Fender 2012 American Standard Stratocaster
Fender electric guitars are an American institution, and the Stratocaster is the poster child of that movement. Regardless of what style or genre of music you play, it’s a safe bet to say that you probably could use a Strat in your life. The American Standard perfectly exemplifies all that guitarists love about the axe, starting with the extreme comfort of its modern C-style neck. Designed to provide a high level of comfort, it allows guitarists to move up and down the neck with ease. The single-coil pickups that the American Standard totes are a definitive component of the classic Fender Strat sound. These N3 noiseless pickups give a bright and biting tone while also eliminating any unwanted hum or buzz.
Feel like dipping and diving in your surf, rock, blues, or metal tunes? Look no further than the two-point synchronized tremolo bridge, but also know that it provides an added amount of sustain and will keep your guitar in tune while doing so. And finally, this Strat is available in a variety of finish options, so you can rest assured knowing that you’ll be able to nab a guitar that visually vibes with what you’re going after as well; in fact, you may enjoy the American Standard so much that you want to pick up a few in different colors, just don’t go TOO crazy now.
