        Comments about Fender American Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fretboard:

        I think Fender is producing some of the best guitars they have ever produced in the history of the company.

        Fit, finish, playability, and tone is excellent.

        Although the first one I ordered had a problem intonating the 6th (low E) string. I think the bridge was installed a hair to far forward because even with the saddle screwed all the way back the 6th string was still a bit sharp when fretted at the 12th fret.

        But big time kudos to Musicians Friend in making it right. I sent the first one back and they immediately sent me out a replacement model that was PERFECT! Right out of the box it was set up flawlessly. That is the first time I have ever purchased a Fender guitar online that was perfectly set up. Incredible fretwork finishing and overall build quality was amazing, very impressed.

        I have owned several American Strats in the 38 years I have been playing and this 2013 model is the best one yet.

          The guitar sounds great, and feels great. but i expected better craftsmanship from fender. the paint job had lines in it which i could see and feel, some glue appeared to leak out from one of the frets, and i contacted MC before hand to make sure it was the darker tone headstock with gray lettering which they confirmed it was, then of course it wasnt.

            Comments about Fender American Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fretboard:

            I got a 2012 sunburst with the Rosewood fret-board. I got it soon after they came out, even with previous year models in stock and for less moola. Why? Tone.

            The pickups and the rest of the electronics have some really great tone. The neck pickup is not too mushy and the bridge is not too thin. Using the fancy-dancy new tone knob in the 10 position adds a nice, not too thin bite to it. This guitar can bite through any mix I put together in my home project studio without effort. I even get choices.

            Even more impressive to me was how well this one was put together. The Strat style of guitars have a little big of noise to them. The trem-springs in the back, the bridge and light-weight body all contributes to this noise. It's in no small way part of the Strat sound. It's important to have one that doesn't sound all rattley or whatever you want to call that unwanted residual noise. This one and the other 2012 I tried were both put together nice and solidly and did not suffer from an over abundance of residual noise. This was not the case for some of the other ones I tried.

            Next up is the neck and the reason for waiting a year to write a review. The neck is still straight after over a year. That's an 11 month (and going) improvement over my previous cheaper strat model. The dual action truss rod adjustment system is 'da bomb'! This neck is true to begin with, but having this system on it just makes everything much easier to get that perfect feel.

            No fret edge cuts or anything. Tuners all even feeling and function well. The body has a nice resonance to it, which makes having quieter hardware even more important.

            I got everything I expected from it, and waiting until last year got me these great sounding pickups. Nice bonus. Not sure what could have been better.

            Comments about Fender American Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fretboard:

            I love this guitar. It's super light with a fast and lovely neck. It is superbly built and no matter what you do to the tremolo, it stays in tune. What I love most about this guitar is that it's meant for players rather than show offs. This you can tell because the neck is not coated in sticky gloss, the quality is in the electronics and the play-ability (such as staggered tuners). And they use custom shop pickups which sound AMAZING. I can play it for hours. Only cons is that while I understand single coil pickups are noisy, these seem especially so. I also wish the neck pickup worked better with high gain and overdrive/distortion. One surprising thing about this Strat is that the Tone knob adjusts tone for both middle and bridge. This is a mod that I usually do for every Strat I buy, but Fender beat me to it:) This is by far the best Stratocaster I've ever played because it has the player in mind, and there's something about buying a new guitar that makes it feel truly and wholly yours.

            Comments about Fender American Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fretboard:

            Like some reviewers this is the first time I've taken the time to review any product but I felt I wanted to express my opinion. Might help some one make a descision . I purchased 2 of these guitars 2 mo,s ago. Olympic white with rosewood fretboard SSS pickups and mystic red rosewood fretboard hss pickups. I'm an experienced player and have been playing clubs, churches etc. since I was a teenager and I'm now 59. I own giibsons and fenders play through marshall and fender amps so I know tone and quality products. Long story short both these new strats are real quality guitars both totally different in sound. The SSS strat is totally traditional strat mojo ,super easy to play ,raised the strings a little and that's all. Perfect ,can't put it down. The hss model is just as much fun but kickin in the humbucker really gives that extra kick needed on some songs. Both have a lot of pop and really spanky sound. Both stay in tune perfectly after stretching the strings. No plans to change out tuning keys. Kudos to musicians friend. Great service. I bought the strat american special and loved the guitar but didn't like the Texas special pickups. They are really weak compared to these fat 50s that really shine. Returned it no hassle. I would definitely buy this product again and will continue to do buissiness with musicians friend and have bought many products here over the yrs. buy one of these fine instruments and you will be totally satisfied. Great guitars. Real workhorses.

                Comments about Fender American Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fretboard:

                I just bought a MIM strat a month ago. I liked it, except for the terribe sharp edges on the frets. So, I read the reviews on this, and the rolled edges and fretwork caught my eye. This one is what the MIM should be IMHO. The action was high for me. I adjusted it, and I set up the tremelo to float. if I didn't want a tremelo that worked, I would stick with my telecasters. Unlike another reviewer, mine is staying in Tune. I am not Jeff Beck, and I don't use the Trem a lot. But after I gave my choice of strings a good stretching, this guitar stays in tune just fine. I expected a little more from the pickups, but I have no complaints. The funny thing is that I compare it to my Classic Vibe Strat to see how good it is. It's as good. The Squire CV line are amazing for the money. But I wanted better electronics so I went for this guitar knowing I would be getting better electronics. I expected to get a guitar that played nice, sounded nice and looked great. This one does. It's a step up from the MIM strat, but not by much. The frets don't bite me, that's nice. I am keeping my MIM too. I don't have a rave review to give, but I don't have any dissapointments with this guitar. The bottom Tone knob is sticky, really sticky. I don't know why, but its not a deal breaker. I really didn't know what I expected from the Custom Shop Fat 50's. But they are nice and clean, no noise. THis is probably a weak review. But if you want a guitar you don't have to "fix" before it's nice, buy one of these. it's every bit as nice as my Suire, and belive it or not, that's not a slam. This is just as nice as my USA 2000 Lonestar Strat too. I can't put one above the other. I was never in love with the Tesas Specials in the Lonestar, but the SD Humbuckers in it were really nice. I wanted an Olympic White, with the Rosewood fretboard, and I am not dissapointed. I changed out the Aged White knobs and pup covers to Parhment, and I like the look better. So, what am I saying here? Nice guitar that won't disappoint. and it should last the rest of my life. I don't plan on selling or "upgrading" it.It's good as is. Very nice American made Strat.Get one! Enjoy!
