    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.

    Great, very playable guitar

    I played demos of this guitar at various music stores before deciding to purchase it at Sweetwater. Let me say, I was not out looking for the best purchase price, but was more or less looking for a new guitar. I tried other guitar brands as well, only to end up with this Strat in my hands before I would leave the store. Long story short, I bought this guitar and have since played it at least 2-3 hours a day. I love the feel of the Modern C neck and pick up selections with the S-1 switching. The color (Tobacco Sunburst) is absolutely beautiful and ia a perfect compliment to the rosewood fretboard. When I received my guitar the "set-up" was exactly the way I wanted it to be (good job Fender and the 55 point tech at Sweetwater). No negatives with this guitar except I'm not a fan of the "duck sound" you get with the pick-up selector in 5th position with the S-1 switch engaged. However, add a dunlop wah and you can get that "Theme from Shaft" guitar intro nailed. All in all, great guitar, great value, and great people at Sweetwater

    THE Best Strat

    I bought this Strat a few years back, and it has been nothing but pure enjoyment to play. The tone is pure Strat, anything for honky twang to spanky blues. It has it all! Some Strat "purists" might not like the S-1 system, but I find that it acts like a second gun in the tone holster, and creates an extra punch. The ASH body not only looks gorgeous, but the tone is unmatched in the Strat world. This guitar covers so much tonal ground; tones from Clapton to Buddy, Robbie Robertson to Rich Robinson, this guitar nails it with its eyes closed. I play everything from Black Crowes' style dirty blues rock to basic blues and even hard rock. This guitar really knows NO limits, unless you're looking for something specific like the mahogany howl heard from most Gibsons, or a high gain sound.

    This guitar sounds beautiful through any amp, solid state or tube; I have played it through Fenders, Bogners, Mesas, Marshalls, Voxes and Buddas, and it sounds phenomenal through all of them, even with the subtle differences in amp style/tone.

    I own a couple of other electrics, both very different than the Strat, and this is the guitar I go to when I need versatility and reliability.

    For the price, it is a no brainer. If you want a Strat that will please you for a lifetime, you will NOT regret purchasing this guitar.
