    Awesome Tone and Playability

    This is a great playing and sounding Strat. It also looks great and is period correct down to the last detail. Check out the tones on Fender's website. This thing is great for open chords, barre chords, and power cords due to the 7.5" neck radius but makes the action a little high for single note shredders. Not bad though. I keep the action just high enough to bend without fretting out. You can still bang out pentatonic with moderate speed. It is the tone that will keep it in your hands.

    Mine came with a perfect set up from Sweetwater. I play it at home through a Fender Vibro Champ or with family and friends. What a blast! Hard to put it down.

    I like it better (tonally) than my Fender Custom Shop Deluxe which cost a grand more. Just never cared for the noiseless pickups. First and foremost a guitar must have a straight neck with accurate frets and have great tone. All else is secondary. This one will not disappoint.
