A Strat for Friday #67 - Fender American Standard, Sienna Sunburst

Part of Fender's American Standard 2008 Strat lineup, the Sienna Sunburst is a warmer, more buttery looking alternative to the classic 3 tone burst. It's also an ash body for those who prefer ash over alder. The Sienna is the only ash bodied American Standard for 2008 according to Fender.com specs (all the rest are alder).

Be sure to check the unique features in Fender's specs table. Features include staggered tuners and tinted neck. Necks are available in maple or rosewood.

2008 improvements include a new bridge with curved saddles and a "copper-infused" trem block which is supposed to enhance sustain. Speaking of sustain, even though the American Standard series is polyurethane, they say they're thinning it down.

Modern Guitars Magazine has a more detailed feature on the latest American Standard line, in addition to plenty of 2008 Winter NAMM hi-lites.
