Summary: The first thing you will notice about the Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar is its white color. It is simply appealing you would want to closely inspect the guitar and get to know its features. Can it do more than looking good, you ask yourself. There are actually four colors for this model—the Arctic White, Black, Electric Blue and Brown Sunburst (all new) as well as Midnight Wine and Chrome Red. But there’s more to this electric guitar than looking good.
Excerpt: The guitar isn't really a strat, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. If this were a Charvel, I could understand, but it just seems odd for Fender to release a guitar with two humbuckers, in my opinion. I also am a huge fan of singles in the neck and bridge, so that's another thing I'm iffy on. The guitar itself is decent, and some of thes...

Excerpt: I aquired these guitars (I have two) by using my Musician's Friend Platinum credit card from Musician's Friend of course. I believe I paid $229.99 for the first one and $149.99 for the second one. I bought these guitars because I could not find a better playing guitar for the price that sounds as good as this.
Excerpt: The bottom line is that this guitar is versitile, great, and almost as good as and american strat.if ur planning on buying a squier i would strongly urge u to spend an extra 100 and buy this guitar. its infinatly better. [ read more on Audiofanzine ] A good guitar, a little expensive for what you get, still sounds a lot better than the warlock,Has a warm clean tone to it. Its also the last Fender I will own, but its still only a standard.
Excerpt: I came across this guitar at the Guitar Center. The second I saw this guitar I started rocking out on it. The sound quality is nice and the slim body and light weight make it easier to play. It has a nice sound with any amp you play with and I perfer the Crybaby distortion pedal with this guitar. I paid $794 for this guitar and it was worth it. It is definitley worth any money you put into it, but don't go paying $1,500 for it. You can get this sick axe for cheaper.

Excerpt: I bought my Strat from Music123.com after looking around online and viewing many reviews. I used to play in bands for about 19 years total, but stopped playing for several years after starting a family. I guess I was kind of burned out, but now I wonder how I could have stopped for so long. I started getting the bug to play again so first I purchased an acoustic guitar to mess around with, then soon wanted a new electric, since that was what I used to play the most.
Excerpt: I love this guitar. It looks fantastic, Plays fantastic, and most importantly, sounds amazing. No matter which colour it is in, it is beautiful, and the sounds could rival an actual Fnder Strat- You can get Ritchie Blackmoores, Jimi Hendrixs, Eric Clapton and Yngwie Malmsteens sounds without the help of six effects pedals!
Excerpt: I would highly recommend this guitar to any beginning or intermediate player, or even an advanced player as a 'beater'. Would also recommend it for people who want a good foundation for modifications. While it is always possible to get a lemon in this price range, these tend to be excellent guitars. Indonesian made guitars seem to be a well ke...
Excerpt: A little bit of Strat history: as Stratocaster sales began to slip once Buddy Holly was gone, Fender seriously considered cutting the Strat from its line-up altogether. It seems that, at the last possible moment, everybody got their jaws dropped by some new guy named Hendrix and the Strat was safe. Clapton "built" his "Blackie" Strat from th...
