This finish offers the superior look and durability of polyurethane, applied to a thinner undercoat that lets the instrument’s body wood flex, breathe and resonate more freely for a more unconstrained and natural-sounding voice.

Graphite Neck Support Rods

To keep the neck straight and true with even greater reinforcement, American Standard basses feature graphite neck support rods in addition to the truss rod that distribute string tension more evenly and add mass that helps eliminate troublesome dead spots.
