Fender American Standard Stratocaster [2008-2012]

SOUNDS


When you couple this guitar with a nice solid clean amplifier such as a Fender twin reverb Fender deluxe amplifier then your are going to get very soulful tone that sparkles in chimes very nicely. These guitars take effects pedals modulation in other sorts of rack effects very well. It really allows the user to use their own dynamics feeling tone and just really complements the playing. If you use this with guitar with a nice high gain amplifier such as a Marshall or Mesa boogie then you're going to get a great solid sick tone that will be great for hard rock all the way up to metal styles of music. There's not much this guitar can't do and that is why it's been probably the most popular instrument and all of music. The ash wood will give you a brighter tone that will sound much more different than an alder wood. The tone will be brighter and have a bit more spring in the voicing.


OVERALL OPINION


You can find guitars very easily and commonly pretty much anywhere you find music gear related stores. Their online and you can easily find them in the use classified sections on many forms or even on craigslist or eBay. Theatre trade instruments and they provide a wealth of tone and feel for the user. You can find them for right around $1000 or so on the new market but I suggest trying a few out to find out which neck feel you really like in the color that complements your taste.

iamqman's review"Sienna is nice"

Fender American Standard Stratocaster [2008-2012]
The Fender Stratocasters are one of those iconic guitars that is basically stood the test of time. It's a great feeling guitar and the sound of it is all to its own. Even though there's been slight modifications and different evolutions of the Fender Strat, the style and the feel and the tone has still pretty much remain the same. It's a great classic rock bluesy guitar that is extremely versatile from genre genre of music. I do appreciate the Siena burst on this guitar because you can see the wood grain through the transparent paint job.

SOUNDS


The tone of the Fender Strat is a nice crisp focus tone that sounds perfect whether it be a clean amplifier or a high again rocking amplifier. Whatever effects or controls that you might use will work well with this is axe just as well. I really like the tone of the neck pick up in the Fender Stratocaster because it has a nice warm bluesy tone that just encompasses the entire style and feel of this guitar. Sure the other two pickups sounds great on the own and work in many applications as well but no other guitar can match the sound and the feel of the neck pick up in a Fender Stratocaster guitar. Overall this is a brilliant instrument and I recommended to any guitarist out there.

OVERALL OPINION


You can find these guitars pretty much anywhere you by musical instruments. Any online retailer or normal guitar shop will carry Fender Stratocaster. Some of them vary from neck to neck depending on the years or the reissues, so just trying out a few to see which neck feel you prefer. These guitars are American built and they usually hover around anywhere between $1000 to about $1600 depending on the features and whether or not it's a signature model.

iamqman's review"Holy cow this is a nice AXE!!!"

Fender American Standard Stratocaster [2008-2012]
The Fender Stratocaster has got to be the best sounding instrument that is ever been created in my opinion. I'm pretty partial to these guitars because they have such a great sound and solid sound for pretty much any music that I played personally. To feel the balance and the weight of the instrument is very conducive to your way I approach the guitar as well. I'm also into Gibson Les Paul guitars but there's just something about that Fender Stratocaster that makes me enjoy playing that much more.

SOUNDS


If you've ever heard Jimi Hendrix and you know exactly what to tell you to get from a Fender Stratocaster. It's can be a nice clean sounding tone compared to to a mahogany wood based guitar with hum buckers such as most Gibson guitars . You are going to get a nice thick susstain that's going to be very conducive and extremely versatile to any style of music that you put it in. It's not could be as thick as you would a Gibson Les Paul guitar this could have a natural sustain that is very pleased to the ears. No matter what amplifier, a effects, or rig that you have this guitar will sound fantastic in all settings.

OVERALL OPINION


You can find a Fender Stratocaster pretty much anywhere you find musical instruments being sold in any online retailer and most regular music shops will sell Fender Stratocaster. Many come in different size shapes and next but overall the natural feel in town is universal. The usually hang around $100 or so which is a great price point for an American built guitar.

It's a solid tone and a great feel and it will match your guitar rig or your effects quite nicely.
