What is the difference between the Fender Standard Stratocaster and Fender Standard Fat Strat HSS?
These guitars look almost identical to me. They cost the same. Which one would be most advantageous to a beginner-intermediate player?
the difference is in the pickups
a fat strat has a humbucker (rather than a single coil pickup) for the “bridge” pickup
for a beginner, it probably won’t make much difference.
try listening to the difference in sound to make your decision
but really, if you want a strat, don’t get a fat strat
when you decide you want humbuckers, you’ll get a les paul
