Excellent Guitar, Even Better Customer Service
I've always wanted to own a strat style guitar, and I decided to jump on a promotion that Sweetwater ran, and boy am I glad I did! This guitar is a true player guitar in every way. Some people don't like the N3 pickups, but they sound fine to me. Pickups can always be swapped out, but the bones of the guitar are what truly make the instrument worth it. The Ash body is gorgeous, and the feel of this guitar is just pro on every level. I've played many a strat in various guitar shops over the years, but the Americans (and Custom Shops) are definitely on a different level. The deluxe appointments (compound radius fingerboard, locking tuners, curved neck heel, ash body) help give the bones of this guitar a lasting quality. I truly feel like this is a guitar I can own for a lifetime.
And I have to say something about the Sweetwater customer service b/c it is incredible! Every product I've bought has had great customer service with it, and this one did as well. They truly take the time to make sure you are satisfied with your purchase.
