    The American Standard/Series/Professional Stratocaster Appreciation thread

    So, I see many of us own or owned standard US strats, be they called American Standard, Series or maybe even the newly released American Professional...

    Our friend (and my fellow lawyer) Pete (pc) mentioned his two strats and I am eager to see them, as well as any other ones around here. Yes, Willie, I mean you too!

    Some pics of my own 2013 black/rosewood American Standard, dearly named Jessica:









    Though she's still young, she has seen a lot of roads and action.









    This strat is and probably will remain my number one guitar for gigs and everything else. It's entirely stock.

    Sorry, Sérgio. Of my four Fender Strats, none of them are in your category. I have a 40th anniversary aluminum limited edition (1 of 400), a 50th anniversary MIM, a 2016 Artist series (Eric Clapton model), and a 2006 Custom Shop Robin Trower Signature. I guess I can't play.

    No pics that I can remember but I had new 1993 and 1995 Am. Std. Strats. The '93 was so-so. The '95 was a really nice guitar.

    Ch willie, those are so beautiful guitars if I may say so myself. Of course I am completely unbiased....
    A good, screaming Strat just might be the greatest guitar sound of all..... -Slash
