Description

The Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top pairs famous Fender tone and classic style with an elegant flame maple top and a versatile HSS pickup configuration.

The Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top offers a striking blend of legendary Fender tone, playability, and style, with the added elegance of a gorgeous flame maple top over the alder body. The body comes dressed in your choice of two flattering burst finishes that accentuate the beautiful top figure: Aged Cherry Burst and Tobacco Sunburst. Carved from maple into Fender's cozy Modern "C" profile, the neck carries a maple or rosewood fingerboard (maple on Aged Cherry Burst, rosewood on Tobacco Sunburst) with a more contemporary 9.5" radius and 21 medium-jumbo frets for excellent playability and effortless string bending.

The Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top comes equipped with a pair of Fender Standard Single-Coil pickups in the neck and middle positions to deliver that classic single-coil Strat tone that made the originals legendary. In the bridge position, a powerful Standard Humbucking pickup offers great tone plus additional sonic flexibility. The pickups are wired through a versatile 5-position blade, a Master Volume control, and dual Tone controls (Tone 1 for Neck Pickup, Tone 2 for Middle Pickup).

Chrome hardware rounds out this attractive, yet affordable package, and includes a 6-Saddle Vintage-Style Synchronized Tremolo bridge and a set of Standard Cast/Sealed tuners. Case not included.

Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top Electric Guitar:

I have been playing guitar for several years but only played electric for the last year or so. Out of the guitars I have tried this one is probably one of the better entry level guitars. The sound is slightly thinner than the American made guitars but not too noticeable. The action was slightly high at the nut but not terrible. My biggest complaint would be the tuners. They have a very low gear ratio which makes it much harder to dial in your tuning.
However, I really do like the tone and it is a great alternative to my Les Paul. The neck is comfortable and what some would call a "fast" neck and overall with a few small tweaks and changes it will be a great guitar.

Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Plus Top Electric Guitar:

I own it and at about 520-550, they are a remarkable deal! Good pickups (I mean good!), beautifully built and finished with a stunning flamed maple cap over alder body. Nicely finished frets and rosewood board has some reddish coloration. Very neat finish with no drips or pooling, etc.
Mine needed a thin string package paper shim or 2 to make the neck angle more shallow. That allows you to raise the saddles and make the screws sink out of contact with fingers. My SamAsh does a free setup when you buy a guitar.

This guitar is good enough for modest money to get a setup guy to do the job one time for you. Tuners are good and positive and it sounds really good. Get the bridge pickup on to the rear tone control with a small jumper wire soldered in the switch (Duncan website shows how).

At this price point, it's plenty of Strat for most any guy unless you are a working pro. Play one and you will be sold on it.
