Fender USA Standard Stratocasters

Postby alanbakewell » Sat Sep 22, 2018 5:55 pm

Regarding the USA Standard Stratocaster. Specifically the ones with the Fat Fifties pickups. You remember, the ones that were advertised everywhere
shortly before the new Professional Stratocaster came out.
You know the ones I'm referring to?
Where on earth did they all go?
Being a fan of the Fat 50's pickups, I was looking for one this time last year.
There were a number of adverts ( even left handed ones ). Then, they're all gone.
Did Fender recall them? Did they use the bodies for the new Professional series?
Is it only me that noticed the disappearance of these guitars, or have I imagined it all.

Any comments?

And, while we're at it what happened to the Fender leather guitar straps.
Yes, I know Fender leather guitar straps are available. I refer to the ones
used by the Shadows on the final tour.

Cheers, Alan.
