Premium Custom Shop pickups
No matter how well you play, your pickups will play a big part in determining whether your tone is epic or not. The latest model of the Fender American Standard Stratocaster sports three Custom Shop Fat ’50s single-coil pickups, an amazing value on a guitar at this price. Normally only used on Fender’s top-line Custom Shop guitars, these pickups put out the essence of classic Fender tone. Cleans are bright and clear, the midrange has bite, and you can take your tube amplifier from mellow to raging simply with your volume control.

American Standard Stratocaster bridge
The American Standard Stratocaster boasts a bridge that gives sought-after tone with modern smooth trem travel. This redesigned block retains the mass and tone of a vintage bridge block but is chambered for access to deeper dives. A typical cast bridge block is impregnated with a resin to eliminate “voids” in the material and to bond it together. Fender’s new steel block is infused with copper, which makes the block 100% homogeneous metal. The result is a more musical, higher mass bridge that has more of that machined-block sound.

Fender SKB case
The new case is a true advancement in guitar presentation and protection. It is stackable, it balances perfectly, it is TSA lock equipped, it has glass reinforced nylon trigger latches, and a killer form-fitted plush interior. It’s the perfect way to keep your American Standard Stratocaster safe for a lifetime.
