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.

    Comments about Fender American Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    Fantastic looking and playing. The neck is smooth as silk and fast and the tones from it are great. I played in a band back in the mid sixties, but now I only play for fun. It is such a joy to play.

    Comments about Fender American Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    Hello musicians
    I just purchased the Fender American Standard Stratocaster from Guitar Center online and I could not be happier
    It is everything and then some that Fender has written about this well made beautiful guitar.
    The features are flawless and sound makes me feel I spent my dollars on the best bang for my buck.
    And guitar center without a doubt gave me the best price and fastest delivery you can ask for...and I have dealt with all of the major online music suppliers. Thank you to the sales team at Guitar Center. Happy New Year
    PS: The Fender ABS case that is included in the price is well built and will protect my investment 100%
    Sincerely yours
    Katie

        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.

          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.
