About This Listing

The American Standard series began in 1986 and has indeed been "the standard" model ever since, receiving updates here and there along the way.  There were only 100 of these red sparkle standards made for the now defunct Mars Music store chain based in Florida, USA. Complete with a matching headstock, this is an uncommon Strat that's bound to hold the attention of the room! 
Equipped with the typical standard layout of 5way selector, 1Vol, 2Tone with neck and center pickups sharing one tone knob and the other dedicated only to the bridge pick up. The original black tolex hard case has a red lining that matches the guitar and looks, well, fiery. The pickguard color has darkened a bit with time but there are no noticeable scratches and there is almost no fret wear. With a nice chunky neck that's not too fat or too slim, this guitar is a joy to play, sounds great and comes highly recommended by our staff.
