About a week ago my wife's grandma sold her house and split the money up with her kids and grandkids. With my portion of the funds, I wanted a new guitar. My previous guitar was a Squier Tele Custom. I was looking to get the Squier 50's Vibe Strat. Ive often payed them and it had everything I wanted in a guitar and at a great price. When I got to the store my wife suggested I get a real Fender instead of a Squier (I wasn't gonna argue that) and so I saw this guitar. It wasn't too much more than the 50's Vibe.

The quality is outstanding. I got the brown sunburst with the maple neck. I was looking for a SSS strat, but I like a little distortion and I thought the humbucker wouldn't hurt. I was already used to the neck because it is pretty similar to my Tele, however this neck has an awesome finish and the back is so soft and smooth. No fret buzz or problems anywhere on the neck.

When I got to an amp at home, I used a small GDec amp that came with my brothers Squier Strat combo thing. I was surprised at the amp itself. The sound of the guitar was just like I wanted. It has those classic Strat tones I was looking for but can also handle some distortion. I used to own a strat and the pickups buzzed alot, with this guitar they don't buzz at all even with high gain. The tremolo is nice, and stays in tune pretty well except for the D string, so I just widened the nut slot for the D and its perfect.

Overall, I would recommend this guitar to anyone, even if you are new or experienced. its a very affordable Fender with the same Quality as American Strats I've played.

I got this guitar and was stunned at the finish quality. It is truly beautiful. The bad news: The set up out of the box was absolutely unacceptable. It plays very very well after a full set up though. Also, some fret edges are sharp and not dressed properly. Once again it needed to be filed and set up. And the pickups are very generic and un-inspired. The Bridge pickup is only suited to a light distortion, not full on shred type gain. Im planning on replacing ALL the electronics with USA made components. The build quality is so good that after all these set up issues and parts upgrades it will be a very useable and dependable guitar. I got mine used from Musiciansfriend, and got it on sale. If I had not gotten it so cheap, I would have passed on it. But since the price was right I dont mind taking the time and money to upgrade everything else. So if you want a decent guitar right out of the box, this is a gamble. I would probably look elsewhere. But If you want a guitar thats built super well, and can be something very special after some work, then try one out!

    Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

    I was kind of on the fence about buying one of these but I just couldn't resist. I got the Lake Placid Blue HSS with Rosewood fingerboard. I was immediately impressed by the construction of the guitar. The hardware is top notch, the finish is flawless, it plays perfectly and it sounds great. It was even set up properly out of the box. There is not a better value out there for a guitar. The price is well worth it for this quality of an instrument that would last a lifetime if maintained and taken care of.

      Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

      I have had several Fender guitars over the years. This is by far the best. Can't knock the MIM. Quality is top notch and sound is great. Only minor adjustments needed. The modern c shaped neck is perfect. I've been playing for 30+ years and this is by far the best, most comfortable playing guitar I have owned.

            Beautiful guitar, the frets were nice and smooth and candy apple paint
            Is perfect. The tone controls have to be turned way up to make a tonal
            Difference but that's OK . l have the rosewood neck which I love because
            Of the warm sound. The neck on mine is a little wide but I have very long
            Fingers which make the neck ideal and restful to play for hours.
            Musicians Friend is great to do business with , they always stand behind
            The products that they sell and make things right for the customer. Thanks
            I will be buying more music gear from you in the future sincerely Steve.

              The Guitar is a beautiful and a nice candy apple red that really catches the eye as soon as you take it out of the box. The Guitar played like a dream right out of the box with great playability and feel.

              It has a satisfying weight thats not too heavy and listening to the tone of the instrument makes you not want to put it down. I am very happy with my purchase and look forward to improving my guitar skills in the years to come.

                  Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

                  I am writing this in behalf of my grandson. We had a large birthday party for him and everyone watched while he opened the box that was suppose to be a black Fender Stratocaster. Unfortunately everyone felt bad for him, because the "wrong guitar" was shipped and was identical to the one he already had (telecaster). Although there was an error in shipping the wrong guitar, I must say that the returns/customer service department was absolutely phenomenal! They recognized the error, sent me a return shipping label immediately and shipped the correct Stratocaster guitar that same day. It arrived 4 days later and everyone was happy that this error was corrected so efficiently.

                  My hat goes off to you, Cyia for providing me such wonderful customer service! Prior to my retirement in 2010, I worked in Banking in excess of 35 years, so recognize the importance of providing outstanding customer service, and Cyia certainly went out of her way to please me. Thank you Cyia for a job well done!
