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. Includes gig bag.

    Comments about Fender USA Professional Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

    I am an old guy who recently picked up guitar again after a long layoff (played growing up and through college, put it aside for kids, life, etc.). When I started looking to purchase a new instrument I never imagined I could get a USA-built Strat at this price. For the money, it is a remarkable value. Sounds great, plays great and I love LOVE LOVE! the trans crimson finish.

    The neck is awesome--the satin finish is super slick, frets are finished nicely, and I've always preferred rosewood fingerboards. Pickups provide a range of tones from pure single-coil to humbucking crunch. I guess Strat purists might take exception to the humbucker, but I actually like the added tone versatility. Not so sure about the zebra, though--wish it was white like the single coils.

    I have owned this guitar since July 2016 and recently completed my first mod--blocking the tremolo. I rarely use trem, but I sometimes rest my hand on the bridge and found it could put the guitar temporarily out of tune. Half a dozen quarters and some Scotch tape did the trick.

      Comments about Fender USA Professional Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

      This professional grade Strat produces beautiful tone, added punch from the bridge pickup providing even more versatility. Made in the USA, Corona California. A deluxe USA Stratocaster at the price of a Made in Mexico Stratocaster, and believe me, Fender is producing extraordinary quality instruments from Ensenada Mexico. Go play one. Guitar Center will accommodate you...

        Comments about Fender USA Professional Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

        I received theis USA strat last week. price was right but was disappointed out of the box. right beside my Mexican strat it did not play as well. played with it a day then decided to lower the action. the Mexican I have is set up perfect, this usa strat now ALMOST plays as well, and to be honest, does have better sounding pickups..... also the A string came flat. this guitar has grown on me, it's hard to put down now that I've got the kinks out. the transparent finish is nice and the electronics are superb, especially with the S1 switch. it's a keeper and for the price a really good deal.
