        Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

        This is a great quality guitar for my son to learn on for a low price. He's had 2 other guitars and this one is his favorite. He plays rock and blues. Sounds great to me. But, the best part of getting this guitar was dealing with Musician Friend's customer service. They are professionals and make sure that you have a good buying experience. It came packaged well and perfectly in tune to play out of the box. Will change out strings later. For the cost of this guitar and the quality of the customer service, we give it 5 stars.

        This is my first Fender, I have 22 years playing guitar and I used other brands. For the price this HSS has a great sound, nice body and color, and you can play any style with this guitar. Just one thing, needs 24 frets, but, I love it!!!

            Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

            This guitar is great! Fender through and through, minus the pickups. I got a special edition MIM Strat, and I must say, I love it. Although I prefer the American made strats, the Mexican ones are stil phenomenal. It really is kind of hard to get a bad strat(unless it's a Squire). I am definitely going to change the pickups though, because the neck pickup gives off quite a bit of static when you turn the tone up, the middle pickup is really quiet, and I mean REALLY quiet, and the humbucker is harsh on the ears. Also, you do have to intonate the strings a little bit. If you like the classic strat sound, get the standard SSS, not the humbucker. I learned my lesson on that one. I'm going to change out the pickups with '69 vintage custom pickups. In conclusion, this is an amazing guitar with great action and a smooth feel without any buzzing frets.

              For the money this guitar is great! I got the lake placid blue color. It looks great and sounds even better. I play mostly alternative rock, this guitar will be perfect for that genre. I'm very happy with my order, and musicians friend! This Fender rocks.

                Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

                About a week ago my wife's grandma sold her house and split the money up with her kids and grandkids. With my portion of the funds, I wanted a new guitar. My previous guitar was a Squier Tele Custom. I was looking to get the Squier 50's Vibe Strat. Ive often payed them and it had everything I wanted in a guitar and at a great price. When I got to the store my wife suggested I get a real Fender instead of a Squier (I wasn't gonna argue that) and so I saw this guitar. It wasn't too much more than the 50's Vibe.

                The quality is outstanding. I got the brown sunburst with the maple neck. I was looking for a SSS strat, but I like a little distortion and I thought the humbucker wouldn't hurt. I was already used to the neck because it is pretty similar to my Tele, however this neck has an awesome finish and the back is so soft and smooth. No fret buzz or problems anywhere on the neck.

                When I got to an amp at home, I used a small GDec amp that came with my brothers Squier Strat combo thing. I was surprised at the amp itself. The sound of the guitar was just like I wanted. It has those classic Strat tones I was looking for but can also handle some distortion. I used to own a strat and the pickups buzzed alot, with this guitar they don't buzz at all even with high gain. The tremolo is nice, and stays in tune pretty well except for the D string, so I just widened the nut slot for the D and its perfect.

                Overall, I would recommend this guitar to anyone, even if you are new or experienced. its a very affordable Fender with the same Quality as American Strats I've played.

                This guitar is great, i still cant believe its a Fender, the guitar feels great, plays great and has a great tone to boot. My only griped with this guitar are its weak pick ups and annoying 60s cycle hum, other than that the guitar sounds great and everybody in my class think its an american when they hear and then i have to tell then its an MIM.

                  This is like the greatest deal for a name brand guitar that is reliable and sounds good. Because its got the humbucker it has a rich sound that is very good for punk, metal, alternative, blues and many other genres.
