Fender's dedication to all budgets and tastes couldn't be more evident than in their Standard line of guitars and basses. Crafted with meticulous attention to every detail and using only high-quality woods and components, Fender Standard instruments are ideal for entry-level players who want a first-class axe, and even gigging pros who don't want to spend an arm and a leg on their next stage-ready model. From Strats and Teles to Jazz and Precision basses, what you'll find here are some of the most recognizable stringed instruments in the world.
If there's anything more fun than playing a Fender guitar or bass, it's browsing their selection of options, and as you've probably noticed already, there are more than enough choices. For example, if you're a fan of classic rock sounds from George Harrison and Eric Clapton, you'll definitely want to look at the many Standard Strats in this catalog, and the Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Maple Fretboard is an excellent place to start your search. With its alder body, comfortable C-shaped maple neck, three single-coil pickups and synchronized tremolo with high-mass bridge block, this model has all the best features of the same guitar design that changed the world.
Aside from electric guitars and basses, you'll also find acoustic-electric models, and the Standard Stratacoustic is ideal for fans of pop rock and adult-alternative styles. Equipped with BG3-TN electronics, a built-in tuner and sporting a slick maple neck and Stratocaster-shaped body, this beauty is a versatile powerhouse. Now, for bassists who enjoy the punchy sound made famous by legends like Dee Dee Ramone or modern stars like Nate Mendel of Foo Fighters, you'll want to go with the Standard Precision. Delivering the tone, look and feel that is commonly in today's alt-rock world, the Standard Precision Bass has an easy-playing fretboard with jumbo frets, and a split-coil pickup for a punchy, fat tone.
And those three items are only a sample of what awaits you in this selection, so at this point we'll leave the exploring up you. When you get right down to it, Fender Standard guitar and basses reflect the true spirit of their mission - to construct the greatest stringed-instruments in the world and make them attainable to anyone who has a passion for playing.
