Icon. Not a word to be used lightly. But the Stratocaster is just that. The new American Standard Stratocaster guitars are beauties to behold in sound, look and feel. Fender has kept the hand-rolled fingerboard edges, alnico V pickups and staggered tuning machines for playability, tone and stability, and added several new features, including:
A new bridge with improved bent-steel saddles and a copper-infused high-mass block for increased resonance, sustain, and deeper dives.
A new neck treatment tinted for a richer presentation, with the maple or rosewood fingerboard buffed to a high gloss. The back of the neck still has that great silky satin finish for improved playability.
A thinner finish undercoat that lets the body breathe and improves resonance.
A new Fender-exclusive SKB molded case.
Two beautiful new finish options, Sienna Sunburst and Blizzard Pearl.
