The icon, enhanced with modern tweaks!
The Fender American Stratocaster Electric Guitar is a Fender icon. Yep, even the Lefty. Juicy upgrades
include a richer, deeper neck tint for a more elegant and expensive appearance. Glossed neck front for improved looks with
satin back for smooth playability. Bent steel Fender saddles with classic look and great tone. String spacing narrowed for
modern playability, saddle height screws re-sized to reduce rough feel, and string slot on saddle elongated to reduce string
friction or breakage. Copper Infused Cast Strat® Bridge Block (steel with copper- 100% metal) for increased mass and improved
tone. This Strat features the original headstock shape but has staggered machine heads losing one string tree and improving
string angle over the nut. Custom staggered pickup magnets improve string-to-string balance and give the G-string better tone.
Cosmetics include parchment/black/parchment pickguard and parchment pickup covers, knobs, and tips.
The return of the
American Standard Series Strat continues Fender's tradition of commitment to the people who play Fender instruments out there
in the real world. Today's American Standard Stratocaster guitars are worthy heirs of their revered ancestors-mindful of player
needs and taking full advantage of modern advances, yet remaining completely true to the elements and spirit that made these
instruments legendary in the first place. Improvements include redesigned bridges, neck and body finishes, and a Fender-exclusive
high-tech molded case. Still there are the beloved hand-rolled fingerboard edges, alnico V pickups and staggered tuning machines
for tone and stability guaranteed to last a lifetime (with its limited lifetime warranty)! So make history with the redesigned
Redesigned American Standard Strat® Bridge
Gives sought-after tone with modern smooth trem travel. Block retains the mass and tone of a vintage bridge
block, but is chamfered for access to deeper dives. Saddles have the classic look and tone, but with modern improvements (spacing,
slot elongation, height screw length).
Bridge Component Specifics
'American Standard' saddles- The original vintage-style Fender bent steel adjustable saddle is one of the components
that give vintage Fenders their tonal 'mojo'. Fender conducted tone comparison tests, and fell in love with them all over
again. They have a wider tonal range and more character many other saddles. Then Fender improved them; narrowing the spacing
to afford more room (and complement the bigger frets and rolled edges), and also elongated the string slot to reduce friction
and string breakage, while improving the string break angle over the primary contact point.
'Tone-fusion' block- A
typical cast bridge block is impregnated with a resin to eliminate 'voids' in the material and to bond it together…
this steel block is infused with copper, which makes the block 100% homogeneous metal. The result is a more musical, higher
mass bridge that has more of that machined-block sound. Fender was also able to keep the same American Series profile for
increased tremolo travel.
