The American Standard Stratocaster is the same great best-selling, go-to guitar it has always been, and now it's upgraded with aged plastic parts and full-sounding Fender Custom Shop Fat '50s pickups. The latest iteration of the time-honored classic, it is the very essence of Strat tone and remains a beauty to see, hear and feel.

The American Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Maple Fingerboard is a Fender icon. It's a beauty to behold in sound, look and feel. Features include hand-rolled fingerboard edges, Custom Shop Fat '50s pickups, staggered tuners, improved bridge with bent steel saddles and copper-infused high-mass block for increased resonance and sustain, tinted neck, high-gloss maple fretboard, satin neck back for smooth playability, thin-finish undercoat that lets the body breathe and improves resonance, and Fender Tolex case.

Those are cool guitars BUT once I got the American STD I truly felt like finally I don't need to lie to myself and say that all the rest are exactly the same (deep inside I knew i'm lying ;) because they are not.

I opened the case and it smelled of paint. I have fret buzz on the low E and A strings between the 9th and 12th frets. Also a dead spot on the high E string on the 14th fret. I took it to my luthier, he told me that the frets were so high on the low E and A strings between the 9th and 12th fret that the only fix was fret leveling. I am not going to pay for that on a new guitar, so I am returning it. I bought a new 2012 American Standard two years ago and the quality was excellent. Very disappointing that the quality has slipped that much in just two years. The blue color is outstanding.

    I play out every weekend and record often in my home studio. The Strat is perfect. Played it right outta the box and the factory setup is superb. I continue to get positive comments on the sound of this instrument. You can have this guitar when you pry it from my cold dead fingers!

    Comments about Fender American Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I opened up the box, and immediately was in awe of the beauty of this guitar. I got the 3-tone burst color, and it's absolutely beautiful. Amazing feel, great factory setup (although the strings are a little thin for my taste, so I'll change those out). The case is great! It also came with a cord, a strap, and a rag to wipe it down with. All in all, GREAT bang for the buck.

      Comments about Fender American Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      I've been playing an old American strat for the past 15 years, loved that guitar, still do... but I needed a new guitar and something told me that this new model would be awesome. I'm in love with this guitar, it feels incredible and sounds amazing. I'll be playing a lot of Hendrix so I got myself my own "Black Beauty" and I've never been happier.

        Comments about American Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        I play at home for my own enjoyment and to de-stress. Playing for over 30 years and wondering what it would be like to play an authentic Strat, it was time to go for it. I can only tell you that I waited far too long to put this in my hands. From the neck to the finish, and tone that come from this guitar it is second to none.

          I've had many guitars in my years and even Strats prior but I wanted a new American made one in the Bordeaux Metallic since I perform prominently in my local winery area. The paint is lush and deep looking sometimes, blue, purple and red depending upon your lighting.
