    Great Value

    I own two strats, both Mexican made & both of them I like very much. This one is my favorite though. Not sure if it's because of the maple neck or not (the other one I own is black & rosewood neck) but I'm really glad I pulled the trigger on this one. At first, before I bought it, I thought I'd buy it & upgrade the pups & hardware, but once I got it I loved it so much I didn't want to touch anything. It really is a tone machine. 5 way pup switch is awesome. Cheap, durable, reliable - it's like the AK-47 of guitars. Fender keeps jacking the price up each year because people are starting to come around. Sure the American ones are great quality, no doubt about it but the Mexican is great if you're on a budget. I will never give up mine & this is coming from a guy that has $2,000 guitars.

    Incredible Instrument for the Price

    This strat is one heck of a guitar for the money. The tone is clear, the pickups are very strong, it stays in tune, and the action and intonation were spot on right out of the box. On top of all that, the candy apple red finish is beautiful, esp. with the maple fretboard. I never thought I'd get this much guitar for the money. If you're in the market for a strat, and don't have 1200 bucks to drop, look no farther than this beautiful guitar.

    Fender Strat MIM

    Listen here foks, this strat is unbelievable really. I would like to give it 10 stars but i'm only allowed 5. When Sweetwater says it's ready to play out of the box they are spot on. Get this, I stopped at a local guitar dealer in the area to try out a couple pedals they gave me an American Strat 70's era with a price tag of 1850 on it. IT SUCKED compaired to the one I just bout at sweetwater. Make no mistake this particualr MIM Fender Strat Standard is an absolute ACE of an ax. Just buy it plain and simple

    Beautiful Guitar

    After 20 years, I decided to take up playing the guitar again. But not just any guitar. I had to have a Fender Stratocaster. I would liked to have bought an Eric Clapton Custom Shop Strat, but finances wouldn't allow it. So I settled for a Fender Standard Strat in Candy Apple Red. Did I say settled? To be truthful, I couldn't be happer with this guitar. The finish and workmanship are excellent and the sound is fantastic! I've already blocked the tremolo and am considering some wiring mods, but she is absolutely stunning as is. Its great to be playing again, and great to be playing a genuine Fender Strat. Gotta go. I can hear her calling my name!

    Great For the wallet

    Everything that it came in stock makes Fender meet its standard. The Pickups are bright and clear the stock tuners sometimes go out of tune after a while but that can be quickly remedied with a new set of tuners. Other than that its a great start for the next level!
