As Fender’s flagship guitar, the American Standard Stratocaster stands as arguably the single most iconic electric guitar in the world. The Stratocaster’s timeless design has made it a favorite of players across all genres, from blues to metal, jazz to country.The American Standard Stratocaster is available in a range of colours, with the option of maple or rosewood fingerboard. Alder is most commonly used for the body, but Ash is available in select colours at a small upcharge. Either way, the body contouring makes the Strat one of the most comfortable guitars to play.

As of 2012, the American Standard Stratocaster has been upgraded to include 3 Fender Custom Shop “Fat 50s” single coil pickups. Fender’s 2-point Synchronized Tremolo bridge is both stable and easily adjustable, allowing the feel and action of the trem system to be customized to your preferences.

Current Canadian MAP Price: $1629.00 Canadian Dollars
