Great Tone!!Great Quality!! Great Price!!
I got my Deluxe Lonestar today, and I love it!! The Ocean Turquoise color is perfect. I went over every inch of this guitar and it is flawless. The action is perfect. The tone from the Texas Specials and the Humbucker are amazing.The maple neck is slick and fast.Over the years I have owned several USA strats. And for a little more, I could have bought a USA Strat. What drew me to the Lonestar, besides price, is that it is already loaded with top shelf pickups. Most of the time when I buy a mid priced guitar, the first thing to go is the stock pickups. Replace them and you have a great sounding instrument. This Deluxe Lonestar is gig ready right out of the box. In my opinion, the build quality of this MIM Fender is as good as the USA quality. Fender really has stepped up on that. I owned a MIM strat over 10 years ago and wasn't that pleased with it. Wow, things have really changed. I own several USA made guitars. This guitar, with its craftsmanship and electronics is right there with them..no matter where it is made. Right now, my two workhorses are made in Mexico and Korea. The Korea guitar, I had to upgrade the pickups.The great thing about this Fender is no upgrades are needed at an awesome price!! Keep up the great work Fender! I also picked up a Gator case for this baby. Those Texas Specials are full blown SRV. I love it!!
As for Patrick, his customer service is second to none. He called to let me know that the strat had shipped and he also emailed me pictures of the exact guitar that I was receiving so I could drool until it arrived. Sweetwater is top of the line in the industry and I wont deal with anyone else. If you want a Gig ready guitar at an amazing price, You better jump on this Fender Deluxe Lonestar!!
