Used 2012 Fender American Standard Stratocaster serial number US12189926.

This guitar is in near mint condition, neck and frets are fine, cosmetically showing little playing time. Although the Olympic White finish on the front has aged a bit more than on the back.

The Fender American Standard Stratocaster has continued to evolve. In 2012, the American Standard was upgraded with Custom Shop pickups, a thinner undercoat finish for improved body resonance, and an improved tremolo bridge block.

Additional upgrades include a richer, deeper neck tint, bent steel Fender saddles with classic look and great tone. String spacing is narrowed for modern playability, saddle height screws are resized to reduce rough feel, and string slot on saddle is elongated to reduce string friction or breakage. The Copper Infused Cast Strat Bridge Block (steel with copper”100% metal) provides 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.

This incarnation of the American Standard Strat sounds as big as ever thanks to the use of three Fender Custom Shop Fat '50s pickups. These powerful single-coil pickups are identical to those used on some of Fender's highest-end custom models, and yield copious amounts of classic, chiming Strat tone.”

This is a great Strat, in great shape, sweet price point!

Original hard shell case included.

*Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.
