So today's the big day. I'm buying my brand new American Standard Strat. I'm pretty excited, and while I know it comes with a case, what else is included? I'm just curious; finding things to think about to pass the time until pick up.

i don't know, mine came with plenty of case candy but it was a deluxe.
maybe a standard might come with a cleaner sample and a rag.

Probably doesn't come with anything officially, but if you're buying a guitar (especially in this economy), you can probably knock off about 10-15% off the price, and/or get some freebies.

Well, it says it also includes a strap and cable, I was just curious as to what that might be.

The strap is the part you use to hang the guitar from your neck/shoulders. The cable is the insulated wire that connects the guitar to the amplifier.

Nothing personal, but i literally hate the phrase 'in this economy'. i think i hear it about 20 times a day at my community college....stupid artsy fartsy think-they're-smart people.
Yeah, uh-huh...that's what they all say.

You probably get that Fender strap that so many Fender users use.

#10
Comes with full professional setup, Fender strap (ownz), fender deluxe case, fender noiseless cable and some minor stuff.

I use a Gibson strap with my Fender. It's kinda like sleeping with your sister, it feels the same, but you know it ain't quite right.


I finally got to use that joke!

I don't like Fender straps personally. Levy straps all the way for me.

as well as all mentioned above, there is usually a small manual giving basic set up instructions etc.

the strings will be .009 - .042

not so sure about the 'full professional setup' mentioned above, my last MIA strat was a long way from being set up well.
I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes.

Depending on the store, they may or may not set it up for you (but if you're buying a $1000 guitar, they should definitely give you one). If they don't do it, ask for one.

Funniest and sickest thing ive heard all day.

So far as I know it'll be the case candy, hangtags, Fender instrument cable, and the Fender strap that you see on about every other Fender.
