Product Description

The Fender Deluxe Players Stratocaster Electric Guitar is a revised version of the former Super Strat.
Upgraded with American-made Vintage Noiseless pickups, this guitar not only sounds great, but with a 12-inch neck radius and medium jumbo frets, it’s a workhorse of a guitar. And, don’t forget about the push button switch that gives the player seven different pickup combinations!

NOT a Super Strat like advertised. Leo Fender is turning in his grave...
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The guitar is a step above the Squier Stratocasters in the electronics department without question, but everything else feels flimsy as though it could never take a thicker gauged string or have a lasting quality, just like a Squier Stratocaster. This guitar would be great for beginners and ok for novices, but if you have played guitar for at least 3 or 4 years, you should really be looking for a more satisfying instrument. It advertises to be a “workhorse of a guitar”, but it isn't at all. It should say, "Great for beginners and people who don't have an affinity for fine instruments."
General
Your general opinion of this product.
I KNOW Stratocasters and this is far from a real model. With thick gauge strings this guitar would not be able to hold up, especially when traveling. I have killed lesser Stratocasters before and this is unfortunately one of them. This will be a nice practice guitar or even the second guitar for a pupil if you can see that he or she is taking to music. Beware the advertisements of American Music Supply as well as Fender because this is not a Deluxe guitar, just a marketing ploy. It lacks the adjustment capabilities as well as the ruggedness of a true-blooded Stratocaster. It is definitely not worthy of the name Deluxe.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Supposedly set up at an authorized plant (per the signatures), this Strat is supposed to be "fine-tuned from the factory," but if that is the case there is already some warping. There is prevalent buzzing and rattling from the strings and the fret board. The guitar’s one saving grace is the warm noiseless pickups and responsive tone pots. That is the only reason I would recommend this guitar to new musicians.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
The stain is pretty thin on the neck, but that is in comparison to my own 1983 Stratocaster (the one this strat is supposed to be "Modeled after"). I did like the grainy finish on the guitar's body though. It is pretty nice.
