There are few other names in the music world that command as much respect and admiration as "Stratocaster." It's the instrument that most people picture in their minds when they think "electric guitar," and there's a very good reason for that: when they were first introduced, these guitars completely revolutionized the entire rock'n'roll genre - so much so that they became synonymous with it. So if you're looking for an axe that pulses with the heart and soul of rock, one of these Stratocaster guitars is a perfect choice. Whether you choose a vintage reissue modeled after the original 1950s editions or something more modern, there's plenty to love about the Strat.
What may surprise you most looking through this section is that you can even buy your Stratocaster in pieces. There are bodies, pickups (like the DiMarzio Area Strat Pickup Set) and necks galore, so if you want to tinker with building a Stratocaster from scratch, or give your existing instrument a new lease on life, you've got your pick of everything you need to do it right here. On the other hand, if you're a beginner looking to start playing right out of the box with minimal tinkering, check out a bundle like the Squier Affinity Series Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar Pack, which comes with everything you need.
In fact, Squier Stratocasters are great choices for any musician looking for an affordable Strat. The Squier Vintage Modified Stratocaster Surf and the Classic Vibe 60th Anniversary Stratocaster Electric Guitar are just two examples of these beginner and casual player-friendly instruments. And then there are even more options when you go to the Fender name itself, from budget-friendly models like the Standard Stratocaster Plus Top with the choice of a rosewood or maple fingerboard, all the way to the American Vintage '65 Stratocaster Left-Handed Electric Guitar, and that's not even getting into the elite Custom Shop and vintage finds waiting here to be discovered.
So whether you're looking for an affordable and playable beginner instrument, a high-value vintage Strat or even to build or rebuild your instrument from the ground up, you'll find what you need in this selection of Stratocaster guitars and parts.
