Incredible tonal versatility on a distinctly American axe.

The Fender American Standard Series Stratocaster HSS is a perfect electric guitar for players who like big, fat humbucker tone. It features the modern C-shaped maple neck with glossed neck front and satin polyurethane finish on 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. Custom staggered tuning machines eliminate the need for one of the string trees. Staggered pole pieces in the pickups provide balanced output across all strings, and specifically improves the G-string's tone. Two-point trem, rosewood or maple fretboard, and genuine Fender American craftsmanship add up to a Fat Strat style guitar that is a dream come true.

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. They feature excellent 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 American Standard!

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.

Comments about Fender American Standard HSS Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I'm just a hobbyist who's had a guitar around most of my life. I've always dreamed of playing a Strat with a Marshall stack. Well, the stack will have to wait for the time being, but I finally decided to take the plunge on this Stratocaster. Playing it through a Digitech RP 350 effects box into a PA gives me a good idea of what this baby can do, and I am more than pleased. The action is dreamy and I'm amazed at how much easier this guitar is to play than the others I've had through the years, and how much better I am with it. I liked the idea of the extra versatility with the HSS setup, and I wasn't disappointed. The finish is flawless and the Sienna with rosewood fretboard is just plain stunning to look at. It is now my pride and joy.

American Standard HSS


from walterboro, sc

Comments about Fender American Standard HSS Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

The HSS is sweet. Possibly my favorite Fender guitar. Mine came setup almost perfect. Out of the box the action was low and fast. The C neck is awsome putting the strings tight together. Pickups are virtually noiseless, and the finish is flawless. After changing the factory strings my HSS sounds great clean, or distorted with the humbucker. Overall it has all the quality expected from an American Fender. I can't imagine anyone being dissappointed after purchasing this guitar.
