Product Description

The Fender FSR American Stratocaster Rustic Ash Electric Guitar is a unique, understated, yet beautiful instrument with incredibly dynamic tone and undeniable vibe! The never-before-seen brown anodized aluminum pickguard accentuates the the ash body's elegantly wood grain which has a faded satin lacquer finish. This new combination on the American Strat Rustic Ash creates a look that has never been seen before on a Strat but is an instant classic!

Fender also gives this Special Edition guitar premium features including a tinted maple neck with satin urethane back finish for elegant looks and superb feel, along with a 9.5 inch-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets. Three Texas Special single-coil Strat pickups with five-way switching, aged white control knobs (master volume and ‘no load’ tone control), and two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with vintage-style bent steel saddles and high-mass block put the final touches on the remarkable FSR American Strat Rust Ash.

General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
This is not your ordinary looking Stat. That's what drew my eyes to it. I knew I wanted Texas Special pups. All of the features plus a hard case added up to be the best vale for the dollar. This is the first guitar purchase made online and I was always nervous about not getting to try it out first. Not an issue here. Came set up with 9s and was pretty much in tune right out of the case. I play with 10s and once I got those on wow this thang spanks! I was impressed with the care AMS put into every step in my purchase from order to shipping updates. I you are on the fence whether or not to buy online, get off and do it! No regrets. I love this guitar!
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Quality is spot on what I would expect from Fender. I have played a MIM Strat since around 2000. I still love that one too but there is just so much more life in this Rustic Ash Strat. More bark and bite. Mellow but full. More sustain. Most noticeable when applying vibrato while bending a note. On my MIM I know where the note is going to die but on this thing it just gets started. Enough typing gonna go play!
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Besides a bit different neck shape and a bit fatter fret wire than I am used to, this guitar felt like home the instan I picked it up.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Warm and mellow or loud and proud. This thing has it all. I love the way you can feel the sustain vibrate through the body guitar and you get that same vibration from the amp.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
The wood grain of the ash looks awesome against the brown anodized aluminum pick guard. Just the right amount of Arctic White to give it a creamy finish.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
This was a great deal for the money. I also like the fact that it is a limited production FSR run. Not sure how many of these were made?
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Action is about right on out of the box. The only set up I did was adjusting the tremolo claw after I restrung it with a heavier gauge strings.
