PerfectionI didn't know how much I was going to love this guitar. I was hesitant about buying online... now I'm not sure why. Have played an old 69 SG for 15+ years and the neck and the frets are even easier to play it is just perfection. Everything about it is great and from Sweetwater it was set up just right. Having always played Rosewood (also Variax 59) , the maple neck is a dream to play. The vintage tuning pegs work great no slippage and the 5 position along with the boost are amazing. Currently using for home with an AC15 and an HD500. An amazing instrument and also great help from Peter at Sweetwater.

A Different DealThe neck shape, the vintage frets and the TBX combine for a singular, even unique Strat. From a Twin, a Hot Rod, a Vox AC15 - does not matter, it just sounds great. Vintage frets need work more often than medium jumbos, but are effortless and worth the extra attention.
Not my only Strat, but it always makes the trip.

Eric Clapton StratJust received my EC artist strat from Sweetwater. I will say I was nervous about buying a guitar online but the folks at Sweetwater helped me out. I have 2 stratocasters already and I just couldn't get the sound from them that I was looking for.
This EC stratocaster is awesome, I can't put it down. Love the neck and pickups! The active pickups are so nice. There is so much control you can acheive just by playing with the volume and tone knobs. If you want one guitar that does it all than check this out.
