    Excellent guitar for the money
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This is a great guitar. The Texas Special pickups are loud and mouthy with the perfect Strat-like bite. I got mine in surf green and it's beautiful. A great looker and player.

    Well, it's a Strat
    What is your opinion of this product?
    So here's the thing... there's nothing wrong with this guitar that hasn't always been wrong with Strats. If you're used to having to get the neck adjusted, nut replaced, and coming up with a tuning solution if you dare use the tremolo - then this is a fine example of a Fender Stratocaster. The finish is excellent. The fit is a mess. There are gaps in the neck socket I can fit a .73mm pick into. The nut had to be replaced because it was cut poorly. The neck needed to be adjusted. For good measure I also replaced the pickguard and bridge pickup - because I was going to do those things at some point anyway. This is an American made guitar. It's supposed to be better than this. There's a reason there are so many replacement parts for Stratocasters... you need them.

    Worth every penny
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Ordered on a Wednesday, arrived on Thursday afternoon. ( arrival time depends on how close you are to a warehouse ) Like the other review stated. It looks , sounds and plays beautiful . Just had to lower the action a bit for my personal playing preference but I promise you wont be disappointed . One of the nicest Strats out there for a reasonable price.

    USA Special Strat
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Great guitar! I won't go into detail about this USA Special Strat I just received, because other reviewers have already done so. I will say that I ordered the surf green, it arrived yesterday, I have put 5 hours of playing time on this guitar already since then, and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! I like this guitar for the value so much that I will order a candy-apple red version of it soon.

    Great guitar... lousy setup
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Everything is great except the setup was very bad. The only thing that was even close was intonation. Not even playable otherwise. AMS was great as usual but Fender needs to hire inspectors to inspect the inspectors

    Best Strat I have ever owned........
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I am primarily a Gibson guy all hooked up with my Les Paul, SG, ES 335, and Midtown deluxe.....I have tried to love the Strat over the years with various American versions. They just didn't have "that sound" when I played them through my Fender Deville 410. When I recieved this seafoam green beauty I was really pleased with the awesome setup and flawless craftsmanship. Now,for,the sound....wow....it has that pipeline overtones that make any blues or rock musician immediately smile.....and with the smooth roll off the guitar doesn't get muddy and remains clear and articulate. The fretwork was excellent and it is nice to have that 22nd fret. The jumbo frets make fast legato playing a breeze....all in all A+++ for Fender
