Overview

At the end of the resurgent Dan Smith era, Fender introduced a new Stratocaster with only two control knobs and a input jack mounted on the top of the body for 1983 and 1984. This guitar is referred to as the "Standard Stratocaster" (not to be confused with the later Made in Mexico Strat of the same name). 

Unique to this two-year production run were the Freeflyte surface-mounted vibrato tailpiece (no internal cavity), top mounted input jack and third tone knob delete. 

The "Standard Stratocaster" is frequently confused with the "Dan Smith" Stratocaster, which features a traditional Stratocaster tremolo system, and three knob control layout.
