Fender American Standard Stratocaster Left-Handed Electric Guitar Black Maple FretboardToday’s featured guitar is the Fender American Standard Stratocaster Left-Handed Electric Guitar Black Maple Fretboard. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The Fender American Stratocaster Electric Guitar is a Fender icon. Yep, even the Lefty. Juicy upgrades include a richer, deeper neck tint for a more elegant and expensive appearance. Glossed neck front for improved looks with satin back for smooth playability. Bent steel Fender saddles with classic look and great tone. String spacing narrowed for modern playability, saddle height screws re-sized to reduce rough feel, and string slot on saddle elongated to reduce string friction or breakage. Copper Infused Cast Strat® Bridge Block (steel with copper- 100% metal) for increased mass and improved tone. This Strat features the original headstock shape but has staggered machine heads losing one string tree and improving string angle over the nut. Custom staggered pickup magnets improve string-to-string balance and give the G-string better tone. Cosmetics include parchment/black/parchment pickguard and parchment pickup covers, knobs, and tips.

The return of the American Standard Series Strat continues Fender’s tradition of commitment to the people who play Fender instruments out there in the real world. Today’s American Standard Stratocaster guitars are worthy heirs of their revered ancestors–mindful of player needs and taking full advantage of modern advances, yet remaining completely true to the elements and spirit that made these instruments legendary in the first place. Improvements include redesigned bridges, neck and body finishes, and a Fender-exclusive high-tech molded case. Still there are the beloved hand-rolled fingerboard edges, alnico V pickups and staggered tuning machines for tone and stability guaranteed to last a lifetime (with its limited lifetime warranty)! So make history with the redesigned American Standard!

Fender rolls out the American Special Telecaster Electric Guitar that delivers a healthy combination of modern and traditional tones at a price that won’t drain your wallet.

The subtle 9-1/2″ radius maple neck, maple fingerboard, and jumbo frets make this Fender guitar very finger-friendly. Other features include an original-style Tele bridge with three brass saddles, an oversized ’70s-style decal, and black pickup covers, plastic parts, and dot position inlays.

Bridge plate

The combination of steel saddles with a brass plate harks back to the magic combination of the most sought-after vintage Tele guitars (which had steel plate/brass saddles). The plate also features two extra mounting screws to improve resonance and body contact (as well as eliminating ‘squeals’), and a stylized Fender logo to class up the instrument and nod to the design of ’60s era Fenders (like Jaguar and Mustang bridges).
