  • New Strat is a winner

    As reviewed by Hans Hansen on 5/7/2012

    All of the improvements of the past 2 years are in this model with the addition of the Fat 50's pickups. These pups sound great, basically classic, with slightly higher output without sounding hot. The neck will appeal to most players as most measurements are a compromise, IE nut width, neck and fingerboard radii. The rosewood is good and dark - reminiscent of Brazilian stock. The paint and finishing are almost flawless. A nice well built case and some candy make this a good value overall. I have the Jade pearl metallic which would be at home on some custom cars. The appearance changes with the light, going from green with a hint of metallic to silver with a hint of green. I picked mine up at a GC showroom.

  • Great updated American Standard

    As reviewed by PER ANDERSSON OHRVIK on 3/22/2012

    I bought the Jade Pearl version which is a nice new color. The updated 50s pickups sound "hotter" and punchier in a good way, if you'd ask me. They have a really nice crunch sound, when you turn up he gain on the amp. I am totally happy. I liked the sound of the 2011 as well but this is more what I was looking for in a strat. Makes a solid appearance. I tuned it when I picked it up and two days, later after many hours playing I can't remember having needed to retune it! If there is something that I am not sure of yet is how the neck pickup actually performs compared to other strats. I have no strat at home to compare to, but maybe the 2012 is a little "darker" sounding from the neck pup. On the other hand I really like the 2 and 4 positions on the pup switch and I usually never use them on other strats. You can get a nice almost Gibson SG sound if you turn the tone knob down a glitch. At the end of the day this is a classic American made standard strat with all the traditional sound but with a little hotter pickups than they used to be.

  • Candy Cola Rosewood Fretboard

    As reviewed by Chris Mentesana on 4/2/2012

    Guys, take your wife or girlfriend with you to Guitar Center!!! I went in looking for a Strat, and walked out with the 2012 American Strat off of the top rack. Oh yes. The wife looked up and seen this beautiful guitar, the guy climbed the ladder and handed it to me. We had three way magic going on. My wife looking at the beauty of the guitar, and my fingers gliding up and down the neck of pure silk. I played it through a Vox AC15C1BL, limited ed vintage amp, and again, she fell in love with the beauty of the amp, and I fell in love with the sound. What a combo. What is really amazing, I walked out with a new Amp and Guitar rig that were like a matched set, and only out the door $1600 less than I came in with. This is by far the best sounding and looking rig I have ever had in 30 years of playing several high dollar guitars (Guild X-170, Gretsch Country Gentleman, Fender American Deluxe Tele, and Taylor T5) and decent amps (Fender Twin, Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, and Crete Blue Voodoo) Highly recommended. I thought about going with a Mexican Start and upgrading PUs and getting a case, but I would have still had nearly a grand in it and still had a Mexican Strat.
