Overview

Hand-built in Corona, California, Fender USA Professional electrics offer pro-spec playability and superb tone at a great value. The USA Pro Stratocaster HSS is equipped with custom-wound vintage-style single-coil pickups that deliver superb 3-dimensional Strat Tone. For added muscle and aggressive tone, a Zebra humbucker is loaded in the bridge position. This is a popular mod among Strat players as it perfectly compliments the sparkle of the single-coils and enhances the versatility of the instrument. This custom-wound pickup delivers warm, vintage growl in humbucking mode and true classic Strat tone in single-coil mode which is engaged via the Fender S-1 switch on the volume pot. Other features include alder body, maple neck with 9.5” radius, 22 jumbo frets, a vintage-style bridge and 5-way switching. Comes with a deluxe gig bag.

        I' ve owned a lot of guitars over the years. I love strats, this thing played great right out of the box. Stays in tune and sounds great. I've had it for a few months and played it at least five times a week and I still don't think there is a scratch on it. Fit and finish are spot on. I also have a deluxe and the electronics on the USA pro are much more straight forward with the s-1 just as a coil tap. It's just a fun, great sounding instrument. GC's got a winner..

            Bought this as Christmas present for my son. Arrived well-packaged, but out of the box with no sound output from neck pickup. I brought it back to store branch nearby, and the technician there confirmed that the neck pickup was broken. Had offered replacement guitar, but desired color (brown sunburst) was not available in store. Salesperson recommended to buy a different color, so I settled for crimson red, waiting to get delivered and picked up from the store. Such an inconvenience for an expensive guitar!

            Everything I wanted in a strat

            By Ryan

            from Bremerton, Washington

            Comments about Fender USA Professional Standard Stratocaster HSS:

            I just got back into guitar after a 8 year hiatus. I sold my Gibson SG when I stopped playing, so the search began. I immediately knew I wanted a strat, but also wanted the humbucker in the bridge to add some versatility. I started looking at the MIM standard and the lonestar model but wasn't completely sold. I went to my local Guitar Center and fell in love. This guitar is beautiful, and plays like a dream. The pickguard is a subtle mint green while the pickups and knobs are a nice parchment. The neck plays fast with a little fret buzz on the low E and A strings. My friends and I all have different playing styles and preferred genres but this guitar can play them all. I was satisfied with the bucker on some muddy blues licks and even metal with some extra gain on the amp. The S-1 switching is a huge bonus as it splits the humbucker to produce a 3 pick-up sound. Like others have said, this guitar is awesome right out of the box but with a 30 minute set-up this guitar has the potential to be something really special.

            Could not stop thinking about it

            By Rodney Crittendon

            from Sioux Falls, SD

            Comments about Fender USA Professional Standard Stratocaster HSS:

            I bought this guitar in march and fell in love with it. It is smooth, powerful and ready to go right off the shelf. the range is just amazing. After having it for only a few day I had a fall at work and injured my back. Facing surgery I decided to return it to Guitar center. With no hassle they refunded my purchase price completely. I could not stop thinking about this guitar. As soon as my back allowed me I was playing on my 2001 Gibson Les Paul Special. A great guitar but not the Strat I well in love with. So today I packed it up and took it to Guitar Center to trade it for another Fender USA Professional Standard Stratocaster HSS. When it came time for a case I asked for a hard case. The salesman came back and he had found my original Strat still in the old case. HOLY #@!*!!! I have never been happier with a purchase or had better service than that from Guitar Center. Bottom Line. THIS GUITAR ROCKS!!! From playability to appearance, you just cant find a better axe for the money. When I got home the thing was still in tune. Smooth switch and knobs, tight tremolo, satin neck and just a beautiful finish on the entire guitar. This thing will never leave my collection again.

            Amazing

            By Will Brumley

            from Fort Worth, TX

            Comments about Fender USA Professional Standard Stratocaster HSS:

            Amazing. I saved up the money for a standard but then this came out. I bought it and it immediately passed all of my inspections. The action was a little high, and the bridge was floating, so once I got that taken care of it blew me away. Great for Clapton and beck. The humbucker sounds great on Led Zeppelin to Metallica and anything in between. The parchment colored pickups, knobs, and pickguard make the 3 tone sunburst finish look great. I would recommend this guitar to anyone.

            Vintage Strat Forget the Custom Shop

            By ralph headrick

            from ringgold,georgia

            Comments about Fender USA Professional Standard Stratocaster HSS:

            I picked my new Strat Dec. 8th 2013,I did not like the factory setup, action was to high per my personal playing feel,as I own a Les Paul and another Strat type guitar,also the tremolo was floated,I returned to Guitar Center a couple of days later and they lowered the string action at No Charge,don't waste Your Money on one of the Deluxe strats, with the Noiseless PUPs,and roller nut,you can get this one with the pearly gates that sounds the same as my 57 classic in the Bridge of my Les Paul! The SCs are very ,very ,vintage,Like the Strats people played in bars and such I went to in the 70's.I have been looking for a vintage sounding Stratocaster for a long time, this one is it!Tuning stays stable with whammy bar use with the regular tuning machines however you do have to lube the bridge and tuning posts with fender recommended lubricate, the gig bag is good, however I do plan on investing in a hardshell case later on and maybe some locking tuners, this guitar has a great neck on it,not to fat not to skinny, I play 9s on all my guitars,they seem to match the best with the other equipment in my rig plus, I have been told by older guitar players the heavy strings will cause carpal tunnel. I am RH and already had to have surgery on my right hand caused by the job I had,just coming from an old picker a USA made Strat for a Grand, with coil split and pearly gates in the bridge,that is vintage sounding,setting here looking at Zebra Lady,Don't none of you all steal my ladys name now! Can't stop playing this lady.Georgia Picker
