The Iconic Stratocaster

When many people think of an electric guitar, this is the one that leaps to mind. The Stratocaster is one of the world's most popular guitars and is an elegantly versatile creation that is both a musical and cultural touchstone. Not long after Fender revolutionised music with the Telecaster and the Precision Bass, in 1954 they debuted the Stratocaster and it quickly became universally regarded as the archetypal electric guitar. Sleek and stylish aesthetics, smooth playing and tonally versatile, at the heart the Stratocaster remains a fantastic instrument - producing unmistakable sound with a timeless design. A first choice among players worldwide, there is simply nothing that sings, screams, whispers, moans, roars, rocks and rolls like a Fender Stratocaster.

Alder Body & Maple Neck

The Fender American Standard Stratocaster features a lightweight alder body which produces a resonant and balanced tone with plenty of clarity and body. Fender have used alder as their tonewood of choice for electric guitars since the 1950s as the balanced response and slight upper middle definition makes it perfect for rock and blues playing.

A comfortable neck profile is important when playing a guitar, and the American Standard Stratocaster features a popular C-Shaped profile. This particular type of neck profile leaves a small pocket of space between the palm of the players hand and the neck of the guitar, allowing more versatility along the maple fingerboard. It also provides a comfortable playing style enabling you to play for longer.

Twin Head Humbuckers

This classic guitar comes equipped with a pair of twin head humbuckers that deliver a warm tone with plenty of headroom and harmonics. Each pickup is constructed using a combination of Alnico 2 and 5 magnets for the neck and bridge respectively. In addition, these versatile pickups also feature a thick aluminum base plate for decreased magnetic interference, providing you with a clean tone that can be used in any application. Achieving the perfect tone is easy with the American Standard, as control options include a 3-way position blade, independent volume controls, and a master tone control.
