An American Classic
I owned a Stratocaster as a kid back in the 60'. Even back then it was an American classic. This American Standard Strat has all the 'awesome' of the original, and has been updated for the new millennium The sound is bright and clear. The touch is quick and easy and the body is beautifully balanced. The finish is flawless and the overall construction of the guitar top-notch. It is a pleasure to play and own.
I live in a large metro area with dozens if not hundreds of music shops within driving distance, but Sweetwater is my go-to place to satisfy my insatiable appetite for musical stuff. I have made several purchases there and have been fully satisfied with each of them; this one was no exception.
Mark Chapman is my Sales Engineer and Main Man, who is always eager to provide expert technical and musical advice as well as share his own personal experiences with gear even when we both know I'm just in a looking-around kind of mode. No pressure, no BS (except from me), no haggling, no disappointment; just sound advice (pun intended) and professional help.
