Summary: Fender American series Stratocasters represent the latest evolution of Fender's iconic design. More than a decade of player feedback, culled directly from consumer comments and player input, was incorporated into the creation and refinement of these guitars. From the feel of the neck to the tone of the pickups, the result is a better sounding, better playing Strat. To honor the 60th anniversary of the Stratocaster in 2014, the venerable American Standard Stratocaster is available in a special limited edition model featuring Fender’s innovative channel-bound fingerboard. The Limited Edition American Standard Stratocaster Channel-Bound has its compound-radius fingerboard inlaid into the neck in a design with an elegant appearance and a distinctive fretting-hand feel in which both edges are comfortably rounded, with no side seam between neck and fingerboard. Together with Fender Custom Shop pickups, other great features and the timeless look of a Dakota Red gloss finish, it’s a remarkable Stratocaster experience for the discerning player.

Body: Select alder, Dakota Red gloss finish, solid double cutaway.

Neck: Maple with rosewood fingerboard bound by the maple neck, synthetic bone nut, 25.5” scale length, 1 11/16” nut width, white dot inlays, classic Fender headstock, slim “C” shape.

Pickups/Hardware: Custom Shop Fat 50's Single Coil pickups, Fender deluxe tuning keys, master volume/two tone knobs, 3-ply pickguard, 2-point synchronized tremolo with pop in arm.

Cosmetics: There is small dent on the bottom edge of the guitar that you can only see in the right reflection. There is light buckle rash on the back of the body. There is one small chip in the finish on the back of the body near the bottom strap button. Overall, this guitar is in great shape and the neck is stunning to see. (See Photos)
