tremolo, along with bent steel saddles, allowing you to twist, bend, and dive with complete abandon.

Thinner body undercoat for optimal body resonance
An undercoat serves to give the paint a smooth surface to adhere to so you have a nice-looking finish. The thicker the undercoat, the more glass-like the finish, but the more constricted the guitar’s body wood, which could affect tone. Fender has switched to a new undercoat that is thinner, and that allows the body to flex and resonate more, while retaining the cosmetic advantages of an undercoat. The result? You get the tough-as-nails resilience of a modern poly finish, with tonal characteristics that are more in line with classic laquer finishes. With this Fender American Stratocaster HSS solidbody electric guitar, you get the best of both worlds.
