I'd give it 10 Stars if I could!

Comments about Fender American Standard 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

This is an absolute gem of a guitar. I've been playing for over 40 years and this is one of the finest guitars I've ever played. I give it a A+ in what I consider to be the 3 most important categories: playability, sound, and looks. I'm blown away by the beautiful two tone burst color and the natural wood grain that comes through near the tail piece of the guitar. I've never owned a guitar with gold hardware before but it really suits this guitar well and looks great. The smooth satin finish on the back of the neck along with the 9.5" to 14" compound radius maple fret board makes for an excellent playing guitar even playing single note lead lines in the upper fret registers. No problem at all. And no fretting out when bending the high E or B strings in the upper frets too. Nice! The guitar plays itself. Most of my guitars (including my two other Strats) have a 9.5" radius. I'll never go back. Compound radius is where it's at for me. I use 9-46 Ernie Ball strings on all of my guitars (Fenders and Gibsons) so I'll probably put those on this beauty at some point. But the 9-42 set that came with the guitar feel and sound great. I decked the trem bar down since I don't like floating bridges. That took all of 5 minutes with a Phillips head screwdriver. Stays in tune pretty well even after doing deep dive bombs and I'm sure it will get even better in time as I break in the bar, the springs and the strings. I have two other Strats ('95 Strat Plus and an '02 Am Deluxe) and both have humbuckers in the bridge position. I wanted a Strat with true single coil pickups for that authentic vintage Strat sound. The '54 pups they put in this guitar sound fantastic in all 5 positions. The guitar sounds great clean or when using overdrive and other effects. Great for rhythm or lead. I'm blown away. If there was ever such thing as the perfect Strat. This is it!

Great Sounding Guitar

By Chris

from North Aurora, Il

Comments about Fender American Standard 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I have played an Gibson SG for a couple of years. I picked up the 60th for fun just to try out and Wham!! What a great sounding guitar. The pick ups are awesome and the feel of the guitar is great. The transition to this guitar works out well for me. It feels light, the maple neck just glides smoothly when playing down the frets and the beautiful color and gloss just looks great. I like the addition of the gold hardware, the pearls, and the 60th engravings along this guitar. The sound is perfect for rock and blues as well as some soft jazz. And wait to you see the tweed case that comes with this baby along with fun accessories. I have now added Fender on my top list to play on for future gigs. Enjoy!

WOW!!!

By Jim

from Millerstown, PA

Comments about Fender American Standard 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I have owned many strats over the years, even bought a somewhat boutique strat through Pat's Guitars, and none of them and I mean none of them compare to this guitar. Every flip of the the pickup selector switch gives you a different guitar, the neck profile is fantastic, the action was dead on with absolutely no buzz, the tones that come out of this thing are just amazing with the classic strat sounds, this is custom shop quality, maybe even masterbuilt quality, feather light and just a joy to play, I don't feel like putting it down when I have it. I feel it is the biggest bargain out there, go to GC and try one if they can keep it on the shelf for very long because I had to have it as soon as I tried it. I am letting the secret out people, don't wait!!!

sunburst sweetness

By GARY LOWENTHAL

from denver,colorado

Comments about Fender American Standard 60th Anniversary Commemorative Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I had this guitar on my mind since we both are 60 now. got one 2 days ago and I love it. very light, maybe 7 pounds even! a shoulder pleaser for hours. great action with the nines that it came strung with. all of the strat tones you'd expect and a great neck. the whammy bar is floating just like it should be and it stays in tune even after making the sounds of Jimi's doorbell. might have to sell the'57 reissue I've had for over 20 years, this one is more plush. great job Fender, happy 60th, keep doing great stuff., gary L. in denver
