Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top with Locking Tremolo, Maple Fingerboard:

Great guitar in theory . I dont own it but i played it in a couple of different stores. First problem ( and this is a problem on alot of fender guitars ) is for a hard rock floyd rose machine - there is , once again, NO 22nd FRET ! Its a joke that fender randomly does 22 frets on certain guitars and not others. I can understand 21 frets on old, classic style , retro, vintage etc....but not on more modern strats. Especially strats with a humbucker. Missing that 22nd fret kills playing in b or E at the 19th fret position and doing those high e bends. Its ridiculous that fender still does this. They do it so youll have to buy one of their standard necks for 400+ .

The other problem is, the flame on this guitar varies from guitar to guitar...look around on the net and youll see it. Some really pop and some are very subtle.

Id like to see fender do this same guitar with 22 frets , and a hot rails style humbucker in the bridge . They look better that way. And do the body in basswood , basswood is a better tone than alder to me.

It would also be nice if they did this guitar in a mahogany body with a set through neck...same pickup and bridge configuration , but set through for more sustain for metal players.

Fender owns the best looking electric guitar style and logo but they are lagging on modern features. Yeah, its nice to own older style classics but, get with the times. There are guitars for the wall and guitars to play ! Otherwise, this is a nice " idea ". I may still purchase it and get an aftermarket neck.

Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top with Locking Tremolo, Maple Fingerboard:

Wanted a strat with Floyd rose and all maple neck. This guitar is a looker but buyer beware. Does not come with a gig bag or case, laminate flame top and poor sounding cheap pickups that will have to be changed out if I'm keeping. I'm a big Fender fan but I don't like cutting corners on the things that matter ... Tough call
