In 1981, the American-made Stratocaster was renamed the Standard Stratocaster to avoid confusion with other models. In 1986, it was renamed the American Standard Stratocaster followed by American Series Stratocaster is 2000 and then the American Standard Series Stratocaster in 2008. In most cases, all of these Stratocasters can simply be referred to as the American Standard Stratocaster. As Fender’s primary production Stratocaster, this model has stayed largely the same since the early ’80s.
