We were looking to purchase an electronic drum kit for our son. We visited PMT back in September to have a look at the range of items they had. While there an assistant came to offer help and advice on the different sets that were available. My son was also allowed to try them out too. After choosing one he liked we went away to research as it was intended for a Christmas present. On looking the item up it showed that for the same money you could get extra items. We then returned and asked if they would price match as we believe in trying to support the local business, but ultimately things do come down to price and value. To our delight they were happy to price match, and as a result we even upgraded. The service from viewing to purchasing was really good, as these musical instruments are not cheap and you need good honest advice when purchasing. Would totally recommend this company.

Overview

The American Standard Stratocaster is the same great best-selling, go-to guitar it has always been, and now it’s upgraded with aged plastic parts and full-sounding Fender Custom Shop Fat ’50s pickups. The latest iteration of a time-honored classic, it is the very essence of Strat tone and remains a beauty to see, hear and feel.

It doesn't get much better than this. Many have tried to emulate the vintage tone of a Strat but few have succeeded - the American Standard is an authentic slab of true Rock and Roll history!

A hand-made, all-American classic

Conceived at the USA Fender factory originally in 1954 by Leo Fender himself, the American Stratocaster has left its mark on the music industry and helped shaped the sound of Country, Rock, Blues and Punk, plus countless other genres. Think Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Ritchie Blackmore and Eric Clapton to name but a few of the legends who famously wielded a Strat in their prime years.

A classic formula for success

Over the years, the Strat has changed very little. Why fix something that isn't broken, right? The sleek, contoured Alder body has defined the tone and playability of the Strat since 1956 and remains today. The trademark 'whammy' tremolo system offers up outrageous string-bending tone without affecting tuning stability.

However, modern innovations have helped Fender craft the Strat to perfection. A thinner undercoat finish offers improved resonance, while a copper-infused bridge block further adds to the tone consistency and performance.


Custom Shop Fat 50s pickups

In the past, the premium Fat 50s single-coil pickups were typically reserved for Fender's top-of-the-line Custom Shop guitars. Adding incredible value to the American Standard Strat, these are now fitted as standard, so you get fantastic tone with all the bark and bite that typifies a Stratocaster sound.


Premium comfort neck

The latest incarnation of the all-American Fender Standard Strat employs the hand-rolled fingerboard edges that players love. A super smooth neck finish makes fast fretting a dream and offers great accessibility all the way up the fretboard.


Case and Accessories Included

As with all American-made Fenders, the Standard Stratocaster comes with a hardshell case and all the case candy - Cable, Strap, Polishing Cloth and Trem Arm all included. Everything you need to keep your prized guitar in tip top shape. Nothing quite beats the feeling of unearthing a box-fresh Strat straight from the Factory. Fantastic!
