Fender Stratocaster USA
The idea of the American Standard Stratocaster was simple – take the best features found on the classic Stratocasters of the past and improve upon the other areas that could use some refinement. Some changes that were made included:
Addition of an extra fret (from 21 to 22),
Pickups with flush polepieces,
Ezy-Glider string retainers and vibrato bridge with two screw mounts for added tuning stability,
More consistent use of alder wood for the body (ash was a heavier and more inconsistent wood),
Use of Biflex truss-rod,
Return of the four-bolt neck mounting (from previous use of three in the 70’s),
A polyurethane finish.
This beautiful Fiesta Red Stratocaster was made somewhere in the late 90's and is in Perfect conditon all around except for one paint chip on the back of the armrest Action is great and it comes with the original Fender hardcase!
