Fender Stratocaster AMERICAN STRATOCASTER HARD TAIL Guitar Review :: Fender Electric Guitars Reviews

legendary rock machine, for players who prefer a non-tremolo American Stratocaster

musical instruments image

For players who prefer a non-tremolo American Series Stratocaster guitar, here’s a handy alternative.
Here’s the new American Strat with a hardtail bridge instead of a tremolo, and all the refinements of the American Series: rolled-edge neck, custom staggered pickup pole pieces, highly detailed fret and nut work. Its non-veneered body with hum/single/hum routing leaves more wood for greater resonance, while its staggered machine heads result in one less string tree.
