The Fender American Standard Stratocaster
A Handmade Original
Custom Shop Fat 50's Pickups
Every American Standard instrument includes a touch of the Fender Custom Shop—aka the “Dream Factory”—in the pickups. Custom Shop pickups are specially voiced and carefully constructed to provide optimum tone. They bring the instrument to life with robust, true tone while simultaneously letting both the instrument and player’s personality shine through. From rock to jazz, blues to pop, and everything in between, there’s a set of Custom Shop pickups that are “custom-voiced” for your preferred genre.
The American Standard Stratocaster comes stock with Fender Custom Shop Fat ’50s Strat pickups. The use of Alnico V magnetic pole pieces, Formvar magnetic wire, and period correct cloth wiring deliver the single-coil 1950s Stratocaster sound you know and love. A reverse wound middle position pickup provides hum-cancelation in switch positions 2 and 4 while the hot-rodded wiring design delivers enhanced bass response and an extra shot of 21st-century attitude.
One of the most important parts of a guitar is the neck—not only is it the part handled the most, but it also comes alive with each note, resonating in your fret hand like a living thing. American Standard necks are fast playing and offer easy bending with optimal comfort for new or experienced players alike. The American Standard Stratocaster is available with either maple or rosewood fingerboards. American Standard necks fit any musician’s playing method. Whether you keep your thumb along the side of the neck, keep it behind the neck, or use the ever-popular thumb-over style, we’ve got you covered.
Part of what makes American Standard necks so comfortable to play are the hand rolled edges on the fingerboard. By rolling the edges of the fingerboard, the neck is given a smooth, easy to play, and "worn in" feel to it right out of the box.
Ash and Alder Bodies
Two great tonewoods long used by Fender for the majority of its electric guitar bodies. Alder is noted for bright, balanced and resonant tone with pronounced upper mid-range, excellent sustain and sharp attack. Strong and more dense, ash is used for select American Standard finishes and is notably resonant and sweet sounding, with clearly chiming highs, defined mid-range and strong low end.
Polyurethane Finish with Thinner Undercoat
This finish offers the superior look and durability of polyurethane, applied to a thinner undercoat that lets the instrument’s body wood flex, breathe and resonate more freely for a more unconstrained and natural-sounding voice.
Upgraded Modern Bridges
For superior intonation, sustain and ease of adjustment, American Standard guitars feature modern bridges with upgraded features. This two-point tremolo Stratocaster bridge has bent steel saddles and a special copper-infused block for even greater sustain and more fluid tremolo action.
Staggered tuners present tuning posts of differing heights that increase the break angle of the strings over the nut. On American Standard guitars, the D, G, B, and high E string tuning posts are set lower than the A and low-E strings, creating a greater string angle that improves performance and helps eliminate buzz.
There's No Substitute For Handmade.
More than 100: That’s how many steps are invested in every American Standard instrument, all of which are made fresh daily at our Corona, Calif., factory. Features and tone aside, there’s simply no denying the love, attentiveness and passion invested in every single aspect of an American Standard instrument. The expressive flexibility of that two-point American Standard Stratocaster tremolo bridge? It’s a direct result of meticulous hand shaping and polishing. The resonance of a smooth alder or ash body, set off by a glistening polyurethane finish? Each one was dutifully applied with care so as to ensure each one embodies pure Fender feel and tone. Your American Standard instrument is an investment for life because we’re invested in its creation every step of the way—and that’s what truly matters.
