The Standard Stratocaster HSH takes the already-blistering Standard Stratocaster HH model and supercharges it even more with the addition of a Standard Stratocaster single-coil pickup between two ferocious Blacktop open-coil humbucking pickups with chrome/black bobbins and a coil-splitting push-pull switch built into the second tone knob that leaves the outside coils active. That means even more sonic versatility in a stylishly distinctive Strat model for modern guitarists who want heavy and aggressive tone.

Modern Neck With "C" Profile
This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary “C”-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) and a smooth back finish. Ideal for those who play with the thumb on the back or side of the neck.
Use the coil-splitting push-pull knob hidden in the second tone control to activate only the outer coils of the bridge pickup and unlock classic single-coil tone.
Pure and simple, this instrument features classic Fender tone styling that evokes and honors the timeless Fender mainstays that came before it and contributed crucial DNA. From the quietest chord to the loudest note, and from the rear strap button to the top of the headstock, it’s the very essence of classic Fender design.
Adding to the lustrous look of the souped-up Standard Strat is an elegant black pickguard for a killer combination of sultry look with monster sound.
