my friend loves itI bought this guitar as a gift to my friend who is part of this band I joined up with. He said he always wanted a fender so got him one ever since his playing style has been evolving it's so sick. Til this day he can't stop thanking me for it, I heard for myself and I was blown away by it's sound. In short it's a perfect guitar for anyone to own.

This Is Too Good To Be A Mex Strat!I bought this 4 months ago.After playing Ibanez's for the last several years,I needed a change of pace.So,I went out and bought this little bundle of joy.I would put this up against a American Standard any day of the week.The upgrades that Fender has put on this guitar really make it stand out.The jumbo frets make string bending a breeze,and the thicker trem block allows for more sustain,while the shielded compartment gets rid of that annoying hum that used to be so prevailent on the older models.I do own and play other brands besides Fender,but this is the best guitar that I have ever owned.It stays in tune really good,no fret buzz,and most of all,the string height is perfect.I didn't have to do any adjustments at all,which is unusual.Most other guitars that I've bought in the past had needed some type of adjustment to them in order to suit me,but this one,hell no.She's a keeper,and is my no. 1!

Great Versatile GuitarI recieved this guitar as a gift a few years ago and was blown away how good of a guitar it was (especially since I have heard bad things about mex. strats). I didn't even need to have it set up; it was ready for play right off the shelf. This guitar has a great overall tone, and soulds great clean or dirty. However, I have 2 warnings for this guitar: 1) Each individual model is different. I have played many different identical models but they all feel, sound, and play differently. With this said, you may want to play it before you buy it. 2) The single coils can be a bit noisy, especially with a long chain of effects, or with a highly distorted amp, so you may also want to invest in a quality noise reduction pedal like a G-String, etc. /// Overall this is a great guitar to have.

21 YEARS GUITAR / 30 YEARS BLUES HARP....NOT A JEDI YET
STRATOCASTER / SIGNATURE SOUND!!!When I hop on my Strat, I imagine all the great players who have layed down such great tunes...Clapton, Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn and the list is endless....such a classic sound; it just makes you inspired to try to get to that level of guitar playing....is it impossible? yeah maybe,but they too once started out as a youngling, Padawan then Jedi to finally reach..... Jedi Master!!!
