Personally...I F*#Kin hate Fenders. So im not going to tell you which one is better, but i will say if your going to buy offline, I would advise you dont, try and find a shop close to you, especially if your looking for Fender, everyone sells Fender, they are like starbucks. But seriously, play them or something similar.

i reckon the standard is better cuz of the alnico 5 pickups give a heavier distorted sound. the com has vintage pickups, so it depends if u want a vintage strat or a more modern strat

I perfer the look of MN OW, but im not sure about which would sound better. I would take AtThisVelocity's advice and go try one in a shop

Given how well the dollar is doing right now, that is twice as expensive as it should be. An American Standard cost $1000... or about 630 Euro right now. Consider ordering from an American website with a credit card and paying the ridiculous shipping fee... you'll still be better off
