A Special Edition Strat with a bridge humbucker and custom cosmetics.

If you're the kind of Strat player who wants more punch out of the bridge position, this distinctive Fender Standard HSS Stratocaster is made for you. It's got that classic look and feel that only a Strat can deliver, with the added muscle of a bridge humbucker, so you can go from glassy single-coil tones to heavyweight growl and scream with the flip of a switch. This special Strat features a cool look with candy red burst finish and black pickguard.

  • Alder body
  • C-shape maple neck
  • 25.5" scale
  • Rosewood fretboard
  • 2 single-coil neck/middle pickups and 1 humbucking bridge pickup
  • Vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge
  • Case sold separately

You'll love this one. Order today.

Comments about Fender Special Edition Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

I'm another one of those guys who started playing back in the 60's. I then stopped playing for about 40 years (yeah, I'm gettin' old). Anyway, I bought this MIM guitar because I like the red color with the black pickguard. Plus, it's a Fender at a rock bottom price. Don't let the price fool you. The workmanship is outstanding. I checked every square inch of this instrument and it is perfect. The neck is straight, the set-up is just right, and the intonation is spot on. And, as everyone has said, "it plays like buttah". I have it hooked up to a Vox AC10C1 tube amp and it sounds excellent !!!! If you want a Strat that is well made, plays smoothly, and can ROCK with it's bridge humbucker pickup, get this guitar. At the sale price, it's a steal. This has to be one of the best deals around. No kidding.
