      The American Standard Stratocaster HSS is the same great best-selling, high-output hot-rodded guitar it has always been, and now it’s upgraded with aged plastic parts and full-sounding Fender Custom Shop Fat ’50s neck and middle pickups in addition to the Diamondback humbucking bridge pickup. The latest incarnation of the modern workhorse Strat with an added measure of muscle, it’s now more graceful and powerful than ever. Includes Fender Tolex case.

        I've had many guitars over the years and always watned a Strat but never bought one until now. I am very pleased with this guitar. It did require some setup to meet my personal preferences and once dialed in it preforms every bit as well as I hoped for.

        The neck is very comfortable and easy to play. Im not used to the more rounded radius but it did not present any problems.

        The neck and middle pickups deliver that great classic Strat sound the neck being my favorite. The Diamondback humbucker in the bridge while not high output does deliver some great tone and I can get some good crunch when overdriven. Switching to a lead chanel on my amp yields some great sustain and plenty of sear.

        Overall the guitar has a great feel with wonderful tone and the jade pearl metallic paint job is superb. I find myself spending hours playing this guitar, very happy with it.

        First, the bad. Specifically, substandard quality control; not what you would expect from an American Stratocaster that costs $1k +

        1) Black case has white styrofoam (glue?) stuck onto the sides. Not a huge deal, but not what you would expect for something brand new.

        2) Guitar looks like it may have been a display? Tuning machines were covered with greasy finger prints and very fine scratches in the top coast of the finish. Sure, this is fine after I've played the thing, just a little taken aback that this was the condition upon removing it from the case.

        3) Beautiful neck - would be perfect if it wasn't for some odd imperfections on the back of the neck that were "filled" with extra polyurethane. Doesn't effect playability - just a nuisance when my thumb rubs across it.

        4) Odd noise from the tremolo. Resolved upon screwing in the tremolo arm.

        5) Tremolo is not at all set-up in the factory. Order extra springs as it doesn't function well as a "floating" trem.

        I know this is a lot of negative, but with spending this kind of money on a brand new guitar; I expect more. I haven't had this issue with other new guitars from other manufacturers.

        On a positive note, the maple neck/fingerboard is absolutely wonderful (aside from the finish imperfection I noted above). This pickups are better than I expected as well, but still falls a little short of the Seymour Duncan JB/TB I have grown accustomed to.

        It's a stratocaster, so you're getting a great guitar, but I urge Fender to put a little more care into these.

        Purchased this as a gift for my son. He says absolutely love it, the best guitar I've ever owned, easy fingering, back of the neck is smooth and can't believe what a difference this guitar makes. Makes me sound like a professional.

              have to admit i was a bit leary about buying a guitar on line. especially a nice one. cant tell how many times i looked at various models on line. finally took the leap of faith. no regretts. played it every day since it came in. love it. all i expected. play it through Crate Flex Wave 120/212. a real nice sound. i have an old Strat from the 60s. the new one feels just as good. would also like to comliment on your speed of delivery and on line UPS tracking. had a bad experience with another company. got billed for something and never got it. your sevice was great. i dont buy a lot but what i do all comes from you guys.

                Maple neck is smooth and the contoured body is very comfortable. The string action makes playing up the neck extremely easy. The sound is pure Stratocaster spark and hum.

                    My incredible brother - the greatest person in the world - bought me this guitar as a birthday present. It's my dream guitar that I denied myself for 46 years.

                    It's an American Strat. I'm not even sure what I could say to add to that. This is simply THE guitar.

                      This is one awesome guitar. I bought this strat
                      about three weeks ago and put it thru its paces
                      and it is one of the best playing guitars that I
                      have ever owned. The maple fretboard is very
                      smooth & fast and the neck is very comfortable.
                      The HSS is a very versatile guitar creating whatever tones/sounds that you need. The fender light gauge strings that came on the guitar stay in tune very well and are easy to bend.
                      Musicians Friend is a great company to buy from and they offer some nice discounts. I will definitely buy from them again. Rock On!!

                        I'm 69 years old and all my life I wanted a strat. I was a classical guitar major and for years played my 1964 pre-CBS Jazz Bass in many groups. I recently purchased a Gretsch but I have not touch it since the strat took over. Love the sound, the feeling, the pickups are awsome. Great guitar and great service. Have not played in groups for over 25 years, but I am getting very itchy to hit the stage again. Thanks
