The Fender Stratocaster is colloquially known as the Strat and has been manufactured by the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation since 1954. The Stratocaster is a double-cutaway guitar with an extended top “horn” shape for enhanced balance. The Stratocaster shape is one of the most-often replicated electric guitar shapes. Guitars that emulate the Stratocaster produced by other manufacturers are often called S-Type or ST-Type guitars.

This model features an improved strum bar for greater precision along with quieter smooth-action fret buttons. The controller requires three AA Alkaline batteries.
